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.

Craftsman DYS 4500. Mower was running, then stopped. Can't restart; oil very low


There are cam rods in the front of the engine. Sometimes, one may break. Open the cover to check. Of course keep sufficient oil in the crankcase, but if it stopped while you were running it, I don't think that is the problem.

Need to know how to change oil


the drain plug should be on the side of the engine that the muffler is on near the bottom of the engine, may look like a small pipe with a threaded cap. remove cap and drain oil into a pan. when empty replace cap. remove the dip stick and pour about a 1/4 quart (to start) and check for level, if still low add more (little at a time) until it reaches the full mark...good luck

My craftsman 15.5HP kohler riding mower turns over


Try cleaning or better yet, replacing the spark plug. Depending on age and how your tractor was maintained, there are other possible causes.
  • Gummed up fuel system
  • dirty fuel filter
  • defective or misaligned armature/magneto (part that causes your plug to spark, igniting the air/fuel mixture, thus starting the engine)
  • throttle linkage/cable problems
  • low oil level. Some Kohler engines use a low oil shut down sensor which won't allow the engine to run or start to avoid internal damage.
  • Mechanical engine problems
I hope you find this solution helpful. Please rate it thanks for using Fixya!
