Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model

2 Answers

Craftsman mower is stalling.

It could run for 10 minute or so and then stall. I turn it off and it starts back up. This is the third cut after I had it serviced over the spring. It has plenty of gas. What could be the problem?

Vapor lock. Try putting in a new fuel filter and moving the fuel line away from the engine block to keep it from heating up and vaporizing in the line (which blocks additional fuel needed to keep it running).

Sounds like the safety switch may have stuck. Allowing it to set, the switch "released". Just my guess.

Stall or quits? Will it run 15 minutes again after it cools down. Check
carb bowl for water. Loosen the bottom screw a little until gas come out and water will "roll" off the gas that drops out on the deck.

Sounds like you coil is over heating after running a few minutes. The windings are seperating, then when it sools they make contact again. Try replacing the coil.

Check the muffler, if the muffler is clogged it could cause overheating of the engine, and could keep the engine from getting the necessary fuel-gas mixture.

I do believe they change plug(s) and air filter? There could be impurities and water in tank. Check for any loose electrical connections. Problem with valve clearance. Keep me informed.
