Found my 20amp fuse in the bottom of an electrical block under hood on the ignition key side it was not visible till I took block loose from mounting point. Not in any manual or web-site. This is an easy way for a shop to charge for and easy fix.

If it has a Briggs and Stratton motor open the hood and look all along the wire harnesses. There might be an automotive type plug in 20 amp fuse that has blown. If it did blow there is a reason. First look for a dead short somewhere. Mine was a loose wiring terminal at the headlight. Replace fuse and try to start.

2008 Craftsman lawn tractor


Tip for 2008 Craftsman lawn tractor that runs for about 30 minutes then starts to cut out and dies, and will not restart. These tractors have a defective gas cap that will not vent. Simply remove gas cap and reinstall loosely. The best fix is replace gas cap. If your tractor is less than two years old Sears will replace it free. preview_graphic.jpg

Engine will not turn over


I would check the key switch, the solenoid and the cables, your problem is most likely in one of those three. When you say you have plenty of voltage, what are you checking it with and how old is the battery? Batteries for lawn mowers only last about 1-2 years. And if they are a smaller cranking amp battery on a larger hp then they will not last as long.

oftentimes the things will not start after sitting idle all winter as last year's gasoline has turned into a lacquer which has blocked the flow of fuel through the small passages in the carburetor. there is at least one product, called Stabil, which you dump into the gas tank which precludes this. So maybe a carb rebuild and clean out is in order; and if it then works OK you should make a point to put some of that stuff in your tank at the end of the season. Works well for RVs also.

My craftsman lawn tractor seemed to overheat and struggle with hesitation. I replaced the spark plugs, cleaned the filter and added oil, however, it still seeems a little sluggish with hesitation. Do you...


Check the oil, if it is a milky color then it has water in it and will cause it to over heat. Also smell it for gas that will also cause it to over heat. Has any other work been done recently?
