Question and Answers

Q:

Mower doesn't seem to get Spark 917254750

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your lawn mower. Upon researching model 917254750; it sounds like the ignition coil may need to be replaced. The ignition coil allows the spark to be created along with the spark plug so when it fails the unit will not create a spark needed to ignite the unit. I have posted a link of the ignition coil to view the link click here.

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

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the lack of spark on the tractor. I know how frustrating that is.

The tractor has 2 safety switches, one on the clutch/brake shaft and one on the deck engagement lever. These switches, the seat switch, or the seat switch connector can kill the spark from the ignition module. Any of these can be the reason a tractor engine has no spark.

I would start by testing these switches for continuity. I have provided a short video below that will show you how to test them.

Looking at all the information I’m showing that there can be many different issues here. One could be you have a clog you can’t see in the carb. Or maybe something is wrong with the float inside the bowl. I would recommend replacing the carb, and seeing if that solves the issue.

Check on the front of the transmission and see if there is a little cap (usually front left side under the pulley). If there is a cap, take it off and pay attention to anything that may pop out when you do as there is a little spring and ball down in the hole. Make sure the spring and ball are clean. You may need to put some oil down into the hole to free everything up. While the ball and spring are out (magnet on stick to remove) move the shifter around a bit to make sure it will move. If there is not a cap but a screw that holds the ball and spring in, then tighten it up only until the transmission becomes hard to shift.

If there is not a cap or screw on the top for the ball and spring then the transmission will have to be opened up and repaired.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

A:

I got the mower in pieces and cleaned everything up as usual. I took apart the clutch, but the screw that holds the clutch in does not have a spring nor a ball. Its just a screw with a white curved tip on the inside, like a ball would go there. Can't seem to find that ball. If there is a ball there, I just can't get it out with a magnet and I'm using a "super earth" magnet - the smallest and strongest there is. Anyways, even with the screw totally loose/off, there is still that raised box sticking out from the transmission. With the screw off, but the clutch still attached to that gear box, the clutch still wont move. It only budges if I tap it with a hammmer while holding the brake down. It wont budge by hand. So I guess that means I'm opening up the transmission. You guys have any tips for an experienced DIY'er?

Watch the video at the link I've attached below. They have a 2nd part, so make sure to watch it as well. Also, search for "lawn tractor transmission" on Youtube for other videos. You'd be surprised the tid-bits you'll come upon while looking at the videos for this stuff there.
