Q:

Leaking gas cap 247374320 Craftsman Mower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issues you've had with the Kohler engine's fuel cap. I know how inconvenient that is to have happen.

I don't see any issue with the fuel cap from the manufacturer. I've seen instances where the fuel caps can warp slightly from heat or direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, which would make them difficult to take off or thread on. It's hard to say where the issue is stemming from, but I believe a replacement fuel cap will solve the issue for you.

For convenience, I have linked a replacement cap for the engine below. Just click the link to be directed to the Sears Parts site to purchase when needed.

Fuel Cap for Kohler PH-XT675-2044

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

A relative that owns this same model has this issue, leaking from the filler cap with the cap fully locked in place. Inspection of the filler neck opening found that it is oval in shape, and not round. This was confirnpmed by measurements. The oval shape makes it very difficult to get the gas cap on, and the oval shape also means the rubber gasket in the cap won't completely seal with the filler neck. This is where the gas is leaking from. The oval shape of the fuel tank filler neck is probably due to a problem during the moulding of the fuel tank. Leaking gasoline is a serious safety issue that needs to be fixed. I'd like to find out if it is possible to get a new tank to replace the defective one.

I can confirm the warping of the fill mouth of the gas tank. This is my third season with my Craftsman (Kohler Courage) mower and the gas now flows quite visibly down from the gas cap during mowing. The cap itself had become increasingly difficult to put on and upon inspection, the cap and o-ring are in great shape, but the mouth of the tank opening is visibly warped into an oval, so much so that the cap o-ring no longer mates to the mouth surface for a good seal. My neighbor purchased the identical mower on my recommendation and upon asking, his has also begun to leak gas from the cap!! I expect Sears/Kohler will rectify this annoying and dangerous manufacturer defect. Please respond as to what steps should be taken and thanks in advance.

Follow up: Jeff had mentioned warping due to heat and long periods in the sun. My mower comes out to mow my 1/4 acre of grass about once a week during our very short, very mild NY summers and then it goes immediately into the garage again. It is stored in the basement during the winter. The engine oil is replaced every season and has never run low. I cannot imagine how temperature would be a factor in my case.

I am also having this problem my mower also has a noticeable oval shaped opening where the cap goes on which clearly as mentioned by Doug will not allow the undamaged o-ring to seal properly and living in this mountainous region where I have hills throughout my yard I continually lose large amounts of fuel out of my mower. This issue needs addressed immediately because we're just getting into summer and as the temperature rises the risk of an accidental fire/explosion resulting in injury and or death is more probable. Not to mention the EPA's take on the matter of fuel dripping off the mower into the environment where the owner does'nt notice the issue and it isn't taken care of. This matter needs taken care of immediately.

I have the same problem. The gas cap leaks AND it has become very difficult to replace the cap. It appears the gas tank opening is warped. This is a fire hazard and pollutes the environment. My mower is less than 2 years old.

I have the exact same condition. There needs to be a recall. The defective tank opening is warped into an oval shape and can't seal the fuel. My mower is just over a year old. My last Craftsman with Tecumseh engine never leaked fuel. It still had its original plastic cap and tank. It lasted more than twenty years. It guess wasn't allergic to sunlight. I am gonna try to obtain warranty service or replacement.

I, too, have the same problem. I thought it was just me. I purchased the mower in April, 2013. It came with a Kohler Courage XT 6.75 149cc engine. At first, the gas cap leaked a bit, but now, at times, the fuel is streaming out. Obviously, this is not safe. Has anyone had a success in getting either Sears or Kohler to address this issue?

Q:

dryer wont start medb200vq0

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your dryer. Upon researching model medb200vq0; it sounds like the electronic control board may need to be replaced. The electronic control board governs the function of the dryer so when it fails it can cause the dryer not to start and to become unresponsive. I have posted a link of the electronic control board to view the link click here.

I trust this information will help you, we appreciate your business thank for choosing Sears.

carlos... thanks for the thought...i already replaced the ctl board does the same thing working on replacing the user interface...this is so disturbing in parts pricing when the tech sheet tells me to change the board at $200 plus dollars and now the u/i at $200 plus dollars well thought out strategy by our friends at whirlpool less than 5 years old

Ron, Did you ever resolve this issue with the MDEB200VQ0 dryer not starting? I am having the identical experience and saw your post just before I was about to also order a new User interface board. I think now we will just get a new dryer and never purchase whirlpool / Maytag again. As you point out these machines are barely 5 years old and being unable to repair them even with the time and ability is a deal killer...

I have been there and if I replaced the transaxle with all the parts listed it would cost more than what I paid for the mower. I really don't want to do the work and was looking to see what it would cost me to have them come out and repair it. We used to have a repair center here, but now they only repair small mowers. If it costs too much I am not going to take a chance with another one but will check consumer reports and check out their recommendations. Thank you for the response....

I have been browsing and saw where one person said that a tech from Sears said that they do not repair the transaxle. They will only replace it. Mine is the same as his the DANA D6800-1.

A:

I have a feeling your local repair shop is mistaking something. This transmission has been used in Craftsman tractors for many years and they are almost trouble free. What happened with yours sounds like a bit of an odd problem but how you described it does make sense. I have seen the chain get caught and come through the case before, so it’s not unheard of; just not common at all.

The price of the transmission is going to be around $350-$400 (pt number: 402723). We do not deal with labor where I work so I cannot even begin to guess at what labor would run. The same would be said for repairing it. We just don’t deal with things on that end so I cannot be of service to you in that way.

I’m really sorry this happened right after your warranty period ended. If there is anything we can do for you on our end, we certainly will.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Thank You Very Much for the information you provided. I will check the part number and probably order one and install it myself. it looks as if it would be easy to install the entire transaxle if it already comes in a complete package.....

If you replace the transaxle I would replace it with the peerless 206-545C transaxle . It has better parts availability . The price of it $228.39 part number 794691 . You will also need part number 197857 shift arm to convert to the peerless transaxle ($2.16) . Also you may need 2 spacers 137057 ($2.91 each) but these spacers are not needed and can be made from 3/4 inch pvc pipe .

I should have been clearer about the spacers , they go around the axle shaft between the wheel and the transaxle case and keep grass etc from winding around the axle . The d6800 has a longer case that goes all the way to the wheel so no spacers are used.
