Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

I have a dlt3000 18.5 intek. After 15-30 mins of mowing the engine sputters and dies. I can shake the mower erratically while it is starting to die and it stays alive, but as soon as I stop it dies. I can immediately restart and idle fine, but as soon as i engage the the blade or gear it wants to sputter and die again. Thanks for your time!

Just received my model 247.290001 mower was mowing when engine dies and will not turn over now


Did it stop suddenly? Or splutter and cough like an engine problem? If suddenly I'd suggest checking the seat switch wire hasn't become disconnected, if this doesn't solve it then check all the other safety switches.

Does the mower die right away (cuts out) or does it sputter to a halt. Sputtering out would indicate a fuel problem. If it just cuts out when hot, then more likely an ignition problem. Your coil may need replacing. Take a close look at the coil wire (spark plug wire) and its routing. Make sure it's not touching part of the engine where it's heating up and has caused a "leak" to ground it out when it gets hot. If all is well then check your spark when the engine is hot and cuts out. Make sure you have a very good blue spark and not a weak one (check it cold first and then compare!). Again, indicating a possible ignition coil problem. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.

Mower will start up cold, i will mow for a half hour then it sputters and dies. After it sits for a while and cools it will start again, but not as easily as the first time. It will again mow for a while...


The valves DO NEED adjusting every 250 to 300 hours of service. That is why it dies out beleive me. It is not that hard to do if you have a service manual to help you along to perform this task

Check your magneto. I have had them cease to function whenever they would get hot. When cooled down, they would work.

It may have damaged the piston ring lands (grooves) by slapping the piston with oil. If you have the compression tested it will tell you a lot, the mower should be around 100 - 120 psi, anything less and the engine is likely not worth repairing, if you like the mower buy a short block.

Sputtering Mower


It might not be disengaging the mower deck all the way off. I had this problem on an older model.
