Question and Answers

Q:

My tractor cuts off while I am mowing. PR1842STB Poulan Lawn tractor

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more then happy to assist you. Next time the engine starts to die, loosen the fuel cap for ten seconds. If the engine smoothes out, I recommend replacing the fuel cap. The fuel cap has a vent that should allow air to replace the used fuel. If the vent is plugged, fuel will eventually stop flowing from the tank. The fuel filter and the fuel pump if your tractor has one could also cause the same issue.  If you are not comfortable doing this repair you can Click Here to schedule a technician or call toll free 1-800-469-4663. Hope this information has help you, any further questions or concerns. You will have to post a new question because at this time I can not reply to any comments. Again, Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com.

A:

The transmission leaking fluid is of great concern because of the not shifting or moving problem. That kind of makes me think that something inside the transmission may have “grenaded” and now it’s seized. The only place where there should be a leak would be at the transmission case halves. If the seal is worn our or the cases have become loose seeing some fluid there would be expected. Fluid on the bottom tells me the case is cracked.

To know for sure you will have to clean off the bottom to inspect it for cracks or holes. You still may not be able to tell and may end up having to take the transmission out to properly diagnose it.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

I need a clearer picture of my tractor deck Poulan model # pr185h42st I broke some pieces

A:

I was not able to find that exact model in our information here, but did find a Poulan PR1842STB.

The image for the deck on that model is in the manual, see image below, and you can actually see that manual online at Manage My Home to confirm if it is similar enough to your model to help or to get other service information that might also apply to your model.

Just use this Owner's Manual link and the model 917279872 and brand POULAN, or follow the instructions in the link below.

If it is still not clear how the deck goes together, feel free to submit another question here with a little more detail, and a Craftsman model number like the one above if possible, and we will do our best to help further.
