Question about Craftsman 20 hp 42 in. Deck Yard Tractor

1 Answer

Tractor starts then stop running

Model 917.275390 (LT1000) and is about 4 years old. It runs for about 10 minutes (sometimes) and then stops. New battery, spark plug, air filter, fuel filter w/hose, drained tank and have clean gas, oil filter, & coil--all this year. I'm frustrated because I'm now paying to get my lawn mowed when I have a tractor in the garage (covered). I noticed a loose electricalconnector (pink end) but cannot find where it could be connected to. Are any of these wires supposed to be loose?? PLEASE HELP.

It will either be the stator that needs changing or the carb needs to be pulled off and cleaned

Try slackening the fuel filer cap, if the breather is blocked in the cap it will vacume and stop the fuel from flowing, if it runs ok with the cap loose replace the cap.

Instructions for fixing the choke on a Craftsman LT-1000 lawn tra


I have been hearing alot of this problem. Well it is gravity flow. I just bought a 2002 lt1000 17 hp without a carb the guy was having the same problem so he sent the carb away to get checked out and low and behold it got lost. He waited the summer to see if it would show up but it did not. He got mad and bought a new bigger one. Any ways i am waiting on a new one. Now in my reading these problems i discovered that the fuel line coming out of the tank to the carb is lower. Might be somthing to look at. JIM

You may try blowing backwards from behind the fuel filter into the gas line. Not to much air pressure though. Make sure the gas cap is off.

The engine runs and then stops after running. I wait and then it starts and runs again for about 1 minute and then stops again.


I have a old 2010 Diesel did the same. It was the fuel return line from the pump to the fuel tank. It's a short ? 10" long line.
Replaced it, now it runs for ever.

Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor


This sounds too easy of a solution but I had a like ptroblem with my Craftsman. I loosed the gas cap a bit and the rough running and stalling stopped. he vent on the gas cap that contains a turn over interrupt valve was plugged causing the gas not to flow. I took the cap apart and cleaned out the vent hole though cleaning the holewith a paper clip would have worked as well. Anyway..it fixed my problem. I think my dirty hands of deris deposited the matera in the vent hole when filling with gas.

Heater runs hot for a few minutes then stops heating


I would say from what you have described your problem is a bad thermostat heat sensor (you may have to replace the whole thermostat on this model!) This is a very common problem for this unit!
