I hooked up the new battery for my Model #917.276330 backwards.

by Lisa Pool Last activity date:

Model # is 917.276330 27 HP 54 " deck. The battery I bought was backwards from the one it should have been and I didn't notice until after I installed it and tried to start it. It made a whining noise and then nothing. I changed the battery out for the correct one but now it won't do anything. Any idea on what it did to the system? IS there anything I can check to see if I can fix it myself?

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. If the tractor will not make any noise at all, I recommend checking the fuse. The fuse will be located between the small red wire on the solenoid and the red wire on the ignition switch. Follow the red wire from the solenoid to the switch and you will find the fuse. If the fuse is blown, go ahead and replace it. Then check the operation of the tractor. If the tractor does not charge, the problem is the charging system was shorted when the battery was connected backwards. If this happens, please let me know if you have a volt ohmmeter. I will be happy to give you the checks to determine the defective part in the charging system.

 

I hope this is helpful.

 

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

It is easy to connect these backwards. The expert will review and help with the tractor. I did locate the owner's manual if needed and added the Sears Home Services link if a service center is needed.
