Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when having to check on the work of  your lawn tractor.

The first thing I would look at is your 12 volt, 100 amp solenoid.   I am sorry in that I can't check for the regulator because to do so, I please need the model nubmer of the engine.   There is a special model number for the engine alone.   If you need further help then I will need that please.

Here is instructions to check your solenoid:

1.  If your riding mower starter does not spin when you turn the ignition key, test the solenoid.

2.  The solenoid is a small black box directly connected to the battery by a red wire. Find that wire, and trace it to the solenoid.

3.  Two large posts are on a solenoid. The red wire is attached to one, and right next to that post, a wire is leading off to the starter. These posts will be directly in line.

4.  Bridge the gap between the posts with your insulated screwdriver. If the starter spins when you make contact, the solenoid is bad; if the starter does not spin, the starter is bad.

If you have further questions please let me know.
Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The symptom you have is likely related to the charging system and I suggest calling a service technician to properly diagnose and repair. If you have a voltage meter, check the voltage across the battery terminals and make a note of the measured voltage. Start the tractor and set the running speed and then measure the voltage across the battery terminals again and it should measure at least 13 VDC or more when running if the charging system is putting out voltage.

If it's putting out 13 volts or more, and the battery keeps going dead, I strongly suggest calling a service technician to diagnose the problem.

I have a similar problem with my LTX-1842. Put a new battery in it and the next time I went to use it, it would not crank, the battery was dead. I was told by a guy at Lowes that it could be a bad voltage regulator. I can't find a voltage regulator on the parts list. Help!

A:

Roger: You will need to look up the parts list of the engine model number. I was not able to locate the type and model of the engine in the parts list. Also, I recommend jump starting the mower with a pair of jumper cables and set the throttle to fast. With a DC voltage meter, measure across the two battery terminals to see if the charging system is producing any voltage. It should be over 12.5 vdc if the charging system is working.

A:

there should be a belt guide (or keeper) that keeps the belt from falling off the pullies when the tension is released. usually each pulley has one and when you put the belt back on and have the brake/clutch not engaged and the belt is tight check each pulley and adjust the belt guide so there is just enough room so the belt does not hit the guide.

A:

There may be something in the pulley causing the problem. Usually the belt keepers on the Troy Bilt machines are very stout and rarely become moved or broken off. Make sure the belt is in good condition and that there is nothing in the pulleys. If everything looks good, let me know the model number from under the seat and I'll see if there is anything else we may need to know about.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
