Re: (ET) Overheating Problem
What exactly is the Klixon on the mower motor and how would you go
about checking it?

Poor connections = high resistance = lotsa heat. That's another
avenue that needs to be explored.Another road to take is
this............do any of the Klixons® on the mower motors ever open?
The motor that takes the most abuse is usually the center
one. On the front mount mowers especially since the deck gets bent
and the front part of the blade's path is closer to the ground.If
THAT Klixon® fails closed, under those conditions wiring and
terminals will pay the price.
When mowing one of the front battery wires on my E12s gets
so hot at the terminal that it melted the thin plastic safety
cover that was touching it. I noticed several other battery tops
getting warm also, but this one wire gets hotter than the others.
What could be the cause?
