If your lawn mower battery won`t hold a charge, verify connections are clean and tight first, then connect it to the charger. If it isn`t fully charged within 8 hours, your battery is dead and you`ll need to replace it. If your lawn mower battery does charge fully, the charge should not drain if it is not in use.
In any case, the regulator rectifier converts the AC power into DC power, then regulates the DC power to ensure that the power doesn`t go over around 14.5 volts.
A diode is reverse-biased when the positive (red) test lead is on the cathode and the negative (black) test lead is on the anode. The reverse-biased resistance of a good diode displays OL on a multimeter. The diode is bad if readings are the same in both directions.
Symptoms of a burnt out diode:
The engine will begin to run rough, lack power and eventually stall and not start again. The battery warning light will turn on, warning you that there is a problem with your alternator charging system. The headlights will become dim due to reduced battery voltage.
Allow the charger to power up the battery for up to eight hours. It should have a full charge by this time. If you notice that it`s still indicating a low status, it`s time to replace the battery.
The LED indicator light will flash red while charging. The unit is fully charged when the LED indicator light turns green. While using the trimmer if the LED indicator light turns red you need to plug the device back in to charge.
Once the motor starts, disconnect the negative black clip first, followed by the positive red clip. Be sure to drive the mower for around 20 minutes to give the alternator enough time to charge the battery back up.

Battery?, wiring?? Had a recent problem with blades not engaging. I have had also had a slightly older issue of battery not holding charge so i have to boost or jump start mower. I went out and bought brand new battery and after one usage it would not hold charge and blades will still not engage. Would the issue related to the battery effect the engagement of the blades???
If your Alternator didn’t charging the battery, even though you brand new battery will not last. So there is two possible cause, 1) Your Alternator is not functioning. 2) there is a wiring problem that causing your battery to discharge easily, but you check it after you switch off the key remove the battery negative terminal then touch it back to batt term. and see if there is little blue spark, if does your wiring system got problem. If not, so your Alternator do not charge the battery.
