Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. If the tractor is not charging, I recommend checking all of the electrical connections first. If it still does not charge after checking the connections you will need a voltmeter to check the voltage output at the engine. If you have a meter and feel confident in checking voltage, locater the two-pin connector on the side of the engine that has the red and black wire. Then disconnect the plug and turn the meter to check DC voltage. Connect the red meter lead to the red wire from the engine. Then connect the black lead to a bare metal part on the engine. Once you have the leads connected, start the engine and run it at full speed. With the engine running, you should have a reading of at least 13.5 volts. If you do not have this reading, I recommend replacing the stator. The parts can be ordered from the following link. Replacement parts for Briggs and Stratton engine model 31P777-0296-E1 If you do have the proper voltage, the problem is in the wiring between the engine and battery. Just trace the wire back to find the break. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark
