Q:

Belt slipping when mower is engaged 917276923 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be happy to help you. Upon researching model 917276923 I found if the belt is slipping it could be a worn pulley. Usually though it is a worn tensioner and spring. Check the pulley to make sure it will spin freely. If not replace pulley. I always recommend for the springs to be replaced with the belt to get the proper tension.

If you have any further questions please re-post. Thank you for choosing Sears have a great day.

I had the same probem in April of 2010 - after sitting for the winter the belt was off and and paid $196 for a sears tech to come our and put it back on - not doing that again!

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having this problem with the tractor. I recommend determining what is causing the engine not to turn over. First, make sure the engagement lever is down or the PTO button is pushed in and the brake pedal is fully depressed or the tractor will not attempt to turn over. If you have already done this, I recommend checking the fuse. The fuse is located between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid. The solenoid has a small red wire coming from it. Follow that red wire toward the ignition switch. The fuse is along that line. If the fuse is good, you have a wiring or switch problem. The easiest way to pin point the problem is with a volt meter. If you do not have a meter, you can purchase one relatively cheap.

Turn the meter to check dc volts, and then hold the black lead to the black negative battery terminal for all of the voltage checks. Place the red lead on the positive terminal of the battery. The reading should be 12 volts. If you have a 12 volt reading, move the red lead to the first blue dot in the image. Your reading should be 12 volts. If you have 12 volts, have someone sit on the tractor and hold the brake pedal while turning the key for the rest of the checks. While they have the key turned to the start position, move the red lead to the next blue dot. The reading should always be 12 volts. Then move to the next blue dot. If you lose the 12 volts, the problem is between the last blue dot you had the voltage and where you lost the voltage. If you have 12 volts all the way to the white wire on the solenoid, the solenoid or the starter is defective.

To determine starter or solenoid short the two large posts on the solenoid together with a screwdriver. There should be a spark it is normal. Once shorted the starter should run.

If the tractor still will not run once you get the starting issue fixed, please let me know. I will be happy to assist you with diagnosing that.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
