Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

The last time I used the mower, it was running fine then cut off while I was mowing. I haven't been able to get it restarted. I changed the spark plug, filled the gas tank and added oil. It still will not start. It has ran without fail for about 5 years (maybe longer) until just now. What could be keeping it from starting?

Maybe the ignition module is gone bad. It helps fire the spark plug to make the motor to run. Also if it has a stop cable on it make sure the cable pulls back far enough to pull the flywheel brake off the flywheel.
If your mower was running then quit, it sounds like the ignition module bad.

It sputters and belches out large clouds of blue smoke


mine recommends using only detergent oil rated API service classification SG-SL. Sounds like an older model and the synthetic may be to thin. Try changing the oil to a SAE 30 to see.

What's the hurry


What's this marketing ploy now days about cutting your lawn mowing time in half. I can understand that if u have a bunch of lawns to mow. Beings i only have one, I'm really not a big hurry. Take a look at your yard, do some thinking, and don't over spend. I only want to have to sharpen 2 blades not 3 or 4, and the less drive belts the better. U get your exercise with a walk behind, and get the grass cut too. Last time I was mower shopping, one salesman tried to sell me a 6,900.00 lawn mower. He said it would cut my mowing time in half. I said I'm not buying a mowing that's worth more than my pickup, and for 6,900.00 I could pay someone to mow my yard, and cut my mowing time down to zero.

Have a cub cadet 50 inch cut zero turn, after cutting grass for 30 min or so it acts like wants to die but if I shut the PTO off it catches up but will start to die if I reengage the blades. starts a


When it starts cutting out and you turn off the PTO, how long do you have to wait until it can be turned on again? It sounds as if your PTO is overheating and loading down the engine. Run the mower for about 10 minutes, shut it off, and carefully feel the PTO housing. Resume cutting and repeat after it starts cutting out.

Replacing it is not as simple as changing the spark plug, but does not require an advanced degree.

Husqvarna Lawn Tractor LGT 2654 (from Lowes) B&S Intek V-Twin 725cc 26 gross hp 110 hrs. I had a couple of problems with the 2654 in the past but they were electrical. Now the engine seems to...


A common loss of power problem with B&S V twins is a set of crumpled valve push rods. Means you are running on one cylinder which is generally OK unless you also want to mow. Easy to check, pull one plug wire at a time off. If it continues to run on one cylinder but not the other, that is your dead cylinder. As the intake is not opening, there will not be a wet plug. Costs nothing to check and could be your problem.

that sounds like your issue exatly. That would be the only thing that would let it die, re fire, then not restart again. If it was a fuel issue it would have still restarted, a spark issue it would still have started.
