Question and Answers

Q:

Is there a voltage regulator on my mower?

A:

The charging system consists of an alternator and regulator. The alternator can be tested with a volt meter.

I added the wiring diagram in the image below. The two outside terminals on the regulator is the AC voltage input from the stator and the center terminal is the DC voltage output. You can disconnect the alternator wires at the regulator and measure the AC voltage across the two wires as shown on the wiring diagram. The alternator should produce 28 volts AC at 3600 RPM. If the voltage is correct the alternator is OK. Reconnect the two stator wires to the regulator. The red wire coming off the regulator should produce an output of 13.8-14 volts DC or 15 DC amps at 3600 RPM. If the amperage is correct, the battery is bad. If the output is not 15 amps or 13.8 to 14 volts DC, replace the regulator.

Guess I'll have to try to check out the attatchment clutch adjustment because it burned out my new switch already.

A:

If the PTO switch is burning out then it may not be the clutch itself (but it could be). Down where the tractor harness connects to the PTO harness, check to see if there is a diode there. If there is a diode, it's probably burnt out and causing power to backfeed up the line to the switch. If there is no diode, then it's most likely to be the PTO clutch (since the diode would be built into it). If there is a diode, cut it out and take it to a local electrical parts house and have them match it up for you. Make sure to note the position of the diode so you can put a new one in the same direction.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
