Craftsman riding lawn mower won t cut grass


Does it die when you attempt to engage the cutting deck? If so the you might have a clogged fuel filter, bad gas, dirty air filter, bad spark plug.
Or the mower engage switch may be faulty. They are located in different places on different mowers. But should be attached somewhere along the main pivot of the engage lever. Let me know if you need more assistance. Good Luck!!

Try this.
When the mower is about to die, loosen the gas cap.
My mower gas cap vent holes plugged up and kept stalling the mower.
If it works, drill out the vent holes.

Sounds like dirt or water in your fuel system. Have you drained the bowl on the bottom of the carburator? There is a small bolt on the bottom of the bowl; be careful not to over tighten it. If you find anything but fuel in the bowl you may need to drain your tank as well.

it sounds like you have compression but the fuel air mixture is out of setting. This could be due partialy to a stuck fuel needle or mixture needles that are worn or out of allignment.

Motor runs for 5-10 min. then starts missing and quits.


Check your spark first,if you do not have spark your problem is the coils-if you do have spark the problem probaly lies withone of your valves getting stuck after getting hot and soonas it cools down a little it closes and then you can restart it till it gets hot again.Hope this helps
