Yanmar ym2000 starter issue

Postby Bkfym2000 » Tue Feb 18, 2020 7:34 pm

So the saga continues in this tractor. Suddenly the tractor starts fine when sitting for a while and completely cold, then after running for a while the starter starts smoking. Then when I turn it off and try to start it again, the starter sounds like the battery is dead. It tries cranking but just can’t do it. Any ideas? It wasn’t doing this a few days ago, this is a new issue.

Sounds like your starter gear is hanging in the flywheel and continuing to turn with engine rpm. Maybe ignition not releasing until you turn key to off position?? You are going to have to troubleshoot on sight. Is the starter still working at all?

Yes it still working. Just bogs after the first start. Your suggestion makes a lot of sense. Would that be more of a solenoid problem then? It not retracting the gear after start up? Or maybe something jammed? I’m going to try and take it apart tomorrow. Since I can’t finish troubleshooting the loader issue if it’s not running and pushing hydro fluid.

Not sure, if you can pull the starter, hook wiring up or leave hooked up and engage it, turn key to run and see what it does.
