Question and Answers

Q:

I keep blowing in inline fuse on my riding mower! 536270300 Craftsman Tractor, lawn

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member. 

This is likely due to a problem with the charging system on your engine. If your engine has a regulator, unplug the red wire at the regulator and then see if the fuse still blows. If the fuse still blows there is something going on with the harness on the tractor, most likely. If the fuse does not blow then the problem is with the charging system (what I suspect. At that point, check the AC voltage coming into the regulator (2 matching wires). There should be about 28-35VAC on them at full throttle. If that voltage is there then check the red wire for 12-14VDC at full throttle. If one of those voltages is not there or is out of those parameters then the component is bad. This is often caused by a failed alternator coil so if the AC voltage is not there then the alternator is bad. If the AC voltage is there then the problem is going to be with the regulator. I'll also mention that it could be both. It's not often that both are bad but it does happen in some instances.

If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-349-5071, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.

Q:

Bagger for Craftsman 536.270300 30" mower?

A:

Hopefully an expert can sort this issue out for you. I don't have a clue as to why a 42 inch mower - Model No. - 917.248970 Bagger was recommended. For a 30" Mower / Mulcher Model 536.270300 - - This will need to be verified by an expert - - I believe that the bagger for your mower is - 536. 249810 - Grass Bagger - Rear Mount for 30" Rear Engine Rider - The secondary market may be your only option.

Sorry, I'm making Sears look stupid when it's not their fault this time. The first bagger I posted was the first bagger they recommended and you are right, it didn't make sense why they would tell me that one, given the size. The second one they recommended was the one that I tried to install; Craftsman model 24035.

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com and allowing us to help you. The fuel pump works from the vacuum developed inside the crankcase from piston motion. There is a crankcase breather with a reed valve mounted on the side of the engine that is supposed to allow the crank case to vent pressure out and not in. If this breather is stopped up or if the reed valve is stuck or damaged this will cause crank case pressure to build up and blow oil out the lines connected to the fuel pump and could cause the fuel pump to leak oil and fail. I recommend removing the crank case breather, clean and replace the reed  as shown in the image below.

If you have any follow-up questions, please continue our conversation on this existing thread.

Thanks again for choosing ManageMyLife.com

We tried to order parts reference no 1263 and 1264. Could not find them in our operators manual and the part people at the warehouse part store could not find it either. Did you mean to just clean it and put it back on. Which we have already done. We could find the ref no 9, 10, and 11 but not 1263 and 1264. We also put a new head gasket on. Any other ideas????

Thanks Emil for this additional information. I suspect gas is leaking into the oil causing the oil level to rise. The carburetor is leaking some gas into the oil after the engine has shut off. A soggy carburetor float or the carburetor diaphram may be the culprit here. If you find this to be the case, I recommend rebuilding the carburetor. The excessive oil is what is getting into the air breather.
