Question and Answers

Q:

When attempting to start the mower, it blows the 20 amp fuse. please advise ASAP. Thank you 917271810 Craftsman Lawn tractor

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Craftsman Tractor, Model: 917.271810. From reviewing the detail on your model, if you turn the key to the run position and a 20 amp fuse is blowing you have a short to ground. Somewhere in your wiring you are going directly to ground. I would begin checking everything carefully right from the battery on back till you find the problem. Check anywhere where wires run beside, under, or on top of any sharp metal piece, for a bare spot, then if you find one, tape it up. Also, check the place where the battery "minus" or black cable goes to ground, to see if the connection is rusty or loose. Check where the wires come out from under the flywheel cover might be a bare wire there. Where the headlight wires plug together near the hood hinges and make sure the battery connections are tight.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the tractor to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

 

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Q:

Cutting deck wheels 917271810 Craftsman Lawn tractor

A:

Hi, thanks for asking a question about your tractor mower deck. The original deck had two adjustable front wheels. Additional rear wheels and a nose roller were available as accessories. I believe the roller for the middle of the front of the deck is still available from PartsDirect #24297, as is the owners manual and parts diagrams.
