SOURCE: craftsman 42" riding lawn mower blade free spinning but wont cut

It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: 18hp craftsman riding mower model#917.255913. won't turn left!

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.

Husqvarna riding mower wont start. Makes a high pitched sound when trying to turn over.


The high pitched sound could mean something but normally not depending on age.
Things to check.
1. Make sure it's firing. Check spark plugs.
2. Check oil
3. Try to spin the flywheel by hand. It should be hard to turn. If it spins very easy with no effort STOP! This means the rod is broken and should be taken to a mechanic and most likely the engine will need to be replaced. But if it's hard to spin continue.
This may sound silly but make sure there is fule. And check the oil.
If you did not find any issue with the above issues and all of the safety devices are working properly then you have a carberator issue. You will then need to buy a carberator rebuild kit there not that expensive and remove the carberator clean it with carberator cleaner flush your fule lines and the mower should run. If you do not feel comfortable doing this find a local repair shop.
Briggs and Stratton have diagrams on there website for all of there engines and also there are YouTube videos that can walk you through the rebuild process. It's very simple to do.
Thanks.

Crafstman riding mower cutting off now won't start at all


The two most likely suspects for the symptom you describe are:
a) Ignition coil failure under high heat.
OR
b) Decompression failure due to normal wear.

For a positive diagnosis try the following:

For scenario a)
Run the engine until it shuts itself down. As quickly as possible, check for spark using a spark tester (availabe at local auto parts store). If no spark when hot, allow to cool down and test again. If good spark when cold and no spark when hot, change the ignition coil.
Proper part number (assuming your machine is still all original) Briggs & Stratton part #492341.

For scenario b)
Run the engine until it shuts itself down. Try to restart but pay close attention to the speed of the spinning starter. Next, remove the spark plug and spin the engine over (WITH SPARK PLUG WIRE WELL OUT OF THE WAY!!) If the engine spins super fast and free you can discount the theory of a bad battery and you will need to adjust the valve lash.

Determine which is the case and reply to this post. I will gladly give a detailed explanation of the valve lash adjustment procedure in another post.

Hope this helps!

Wont go and screeches when letting off clutch/brake


Take off the shift plate between you legs, put it in nuetral, crank up the engine, put speed lever in high gear and slowly let off on the clutch. Everything will work as if in gear, it just won't move. you should be able to see what the problem is. Which belt did you replace and why? Watch the varible speed pulley (the one both belts go around). The bearings may be bad in it and not letting it turn, thus, smoking the front belt.
