Check the seat switch for the running problem. Disconnect the switch and jump the harness with a piece of wire, and see if the tractor stays running. If so, then the switch is bad. As for the charging problem. Test the voltage regulator. Start the tractor and put a volt meter across the battery. Red to red and black to black. Run the RPM to full throttle. You should have a reading of 14 to 14.5 volts. If not, the regulator is bad. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Craftsman 19hp won't move when in gear

There is a square key about 2 " long that fits in the slot on the axle and wheel and locks them together.. You probably didn't see it when putting tire back on and knocked it out. If you go back where you removed tire, you'll find it laying on the ground.

Make sure that when you check the oil that the mower has sat I say for at least 5mins. Your mower might have an oil sencer. If not I think it might be the coil gettin hot and shorting out.

What is used to lubricate the transaxle of craftsman gt5000 garden tractor. Is it grease only or 80-90w oil?


If tractor is _very_ old (and/or worn), you can't go wrong with 90-145w gear oil. Someone may have used grease for a bad leak, but heavy gear oil should work for you. Remove as much grease as possible without using solvent, and then fill with heavy gear oil. You'll be ok. (Later on check level and ''top-off'' if necessary).

Tansmission oil type for model# 917.254740


Hi,

Your Craftsman is equipped with a Agri-Fab transaxle, the predecessor to the Hydro-Gear brand. The recommended oil is 10w-30. Unfortunately, the transaxle on your craftsman tractor is not serviceable. It is sealed for life. The only way to change the oil is to remove the unit from the tractor, tip it upside down and drain the oil out the reservoir plug.

I need a manual for the Craftsman Walk behind mower #917.388930. The main thing I need to know is when changing oil what is the capacity? SAE 30 non detergent I assume. Thank you.


No, you do not use non detergent oil. You must use only SAE high quality detergent oil with API service classification SG-SL . Use SAE 30 weight or 5W30 if you use the mower during cool conditions below freezing. I highly recommend you use Synthetic oil in this air cooled engine and change your oil once each year. The oil capacity is 20 ounces. You can see the owner's manual at this link. Just click Manual Location and put in the captcha and click submit.

My Craftsman 26hp tractor is running extremely ruff, I have replaced the plugs Confirmed that the plugs are working. It runs ruff at all speeds. The tractor was runing just fine a few weeks ago


You've changed the plugs have you checked the oil and air filter if not you need to because if not it might need changed and it may be low the rider my father gave me ran ruff and would die in 5th gear and I changed the oil and air filter now it stays going in all gears.So my suggestion to you is to to change the oil and air filter I am not a pro but I have had to keep my mowers going no help from anyone so I had to learn so if you don't agree with me check with a repairman.
