Check your charging system! The alternator may be bad. If you can't get it repaired, just put a trickle charger on the battery the night before use. That is not a fix but will get you by...Lee

Craftsman tractor lt2000 with 17hp Kohler won't start. Ran fine last week. Rebuilt carb, changed oil, and new plug & fuel filter month ago. Has spark and fuel. Cranks but won't fire.


Hi Mike:
It's trying to make you crazy.
I have a model YT4000 and it is a PITA to start when cold.
I pull the air filter, toss in a bit of gas to prime it, and it starts instantly.

I'd suggest that you give yours another try. 3 or 4 times of a couple of seconds each. If it doesn't go, pull a spark plug and see if it is wet or dry. Wet indicates getting gas but no spark. Dry indicates not getting gas.
While you have the plug out, check the spark... Hot & blue.
Hope this gives you some more to work with.

SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED BOTH THE ALTERNATOR AND THE STARTER TESTED.THE CAR SHOULD STAY RUNNING OFF THE ALTERNATOR ONCE BOOSTED,IT SHOULD START OFF THE BATTERY WHEN FULLY CHARGED.

Loss of drive in a Craftsman Lawn tractor


I also have a Craftsman tractor with the same problem. Sears repairman said it needed a new transmission and it would cost $1,400 to install. A new one is about $1,000. Anyway, if you remove the battery and the battery tray under the seat it will expose the transmission fill hole (hex). I opened the top and it looked empty. I had a bottle of 90 weight gear oil in my shop and filled the transmission to the top. I have not had any problems with it since. $4.00 bottle of oil verses a new tractor is worth a try.
