I unhooked my wiring harness from frame so you can get to the fuse. The gas tank shouldn't be that to remove. 4 bolts and the gas line.

I have a 15.5 HP, Craftman lawn tractor. I'm having problem with it staying running. It will run just find for 20-30 minutes and then stop abruptly. I have changed the spark plug, oil, cleaned the air...


Hi,


Check the Blade Safety Switch. Also check if the Carburettor requires a good cleaning and overhaul or not. After that check if there is any air leak or air in the fuel line.


Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Should the fuel filter have gas in it while running - Craftman lawn tractor - 917.271024


Yes, fuel system is gravity fed. If there is fuel in the tank, there should be fuel in the filter.

I have a craftsman gt 6000 with kohler 18 hp magnum today it started fine and ran goodd for over an hour i put gas in it and ti would not stay runing it stated surging and popping and cuts off


Your carb is full of trash. you also probaly need to clean out the bottom of your fuel tank, blow out your lines and replace the fuel filter. I have 2 mowers with kohler engines and clean out the fuel tanks fuel lines and carbs 1 time a year. There is also a fuel shut solenoid on the carb this is normally problem if the engine does not run. but I am certain your problem is a simple fix, all you have to do is clean everything out in the fuel system.

Craftman 11 lawn mower...wont start have checked the plugs and it has spark and the carb works fine but still does not run...please help


Hi..my name is Keith..and if you have sparkand it wont start..i would suspect old gas..lawn mowers are very sensitive to gasoline..and it likes fresh gas..but if you do have gas in it that is more than a month old..it needs to be drained and not mixed with fresh gas..but im just going on what you are saying about having spark and the carb is working fine..i hope this has helped..if not please write me back

Won't stay running


Try cleaning out the fuel tank and replacing the fuel filter. What happens is it has enuf gas to run but not enuf to run when it demans more power. You might find earwigs int he tank clogging the fuel hole at the bottom (common problem)

good luck
