Question and Answers

Q:

Clutch slipping 917.273403

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your lawn mower. Upon researching model 917272673; while driving the tractor, put your foot behind the clutch/brake and pull back on it. If the drive gets better when you pull back on the pedal then the problem will very likely be a worn out belt or something stopping the linkage (which will keep the belt loose), maybe some grass clippings or something piled up. If you lower the deck you should be able to see the clutch linkage when you move the pedal up/down. Make sure nothing is built up anywhere near the linkage or pedal as this can cause the pedal to not come back as far as it needs to for the belt to get tight.

I trust this information will help you, we appreciate your business thank for choosing Sears.

Q:

Lost reverse 917273403 Craftsman Lawn tractor

A:

You can try purging the air from the transmission or checking the drive belts if you have not already done that. The owner's manual has information on that type of troubleshooting.

Since the tractor goes forward, it is likely that you have a failure in the transaxle if the above troubleshooting does not help. Replacing or repairing the transaxle will probably be necessary to fix this problem.
