Q:

Mower Model # 917 374 100

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the mower. If you have replaced the ignition coil and still are not getting spark, I recommend checking the air gap. The air gap is the space between the ignition coil and the magnets on the flywheel. This space should be set to 0.011". If you have the air gap set correctly, I recommend removing kill wire (the small usually green wire) from the ignition coil. Then recheck for spark. If you have spark with the kill wire removed, the problem is a shorted kill wire or the engine brake is not working. First, inspect along the kill wire. If the insulation looks good and there is not any bare part of the wire touching any metal parts of the engine the wire is likely fine. The problem will likely be in the engine brake assembly. When you pull the engine control bail down the cable pulls on the engine brake lever. This lever does two things. The first is it releases the brake and second it disconnects the kill wires path to ground. If the lever is not pulled far enough, it releases the brake but keeps the kill wire shorted to ground. To check this, you need to remove the top of the engine as you did when you replaced the ignition coil. Then tie the engine control bail against the handle. Once it is tied down, look where the kill wire connects to the engine brake. The lever should not be touching the copper colored part. If it is, try bending the engine brake where the cable housing connects. Sometimes this will move the lever enough to open the connection. If this does not work, the cable is stretched or the brake is defective.

 

If you still do not have spark with the kill wire disconnected the problem is either a defective ignition coil or the magnet on the flywheel is weak. The magnets on the flywheel hardly ever fail. If the magnets will attract a shank of a screwdriver, it should be ok.

Q:

what does E 21 error code mean?

A:

I am posting the error code E21 from the technical manual below.

E21- Lost Speed Sense Error This error appears when the console does not receive a speed sensor signal when it is expecting to (the speed is set higher than 0.0 MPH). If the belt moved slightly prior to the error appearing, the cause is with the sensor, positioning of the sensor, or the wiring from the sensor to the console. If the motor did not move at all prior to the error appearing, check the motor, controller, and wiring connecting the console, power board, controller, and motor.
