Craftsman lt 1000


Sounds like you installed the blades backwards, so the blunt edge of the blades are hitting the tall grass. This would cause the engine to bog down and almost die.
When replacing blades, always note the direction of the cutting edge. If possible, take a digital photograph of the old blades so you can refer to the picture so you can be sure of the direction.
If you go to Sears.com and search your model number, you should be able to find an owners manual that tells you how to install the blades.

Maybe the wire to the seat switch came off or broke, or the switch came loose from vibration. Have you checked?

My craftsman lt 2000 starts fine but stalls as soon as i let go of the clutch, does anyone know what this may be? Thanks in advance


What do you mean by the "Clutch"? You mean the handlebar lever? That is the engine break and it is suppose to kill the engine and stop it immediately when you release it for safety reasons. You need to hold it while mowing, or do what I do and wrap a piece of velcro around it to the handlebar. Not sure if this is your problem with what you posted; just trying to help with the info you gave me.

I have a craftsman gt 5000 model 917.276220 runs fine but when mowing deck is engaged it wants to die when under a load or cutting tall grass, it will stay running but when i start to cut it bogs down?


not possitive, but sounds like 1 of the bearings on the mower deck is starting to seaze up.I would start with that. Remove the deck and belts and check all the pullys and bearings for free movement.

Craftsman lt 2000, blade not staying in place


i would need a complete sears model number to look this up for you, however, you will need to remove the intire blade spindle housing, then you can remove just the shaft from the housing. and just replace the shaft. Will save a lt of money.
if you can find the complete model number you can go on the internet to

mtd.com/parts or to ayp.com/parts

and you can pull up a parts diagram and find the exact part number and order it online, or take model number to sears and they will either have it in stock or can order it for you. Sears will however cost you a fair amount more then ordering online. I hope this helps you

Intek 6.5 HP in a Craftsman 21'' mulcher/bagger --loss of power--


No - 6.5HP is enough to cut 3" at a fast walking pace. I would suspect a blown head gasket.
