 Thanks for contacting manage my life about your tractor model 917272160. I will be glad to assist you. Based on the description provided I suggest that you unplug the wire harness from the back of the PTO switch, if this stops the PTO you have a defective switch (or wrong switch). If the PTO continues then check the wires for being grounded together.  If this is not the issue you can adjust the clutch per image below. Should you need additional assistance please reply with added details and I will be happy to reply.  Ron H.

Q:

My Craftsman model 917.272160 tractor choke stuck. The manual is not detailed enough. I want help replacing the blade too.

A:

When the choke knob won't move, the choke cable is usually rusted. Raise the hood on the tractor and locate the choke cable. Spray the choke cable liberally with WD40 from one end to the other. Tap the cable with a screwdriver handle from one end to the other.

When you can move the choke knob, spray the cable again and move the choke knob in and out 5-6 times to distribute the WD40. You should spray the choke cable once a year for preventative measures.

To replace the mower blades, you need to remove the mower deck from the lawn mower. I am sending you the instructions for removing the deck in an image.

These instructions are in the owners manual. You can get an owners manual for your tractor at [www.managemylife.com].
