I have a craftsman riding mower model 247.288810. While cutting my lawn the engine all stalled and would not start anymore. I changed the spark plug and the battery is new, what could it be?

My craftsman LT 1000 wouldn't start, it's silent. I changed my battery - still the same.


1. try jumping your mower battery with your car/battery and see if it cranks. If it does, charge your battery. If it doesnt
2. try jumping directly from battery to starter. If that works, its your starter solenoid. If it doesnt,
3. change the starter.
I would need engine model number in order to find your part numbers.

Does a bad battery cause my tractor to not turn over?


Yes. Verify it is the battery by jumping mower off with car battery. If turns over, replace battery. If cannot turnover by jumping, try bypassing start solenoid by tapping positive cable to battery post on starter. Starter should turn. If starter doesn't turn, have starter tested.

What would cause a craftsman mower not to have enough power to start #917272672


Low compression most likely. Try changing the spark plug and change the oil. Sometimes the mower won't start if the oil level is too low. If that doesn't correct the problem, then you need to either rebuild the engine or replace it.

Tractor will not start


There is an automotive fuse by the fuel tank, this controls the whole electrical system.

I have a Craftsman LT 1000 riding mower that just quit running. Won't turn over or anything. Manual suggests checking fuse as one of the options. Only problem is, I can't find the fuse! Manual says it is...


Start with the easiest thing first !
1) jump start the battery from you automobile, or install a charger for an hour. This will tell you wether you battery or connections are good.
If it started with the jump, before you replace a battery:
2) clean the cable ends and make sure cable hardware to battery posts are good and clean.
If it started with the jump, then you know the fuses are good.
If it did not start with the jump or cleaned and charged battery,
3) check the in-line fuse. Located between the key switch and the solenoid, in the wiring harness, normally behind the firewall behind the engine, or in front of the dash close to the fuel tank (if the battery is under the seat)
4) some Sears tractors use a 'relay' also located on the firewall.

Note: for now, let's see how this works. Let me know if you need further assistance. It can get more complicated, but let's keep it simple for now. rwvanlue
