Lawn tractor problems

When i turn the ignition switch to start it it blows the 20 amp fuse under the cowling. I have put in a new battry and starter and selinoid. It will either blow the fuse right away or will barely try to crank very slow . Could it be the ignition switch itself. THe cables are not loose or corrughted. Thanks tim

SOURCE: Loss of drive in a Craftsman Lawn tractor

I also have a Craftsman tractor with the same problem. Sears repairman said it needed a new transmission and it would cost $1,400 to install. A new one is about $1,000. Anyway, if you remove the battery and the battery tray under the seat it will expose the transmission fill hole (hex). I opened the top and it looked empty. I had a bottle of 90 weight gear oil in my shop and filled the transmission to the top. I have not had any problems with it since. $4.00 bottle of oil verses a new tractor is worth a try.

The item you are referring to is called a snap ring. You can purchase a small collection of snap rings from you local hardware store or automotive dealer. These snap rings can be viewed at the bottom of this filehttp://www.rotorclip.com/cat_pdfs/de.pdf or ordered from http://www.rotorclip.com/.
These links should get you the information you need to go to the local hardware store and get your parts.

I would start by splitting the systems. remove the ground wire that goes to the spark plug coil kill wire.
If the engine runs with the blades on then, the problem is in the chasis or safety switches. if you still have the problem it is the engine. Maybe the engine can not produce enough power to spin the blades.
This could be because of the common deck spindle bearing lock up or the engine being worn out.

After you do the test if you need parts contact a shop like www.arcolawn.com and they can ship you the parts.

Cheers

Tractor will not start and only gives an initial click when key is turned


Check to see if juice is reaching the starter motor terminals and that it is grounded. If ground is ok and no juice then you will have to back trace all of the components in that circuit . Also check to make sure that all of the safety switches are in closed position when you go to start and run tractor.

Toro/Wheelhorse Tractor wont start


AS YOU HAVE CHANGED ALL OF THESE COMPONENTS TO NO AVAIL IT HAS TO BE A BREAK IN THE WIREING ITSELF, YOU WILL HAVE TO FOLLOW THE WIREING WITH A MULTI METER TO FIND WHERE THE POWER IS LOST.

I have a 2004 dodge stratus that has power to lights but does not turn over when i try to crank even after jumping it off.


Hi.

Check ignition switch fuse. This is a 20 Amps. see that it has not blown. In 2004 Fuse should be nr 8 in the power box under the hood (newer models #24).

Once you are sure that battery, fuse and wires are OK, check starter and ignition switch. Check if there is 12V to starter while cranking. If there is power and the starter motor does not turn, then the motor is gone.
If there is no power to starter motor when you crank, then the ignition switch located inside the steering column may need replacement. Before repairing, try reading error codes with a code scanner.

Craftsman garden tractor Mod # 917.257740 blows main fuse.


Try checking the battery - make sure it is not under rated - over rated and be sure the starter it's self isn't drawing too much amperage.
the battery may need replacing and for a temp fix - put in a larger fuse - say 50 amp.
Thanks for choosing FIX Ya

Just stopped, put in gas, turn key...NOTHING


If it has a Briggs and Stratton motor open the hood and look all along the wire harnesses. There might be an automotive type plug in 20 amp fuse that has blown. If it did blow there is a reason. First look for a dead short somewhere. Mine was a loose wiring terminal at the headlight. Replace fuse and try to start.

Starting problems with my cub cadet 2166 lawn mower? Battery is good, not turning over, sometimes it clicks? I can jump start but it is a pain. I have taken this to a dealer last year for this problem....


If it works when jump started, then I would suspect a bad battery or lose or corroded connection. check wires from battery to starter relay also known as solenoid to starter,if it is making a click,the ignition is most likely ok . safety start switch is ok ,I still suspect Battery..can you have it load tested or try a known good one?PS if above test OK, then starter or starter solenoid /relay.Hope this helped you fix it. please let us know if this helped.thank you.

My riding mower blows fuses once you turn the key.


Sounds like you are on the right path, maybe some wires on the ignition were replaced backward, and you are sending +12v directly to ground? Does it blow right away?
