Re: (ET) Dead E-15
An issue with CB-1, the large Klixon® thermal limiter in the traction
motor, or it's associated wiring could well cause the issues you have

Subject: (ET) Dead E-15
I have an E-15, 26AE15BA, that has worked wonderfully well until last
week. After having mowed the lawn I drove it into the garage and put
the charger on. Trying to move it the next day: no meters, no lift, no
anything. I checked both sides of the disconnect and can measure
battery pack voltage to battery negative and...also to the chassis. No
cables appear to be "grounded" to the chassis.
Is there an obvious problem here, like a charger failure (which still
seems to work fine) since that was the last part of the tractor that was
operating before "failure". I do have schematics but my troubleshooting
techniques are pretty poor.
Thx in advance for your tips/techniques/hints/guesses.
