    i hear a click when i turn the key to start. even with a fully charged battery and a boost, I was able to move pulley by hand to make sure engine was not frozen, how do i check to see if its the starter or the solenoid? thank you

    I have a similar problem. When I turn the key to start my Craftsman YS4500, I get a few different results.



    1. Sometimes it seems like it tries to turn over but quickly dies

    2. Sometimes I hear a click when I turn the key to start

    3. Sometimes I hear nothing



    Can I jump the battery? If so, how?

    Check the starter itself. does it sound like anything is happening when you turn the key?

Sorry for not answering sooner but turns out it was the starter solenoid.

Craftsman lawn tractor, LT2000, 18 HP OHV INTEK, 917.273752 I have a similar stalling problem as the one I reviewed in your forum, 10-15 minute run time, then stalls. Only difference, no cool down...


hi there

here is web site for manual and parts diagram

http://www.hammerwall.com/Download_Manual/12377/

have the valves been adjusted correctly ? or could have a tight valve clearance
and when gets warm holds valve open - looses power

your engine will be 31p777 intek ohv avs

run the piston to tdc on compression stroke , then turn piston past tdc & set piston is 1/4 inch down the bore on power stroke this eliminates decomprssor lift from the setting

intake should be 0.003 Thou
and exhaust 0.005t thou

then check the carburettor main jets and emulsion tube and pilot jets and air bleeds and progression ports for obstruction etc for restriction / blockage

check fuel flow from tank to carb , check that the fuel solenoid has got continual 12 volt supply
when switched on and does not go o/c cutting fuel supply to main jet

have a look let me know

cheers hope it helps

Could be, but test each item with your tester. Test key switch (12V in and 12 V out when turned to start., operator present switch 12V in 12V out (seat) Clutch switch, etc. till finally you test for 12V on the small terminal on the starter solonoid. Happy testing!

I have got a Craftsman model 917.270821 19.5 electric start 42" mower and cant get it to start I have replaced the starter and had the battery checked and all is good there, but dont seem to be gettin


check the wires from the back of the ignition and also the small wire that connects to the starter, if you get a 12v test light check each wire individually by holding the test light on the wire and have somebody turn the key, the test light should come on if the power is going through the wire.
If there is no power the ignition may need replacing
