Question about Craftsman Garden
Tractor wont move and when I try to put in gear the mower stalls out
If the engine stalls as you pull away there are two possibilites, either a micro switch is defective ( probably the seat switch, or a poor connection on the block connecter ) or the brake on the side of the gearbox is stuck on ( this is a disc on the side of the gearbox and should be sdjustable )

First, check the tension of the drive belt. There should be an idler pulley which is spring loaded that creates the tension. When you push the clutch in, it will release the tension. Also, check to see if the rear wheel hubs have set screws which lock them onto the axle Make sure they are tight.

I have had this problem for the longest time. I replaced the secondary gear twice. Helped for a brief period and now won't turn left again. Replaced the steering shaft and worked for a brief period. Back to no left turns once again. The issue is with the secondary gear and bearings (plastic) which is only a temporary fix. What I had done was welded a piece of steel to the bottom of the steering shaft eliminating the secondary gear connecting directly to the tie rod for the steering. Works perfect now.

The solenoid does two things -- it closes an electrical contact to run the starter motor, and also pulls a lever to slide the motor gear up to engage the flywheel. Since the contact is closing, the solenoid itself must be OK, but the lever could be broken, or the sliding gear could be binding or stripped. Since you're looking at a probable replacement, try cleaning with compressed air, then squirting some WD-40 into the starter gear area - you could get lucky! Otherwise, you can replace the starter/solenoid assembly -- you can find replacements on eBay for about $80. Less expensive but more time consuming is to remove the assembly, disassemble, and replace just the defective parts if you can find them. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.
