I have a 2010 GT 6000. This mowing season, the battery started  getting weak and needed charging in order to start. Last month I replaced the battery from one at Sears. I charged it fully, used it mowing and now three weeks later it was dead (only about 11% charge on it). I jumped it off and it was in use mowing for about two hours. Immediately after that, the battery was still dead. I 'm thinking something in the electrical charging system. Any suggestions? Thank you.

:wave: Welcome to the forum! Have you got a Model # (should start with 917.???? or similar)? Might be able to go to Sears Parts online to get a wiring diagram. May be as simple as a fuse has blown or bad connection somewhere.

Welcome, I have the older Craftsman models, and with the correct 917.xxxx model I am sure I can help. The Model # should be under the seat.
