Steps

  1. Make sure you have enough motor oil in your mower. Usually there is a cap on top of the mower body, smaller than the gas cap, that says "oil" or something similar. The cap will probably have an oil gauge attached, so check the oil as you would in a car, that is, judge the level of oil on the gauge against the depth of the reservoir (the length of the gauge).
  2. Make sure you have enough gasoline. There should be a clearly labeled cap on the gas tank. If you open it, you should be able to look down into the tank and see the approximate level. Add more (preferably using a funnel) if needed.
  3. Locate the prime button, usually red or black, a squishy button somewhere on the mower's body. Push it between 3 and 8 times in order to force the gasoline into the lines.
  4. You may need to pull and hold a starting lever (a safety feature), or the lawnmower will not start no matter what you do.
  5. Brace your arm holding the starting lever, and pull upward on the pull cord, which you should find on top of the mower body. You may have to do this several times before the motor starts up.
  6. If you are still unable to get your mower started, try the lawnmower inspection and troubleshooting steps at http://www.wikihow.com/Repair-a-Lawnmower.

Grease fittings for spindles


Some cheaper mowers don't have grease zirks for the spindle bearings. If you cleaned off the deck and you can't see them, the only thing to do is remove some shields and keep looking, or check with manufacturer details to see if it even has them. A simple call to a craftsman repair shop should be able to answer that question.

I have a Craftsman, 6.75hp, SP, model #917.377580 lawn mower. Was running good but, won't start any more. Don't know if or where the fuel filter would be. Thinking it might be the solid state...


If you know that you have a good plug, and you don't have spark at the plug, then it is a bad Ignition Coil (Module). If you need further help, let me know.

Good Luck!

My mower lacks speed in forward. It works fine in reverse. Does it need hydraulic fluid? If so, how do I add it?


Good question ... what kind is it ... should I guess? Some take 30 weight non detergent oil ... others take transmission fluid type F or GM or other "flavor" (specialty oil). Some fill under the seat others fill else where. Are you sure it is hydraulic? Have you looked for the fill tube? Do you have the instruction/owners manual anywhere? I would like to help you and maybe I have, inadvertently. Please don't put anything in until (1) you know what kind of fluid is suppose to be put in (2) you know it is low and requires additional fluid (3) don't operate it until you get the answers to (1) and (2). Is there a dealer for your unnamed make and model in your town? Have you called them? Maybe you should give them a call ...

If you have additional information to offer which will help me to help you solve your trouble, please post it. Thank you.

DO NOT KNOW HOW TO REPLACE THE BELT TO THE DECK MOWER


Me to ... you want help but you don't give any description of the mower! There must be a way to remove it ... think about this ... someone put it on! so it has to come off! You may have to disconnect part of the deck, I don't know ... You may have to cut the old one off and pry the new one on (on cheaper models) I don't know, you will not tell me what we are working on. It SHOULD be reasonably easy - some company made them by mass production - they wouldn't make it hard for them to assemble (unless it is a really cheap one).

I suggest you get on the ground and study the deck ... look for levers or tension pulleys. Make sure the mower is OFF, OF COURSE. ALSO, disconnect the SPARK plug as turning the belt COULD START THE MOTOR!!!!!!! I don't know what this machine is so I am stressing the safety aspect of what you are about to do!!!!!!!!!

If you will post additional information on this machine, I may be able to offer more suggestions.

Thank you for using FixYa.com
