Question and Answers

Q:

Removal of nut securing lawn mower balde 917.388382

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
The bolts holding the blades in Craftsman push mowers use a standard right hand thread. Turn it counterclockwise to loosen the bolt. 
The easiest thing to do is to block off the blade with a 4 X 4 and then if needed, spray some penetrating oil onto the bolt to help break it. A leverage bar on the ratchet may help if it's excessively stubborn. 
Hope this helps out and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

There really are no step by step instructions for this. The door mounts onto a bracket, if you take the bracket off and then put it back once you have the door secured to it things will likely go slightly smoother.

I have attached a photo of a chute connected to the bracket with the spring in place. Basically you have to start the mounting pin and get it about half way through then use a screwdriver to turn the spring leg (to tension it) and then push the pin the rest of the way through.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Thanks anyway. The manual cost is $6 and change. I'm not going to pay for one question. You used to be able to download the manual for free. I payed enough money for the mower. Guess nothing is for free anymore. Again, thanks.......

The oil types that are recommended for your lawn mower are the following:

SAE 5W-30 (below 32 degrees)

Oil capacity: 20 oz

To load a manual:

  1. Click the "Manuals" tab located at the top of most every page.
  2. Enter your product model number
  3. Click "Search"
  4. Click the title of the product to load a manual, or click "View Manual"

If you're having trouble loading the manual the first thing you want to make sure of is that you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed in your computer.

If you are using Internet Explorer 9, the manual will not load as the browser is not compatible with our site. Another suggestion that may help is to download Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.
