    Hi there, my commercial Yazoo/Kees was working fine, I notice that is leaking oil from the left side, so I remove the top engine cover to see where is the leak from, it was really filthy, I spray wash with water, clean everything out with air compressor , put everything back together, whet to start and is dead, no crack, no noise, I check fuse and it was blown, put new fuse and it gets blow after i turn the key switch, on the picture attach to this thread, fuse number 4 is the one that gets blown, fuse number 3 is always fine. Any help I will really appreciated....
    Thank You

    Sounds to me you need to take the top cover back off and look for a pinched wire from re-installing, See if it blows the fuse with the cover off......

    Thanks, I found the hot wire grounding it was making the fuse to blow, it was the connector underneath the carburetor, it connects to carburetor bowl.. Thank You

    I could be wrong but I suspect you're going to have more problems when that mower dries out and you have to re-connect the hot wire... When you have watered the mower down good and it starts to blowing fuses chances are it needs to dry out, I can't otherwise see why it was working before and not now.

    This is only one of many reasons why I use compressed air instead of water to clean engines...
