Question about Garden

1 Answer

Toro Z4200. 60 hours. The starter has always seemed balky but never failed to start. Now, with a completely charged battery, it would not turn over although it sluggishly tried. Seemed as if the starter was not getting enough voltage. Now the problem is it blowing the fuse. I disconnected the starter from the solenoid and it still immediately blows the fuse when the ignition switch is turned to start. It is still under warranty but if it's something easily identified (like needs new solenoid or ignition switch) I'd rather just replace the item instead of loading it up to drive it 50 miles where it will sit for God knows how long. Thanks!

If you touch it , the warranty is void
best talk to the service dealer and get written permission before you touch it
blowing fuses is a dead short after the fuse
could be a problem solenoid ( dead short inside )

SOURCE: My riding mower blows fuses once you turn the key.

Sounds like you are on the right path, maybe some wires on the ignition were replaced backward, and you are sending +12v directly to ground? Does it blow right away?

SOURCE: fuse keeps blowing

In my experience...if it blows the fuse as soon as you turn the key, under the flywheel, there is a stator that recharges the battery when the engine is running, remove the flywheel, in most cases the magnets under it are broken and are in direct contact with the stator. If that is the case, both must be replaced

Replace the battery. Even though the battery may say it's good, it doesn't have enough of cranking amps. Go purchase a battery with 350 cranking amps. This will fix your problem. The battery power isn't enough to kick the starter completely up to turn the engine.

I have a Toro 16.5 riding lawnmower it stop and wouldn,t start back what could be my problem?


Battery charged? Bad fuel? Low on oil? 30w oil required. Clean carb. Check for improper ground on starting circuit. Ignition switch providing power to starter when key turned? Always use Stabile in gas. Remove bowl from carb ensure float is working properly. Float up no fuel flow, float down fuel flow. Ensure oil is full, low oil shutoff will not allow starting.

Toro ride on wont start


Battery required? Charge battery or replace. Replace air filter and spark plug. Dump out old oil and replace with 30w oil. Electric start may have a fuse blown. Dump out old gas fill with new with Stabile always added to gas. Try spraying starter spray in carb at air cleaner with filter removed. All mowers have a low oil sensor to prevent starting on low oil. Remove bowl from carb, should be full of gas. Pinch off fuel line with pliers or turn fuel valve off. Check float should be hanging down allowing fuel flow. Float up stops fuel flow.

The starter won't completely turn over even though


Sometimes on the Briggs and Kohler engines, the compression release fails to operate at the proper time or is malfunctioning. A remedy for this is to remove the valve cover(s) and adjust the OH valves per the manufacturers specifications. This enables much easier starting, produces less wear and tear on the starter and may allow your new battery to completely turn that engine over. Out of adjustment valves mimic a weak or failing battery quite well and the engine hangs up on the compression stroke because the compression release system is not working properly. Adjust those darn valves.

Toro Lawn Mower Electric Start Won't Engage


you'll need to pull the starter. It sound like your Bendick's is bad. that's the upper gear drive assay. the only other res ion would be, low power to the starter, and not receiving an acquit amount of amp to reach the rpm's it needs. good luck

New battery won't take charge


Hello, and how are you. It could possibly be the charger itself If everything else seems fine. If all wire connections at the starter and the battery are tight, clean and no cuts any where on the wires them selves.I would try a new charger. Another thing is you could see if someone could check the wires with a meter to see if there are any unnoticeable breaks in the wires.
