SOURCE: Craftsman Won't Start

i think i'd look for a new repairman - did you check the oil? maybe he didn't put any oil back in it! or maybe the carb float stuck and the crankcase is full of gas. lift the hood and look for burnt wires or at the deck for a burnt belt - try to turn the engine over by hand [the round center with the perforations]. does it click when you try the key? if, not, check the fuse. without knowing the area that the smoke came from it's hard to single out a cause

SOURCE: Oil leak on riding Craftsman LT2000 (Kohler)

Fortunately, the engine oil doesn't go through any rubber hoses, so they are mouse-proof. The oil probably leaked out through an engine seal. Oil on the engine surfaces would smoke when it gets hot. Check your oil level and top it up if necessary, before you run the engine again. The engine can run fine even with a slow oil leak; you just have to watch the oil level from time to time. The leak could be easy to fix - by tightening up a few bolts -- or expensive.
The gas runs through rubber hoses, though. If mice ate through that, I think you would have smelled the gasoline, and the engine wouldn't run for more than a few seconds. But if you see a severed hose, you should replace it. Take it off and bring it to a mower shop or auto supply shop, and buy something the same diameter. Inexpensive.
Hope this helped! If so, please rate my answer, thanks!

I have a Sears Craftsman mower with Tecumseh, major oil leak


On many Tecumseh engines, there is a crankcase breather located under the flywheel. It has a cork gasket to seal the top plate of the breather. Either the rubber breather housing is cracked, or the cork gasket needs replaced.

Check to see if any oil leaks between rear wheels where the tractor was parked. Also make sure hydrostatic disengage lever, at rear of tractor by hitch, has to be pushed in.
