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.
It has an internal combustion chamber, an alternator, a 12-volt lead-acid battery, etc. A riding lawn mower with an especially small engine may have a 6-volt battery. The lawn mower`s alternator keeps its battery charged.
One of the most common reasons the battery light comes on and the car battery stops charging is because of corrosion. Whether the corrosion is on the battery cables or cable terminals, it is still a problem that needs to be addressed. Another common culprit for the battery not charging is a problem with the alternator.
Set it for 12 volts, which is the standard in the industry. Most lawn and garden devices have this voltage rating as a way to keep consumers safe from any shock.
Riding mowers use a 12 volt electrical system. The battery should have 12.6 volts when fully charged and in good condition.
Here are a few common causes for voltage regulator failure: Damaged ground wire. Corroded or worn-out battery terminal. Loose battery connection.
A FLASHING red indicator light means that the battery is either too hot or too cold and cannot be charged. will start automatically. FLASHING red/green indicator lights mean that the battery cannot be charged and must be replaced.

The motor may have overheated and burned open. Use a multimeter to check resistance across the battery contacts in the tool with the switch closed. If it reads open, the motor has failed.

TROY BUILT RIDING MOWER MODEL13AX60KH011 – Troy Bilt 175HP Manual 42" Riding Mower
My troy built starts but will not speed up enough to use even after it warms up. It is 2 years old but only has 3-4 hours of use on it . Can you help me?
Is it 2 cycle or 4 cycle? Meaning, does it take plain gas, or mixed gas?Clean the plug, clean the carb with either choke cleaner (4 cycle) or wd-40 (2 cycle) by spraying it into the choke hole after you take off the air filter.You may also want to spray some of the choke cleaner or wd-40 into the gas tank with the gas to help clean out the whole fuel system.Only use choke cleaner for 4-cycle regular gas units. For mixed gas, use wd-40 in place of choke cleaner.Try to start it and then go back and forth from half choke to full choke until it starts picking up.
Hello, My 31 cc troy built blower won’t start. It’s got spark. When I pulled the brand new plug it appeared to be completly dry. I sprayed ether in the cylinder and put the plug back in and it started for a brief moment. Not sure what’s going on. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
If the either burned, then you have a fuel problem. Make sure the fuel filter (in the tank) and the lines are all clear. If so, then you my need to rebiud the carburator.
Troy built 4 cycle trimmer wont turn attachments -fixed?

Troy built mower has gas and spark with new plug will not start ,it does not even cough or sound like it is going to start,ran perfect when last ran.
Take off the air filter cover and shoot a little gas into the carb.
if it sputters you probably need to have the carb cleaned.
2009 Self propelled Troy Built with briggs and stratton won’t start. It ran fine until I added (fresh) gas in it. The last time this happen the repair shop said it was the gas and they changed the spark plug. When I got the mower home I asked the repair shop about the gas that was still in the tank and they said you may want to change it. That leads me to believe they didn’t change any of the gas that was in it, but now it runs. What did they do? So is there something I can do? I changed the spark plug still no go. I poured a little gas in carb and it ran for the amount of time gas was in carb, then it died.
Drain the gas (not because of what shop said). Unscrew the brass bolt that holds the float bowl onto the bottom of the carburetor. Be careful, there is a small washer in between the bolt head and the bowl bottom. Remove the bowl. Clean out the bow. Now, clean the brass bolt. There are holes in the bottom and in the sides where the smooth part is. Use no metal wires. Clean with tooth picks if necessary. Reassemble. This is a real common problem, especially if no in-line fuel filter is used. You may want to install one and don’t let old gas evaporate in the mower.
