18 Amp Charger Wiring Diagram

I purchased the Lifan 15 HP 420 cc OHV Electric Start Horizontal Keyway Shaft Engine with 18 Amp Charger from Home Depot online. I need a wiring diagram for the external 18 Amp Charger. The owner's manual doesn't cover the wiring of this unit. I have contacted Lifan USA with no luck. Thank you, Ross

Hi, Just bought my 2nd Lifan, this time a 15hp 420cc OHV. would it matter if I put a second regulator on it (SH573-12)?

Had to replace a motor on my Ride on mower after the side blew out! prices to replace were out of this world and twice told to buy a whole new lawn mower, 18grand. Found that the Lifan 15hp dimensions looked about right and 3hp more powerful. Great buy and slotted in just great after some cutting and welding, and cutting and welding. I wanted to use the old electric wiring loom as it had all these fail-safe cut outs.... motor cuts out if you get off seat in blade activated gear,, won't start in drive, beeper when catcher is full etc. Took it to a sparky as the three wires from the motor has 2 females and one male and the loom had two 2 females and one male ( not as straight forward as I thought), well the sparky said arrh there is another charger there (SH53-12) and didn't know if the charging system could go through both. I am pretty sure the "other" had both! I think I may have answered my own question...Thanks for any confirmation, Regards, Kiwi-don, New Zealand

With some feed back from Curtis B of "Justanswers" and with some quick research and quick responses, Curtis and I were able to get the wiring correct and safety features in tact. We found that the original wiring of the oil level switch was not connected to where it should have been.... hence the oil level got low and I blew up the engine without a "cut out" taking place. The original wiring diagram colours were different to the wiring chart which came with the mower... someone had done some re wiring..... this was strange as I had the mower for over 15 years now, and I didn't do it!. But all in all talking to Curtis B helped me explain my position and listening to his suggestions was very helpful Thanks..... and my Lifan now? JUST GREAT! more power, I don't need to use full revs to get the same power... Awesome

Could the charged be used to charge a battery or maintain a battery?

Asked by: duckslayer
Yes, the standard charging system will maintain a battery. The optional larger charging system will even charge a dead battery. If you have lights or accessories you should get the larger system.

non existent wiring instructions

My engine came with a fuse instead of a breaker and the wiring is nothing like the picture shown. Four leads from the rectifier and only one unused lead on the engine. Waiting to hear from tech support.
Asked by: Ernie
Here's a diagram of the charging system on a Lifan 15. Hope it helps.

1 in. 15 HP 420cc OHV Electric Start Horizontal Keyway Shaft Engine with 18 Amp Charger is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.

The wiring diagram could be improved by labeling all the components in the system and showing all the actual wiring, along with the same colored wiring in all diagrams. I've used a total of three different diagrams to try and deciper the hook ups, from different sources and all three have different colored wiring listed than what is actually on the engine. Other than that the engine seems to be a good bang for the bucks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Engine Couldnt ask for a better engine. I bought mine for a ling tail mud motor kit. I had it shipped to my local HD incase there were any issues, like shipping damage. The packaging is a joke but otherwise you cant beat this engine. Figuring out the wiring for the 18amp charging was a little difficult, but a quick call to Lifan tech support and they emailed my a wiring diagram as well as talked me through it! Great product and it pushes my boat along rather well. Maybe 15-20 mph in a 14' boat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You will be surpised at the quality and additional features that come OEM from these engines! This was the second engine that I bought from Home Depot in almost a year. Previously I purchased the 13HP and now the 15 HP 420cc(two projects), Both engines have been fantastic, very easy to apply towards my machinery and if the Home Depot ever advertses ALL the features of these engines, they probably will not be able to keep them in stock!! They may be an import but they are top notch quality and I will continue to use these engines for my future projects!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my application. I am restoring an 1973 lawn and garden tractor with plow, disk, and harrow, as I wanted to use the implements for our garden. I couldn't get parts for the old engine,so decided to replace it with a new more powerful one. With a few modifications to the frame, I was able to mount and wire up this engine with little or no problem. The only problem I had was the wiring diagram in the manual was not as clear as some, but with a multimeter was able to track and wire it to work. The engine fired right up and ran smoothly from the start. It has plenty of power to pull the plow and other items. I'm not sure what others could use this engine for, but I'm sure it would work well in many applications.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from long shaft mud motor I built a mud motor for my duck boat and its awesome! The motor has plenty of power to push through the shallow stuff and weeds. I stopped the boat in the mud and started the motor back up and it pushed me right out. it averages 8mph in the mud and i got to 14mph going through a deep canal. I'm not sure how to hook up the battery charger because the instructions don't make sense but the motor runs great and starts up fast with the pull start.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Runs great Here's the good. Ordered this motor for a long tail mud motor and other than shipping damage I couldn't be more satisfied. Set it up and it started on 2nd pull of rope. Idles smooth and runs great. Here's the bad. The way they package these motors is a joke. The boxes and packing material are just no strong enough. You'd think that they would correct the problem and save some time and money. 1st one came with the one corner of the engine base broken off. Returned it to HD. 2nd one came with recoil start housing crushed. Called customer service and they are sending a new recoil assembly. They both had the end of the crankshaft sticking out through the side of the box. Bottom line is if you need a good motor at a fair price these seem to be the best deal out there....if you don't mind dealing with the shipping issues. Here's some more good. The customer service at both HD and the customer support and service from the distributor were excellent. One more note, if you get the electric start with 18v charging system the diagram in the manual is not accurate or complete enough to hook it up. But if you call customer service at the number in the manual and ask for tech assistance they will email you a better diagram. This motor would have got 5 stars if it had not been for shipping issues.
