If you haven't done so check drive belt to make sure it is fully engaging when you put it in gear. You can also check to make sure that your break is fully releasing.Grasp pedal with your hand and pull it back to make sure it is returning. Thank you.

SOURCE: where is the spark plug located on my craftsman lawn tractor model 917.273360

James, it is at the front of the engine. It is next to the 4" by6" metal cover that says OHV. It is on the right hand side ( sitting on the tractor), There is a black wire the size of a pencil ( diameter ), hooked to it. It is set deep in the engines cylinder head. There is a rubber boot over the end of the spark plug. Remove the rubber boot, you will hace to grip it hard and pull it off. Then you will be able to remove it, using a deep 5/8" socket with a 4 to 6 inch extension.

Hope this helps, if you need more let me know.
Matt

how old is the mower? Usually one in the seat & under the engine cover where you depress the clutch/brake pedal. Good place to start. Hope it helps.

My lawn mower will start easily and continue running as long as the clutch brake is depressed but when I lift the clutch or try to engage the blades while the clutch is depressed the mower will stall.


This is a shot in the dark. I think you have a failed "operator presence safety switch". Rule this out by finding the switch and jumping it.

Your mower should run with no one in the seat IF THE PARKING BRAKE IS SET.

If the brake is released and no one is on it, it should shut off.

If you are on it and the brake is released you should be able to engage the blades (probably an electric clutch)

Purpose of this interlock is the shut the machine OFF should you fall off or jump off the machine. Do not disable this valuable safety feature.

Let me know what you find.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY NOTHING HAPPENS


Hi Tim,

When you turn the key,
  • is the brake pedal fully depressed?
  • Is your full weight on the seat?
  • Are the blades disengaged?
  • Are you sure the battery is charged
Try these out..

Best regards

Mike

Idles fine, shuts down when release brake.


It could be the brake switch bad, if this model came with one. When it is depressed it will start, but when it is released it may not be switching to stay running.
