Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your lawn mower. Upon researching model917288140; normally, the fuse will be located behind the dash. Sometimes it will be located in a black box and sometimes it will just hang under the dash. If it is not there and the battery is under the seat, the fuse could be under the rear fender. You can also follow the red thin wire from the ignition switch to the solenoid to lead you to

a black fuse holder that has the fuse in it.
