Before servicing or repairing any power equipment, disconnect the spark plug and battery cables.

Some precautions need to be observed:
Turn the unit off and remove the key.
Disconnect the spark plug(s).
Wear heavy leather gloves when working around the cutting blades.
Never defeat the interlocks installed by the manufacture.
Do not leave guards or deflectors off when you are done.
Most important, read your owner's manual.

Basic Troubleshooting
The next thing to check are the basics.
Did you just install new blades? Are they on upside down? This happens quite often.

How's the tire pressure? If the tire pressure is not as recommended per the manufacture, the deck could easily be off by a 1/4" from side to side, especially if one side has more air than the other.

Is the deck itself level? With the blades side to side, they should measure within 1/8" of each other. Then with the blades side to side, the front should measure 1/8" lower than the rear. The adjustment nuts will be located to the side and front of the deck and attached via rods to the deck.

Step Cutting
Step cutting is sharp ridges left in the lawn surface. Step cutting is usually caused by mower deck damage, misadjustment, or mower blade damage. Normally the deck just needs to be re-leveled. To check for this:
Park the unit on a flat surface.
Manually turn the blades perpendicular with the direction the tractor is sitting.
Measure the outer tip of the left blade to the surface your parked on (don't measure from the deck shell, it has to be from the blade tip).
Write the measurement down.
Go to the right side of the tractor and measure from the tip of the right blade to the surface.
The two measurements should be the same. If the measurements are a 1/4" or more off, it needs to be corrected. The next thing to do is to turn the blades and measure again. If the measurements are not the same, one of the blades is probably bent. Other things to check for are damage to the deck shell, and bent or loose spindles.

Streaking is another common complaint. Streaking is when thin strips of uncut grass are left behind the mower. Streaking is usually caused by operator error or poor blade maintenance. Streaking can occur if the engine speed is too low. All mowers are designed to run at full throttle. Believe it or not you are doing more harm to your engine by running it slower than full throttle when you are mowing. Blades need to be spinning at the correct blade tip speed. They need to be sharp and not have too much wear on the uplifts. The speed and uplifts pull the grass up just like the barber lifts your hair up with a comb to get a straight cut. The air movement within the cutting deck is very important. Decks plugged with grass clippings can not move the air the way they were designed to do.

Design of the Tractor & Deck
Another cause of both streaking and step cutting is the design of the tractor and deck themselves. If the operator does not over lap the cutting row enough or makes very tight turns, marks can be left in the lawn. The easy way to see the cause of this is to use a jack to raise one rear wheel of the tractor a little off the ground. If your tractor does not have a full free floating deck doing this will cause the deck to tilt. This tilting in tight turns and when one wheel is lifted higher than the other by uneven ground contours will leave marks. The only fix for this is to slow down, make wide turns, over-lap cuts, or buy another tractor with a free floating deck.

Scalping is when the mower deck comes close to or hits the ground. Scalping can be caused by the mower deck misadjustment, unevenness in the lawn, or by the mower deck bouncing because the ground speed is too fast. Check the mower deck for misadjustment, slow down or raise the deck if its too low.

Anytime you're disconnecting or reconnecting wires involving supplemental restraint system (air bags), you should always disconnect the negative terminal from the main battery first.

The risk of the airbag deploying is extremely low, but always better to be safe when working with such powerful devices. Also, if you don't disconnect the battery, you also run the risk of causing a possible fault code to trip as the system will now detect an issue with the restraint system and the code could possibly only be reset by a dealer or by using an expensive OBDII tool.

Also, if you're detailing, There should be no need to even disconnect the front seats unless you were removing them.

E001 is a fixing unit temperature error codes.

The fixing unit applies high temperature and pressure to melt the toner particles into the fibers of the paper. The temperature of a fixing unit must be sufficient in order to adequately melt the toner particles. Usually, an electronic component called a thermistor is used to measure and control the temperature. If the temperature does not reach a specific level within a predetermined time, it sends signal to the main control board to stop the machine and displays the error code.

Fixing error codes should be reset by a professional only. Thermistors, heater lamps, thermostats and other parts must be examined carefully before resetting the E001 error code.

After the parts have been carefully examined and fixed, then the code can be reset.

To reset the code, enter the service mode by pressing "Additional Function," followed by pressing "2" and "8" simultaneously, and then pressing "Additional Function" again.
Then go to COPIER--FUNCTIONS--CLEAR--ERR. Here you can reset all error codes on by one.

While there are several potential issues, the most common is low refrigerant. The level of refrigerant in your system decreases naturally over time (very, very slowly), but leaks can also occur.

A quick way to test would be to see if there's power going to the clutch relay on the compressor. If there's power, then your refrigerant level is normal and the issue lies with either the clutch, or the compressor itself.

If there's no power going to the relay, then more than likely you have low refrigerant. This can decrease naturally (very very slowly) or you have a leak.

To properly determine if you are low on refrigerant, you will need to attach pressure gauges and have the refrigerant removed and weighed to and compare that to what your vehicle should have (label for weight of refrigerant will be found on a label under the hood). A quick way that's not recommended is to quickly press the low pressure valve on the refrigerant line. If there's pressure and it hisses loudly, then you could just be low on refrigerant. If there's no pressure, then you have a leak. This is not recommended as you should not be venting refrigerant into the atmosphere.

There are home recharge kits that people can buy at local auto parts stores. Those can work so long as you're just low on refrigerant and there are no leaks or other issues. If there is a leak, then you will need it serviced. Do no use those recharge kits with with built in leak sealants as those will gum up and clog your system.

Nothing is broken and you don't need to print off anything or order anything. There is simply too much water in the drainage tank.

Unscrew the spicket at the rear bottom of the units and pull out the plug. Let the water drain. It will work again immediately.

Replug. Rescrew. Enjoy.
