Craftsman model #917272072 stalls after warming up. 917272072 Craftsman Lawn tractor

A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com. I regret to hear that you are having issues with your mower and do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. Im looking at your model number 917272072 and engine model CV490-27508 and from what you are describing it seems like the ignition module is going bad, I symptom of a bad module is that it will stall or die when the mower is warm/hot. Check the spark on the module.

A:

The module is usually located in the front of the mower. It is the piece the spark plug connects to and you should be able to see a black rubber boot. If you have further questions please let me know. Thanks for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com

Q:

start 917272072 Craftsman Lawn tractor

A:

I have attached a diagram of the start circuit. You'll need to get your meter and check everything, starting at the fuse and work your way through the system checking everything in the diagram along the way. Checking for ohms at the starter switch isn't going to tell us a whole lot as the system is set up for voltage transfer rather than resistance.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
