Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

My manual for Craftsman mower model 917.374363 says to turn mower on side with air filter and carburetor DOWN when removing the drive belt. Is this an error? Contradicts everything else I've read.

How does the belt go on a Craftsman FS5500


Step 1

Consult your owner's manual to get the proper part number for the drive belt needed for your particular lawn mower model and purchase it.
Step 2

Turn your lawn mower on its side or put your riding mower up on blocks so you can get to the underside of your mower's deck.
Step 3

Clean the underside of your deck. This can most easily be accomplished by carefully scraping the underside of the deck with a long handled flat blade screwdriver. Remove any pieces of drive belt that are still attached to the pulleys that are visible.
Step 4

Locate the tensioner. This is a pulley that can move when it is loosened. Use your ratchet to loosen the bolt holding the tensioner in place. Allow the tensioner to move closer to the other pulleys.
Step 5

Check your owner's manual for the proper way to position your drive belt over the pulleys. On most models the drive belt simply goes around the drive pulley, the tensioner and the pulley connected to the blades, but some models are slightly different.
Step 6

Pull the tensioner tight until there is less than 1/2 inch of play in the drive belt when you push on it between pulleys. Tighten the bolt holding the tensioner in place once the belt is as tight as the owner's manual suggests.

Hi r s jensen

Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

Where is the carburetor on the Craftsman 675 Series 190cc 22" cut self-propelled lawn mower?


The carburetor would be located BEHIND the air filter housing and air inlet tube. The air filter housing should have a removable (by screw or clip) cover.

check the linkage for the governor, maybe on the wrong side,when off it should be pushing the throttle wide open, the governor brings it down after start up!

What is the easiest way to remove the deck to change mower belt.


Your listing doesn't specify the model number of your tractor. But I found a users manual for a 24HP model 917.28936 here and perhaps this is yours, or similar.
This model uses a single mower drive belt (some tractors use two separate ones) and you do have to remove the mower deck to replace the belt. The procedure is in the manual. Hope that helps.

Where is the air filter on Craftsman Model 917377660 lawn mower


If you have a briggs or a tecumsen it is mounted on the side mounted on the top side of the carburator, one is a round cylindrical filter with a steel or plastic mesh surrounding and the other is a rather flat 3"X5" filter also mounted under a single center screw and cover.The third type is an oil bath type sponge filter, mounted directly on top of the carburetor on the side of the engine, you replace the sponge and clean out the metal housing held down with one long screw through its top center.

Engine cutting off


Depends on how it cuts off. If it gradually slows down over a few minutes or surges, it's likely the carburetor needs to be cleaned and rebuilt. But if it's an immediate cut off, it's likely to be a safety switch such as the one that shuts down the engine when you get off the seat if the mower is running. Sometimes this happens frequently to a light person who bounces on the seat when mowing.
