Open Question

Craftsman lawn tractor 17.0 hp 42" Model No. 917.273140 My tractor runs very smooth without the blazes engaged. When the blazes are engaged the mower runs great for one to three minutes then the mower start missing and wants to stop running. I would have to dis-engage the blazes for a while and engage them again in order to cut a little more. I have to repeat this process and sometimes it don't work. What is the problem?

SOURCE: Craftsman lawn tractor model new battery drains quickly...

it could be the stator in the engine check the voltage with the volt meter when its running if its low check connections on battery & voltage if its below 12.5 volts then its the stator but the only thing is the engine should run with-out the battery so there is something else going on there is a fuse in the electrical system if theres a short that fuse will blow & engine will stall

Tractor starts, stalls when blade is engaged, or brake released


you have a safety switch malfunctioning or a transistorized relay not working properly. Go to www.partsdirect.com, this is sears website. It should be able to find and illustrated parts list for your mower.

Tractor Will Not Move And Dies When Brake Is Released


I would check the wires and clean the connectors and make sure seat switch is working. If that is not working, it's like getting off the seat without holding the brake/clutch pedal down or getting off seat with blades engaged. Both will cause engine to die.
