SOURCE: Craftsman 17.5 HP 42 in mower stops after approx 1/2 hour of use

Hello jon3208:

>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File I made for this. Any Input is Appreciated. I Usually Suggest you Check the Following in this Order for a Problem like yours. **CHANGE ANY SPRING STYLE HOSE CLAMPS TO THE SCREW STYLE HOSE CLAMPS*** 1- Check the Gas Tank Cap and Ensure it is Venting the Tank. A Vacuum Builds in the Tank and the Gas Flow Stops or Slows (15 to 45 Minutes and if the Small Grainular Sand is in the Tank it can Take Several Days of Constant Running to Bring All the Sand Particales to the Tank Outlet Port) to a Point it Shuts Off the Engine. 2- Operate the Equipment Until it Quits (15min to 1hr). Then Immediately Check for Fire from the Plug. If the Plug is Firing, then 3- Check the Carburetor Solenoid. If the Carburetor Shut Off Solenoid has Current, then Remove the Carburetor Solenoid and Go to the Hardware Store. Purchase a Bolt of the Same Diameter and Threads. It Needs to be 3/4" Long. Put this Bolt in Place of the Solenoid. If this Corrects the Engine Problem, then Replace the Solenoid. ***NOTE: THIS IS FOR CHECKING THE SOLENOID ONLY I NEVER SUGGEST YOU OPERATE THE ENGINE WITH THE SOLENOID OUT OF THE CARBURETOR EXCEPT FOR TESTING PURPOSES*** Sometimes the Plunger is Moving, Just Not Far Enough to Allow the Gas to Enter the Jets. 4- Depending on the Model Mower, it can Also be the Pickup Tube in the Gas Tank. If No Fire, then Remove the Shut Off Wire from the Coil and Check for Fire. If Still No Fire, then the Ign Module or Coil is Bad. **Even if the Coil is New of Fairly New, it can Still be Bad.** On JD Mowers; Remove the Igniter/Module and the Coil and have the Local JD Dealer Test them.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

SOURCE: my murray 17 hp 42 inch cut hydrostat mower will

Hydrostat transaxles are very picky like the trans in your car. It must have clean fluid and be full of fluid. I am not saying to fill that transaxle to the top but make sure it is to the top of the fill line. Also it needs to be changed every few years and keep it clean to help it stay cool. If it has a filter make sure to change it when you change the fluid in the transaxle. That fluid is nothing more than 20-50W motor oil.

How do I add oil to my sears garden tractors transaxle model no. 917.273320


I'am not sure about this model. Craftsman,usually services the Transaxle at the factory. Requiring no further servicing,unless you have a leak developing,then an overhaul of the transaxle has to be made.I would get a professional in a mower shop,to make this repair. Or Sears does this sort of work. I have seen this Transaxle,(A Peerless Transaxle),torn down for repairs. There is more small parts to this transaxle,then anyone other than a Sears Tech or someone trained to do this. Its more work,than a weekend doer can possible do. Hope this is answers your question,Brad Locke DTD. 12/03/15

Rear pulley snapped of transaxle, is this fixable & at what cost


Theoretically yes, it is possible. The cost of the parts (and labor if you don't do it yourself) are prohibitive for this; you would have to replace the transaxle, or it would even be possible to weld the shaft if it didn't break too close to the housing. You even have the option of taking the case apart and welding it, but internal transmission parts are rarely sold separately from the transaxle itsself. All in all, by the time you got done replacing the transaxle, you would be nearing the territory of the cost of a new mower. My suggestion is to remove as many parts as you can salvage from it, ebay them off, and use that towards a different mower.

Tractor moves but buck and learches


If it is a hydrostatic transaxle check to see if it is leaking,if it is then there really is no economical repair to transaxle. If it isn't leaking then It sounds like the oil in transaxle is degraded.The transaxle is supposed to be a sealed unit requiring no service but over time the oil will get dirty enough to cause problems like you are describing.Remove the back hitch plate and look at the transaxle it will have a rubber vent hose or a 1/4 Allen wrench fitting on top. You will need to purchase a battery suction bulb from sears automotive and use it to remove as much oil from transaxle as possible. Warm the transaxle up first by running it around,then suction the oil out.Refill with a good synthetic motor oil 15w-50 or 20w-50 like Amsoil or Mobil 1.Do not use transmission fluid or hydraulic fluid. When adding the new oil back fill it to within 1.5 in from the top,be sure to allow this amount of air space in top of transaxle for expansion.
