Question about Craftsman 24 Hp 48" Deck Yard Tractor
When I engage the mower deck, it will run for a few seconds (10-60)and then the engine starts to die. Immediately disengage the deck, and the engine runs up again, sometimes with a single backfire. Occasionally just the mower deck stops spinning, and THEN in a few seconds the engine will start to die.....thanks
This is a Sears Craftsman 22hp v-twin kohler with 46in deck
The product box below won't accept this description, so I chose the closest one it would take...sorry.
Yes, you have a carburetor problem. You need to disassemble the carburetor and give it a good cleaning. Make sure to clean the small portals as well with a Den Tek Brush, (Tip:used for cleaning between teeth), they work great for this job. Check gasket(s). After cleaning, reassemble and start.This should solve your problem.

Replace the ignition switch and clutch and all will be well. if you want to check out and confirm before replacing rthe ignition switch.just remove the switch.the mower deck will still work without ignition switch enough to start and run the tractor - but will just have no power from the ignition switch to the PTO switch.but when you replace the ignition switch and clutch it will work properly.

------------- >>The Following is a Basic Instruction File I made for this. Any Input is Appreciated. I Usually Suggest you Check the Following in this Order for a Problem like yours. **CHANGE ANY SPRING STYLE HOSE CLAMPS TO THE SCREW STYLE HOSE CLAMPS*** 1- Check the Gas Tank Cap and Ensure it is Venting the Tank. A Vacuum Builds in the Tank and the Gas Flow Stops or Slows (15 to 45 Minutes and if the Small Grainular Sand is in the Tank it can Take Several Days of Constant Running to Bring All the Sand Particales to the Tank Outlet Port) to a Point it Shuts Off the Engine. 2- Operate the Equipment Until it Quits (15min to 1hr). Then Immediately Check for Fire from the Plug. If the Plug is Firing, then 3- Check the Carburetor Solenoid. If the Carburetor Shut Off Solenoid has Current, then Remove the Carburetor Solenoid and Go to the Hardware Store. Purchase a Bolt of the Same Diameter and Threads. It Needs to be 3/4" Long. Put this Bolt in Place of the Solenoid. If this Corrects the Engine Problem, then Replace the Solenoid. ***NOTE: THIS IS FOR CHECKING THE SOLENOID ONLY I NEVER SUGGEST YOU OPERATE THE ENGINE WITH THE SOLENOID OUT OF THE CARBURETOR EXCEPT FOR TESTING PURPOSES*** Sometimes the Plunger is Moving, Just Not Far Enough to Allow the Gas to Enter the Jets. 4- Depending on the Model Mower, it can Also be the Pickup Tube in the Gas Tank. If No Fire, then Remove the Shut Off Wire from the Coil and Check for Fire. If Still No Fire, then the Ign Module or Coil is Bad. **Even if the Coil is New of Fairly New, it can Still be Bad.** On JD Mowers; Remove the Igniter/Module and the Coil and have the Local JD Dealer Test them.
The Carburetor Solenoid Closes Off the Main Carburetor Jet and the Purpose is to Prevent Engine Run-on and Backfiring when the Engine is Turned Off.
