Ariens light bulb help

Hello I recently purchased a used Aries 11528 and upon my first use inspection I noticed the light was dim so I replaced it and it's still dim, the filament just gets red, the bulb doesn't emit light lol, any suggestions? It is a standard automotive type mini bulb, thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

You could check the connections from the engine, to the light, and from the light, to however it's grounded. Wherever the other connection from the light goes; it might attach to the frame, or to the engine block, for instance.



You want nice clean electrical connections. Rust could add enough resistance that the bulb might not get the full power from the alternator.


If you have a multimeter, you could check the voltage at the light, with the bulb installed (so under a load), and with the bulb removed (no load on the alternator). It's probably AC voltage, rather than DC.

Are you sure you have the correct bulb? Just because you found one type in it does not mean it was the correct one - verify in the manual!
