Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Craftsman Lawn tractor, 17.5 HP, 42" mower, model#: 917.273180. The problem I'm having is that the 20A fuse will blow after about a half an hour cutting the lawn. I've replaced the solenoid and the rectifier-regulator but problem still happening. I've noticed just before the fuse blows the Ammeter's needle goes almost all the way to the right. Also, the battery was replaced. Your help with ths problem is GREATLY appreciated!!! Thanks...... Paul

This sounds like the Alternator's stator is shorting out when it gets hot, this is fairly common and happens due to vibration and heat. This is very hard to test because by the time you get the stator out to Ohm test it the short has gone away because it has cooled down. I would just replace it.

FUSE BLOWS WHEN BLADES ARE ENGAGED CRAFTSMAN MODEL # 917.27686


Most probably you have a wire shorting to the frame of your mower.

Trace (follow) the wires from the switch, checking for any frayed, burned, or bare wires.

Repair as needed.
