Craftsman 19" Electric CORDLESS 48 Volt Lawn Mower

The battery seems dead, I have tried to charge. How do I get under the top cover? I know it has to do with the four holes in the top and that you need a flat head, but I cannot seem to get it off? Help!

    When the safety key is not fully inserted and then the starter is pulled things get out of alignment. How do I fix this problem myself as the repair shop says it is a 5 second fix.

I was mowing in light grass and hit a tree root. the mower quit, batteries are fully charged. can anyone suggest a way to remove top cover? I suspect that i'm going to be confronted w/a printed circuit board with several silicon controlled rectiviers on it. I'm a legally blind ex electronics tech.

The easiest way to get to the batteries is to take off the three bolts that hold the motor on to the chassis. After that take a flat head screwdriver and depress the little metal holders from the plastic, It took a little shaking to get it loose. dont give up. Then you discover your four batteries.

Battery not fully charging on a Craftsman 48 volt electric mower model #...

Model # 247.37048.0 Check battery voltage. There are four 12 volt batteries on board. First make sure batteries are charged for one hour. Do not overcharge batteries while there is a bad battery in the system. Now it's time to pull off the cover by pushing a flat head screwdriver thru one of four holes on the sides of the black cover. Press slightly down on black cover and pull slightly up as you are pushing inward. Continue one the other three. You are wanting to push the black part attached to the cover back and away from the white part holding the cover down. Picture shows black cover tab that you will push slightly back. in towards the mower. Remember, it's a tab that is straight back and only has to be moved an 1/8 of an inch towards the motor.


Make sure not to pull the cover all the way until you have disconnected the meter that's connected to the cover. Next, take a voltage meter and check the voltage on each battery. The batteries are towards the back of the mower. Use a voltage meter that tests at least 15 volts. Check each battery by placing the red lead on the red battery post or tab. Replace any battery that doesn't read better than 12 volts.

Sounds like the machine stopped charging,usually caused by a faulty rectifier/regulator or a bad connection to it.Try either charging the battery for an hour or so or you can put booster cables from your car to it and then if everything is ok you need to fix the charging system,or replace the battery[once they are sulphated they will not take a charge even if the charge system works].Check the connections to the battery as well and if you can test the tractor when it is running and see if the voltage stays between 14 and 15 volts.Let me know how you make out.

The alternator is built into the starter. Check with a volt meter to see if you have at least +13v while mower engine is running. Could be a bad battery.

it could be the stator in the engine check the voltage with the volt meter when its running if its low check connections on battery & voltage if its below 12.5 volts then its the stator but the only thing is the engine should run with-out the battery so there is something else going on there is a fuse in the electrical system if theres a short that fuse will blow & engine will stall

Battery discharing light is on

Does your tractor have electric clutch ? With the switch turned off try removing positive battery cable you then try touching cable to post if you get a spark you have a short in system you could also charge battery and remove positive cable from battery over night to see if battery stays up to check battery,you also have a alternater under flywheel to charge battery you should be getting an output of about 14 volts most likely not the problem

Where is the fuse for Craftsman 17.5 HP 42 Riding Mower

I'm not sure the solenoid/relay would even energize at 10 volts (so you may not hear the clidking).

The battery is essentially dead at 10 volts -- try charging again for 4 hours or so, and then measure the voltage.

If it's not up near 12 volts, you have a dead cell and need a new battery.
