I know that it can be very frustrating to have problems with you lawn tractor. The fuse is located under the hood of your lawn tractor. Lift the hood. Under the fuel tank on the right hand side, at the end of the ignition harness, you will see two red wires. At the end of these two wires, you will find the fuse. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

I have a Craftsman lawn tractor model 917288341 with a 21 HP Kohler engine. Why does it backfire when the engine is shut off?

A:

The carburetor on your engine has an after fire solenoid on it. This solenoid shuts the flow of fuel off to the carburetor when the ignition switch is turned off. The purpose of the solenoid is to prevent the engine from drawing fuel through the carburetor as it winds down.

If fuel is drawn through the carburetor as the engine is winding down, it is discharged into a hot muffler and can cause a backfire.

You should set the engine at 1/2 throttle for 1-2 minutes before turning the engine off.

The after fire solenoid is probably gummed up from the fuel and is slow to close. You can check and repair this by disconnecting the fuel line from the carburetor. Unscrew the after fire solenoid and remove it. Some fuel will leak out as you remove the solenoid.

Press the plunger on the solenoid in and let it spring out. If it is slow, clean the plunger and the carb bowl with carburetor cleaner and reinstall the bowl and solenoid.
