SOURCE: motor stops when the pto or cutting blades are turned on or engaged.

you most likely have a bad safety switch. there is one under your seat,one on engagement lever for blades,and probably one or two more in other places.start with the one under your seat by unplugging it and then going ahead with normale start up and implement engagement. you will have found the bad switch when everything works as it should.replace switch if you feel its necessary or just leave unplugged. it will not affect performance or longevity of the tractor

SOURCE: prob with PTO on craftsman mower 917.273372

There is a idler pivot plate on the mower that must be cleaned and lubricated regularly, from the left side of the mower deck if you look in the middle of the mower deck while someone engages the mower(with the engine off) you will see the pulley try and move,there is a 3/8 bolt that comes up through a bushing that this pivots on, soak that area with wd-40 and see if that improves the movement. Be sure not to get any wd-40 on the belt or pulleys. Always try and keep that area clean and lubed.

Sounds like the shear bolt is broken, Do you have and owners manual to show you the location of shear bolt? They are easily replaced.

SOURCE: need a blade engagement cable diagram for a 2002 craftsman lt1000

as far as i know, there is no diagram available for the cable replacement. it is covered briefly in the owner's manual, but the best way to do it is to study carefully how the old one is routed, and replace a step at a time

Hi,
The problem is probably in the button that you pull and push to engaged and disengage the PTO... If you wiggle the button or try to pull it slowly, you may find a spot where it will work. But the button has gone bad and will need to be replaced.
If you are comfortable with wiring, you could jumper the wires and getting it working, but it would be a very temporary and possibly dangerous fix...

When i turn the key on the mower the engine turns but does not want to start


if theres a safety mech's on them make sure blades and pto are disengaged, also sometimes you have to depress clutch or have the parking brake set, just like if you are mowing and decide to stop and put it in nuetral if the blades are lowered and pto engaged when you leave the seat the motor will cut off. if that isn't it make sure your spark plug is pushed all the way on.

There is no way to guess at the problem, you'll have to use a meter and check the safety switches. Most likely there is a problem in the switch for the PTO, find the wire connector that attaches to the switch on the PTO and disconnect it.

If the unit works, then replace that switch
