Craftsman riding lawn mower won t cut grass


Does it die when you attempt to engage the cutting deck? If so the you might have a clogged fuel filter, bad gas, dirty air filter, bad spark plug.
Or the mower engage switch may be faulty. They are located in different places on different mowers. But should be attached somewhere along the main pivot of the engage lever. Let me know if you need more assistance. Good Luck!!

Cranks up and runs fine ,then starts cutting out then runs fine and starts cutting out again


I am no pro but my suggestion to you is if you have changed your spark plug recently check the gap on it and make sure it is right and make sure is the right spark plug for it. Also check the oil if it is low the motor as it gets hot will start to sputter or if it has to much oil it will have an air lock and blow you Lhead gasket after a while. Another thing to check is the air filter to make sure it is clean and check the timing with this if you don't trust your self ask an repair expert for your brand of mower.

Turns over not starting changed points


Verify the point gap is set right and that you are getting a good spark. Check to see if you are getting fuel to the carb.

Mower runs for about 20 minutes cuts off. Acks


Make sure that the gas cap is allowing air to enter through the small hole. If not, a vacuum will build up and the engine can't get gas. You could try running it with the gas cap on loosely. If that doesn't fix it, the next time it stalls quickly remove the spark plug and see if it is wet. If it is, you will know it's an electrical problem.
