    pull the carb bowl to see if the float needle is stuck. gas can leak by and let it start but then it will die, and not start again. Good Luck

2008 Craftsman lawn tractor


Tip for 2008 Craftsman lawn tractor that runs for about 30 minutes then starts to cut out and dies, and will not restart. These tractors have a defective gas cap that will not vent. Simply remove gas cap and reinstall loosely. The best fix is replace gas cap. If your tractor is less than two years old Sears will replace it free. preview_graphic.jpg

Stall or quits? Will it run 15 minutes again after it cools down. Check
carb bowl for water. Loosen the bottom screw a little until gas come out and water will "roll" off the gas that drops out on the deck.

I have a 7 year Craftsman 17.5 HP 42 in. lawn tractor. It starts to leak gas recently and stops frequently after running over 30-40 minutes. I can not identified where is the gas leak from but I saw gas on...


I have a Craftsman mower. Last year I had a similar problem with the mower stopping after running awhile. I noticed that the plastic gas tank was collapsing. The next time it began to stall, I immediately loosened the gas cap and it didn't stall. The vent holes in the cap had plugged up. Check this out.
I can't help you locate the fuel leak, although it sounds like the carburetor float is not stopping gas from flowing into the carburetor.

Tractor starts, but runs for about a minute, then starts to miss and then stalls. Sometimes it will not start again for awhile. Please advise.

YS 4500 Stalls out after running for 20 mins


I do believe they change plug(s) and air filter? There could be impurities and water in tank. Check for any loose electrical connections. Problem with valve clearance. Keep me informed.
