Question and Answers

Q:

Mulch kit plug does not fit 917280330 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the mulch kit. I know how frustrating that is.

Unfortunately, you were sold an incorrect mulch kit for the tractor. The kit 19A30013799 is used for 247 (MTD) starting Craftsman tractors, and for your 917 (Husqvarna) tractor, you would need part number 33046, which is model specific. 

I would recommend contacting Customer Care at 1-800-469-4663 to return the incorrect kit and have the correct one sent out.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

Engine sputters 917280330 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you’re having with the tractor engine. I know how frustrating that is.

I suspect that the carburetor is dirty and you may have a partially blocked fuel jet, which is why it sputters while under load of the blades being engaged. I would recommend thoroughly cleaning the carburetor first.

I would pull the carb from the engine. With a full can of carb cleaner, a wire brush, and a bread tie wire to poke through and clean the main jet; I would recommend a very thorough cleaning. Start by taking off the float bowl. Douse it very liberally with carb cleaner, and undo the pin for the float, and remove the needle and float. Clean them very thoroughly with the wire brush and carb cleaner. Pay close attention to the seat the needle sits in and clean it well. Once clean, start brushing the carb bowl and body and make sure you get all the varnish out. It may take three or four brushings with carb cleaner dousing in-between. From there, take the straw of the carb cleaner and shoot carb cleaner through any little hole or passageway of the carb. Shoot out the throat of the carb and poke the main jet with the bread tie wire. You have to make sure you get everything the first time, if you leave anything behind, it’s likely to reclog once you have it reassembled. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
