Sears lawn tractor

Tractor Stalls after about 5-10 min. of run time. Replaced fuel filter, fuel lines and Spark Plug. Still stalls. Noticed that the fuel filter is empty when it stalls. I cleaned the bowl (was not dirty or gummy) and can see the wire is connected to the back fire solenoid. Engine runs fine when it is running. 10 years old.

    Also make sure fuel line is routed so it is not bent or kinked as to block fuel flow off

SOURCE: Engine starts, but stalls when clutch is released.

The is a safety switch located underneath the mower, in the dashboard area. This switch will not pass voltage to the ignition system unless the pedal is depressed, or the deck is not all the way up. However, your culprit is most likely the pto (power take off) switch on the dash that engages the blades. It will not allow the mower to start, if pulled, and if faulty will shut off ignition power when you release the pedal. First. You'll need a volunteer to sit on the mower and operate the controls.  Now put the deck down and with the pedal depressed start the engine. Nothing should happen, if it does replace the deck switch Sears part number #176138 mentioned above. Now raise the deck and release the pedal. Again, nothing should happen. Same solution if it does. If nothing happens on both tests the switch is ok. NOW. Behind the dash, find the pto switch, and squeeze the sides, depressing two clips that hold it in the dash. You should now be able to slide it though the dash, wiring attached. Unplug the switch. With pedal depressed, deck up, someone sitting on the seat, start the mower. Now release the pedal (making sure to block the wheels and have the transmission handle is in the neutral position. If the engine continues to run, you found the problem. Replace the PTO switch. Sears part number # 174651. Also, check the plug to the pto, ignition and deck switches for corrosion as this is a common problem, though not likely to cause yours, it could. Good luck, and please let us know the outcome, good or bad. Thanks so much.

SOURCE: YS 4500 Stalls out after running for 20 mins

I do believe they change plug(s) and air filter? There could be impurities and water in tank. Check for any loose electrical connections. Problem with valve clearance. Keep me informed.

My lawn tractor craftsman 14.5hp IC OHV B&S stalls approx. 5 mins after starting so I restart and it can stall in another 10-15 min again and so on.


you may have some debris in your gas tank blocking the pickup tube. It will float away when the mower dies, then block the tube after it runs again.

Stalls after 20 mins. of running fine. (Starving for gas)


From the rear of machine look at the top left of fuel tank for the fuel line.Where line comes out of tank see if it is pinched where it goes down between frame and tank,grab line and see if it moves freely.If that is OK loosen fuel cap after 10 minutes of run time to see if your vent hole in cap is working.These are 2 common problems for the L series mowers.

Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor


This sounds too easy of a solution but I had a like ptroblem with my Craftsman. I loosed the gas cap a bit and the rough running and stalling stopped. he vent on the gas cap that contains a turn over interrupt valve was plugged causing the gas not to flow. I took the cap apart and cleaned out the vent hole though cleaning the holewith a paper clip would have worked as well. Anyway..it fixed my problem. I think my dirty hands of deris deposited the matera in the vent hole when filling with gas.
