Question and Answers

Q:

engine cuts out 917272010 Craftsman Lawn tractor

Q:

Craftsman tractor 917.272010 dies when clutch/brake released.

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. The seat switch connector on your tractor should have a small spring inside that will short the wires if it is not pushed on all the way. I posted a few images below that show the connector and how to ensure it is fully seated. Just click on the images to enlarge them. If this does not cure the problem I recommend cutting, the wires going to the seat switch about two inches back. Then tape each wire so they cannot touch each other. Once you have them taped, carefully check the operation of the tractor. If the tractor works, the problem is in the seat switch or the connector. Be sure to replace the switch or connector before you use the tractor. Using the tractor with the wire cut could lead to serious injury or death. Cutting the wire is for test purposes only.

The parts can be ordered from the following link.

MARK: Thank you for the response. I replaced the relay in the harness below the battery and the tractor is now operating fine. I do not think your solution would have solved the problem. Bill
