Question and Answers

Q:

Replacement drive belts (part no. 37x118MA) for mower model 536.885600 are too short as compared to the original drive belts labeled Gates Hi Power 10x450.

A:

The belt not fitting can be very frustrating. I did some research on your model number and part number but was not able to find a solution. Your expert will be able to help answer your question. It may take two business days for your expert to reply. I do hope that everything works out on the mower.

Have the belts been changed on this before? I've never seen a Gates belt come new on a mower. Not in 20 years of doing this have I seen that before.

I show the same part numbers for the belts that you do. I'm going to contact the manufacturer and see if they can give us some clarification on this.

I will post back what I find out from them on this and we'll see what we can do to get this working.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

Can I get a bagger for my Craftsman model 536.885600 side discharge mower?

A:

I'm sorry this particular model mower does not have an optional grass catching bag. The mower does allow you to choose between mulching and side discharge, see the image below, but does not have an optional grass catcher.

The actual answer was YES it was an option but it was ordered via parts system. I have the same mower WITH the bagger. Im searching for a replacement bag which i why i stumbled on this old post. So the expert answer is wrong.

I have this lawn mower (model # 536.885600). I purchased the optional grass catcher (model # 536330600). The grass catcher has its own manual which can be found here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/22764/536330600-Craftsman-Parts-GRASS+BAGGER-manual?pathRender=fromManualTabPage The grass bag itself is part # 1101490

In your face, Fred M! I guess you should re-think your "expert" status.

Q:

Diagnose lawn mower problem 536.885600

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. I regret to hear that you are having issues with your mower and do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number 536.885600 and gasoline leaks out of the primer hole because the needle on the float inside the carburetor is not stopping the flow of gasoline into the float bowl. The bowl overfills with gasoline and the fuel goes up into the carburetor and probably into the oil as well. Check the oil before running the engine and if there is fuel in the oil, change the oil. 

The problem is usually caused by debris from the fuel line between the fuel tank and the carburetor getting into the seat in the carburetor where the needle valve on the float assembly stops the flow of fuel into the carburetor.

You can probably repair the problem by removing the carburetor from the engine. Remove the fuel bowl on the bottom of the carburetor and clean the debris from the seat. Replace the fuel line from the fuel tank to the carburetor. The debris usually comes from the deteriorating fuel line. If you have further questions please resubmit your question for further information.
