LM300 not starting

Recommended Posts

We recently purchased a Land Master 300. The sellers did not have a manual. or even a title. It was advertised as a 2015 model. The ad was put up by one of the two owners. When we received the "Bill of sale" they provided, the other owner in filling it out, entered that it is a 2014. The only manual I have found online is a generic one for all of American Sportsworks UTVs. The lights will come on, using the key ignition the engine doesn't turn over.  There is no noise or indication that the motor is engaging. It will crank if you pull start it (with the choke on). Using the manual I downloaded online, I cannot find the spark plug, or the oil dip stick. Since it appears there is no "spark" when I turn it on, I conclude it must be the starter or the spark plug. Could the battery be down and the lights work, but it won't start? Does anyone have a manual for this LM300 with an accurate engine diagram? Is there any way to get a good manual or know for sure what year model we have? Can we get a new title in my name? Thanks for your help!

If it runs it is not the spark plug.    Sounds like a starter wire is loose or broke.

Check all the wiring and fuses. Trace the wires from the ignition (key switch) to the starter.  Be sure all the cables and wires are clean and tight.

Do a battery test.

Which engine does it have?  If you don't know engine brand post pictures of the engine. My 2010 Sportworks has the Subaru/Robins engine.

Let me know if I can help.

 Same buggy just a picture the day I got it. The man I got it from used it in his pecan orchard.  By the way, we used it yesterday where we hunt on my Granddaddy's farm and it did great. Hauled everything we needed and ran great in 98 degree weather. True enough that it rides stiff but hauled everything without a hitch. I'm sure if we were more inclined to race or pleasure ride I would look for something else but I'm thinking it will work out good for a hunting, hauling and work buggy. I also have a 1988 Dodge Dakota we use down there but the buggy works out a heap better. Just no a.c. on the buggy.

      I have owned my 2015 Hisun HS700 Crew  for about 3 or 4 months now. I got it used and was supposed to run good but was not put all the back together from a stator upgrade due to previous owner said he was going to out a stereo system on it. Anyway I have worked it much more than I have rode it. I seem to work on it 2 days and ride it for a hour. Me, my wife, and 2 kids (10 and 18) enjoy it but the engine compartment gets so hot. I've replaced the water pump and burped the cooling system and any other thing I could think of to bleed the air out and think its good with no air and water circulating. Fan seems to run fine and be on about all the time. Changed the coolant twice and oil 3 times. I noticed the engine really has nowhere for heat to go because heat rises and no air flow at all. Has anyone had any experience in this area? Any DIY tricks or any advice in removing the heat out of the engine compartment and getting it to a tolerable temperature. Im about to sell it if I can't figure something out and go waste money on a big name brand but I won't have red legs and arm from engine heat burning me and my wife. They machine never acts like its to hot or anything but it feels like it is. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

      Hello everyone.
      Here I am showing our Green Scout electric all-terrain vehicle.
      All-terrain vehicle 6 wheeled, electric, side-turning. Rides, jumps, dances, swims, but does not fly. The drive is permanent (but you can turn off any wheel arbitrarily through the controller). The power of each wheel is 3 kW at its peak, the total power is 18 kW. Speed up to 60 km / h. Since the all-terrain vehicle is electric, it starts from a place quickly, drives silently (well, of course, the sound from tires and shock absorbers does not disappear).
      The idea of creating such an all-terrain vehicle came after the experience of operating the Argo all-terrain vehicle. The main disadvantages of the wheeled side-turning all-terrain vehicle are low ground clearance, lack of suspension. To get high ground clearance and suspension, there are two outputs on mini all-terrain vehicles - either electric drive or hydraulic. The hydraulics had to be excluded, since at temperatures below -30C it does not work, plus it always flows. As a result, we settled on an electric transmission. Each wheel is a motor-wheel. Naturally, the motor-wheels were being finalized to be able to be installed on an all-terrain vehicle and to be able to swim. The battery is iron-phosphate, all information on the battery, the charge is displayed on the smartphone. Control of the all-terrain vehicle through the on-board computer. Bicycle handlebar controls. Braking either with the sides through a turn of the steering wheel, or with the gas pedal of all wheels at once.

      This is my first UTV and it ran great the first 500 miles. Then it slowly got harder and harder to start. Now I have to keep giving it gas when I first start it for about 1 minute until it will idle by itself. This past weekend I took it on the trail and it died 15 minutes into the ride and lost all spark. I got towed home and tried to see if I had spark the next morning which I did and it started but died 10 minutes later. Anyone have any ideas what I should do or check? Anything would help thank you!

      I have a 2015 strike 1000 and it was very hard to start when I first got it. After pulling the fuel pump and cleaning everything it starts up and idles but just seems to not have any power won’t run over 20mph
