    The fuse was blown. I've replaced the fuse twice now and it blows every time I attempt to start it - something is shorted some where?

Make sure there is no corrosion on the battery terminal connections and check the fuse and safety switches clutch, brake,seat.

    If it blows immediately it is a short. If it opens over time it is a high amp draw producing heat. Look for bad connections especially the battery terminals. Loose spade connectors are a clue as to which circuit is acting up as they will loosen when overheated also. eric

The first time this happened to me it was because the mower blades were engaged, I had left the red button up when I shut it off.

Craftsman tractor lt2000 with 17hp Kohler won't start. Ran fine last week. Rebuilt carb, changed oil, and new plug & fuel filter month ago. Has spark and fuel. Cranks but won't fire.


Hi Mike:
It's trying to make you crazy.
I have a model YT4000 and it is a PITA to start when cold.
I pull the air filter, toss in a bit of gas to prime it, and it starts instantly.

I'd suggest that you give yours another try. 3 or 4 times of a couple of seconds each. If it doesn't go, pull a spark plug and see if it is wet or dry. Wet indicates getting gas but no spark. Dry indicates not getting gas.
While you have the plug out, check the spark... Hot & blue.
Hope this gives you some more to work with.

Craftsman LT2000 tractor seems to drain batteries over a 3 t 4 month period. Works fine then it just dies after 3 or 4 months and battery is shot?


Check your charging system! The alternator may be bad. If you can't get it repaired, just put a trickle charger on the battery the night before use. That is not a fix but will get you by...Lee

Cratsman lt2000 lawn tractor will start but will not move forward or backward. I tried changing the drive belt, but that didn't work.


Is the transaxle pulley turning? If so have you removed the rear wheel recently and possibly lost the square key that fits on the axle?check those two items first.If ok it probably has a broken gear or shift key in transaxle.
