How to Troubleshoot a Dixie Chopper

As a family-owned business since 1980, Dixie Chopper produces a mower that lasts several years after you purchase one. Some of the Dixie Chopper mowers include the Iron Eagle, Magnum, Silver Eagle, Xcaliber and the Eco-Eagle. Troubleshooting your Dixie Chopper will help you save time in service calls. Your mower comes with a two-year warranty, which pays for repair or replacement costs, including labor.

Step 1

Clean the electrical connections of your Dixie Chopper using an electrical contact cleaner if the starter will not crank. There may be loose or corroded electrical connections. Use dielectric grease, which prevents corrosion by sealing out moisture on the electrical connectors.

Step 2

Position the throttle control between the "Slow" and "Fast" positions if your Dixie Chopper engine will not start or does not continue running. The engine speed is controlled by the throttle, which you will find next to the steering speed control lever on the right side.

Step 3

Adjust the tire pressure by inflating to 12 psi on the front tires and 7 psi on the rear tires if you notice an uneven cutting height or if your Dixie Chopper pulls to the left or right.

Step 4

Shut the engine off and remove the ignition key. Fill your Dixie Chopper fuel tank outdoors if the engine will not start or will not keep running. Use only fuel from a licensed compressed natural gas (CNG) supplier. Be careful when using this highly flammable fuel.
