mid engine rider

It can be very frustrating and aggravating when your mower starts acting up. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the unit. At this time, I was unable to locate information that would be helpful in regards to your question. Some of these questions that are asked will need specific research and will be answered by an expert with-in two business days but usually sooner.

I want to make sure I understand what the problem is so I can help you. You said the mower stops after you get off and restart 5-6 times. Do you mean that you start the mower and then get off of it and start it back 5 or 6 times and then it won't start anymore? If so, when it won't start, does it spin and not start or does it simply do nothing?

If you mean that the engine will spin 5-6 times but then not start, then I would say that it's likely to be the ignition switch.

Let me know a little more about the circumstances and we'll see if we can get it worked out.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

When I used the lawn sweeper attachment, I would get off to dump the contents. The rider shuts off for safety reasons and I restart it every time I got back on. After getting back on 6 or 7 time the battery has run down and gone completely dead. It was a brand new battery. It started right up the first time up until the 6th or 7th time, then the battery was dead. This has happened with two new batteries. It gives no indication the battery is draining until it the last time I try and it's gone. Thanks

I have a feeling that the charging coil (alternator) has failed on your engine. It's worth mentioning that if you're not running the engine at full throttle when driving it that the battery can go dead from this because the engine needs to run at full throttle to charge fully.

If you look around on the engine you should see a red wire coming from under the engine shroud. You can check for voltage there when the engine is running at full throttle. You should read about 13volts DC. If you read less than 12.8volts DC then the alternator is not working as it should.
