Sounds like you have a short on your ground wire...if you disconnect the black lead off your coil and then check for spark you may find you have one now. if so trace that black wire back looking for a bare spot where its rubbing metal. or it could be a safety switch gone bad. but pull wire to see if spark returns.

SOURCE: Sears Craftsman riding mower V belt getting chewed

I believe you may have the belt over one or more of the belt retainers next to the pulleys. They are 5 or 6 inches long and about a 1/4 inch in diameter. You have to loosen them when you put the belt on then adjust them to where they are just barely touching the back of the belt. They keep the belt from jumping off.

get a spark tester and plug it into one of the plugs after it gets up to operating temperature. test the other one if you have good spark plugs and no spark going through the tester the coil may be breaking down. and needs to be replaced.

I have a craftsman riding mower model 247.288810. While cutting my lawn the engine all stalled and would not start anymore. I changed the spark plug and the battery is new, what could it be?


there are 3 safety switches,clutch,deck and seat, Craftsman 247288810 Lawn Tractor Parts
take the cover off so u can access the coil,unhook the black wire from the coil,not spark plug cable,try to start it,if it starts then a safety switch is bad,if it doesnt,then jump the solenoid,if it starts then it is the seat or clutch switch,if you want to bypass safety switches,connect a switch to the ground and coil

On my Craftsman Riding Lawn Mower the engine stalls after say about 10 minutes - I leave it for say 5 or 10 mins and I can start it again. I changed the sparkplug and it's not bad gas as my other mower...


The problem is more than likely the coil. The coil is nothing more than a coil of copper wire. When the coil gets hot the wire expands causing the coil to open or lose connection. When it loses connection then the spark plug quits firing.
PLEASE RATE! Click on the 4 thumbs ups!
Thanks! Have a GREAT DAY!
