Q:

Need help - mower starts intermittently, but runs fine after it does 917270710 Craftsman Lawn tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

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

You have ruled out all the preliminary checks, and I tend to suspect the ignition switch over the starter. If the starter was at fault, you would still hear the solenoid clicks, you would still have juice, and it just doesn't match the symptoms. The ignition switch contacts are probably defective and isn't allowing the circuit to complete. However, the starter motor part number is 795121. You could pull the starter and take it to an automotive store and have it tested. That is usually a free service they provide. 

I was able to find the wiring diagram and power circuit in a clearer version and have pasted them below. 




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

Thanks Jeff. The starter/ignition switch makes sense to me. The back of the switch where the connector plugs in is discolored and charred looking. I'm going to go ahead and order a replacement ignition switch, as well as a seat switch, since those are prone to wearing out (and the flat rate shipping won't increase). Thanks for your help.
