Check your drive belt. It may be broken or fell off the pulley.

My lawnmower recently had a belt changeand a new battery and was working for about 15 minutes at the correct throttle location then died off. restarted it and now have to have the throttle all the way up...


You mentioned that you pushed the throttle all the way up. This position on Craftsman lawn tractors is usually the choke position. No power there. Just to aid starting only. As you move the throttle lever you will notice a notch. That is where the throttle should be after starting in order to mow.

If you still have difficulty, you can reply with a good description of what is going on and I will respond.

I hope this helps.

Ihave a craftsman 20 horsepower riding lawn mower. It starts fine but it barely moves. It stops moving. Seems to have no power, especially if on a slight slope. I had a new clutch installed, but still...


Either your drive belt is loose or your transmission is going bad.
I would have another mechanic, not the one who installed your "new clutch" take a look at it.

When the choke is fully up the, engine cuts out , canyou help me? can it be the carb. needs new parts? never had problems with this mower. tx. in advance guy


When the choke is full up you are flooding the engine, not allowing it to run. There should be a notch on the throttle control where you move it to after it starts. Moving the throttle control fully up helps get the engine started but you do not leave it there to run. Check the air filter as well it may be dirty.

Loss of drive in a Craftsman Lawn tractor


I also have a Craftsman tractor with the same problem. Sears repairman said it needed a new transmission and it would cost $1,400 to install. A new one is about $1,000. Anyway, if you remove the battery and the battery tray under the seat it will expose the transmission fill hole (hex). I opened the top and it looked empty. I had a bottle of 90 weight gear oil in my shop and filled the transmission to the top. I have not had any problems with it since. $4.00 bottle of oil verses a new tractor is worth a try.
