Craftsman deck raise lever plunger button

I have a 42" rider and the red plunger button for raising the deck is missing. I bought the replacement part but can't figure out how to install the spring wire that releases the deck raising lever onto the new replacement part.

Stick it in the end of the handle and screw it down. It threads onto the 'spring'.

Where is the safety switch to engage the blade


Your lawn tractor will have a lever that raises and lowers the mower deck which houses the two cutting blades. By lowering your mower deck to the desired cutting height, the blades should automatically engage. By raising the deck back to it's highest position, the blades will automatically disengage. Should be simple enough. You can consult your mower manual. If you don't have one, you can easily find it online using the make, model and year of the lawn tractor.

I have a craftsman riding mower with a 42 inch deck and when i raise the deck only one side raises and the other side is on the ground. how can i fix this?


You need to verify the linkage for both sides is properly connected. You may have lost the pin holding the linkage together on one side, allowing the deck to stay on the ground.

I purchased a used Craftsman LT 1000 17 hp 42"


I've had to do this at least 5 times. If you look under the body, there are two supports that carry the mower deck and lift and lower it. Each of these has a nut that holds up the deck and the nut is on a stud that goes up and down when you raise or lower the lever. Put the deck in the middle of it's range, around #3, make sure the key is off, move your blades so they are on the right and left edge of the deck.
Get yourself a device to measure blade to ground height, I have a block of wood that is 3 inches long. Make sure your floor or ground is level and tires are properly pumped up. Then raise or lower the adjustment nuts until both sides are equal height.

Deck only raises a little bit, not the way it is supposed to. Selections 1-4 is the same level, resting on the ground. how do i fix this


The bolts or wing nuts for the deck adjustment have likely come loose or off entirely from the raising/ lowering undercarriage.
Once you have identified the loose or missing nuts (and replaced, making sure to add lock washers) then move the mower to a flat, level surface and move height lever to the lowest setting (some mowers have a flap over an ultra-low setting for this purpose).
Now tighten the nuts on the raising / lowering arms. You should now have normal control over the height. Farmerbear at FixYa.com

My deck is way too low. How do I adjust it?


Your mower should have a lever on it that you move to raise or lower your deck. The lever will normally have the slots that it locks into numbered like the trans gears if yours is not automatic.

How to adjust mower deck height


There should be two threaded rods with a nut on them that goes from the frame to the deck. Check the height of each blade and which ever side is out of balance you can disconnect that sides rod (usually held onto the mount with a clip or cotter pin) and turn the rod to either raise or lower your deck until it is level.

The above was for leveling your deck.

If you just need to raise or lower the deck depends on if you have a lever on the right side with a push button on top just depress the push button and push forward to lower or pull back to raise.
It might have a round knob that you turn to raise or lower.

Good luck
