    That YS4500 printed on the side of the hood is not really the model number. Look under the seat and post the model number there. It should start with 917

Bought a ys4500 24hp craftsman mower off Craig's list! It runs great but it blows light smoke blue in color and not have good cutting power! I have drive slow to cut decent! What could be the problem?

- Make sure the blades are sharp
- Make sure the drive belts are in good condition and under tension when in cutting position
- Make sure that straight gas is in the fuel tank (NOT MIXED)

Other problem could be bad piston rings. PITA to fix. If it runs good and cuts ok after the above checks, I'd run it and live with a bit of smoke.

How do I check the transmission fliud on craftsman ys4500 mower model number 917.276642

Unless you see leakage from the transmission seals there is normally no need to check the fluid level. It more likely a worn drive belt and v-belt idler and I would recommend you check these first as checking the fluid level in transmission will probably require pulling the transmission.

This idler was made of plastic and wears heavily. Once it wears down to where the drive belt bottoms out it creates belt slippage.

Your drive belt is 1/2 x 84-3/4 PN 532140218 and V-idler PN 532194326

I have a Craftsman YS4500 that when I engage the blades the start spinning slowly and kills the engine.

Assuming any belt changes were correct..check the path of the belt to make sure it's not pinched in the guides..and with the blades disengaged and the engine off..that one of your blade hubs isn't seized up.its normal to slow the engine during engagement but not stall at medium rpm.

2003 craftsman ys4500 model number917 276680 died

Mine did same thing, need to manually adjust choke. If you raise hood and adjust your throttle you will see that when you press up to choke that it actually hits & pushed in choke. But when you back off if it is like mine the choke doesn't come off, so I manually pulled choke to off & mine started right up. I am still trying to find how or where cable came off for the choke to be adjusted by throttle lever. That is why I was on here looking for photo of engine.

The belt does not stay on my craftsman ys4500 lawn tractor with a 54" deck

Although the belt may still look good, it is most likely stretched. The cure is to replace the belt.
