Question about Garden

1 Answer

Craftsman ys4500 I have a Craftsman ys4500 riding mower with 20hp intek engine and it won't turn over. I have checked the fuel lines as well as checked the carburetor for any debris and to see if float was stuck. I have also changed the spark plug, battery, air filter and changed gas even though it was only in the tank for a month. I have also attempted to spray carb cleaner in the intake to get it to turn over but no luck. The mower ran fine a month ago and has been stored since but now won't start though it tries to crank as if its close to turning over. Any help would be appreciated as I am hitting the wall and am out of ideas as my experience in small engine repair is extremely limited.

SOURCE: Craftsman mower with 20hp B&S Intek won't start/run

That throttle cable issue sounds like it may be the culprit. the cable housing (the outer casing for the wire throttle cable) may not be anchored correctly. Which may be allowing you to move the throttle without any change at the butterfly control on the carb. make sure the cable housing is anchored at both ends.. by the throttle control and at the carb area.. That may be your problem... hope it is that simple...

Craftsman YS4500 20HP mower, was mowing and it just stopped running and since it won't turn over at all, completely dead. I replaced the battery, suspect there may be a blown fuse? Where is the fuse...


under the hood right behind the stearing wheel colum there is a place for fuses and relays, you may have a bad relay or safty switch, check to make sure the seat switch is plugged in all the way that is the most common problem i see with these when they come in for repair
