Question about Dryers
My craftsman 1000 lawn tractor started running poorly then I started having problems starting it. I replaced the battery and it worked for a little while then it stopped working again. I replaced the switch and it started working a little while and stopped again. I purchased a starter and replaced the old and it still didn't start in fact it didn't do anything, I noticed a burnt fuse, replaced that and it attempted to start but didn't, then eventually it was back to not doing anything when I attempt to start it? I appreciate your help...
Let's try this. It sounds like you can get it to crank but it won't start. There is probably a fuel shutoff solenoid which is open only when someone is sitting in the seat. There is a switch under the seat so if the rider falls off the mower, the gas to the engine is shut off and the mower stops.
You can depress this switch by hand, or with tape, or whatever so you can start the engine without sitting in the seat.
Also, it sounds like you are clamping a jumper cable to the battery post and that allows the engine to crank. If I understand this correctly, it sounds lilke the connector on the battery post for the mower battery cable is loose, and when you clamp it, the battery cable connector is tightened and makes a good connection.
Sounds like two issues: fuel solenoid switch not closed when you're trying to start it; and a loose battery cable connector on the + battery post.
I think we're making progress -- let's keep working it.
