    I have the exact problem, did the conversion fix it? salmonidsrock@yahoo.com

    I have identical symptoms. Took it to repair service hoping for recall repair. Mine was Type 5 so not covered by recall. Called Black and Decker who said symptoms related to recall were not mine but an overheating problem. Apparently to fix mine need to replace a board which was also the solution to the recall problem. The symptoms almost seem mechanical - plastic key doesn't drop down completely - as opposed to electronic. Why is an electronic board @ $280 needed to fix?



    Any suggestions re next steps.



    Thanks

My craftsman 42" lawn tractor won't shut off.


when you turn off the key you are breaking the power circuit to the coil. If it keeps running then the coil is still getting power. Check for a wire touching the power wire before the switch that runs to the coil

Have a john deere sabre turn key won't start thought battery was dead charged battery still won't start jump start with car battery it will start then . try to engage reverse with blades running it...


Some mowers have a mowing reverse safety switch. That safety will kill the mower if you try to reverse with the deck engaged. Some mowers even have an override button that has to be held while backing up. As for the battery thing, no matter how much you charge a bad battery you will not get it to start a mower if it has a bad cell or two. I would use a multimeter to check battery voltage, but the end result would still be the same, replace the battery.

I hope this gets you going again.

My craftsman mower shuts off every time the blades are engaged. What is the problem?


you most likely have a shorted or open safety switch. you did not mention year or model # so I can only guess what configuration you have, but typically there are the following safety switches on a riding lawn mower: clutch/brake on switch (under floorboard at clutch, this allows you to get off the tractor with engine running if brake is applied), Reverse gear safety switch (will shut engine off if attempting to go in reverse with blades on...follow the gear handle rod down to transmission, may be internal or external of differential), there is also usually a disable switch to allow blade operation in Reverse and this is usually relay operated via a button or turn of the key position, Seat safety switch (under seat and usually is disabled via engaging the clutch/brake switch, this switch will kill the motor if you come off of the seat unless brake is applied), and of course a switch that is tied in to tell when blades are engaged (engage handle or PTO switch). It is actually simpler than it sounds and you dont' need to be an electrician to figure it out. start out with a visual inspection of the switches that you can see. I would suspect the transmission position (reverse) switch first, do you have an override? if so, turn it on and see if engine stays running with blades engaged. hope this helps and here is a link to a company that deals mower parts and has alot of great parts breakdown illustrations online. A craftsman is pretty much the same as a MTD or White Outdoor model, so look those up and it will show you the areas where switches are.

My cmm1000 type 4 lawnmower does not start


Check to see that the starter cable isn't pushed in or out a bit too far and causing the kill switch to engage. It is only held in place by tie wraps and can cause the machine to act as if it can't be charged and/or won't run. Once the cable has been adjusted into the correct position, everything works as expected.

After charging the mower, you must place the safety key in the mower before it will start. On models that have a bail handle, be sure to pull the bail handle back to the mower handle before engaging the start lever. If your mower still does not start, remove the safety key and ensure the bail and start lever are in the "off" position. Then firmly re-insert the safety key, pull the bail handle to the mower handle and engage the start lever.

Note - It is important that the bail and start lever are returned to the "off" position before inserting the safety key.
Give it try, if it still will not operate you may have to take it in for service.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,

Lawnmower Model CMM1000 Batterys will not charge.


All of a sudden mine also acted like it wouldn't take a charge and the needle wouldn't move. The plastic safety key also wouldn't insert smoothly as it used to and I would have to push the start lever before it would drop in. When I checked the charger, it was putting out 24v. When I opened up the lid I noticed that the starter cable was pushing the safety switch incorrectly. If it was moved a bit, the mower would then start. The starter cable is only secured to the handle by tie wraps. So if it gets moved around, it can cause the kill switch to be in the kill position. So now if I have a problem, I just move the cable in or out a bit. Fortunately, this find saved me a trip to the dealer and who knows how much $$$$.
