howard rogers here is the wiring info for an mtd yardmachine. i can senda schematic if you need one. mtd wiring color code

headlights,________1 green (goes to ignition switch) & 1 blue (goes to headlight switch).
light switch,_______1 blue (goes to headlight) & 1 white (goes to engine)
seat switch,_______1 yellow/white(goes to brake/clutch switch)
& 1 yellow/black(goes to deck switch)
deck switch,______1 orange/white (goes to starter relay) 1 yellow(goes to
brake/clutch switch). 1 orange/black(goes to brake switch) 2 yellow/blacks 1 (goes to seat switch) the other goes to a connector with a yellow wire?
ignition switch,____2 green wires 1(goes to ground) (the other goes to headlights)
starter relay,______2 battery cables 1(goes to + side of battery) other
goes to starter. 1 red wire goes from positive side of relay to 20 am fuse. 1 orange/white wire (goes to deck switch)
20a. fuse holder,___1 red(goes to + side of starter relay. 1 red/white (goes to ignition switch)
brake/clutch switch, 1 orange(goes to ignition switch) 1 orange/black(goes
to deck switch) 1 yellow/white( goes to seat switch)
2 yellows, 1 (goes to the engine) other (goes to the deck switch).
engine,___________ 1 red/black(goes to ignition) 1 white (goes to light switch) 1 yellow (goes to deck switch)

howard rogers how it works. nuber one the first thing to do is upgrasde the battery cable from the relay to the battery. it is too light. the deck has to be raised all the way up for the enginre to start. if you aree sitting on the seat with the deck engaged you break the connection bewtween the engine and ignition. if a deck switch goes bad it will give you a multitude of headaches. you can have it raised all the way up and it still wont start. the brake/clutch switch will keeop you from starting it with out you pushing on the pedal but it will not kill thew engine unless you don't have the deck all the way up which energizes the belt for the mower. coils can go bad. to check coil you have to remove the shroud and do a resistance test on it, but before you do be sure you are getting fire to the coil. the red/black wire goes through the ignition switch. one way to test it is to run a jumper from the battery to the engine and if your starter will energize it will start even if you have a switch problem. this is a trial and error system of course. e mail me and i will send a wiring diagram as i traced irt off of my mower acircuit at a time(time consuming but worth it,)
dwayne truex i have a old lowes mtd tractor it has 12 hp,i am having trouble with the wires going to the ingention swicth who ever had this mower took upart the harness all i have are separte wires and i keep burning out the coil.the way they had that it hard to trace them with a diagram,can you help thanks dwayne

Re: MTD wiring diagram

when did mtd buy out cub cadet. I have a 1420 hydro cub that I just bought used on the internet.

I cant find any help on the cub website and thought it was made after mtd purchased the company. can anybody help me figure out my wiring problem. i want to bypass all the safety switches and just get it to start so i an move it. thanks

AMF I have the same elect. problem as everyone else. Someone before me messed with it. I put in a new switch and solenoid. Cannot get this thing to start. The starter will work, I jumped a wire over to it, still spins, if a little weak. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of the safety switches? Clutch plate does not even hit the switch. Do not know if deck switch should be up or down to start. I am not using the deck on this to mow with, only to pull a cart for yard work. Thanks, Tony

Mike Ambery Smith I have bought an old lawnflite garden tractor. it works, but roughly. It sais 18 44 on the side. i can't see any other numbers on the machine - it has had a bodge modification or two in its time. it has a twin cyl B&S engine.

don payne I have a digram for the old mtd 1400 series if that will help any one but I need to know how to hook up a three prong starter switch to the engine
brandon if its motor parts you need you have to use the model,spec code and date code to determine the engine in order to get parts.this number is usually located on the blower housing. for parts relating to the mower itself you will need to use the model and serial number usually located under the seat on the back portion of the mower or possibly on the frame in order to get those type of parts. hope this helps some
