Do you have a multitester? A multitester set on vdc, should tell you if your battery has discharged. Should have about 12.5 to 13.0 volts for the engine to turn over. Could be a fuse, or bad connection. How corroded are the battery terminals?
Hope that helps.

Mowing yard and stopped to go inside. Come back out and mower turned over but would not crank. Kept trying and it started clicking. Rocked the mower and it started. now does same thing but won't start


Check your charge in the battery. Clicking usually is dead battery. If the battery is good, starter may be bad (or at least the starter solenoid).

I have a LT1000 riding mower,the other day while i was mowing the engine just shut off.I tried to start it back up and does not do anything.Completely dead?


If the engine doesn't do anything then it is probably a bad relay on the starter. If it turns just a little bit, but not very fast then you either need to charge or replace the battery. You can take the battery to your local parts store and they should be able to test/charge it for you.

I'm having trouble replaceing the motion drive belt on my LT1000 lawn tractor. The mowing deck is off, the old drive belt is off. I can't get the belt around the transaxle pully. Any suggestions?


Often there is a keeper on the back of the pulley, and the belt must go inside the keeper. Get an inspection mirror up in there to look if necessary. Start by putting the belt on the transaxle pulley, then on the PTO pulley, then on the idler, last have someone sit on the mower and depress the clutch pedal while you put the belt over that pulley.

WILL NOT START craftman LT1000 YR.2000


most likely the blades are still in the on position,but you have a seat switch, parking brake switch, and the blade switch, also the mow in reverse key switch. if mower dies once you let out the clutch in reverse with blades on and key wrong.
