912h with electric lift?

Recommended Posts

Well I was out mowing with the vac trying to get yard cleaned up from the fall.

I shut it off to dump the trailer and now it won't start I can hear the circut breaker clicking and resetting itself. I got it to start once so I could pull it up and now it won't start again!

Any ideas what could be blowing my breaker that's a common issue perhaps?

Thanks for all the help guys!!

P.S my squirrel cage for vacuum is shot from rust and sand blasting from my yard any ideas besides buying another vacuum?

I agree with MikeES that you have a short. Follow the purple wire on the ignition switch on its way to the starter solenoid and look for a rub spot. My guess is your culprit will be in the area of the three safety switches.

Got it guys! I went and tilled my buddies place after dark and I seem the spark on the ground. I crawled under it next time it wouldn't start and I forgot to re tape the front pto safety jumper when I had electrical problems last time!

Check and see if you have a safety connection in the center underneath for a Front PTO switch ? My tractor doesn't have the front pto so it's bypassed and the bypass has to be taped up. Your tape may have come off or rubbed thru.
