Question about Craftsman 20 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model

1 Answer

Model 917.276180/42"/20hp Having trouble starting! The key turns but nothing happens immediately. Next I notice smoke coming from an electrical part on the engines right side which this part is connected to a red cable. (It looks like a small black oil filter but I know its electrical) Will start slowly after waiting approx 30 mins after making first attempt by playing with choke.

Turned key once, it tried to start but didn't, turned key again but nothing happens except smoking under hood. what is going on with my car?


If you are having smoke coming from under the hood you may have an electrical issue. Check battery and cables for no corrossion as well as tight connections. You may also have a high amperage draw from the starter motor causing excess heat in the wiring producing smoke and may have to have the starter replaced.

Smoking from under hood


A leak of some fluid, probably oil, dripping onto the exhaust. This smells terrible, and it only needs a drop or two.

I have a Jacuzzi J340 Hot Tub. I am having trouble with the heating. When the pump is on, the water circulates just fine. once the heater kicks on, it runs for about 10 seconds, then clicks to OH, and...


make sure the heating element isnt touching the casing inside the heating tube. if its an indoor tub, make sure the filtration cycles are not set to constant. constant filter cycles on an indoor tub will generate residual heat from the circ pump running 24/7, causing tub to heat past 104 degrees

Hello:Try this procedure: turn key on, turn to start, let key come back to on wait ten minutes, turn key off wait 10 seconds turn key back on wait 10 minutes. turn key off wait 10 seconds turn key back on wait 10 minutes turn key off wait 10 seconds NOW try and start. In addition you might try tapping on switch assembly while trying to start. There is not any way to disable passlock. You might try having the engine control system codes read

I have a 1996 eldorado, after changing oil at jlube i started the car and noticed ac on and temperature set as hot as possible,i took off and immediately smoke came out of vents and now theres no air...


there is nothing that is going to break by having the AC on and then turning up the temperature all the way except a little worse fuel mileage. Keep in mind that your AC comes on during the defrost mode to help dry the air inside your car so your windows dont fog up. If there is no air movement then it sounds like the blower fan decided it was time to quit. It just happened now instead of the middle of winter or the day you needed the defroster--(defogger)

Electrical Problems


Do not leave the car in the garage without the battery disconnected until you locate the source of the smoke, the best tool to find the smoke's source is your nose, smell the area around the source of the smoke, if you smell a really nauseating smell you found it, then look for signs of burnt wires or burnt components, also look for any oil that may have caused the smoke, but I doubt that was the source, this sounds electrical. I know of no problems for your car that would cause this, so most likely it is not a common problem.
