I would check the safety switches. also try jumping it off because a new battery also may be dead.

SOURCE: need a blade engagement cable diagram for a 2002 craftsman lt1000

as far as i know, there is no diagram available for the cable replacement. it is covered briefly in the owner's manual, but the best way to do it is to study carefully how the old one is routed, and replace a step at a time

SOURCE: Craftsman LT 1000 I replaced the battery,

be sure you are sitting on the mower with the clutch pedal pushed down,blade engagement in off position,
there may be a safety switch bad or a wire pulled off of one or more of them or a bad starter solenoid which is a high failure item.
Check safety seat switch wires under seat,look under mower for clutch pedal switch wires located under mower near clutch pedal, check the blade safety switch if its a manual blade engagement? The (starter solenoid) you will need to find the red wire on your battery and follow it until you find it or from the starters red wire back towards battery.
Once you find it inspect the solenoid to be sure wires are in tact,then find a dc volt meter and check to see if you have voltage(12volts dc min.) to the small red wire hooked to the solenoids coil (near the bottom) when the the ignition key is turned to start position(one of your meters wire to the coil wire and one to a good ground,,if your meter goes backwards reverse the meter leads)Note:lock the clutch pedal down before you do this) If you have voltage to this wire when key is turned to start position? solenoid is most likely bad or if you dont have voltage trace that wire backwards until you find voltage then you may have found your culprit.

My craftsman LT 1000 wouldn't start, it's silent. I changed my battery - still the same.


1. try jumping your mower battery with your car/battery and see if it cranks. If it does, charge your battery. If it doesnt
2. try jumping directly from battery to starter. If that works, its your starter solenoid. If it doesnt,
3. change the starter.
I would need engine model number in order to find your part numbers.

I have 16 hp Kohler engine with a compression release not working,help.


i have a Kohler 16 Magnum opposed cylinder engine and it wont crank over with the spark plugs in it,battery and starter are both good,its an aluminum engine and i have seen several of the Kohler engines break the automatic compression release on the cam gear and they seem to lock up while trying to start,pull the plugs and the crank fine,Kokler is the most expensive engine i have seen and their parts are outrageously priced,old Kokler was a good engine,newer ones in my opinion are junk,i work at a small engine shop,i have seen new Kohler engines with a broken ACRs,i work at a second job,we got a new supervisor that worked for Kohler before her came to our plant,he said he worked customer service at Kohler and he heard complaints constantly from people using their engines and the returns were out the roof on their engines,what im saying is i wont ever but another Kohler unless itsm an old one,Thanks Tommy

Check the wire from the ignition switch to the small terminal on your solenoid with a volt meter to make sure you are getting current to the solenoid. If not try a "jumper wire" connected to the same terminals and see if it now cranks. If it does, replace the wire
