Sounds like your coil is bad. Fortunately they are fairly cheap and fairly easy to install. I would replace the coil.

SOURCE: My zts 7500 turns over

This is usually caused by the wire coming off of the coil (smaller one not connected to the spark plug) getting shorted to ground. This wire goes to the ignition switch and when the switch is off, the wire gets grounded. If it gets grounded while running, the coil will not spark. Make sure the wire is not rubbing against any sharp metal edges and disconnect from the ignition switch. If you still don't get spark, then good chance that the coil itself is bad. Before you replace the coil, try another spark plug first, just in case.

SOURCE: I have a 7500 zts 50

I would suggest taking an old blade to a home hardware store or a Sears store to match up.

SOURCE: My craftsman zts 7500 will not start.

The problem may be one of the safety switches. Make sure the blades are not engaged. The clutch pedal needs to be pushed all the way down, and there is another one that needs weight on the seat. Look around those areas for disconnected wires. Some even need to be in neutral. Lots of safety features.

The first thing to check is the fuse,it should be located underneath the battery.

How o you change the lift assembly on a craftsman ZTS 7500 mower ?


Should be relatively simple. There are 4-5 cotter pins that connect the mowing deck to the bottom of the mower. Pull the pins, push the metal rods out, and remove the deck!

Gp 800 will crank but wont start


Hi, most likely the trigger coils near the flywheel, it will still have spark but the timing may be off. Try new plugs first as they may have spark outside the cylinders but not when under compression. Regards Phil

DID YOU HAVE SPARK IN THE SPARK PLUG WIRES WHAT YOU CAN DO IS TAKE OFF ONE OF THE WIRES FROM THE SPARK PLUG AND PUT A FLAT SCREW DRIVER INSIDE THE WIRE AND PUT IT CLOSE TO THE METAL SO THE WIRE GETS GROUND AND HAVE SOME ONE TO CRANK THE ENGINE AND YOU GOING TO SEE THE SPARK IF YOU DONT SEE SPARK SO THAT IS YOU POBLEM
