New at this, so bear with me. I have two ride on mowers. I had the 1000 series Cadet. Everytime I used it. Seemed I had to work on it. Plus it kept eating belts. The engine ran good. But last thing this mower started doing was. After riding and mowing for about a few minutes. It would blow the 20amp fuse. The other mower I have is a Craftsman Mower. This mower I had always liked and I had added all new matching tires and new transaxle and rebuilt the deck and all new OEM belts and at a time. A new 17.5 Briggs and Stratton engine. That engine had thrown a rod since then. So I have a rolling chassis with a blown engine. I didn't try to figure out why the cadet was blowing the 20amp fuse. I had removed the engine from the Cadet and it was pretty much plug and play at putting it in the craftsman. This mower cut really nice, even better than the Cadet. But after about five minutes of usage. The engine shut right down. The 20amp fuse had blown! Looking into trouble shooting for the electrical short. All of what I have found in my searches is the tests you would do for the electrical harness, the key switch, etc. But I don't need to check these. Whatever is shorting it out, a delayed shorting out. Has to be on the engine. I didn't reuse the wiring from the Cadet. I used the wiring that was on the Craftsman.
