Michael it sounds like there may be a blokage on you air filter. Check it and clean it then make sure there is not too much oil in the mower.

Testimonial: "i cleaned the air filter and drained the oil to the correct level it started but the engine speed surged up and down for about a minute then it died wont start back up"

    The spark plug will also need cleaning due to the oil level being wrong

Ok i have a problem with lt 1000 craftsman lawnmower. the tractor starts up runs great just when you put in gear or try to put blades in motion it shuts down can someone plz help


check for a safety switch near your shift handle for the gears . most have a kill switch for when your mowing and go to drive in reverse with the blades on . when you go to do this it puts the shift handle against a metal switch that closes a normally open circut that ends up grounding the coil to kill the engine .. easiest thing to try and dont cost to try . is to unplug this ( temporary ) my mtds have 2 wires not sure if craftsman has these or not . but if so just unplug it and it should work and run like normal if this is what the issue is .

Surging is usually caused by a lean condition You can try to turn the mixture screw ccw about 1/4 to 1/2 turn. If this does not solve the problem your carb will have to be removed, cleaned thoroughly, and reinstalled.

Craftsamen 18.5 hp battery keeps draining


Either the battery is not being recharged when the engine is running or there is a current drain when stopped. If you are not knowledgeable about electrical tests you can check for current drain by disconnecting the battery negative cable when not running. If the battery stays charged then you need to find the current drain. To check for no charge when running, turn on the headlights with the key on but engine stopped. Start the engine and see if they become somewhat brighter. If brighter, the charging system works. If not, there is a problem in the charging system which needs to be confirmed with a voltmeter.

Crafsman Eager 1 6.75 HP lawnmower wont start


I have an Eager 1, as well and when I try to pull the cord it does not turn at all. It's stuck. I hit a tree root and since then I have had problems with it. I have 2 mowers so it was not used last year at all. Gas was drained and it was stored in a shed. Anyway, I know nothng about mowers other than spark plugs, gas, oil, sharp blades and filters. Is the motor seized? Thanks
