Why doesn't craftsman mower tractor yt 3000 charge?


If the battery is below around 11.8 volts it never will charge. The charging systems on these mowers are made to "maintain" the charge. Check the battery, if below 11.8 volts charge the battery with a battery charger. Then see if the mower will maintain the level. If not, you may have a bad battery. Your local automotive store can check it for you.

How should you winterize a lawn tractor in the northeast?


I pour seafoam into gas tank & run it for a short time. Then I remove the battery & take it into the house & put it in the basement by the furnace on a piece of wood, do not put battery directly onto concrete floor, it will drain power, I have had the same battery for approx 7 years now.

Wont start


Your battery is junk. Replace it.
Lead/acid batteries lose about 1% of their charge per day, so in 90 days of non-charging they are basically discharged. This is a bad thing. When winter comes, put a smart trickle charger on it, or at least once a month put a non-smart trickle charger on it for a couple hours or an afternoon so you keep it charged up.
I love/hate batteries.
