White Outdoor Lawn Tractor 2150

Dear Sir:
My White Lawn Tractor 2150 panel displays a red discharge light anytime a load is applied (headlights,PTO, etc) It has recently had a tuneup and runs like a champ!

Could it be the alternator? And where is it located? Also ratcheting the ignition switch seems to bring off the light temporarily.

Please respond to

If you have a battery charger, charge the battery. You can determine if the starter is good by by-passing the solenoid and jump starting the starter. First make sure all connections are clean and tight- from the battery to solenoid, to starter and make sure the negative cable is connected to a clean part of the frame.
To jump start the starter take a jumper cable (car jumpers) and connect one red end to the battery Positive Terminal of the battery, and connect the other red clamp to the large terminal of the starter. You can just momentarily bump the starter, by just hitting the clamp. Or do the opposite -connect one clamp to starter and bump the pos. terminal on the battery. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT GROUND OUT THE CLAMP ON THE STARTER BODY! If the starter works and turns the engine over, the problem is the solenoid If the engine does not turn over as it should, then the starter is bad..

Not sure on this specific mower, but oil is usually there to lubricate and keep the temp down. When theres none in it, it gets hot and melts the pistons. Sounds bad to me

When you start to have this problem loosen the fuel cap and see if that makes any differance,there is a small vent hole in the cap that can get plugged.When it gets plugged your fuel tank will develop a vaccum and cause you engine to starve for fuel.Im not sure on this model but the older 100 series had a problem with the fuel line being pinched between the frame and the tank.
