Q:

won't run 917370534 Craftsman Mower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

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

The most common issue that would cause this symptom is a dirty carburetor. I would recommend a thorough cleaning first to see if that improves the condition.

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.

Q:

How to remove the debris cover on this lawn mower. I have a new belt and can't figure out how to remove the debris cover to replac the belt. 917370534 Craftsman Mower

A:

Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com, and for being a valued member. 
First, disconnect the sparkplug wire. Then tip the mower on to its side. When tipping the mower, make sure the air filter is up. Use a straight blade screwdriver to remove and grass around the screw securing the debris shield on the underside of the deck. Remove that screw, and then look at the top of the deck near the back, and there may be an addition one or two more smaller screws holding the debris shield in place. 
I hope this helps, and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
