Question and Answers

Q:

After fire solenoid on lawn tractor, model 917.257651 917257651 Craftsman Improved rocker arm and pivot-lawn tractors

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you’re having with the tractor. I know how frustrating that is.

If the solenoid is working, you should feel or hear it click when you turn the key. Have someone turn the key on and off a few times as you feel and listen to the solenoid. When energized, the coil inside should pull down a pin to allow the fuel to go up the main jet. If you do not feel or here the solenoid, you need to check for 12 VDC. Remove the wire from the solenoid and test from that wire to the engine block. You should have at least 12 volts. If the voltage is present and the solenoid doesn’t retract, the solenoid needs to be replaced. I don’t suspect this as the issue though as it does start initially.

Regardless if the solenoid is working or not the carburetor float bowl should be full of fuel. If the float bowl were empty, the problem would be a fuel cap vent, fuel filter, fuel line, or the needle and seat in the carburetor. To check the fuel going to the carburetor you can remove the solenoid and the float bowl. The fuel should run out when the float is down and stop when the float is lifted. You may need to clean, rebuild, or replace the carburetor.
