Question and Answers

Q:

Engine turn over - Craftsman Tractor model #917287242 917287242 Craftsman Tractor

A:

If anyone needs to know. Because the clutch cable was broken and the tension was no longer in place, a sensor that will not allow the motor to start if the mower blades are engaged was activated. So I replace the clutch cable and all is good.

A:

After the clutch cable your blades where still possibly engaged, the engine will not crank back up because the safety switch is still depressed keeping the engine from turning over. Verify that your blades are still engaged and if so you will be able to backoff the safety switch allowing the engine to turnover.

Q:

Lawn mower shuts down 917-287242

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

When an engine has to run on choke or it dies, it's usually indicative of an internal carburetor blockage and it will likely need to be pulled from the engine and a thorough cleaning done on it. 

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