    Anyone ever have their radiator fan stop? Happened once before when was brand new b/c dealer never put on the bracket to hold it inplace. That time the wire harness was cut through from rubbing. This time everthing is in tack. No signs of distress. Think it is just time or is there some fuse or something?

    i've seen quite a few motors fry because of this. Partially because the alarm on the unit isn't working when it begins to overheat. We find alot of bad connections and relays going bad. Alot of wiring on these units.

    Keeping the mower really clean underneath but it's a good think you caught the malfunction before it was too late !!!.
