LT2000 Lawn mower shuts off after it gets hot 917.273758


Thanks for the inquiry and for using
I am sorry to hear of the issue your having with the engine when it gets hot and shuts off, I know how frustrating that is to have occur.
Most likely this problem will be caused by a failing ignition coil. When the engine shuts down, immediately remove the spark plug and check for spark. To check for spark, remove the spark plug and then plug it back into the lead. Use insulated pliers to hold the threaded base of the plug against the head/block of the engine. While you hold the plug against the block, turn the key (as if to start) and watch the tip of the spark plug for spark. If there is no spark then the coil is failing and will need to be replaced. If there is spark then you will almost certainly be looking for a fueling problem (most likely carburetor).
Hopefully this helps you identify the source of issue, and thanks for using We appreciate your business.

Check Transaxle fluid lever 206-545C Peerless Transaxle


Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly assist you in locating the transaxel oil plug. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found the location of the oil drain plug.  Click here to view the diagram of the drain plug which is key number 85.  

To drain the oil from the transaxle, you will have to remove the transaxle from the tractor. Turn the transaxle upside down and pour the oil out of the oil fill hole.
Let me know if this helps.
