Question about Craftsman 42 in. Precision Cut Plus 24hp Lawn Tractor

1 Answer

I replaced the drive belt and still lose all speed when going up slight inclines while mowing. I completely cleaned, powerwashed and lubricated all pivot points and slides by idler/tensioner pulleys. Has been getting worse over past month. I can only make it up a small incline by moving the automatic transmission lever slightly up from full speed position.

The belt is slipping it needs to be tightened. Might try a belt dressing that helps prevent slippage.

Cuts off and speed is variable and shows err 4


Precor Error E4, Incomplete Initialization Probable Cause Indicates that an incomplete upper PCA to lower PCA initialization occurred. When this error occurs, all lift motor and drive motor motion is ceased and the display will go blank except for the error displayed.
Corrective Action Run the initialization program. Caution: The treadmill's running belt will accelerate to the treadmill's maximum speed (12mph). DO NOT stand on the treadmill's running belt during the procedure.
  1. Set the on/off switch to the OFF position. Wait a minimum of 10 seconds to allow the internal power supply to discharge.
  2. Remove the safety key from the console and set the on/off switch to the ON position.
  3. Press INCLINE UP and SPEED DOWN keys together. While pressing these keys, replace the safety switch on the console. Continue holding the INCLINE UP and SPEED DOWN keys until the display goes blank. INIT will appear in the time window of the display. The EEPROM is now clear and reset. After a second, 1.25 will appear in the distance/calories window, 15.0 (the maximum incline) will appear in the incline window, and 12.0 (the maximum speed) will flash in the speed/pace window.
  4. Press QUICKSTART to begin the speed calibration process. Power bits will appear in the incline window, the target speed will appear in the time window and the actual speed will appear in the speed/pace window. At the beginning of the process, the target speed will be .5mph. The running belt will start. Once the actual speed reaches .5mph, the target speed will then change to 12mph and the running belt will accelerate until it reaches 12mph, then it will stop.
  5. When the running belt stops, the display will return to the user mode and the initialization process is complete.

Hydrostatic on husqvarna cth 180 xp losing power


Check the drive belt. This belt runs from the engine to the transaxle. Look for abnormal wear and if the sides of the belt look glazed/shiny. Check the pulley mechanism that tightens the belt for proper operation and belt tension while engaged.
Try reducing the speed selector. This is equivalent to running in a lower gear. Your tractor works hard just to turn the blade. Going uphill requires additional power, so some reduction in speed is to be expected.

Rider loses power after mowing for 30 - 45 minutes. Gets to a point, it won't climb a small incline. Engine sounds good & the deck runs fine. Just won't go.


Hi, the hydrostatic drive is most likely over heating. Remove the battery and battery carrier, from here you can clean all grass and debris from the hydro cooling fins and fan. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Proform 350s crosstrainer treadmill; surges 3 MPH to 4MPH


Walking Belt is Worn: The only certain way to test for a worn walking belt is to take a DC amp draw (if you have a DC treadmill) or an AC draw (for AC). Trying to look at the belt or a feel test is highly unreliable. Better tests, if you lack a DC ammeter (they are expensive for a good one), are a coast test or an incline test. The coast test is to get on the treadmill as the lowest incline setting and walk on the treadmill at 3 MPH. Pull the safety key and it should take you 2-3 full steps to stop (this is a general rule…some like a few Tunturi models stop on a dime even with a healthy belt but for most models, this tests works well upon). Fewer steps indicate high friction. The incline test is to put the treadmill at max incline and walk on it at 3 MPH. If the treadmill operates normally at max incline but bogs down at minimum incline, replace the walking belt. Gravity takes over for the drive system eliminating much of the friction problem. On some heavily worn walking belts, this test will not eliminate the problem. Go to your local hard ware store and purchase silicone spray. Apply Lubricant by lift one side of the running belt spray contents length wise starting at motor shroud to the back end repeat this process on the other side. If this unit bogs down again then you will have replace the running belt and possibly the deck

1-Error 2 keeps appearing on the screen 2-It


3 possible areas that can be causing the problem speed sensor , motor control Board ( MCB ) or the drive motor. Unplug unit remove motor shroud then plug in unit now on the MCB their should be L E D s lights should be on. One of the L E D s should speed on other P W M . Start your treadmill you see the PWM light flickering thus the upper console and cable connections are good now it will go back to ERROR 1. Check the connection that leads from the motor the board with a mutli-meter insert them in the motor connectors and start the unit their should be a D C voltage out if not the board is bad and need to be replaced. If not reset your treadmill then manually start pushing the running belt2_bing.gif now the speed light should be flickering if it does then the speed sensor is good if not flickering then replace sensor. If we have a good speed sensor then I would check the Drive Motor this done unplugging the unit the disconnect the two leads coming from the motor to MCB then by using a fully charge 18v drill battery connecting the leads to the motor should move it at approx; 1 mph if no belt movement you for the most part will have worn brushes or open windings in the motor. Also I check the belt and since the majority of the problems ( 75 to 85% of time)start with lack of maintenance ( lubrication)thus causing added expense to the consumer.
Here is a typical guide for maintenance their may be a slight variation from different manufacturers all in all the same.
NOTE: To prevent electrical shock, be certain the treadmill is turned off and unplugged from the electrical outlet before performing any cleaning or routine maintenance. TREADBELT LUBRICATION For average use of your treadmill, factory recommends you lubricate under the treadbelt once per year. For heavy use, which is more than 10 hours per week, factory recommendation is lubricating every six months. . LUBRICATION PROCEDURE: 1. Turn off and unplug treadmill. 2. Cut off the end of the tube of lubricant. 3. Holding the tube in one hand, insert the tube underneath the treadbelt halfway between front and back and halfway between right and left. 4. Squeeze the full contents of the tube onto the deck in a circular pattern in the center 1/3 of the deck. 5. Plug in and turn on treadmill, then walk normally on treadmill at 0.5 mph for five minutes. CLEANING DAILY: Perspiration should be wiped from the control console and treadmill surfaces after your workout. CLEANING WEEKLY: You should wipe down your treadmill once a week with a water dampened, soft cloth. Be careful not to get excessive moisture between the edge of the digital display panel and the console, as this might create an electrical hazard or cause the electronics to fail. IMPORTANT: DO NOT CLEAN OR WIPE THE TOP OF THE DECK UNDER THE CENTER OF THE RUNNING BELT. MONTHLY: Clean dust and dirt that might accumulate under and behind your treadmill once a month. Small rubber particles from the soles of walking shoes will accumulate alongside the belt and also behind the unit
