Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
There was a problem with the engine stopping when the forward pedal (or reverse) was pushed. Checked the safety switch that controls that -switch checked OK. plugged it back in and it would start and run OK, but engine would stop when the blade was lowered - checked the switch that controls that - checked OK. Plugged it back in and engine started, mower drive worked and mower deck worked. Great! but brought the mower back in to install a cover and currently it will not start. 15 amp fuse looks good. Checked the other switch (seat) and it checks OK too. What now?
I took a wire and jumpered all of the switches until I found the one that would let the mower start. The switch was still good, but vibration or whatever had moved the plug just enough to lose contact. Plugged it on more firmlly - problelm solved. Thanks.
