Thank you for contacting ManageMyLife.com regarding the location of the fuse on your PYT9000 lawn tractor. I see Henry provided you with some excellent information. Without a complete model number, I'm only able to provide you with general information.

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.

I really hope this information helps you today. For further assistance, please respond to this thread with the complete model number of the tractor. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

My model number is 247.28980. The fuse may be in a connector under the hood near the starter. I can not figure our how to disconnect it to get at the fuse.

Thanks for the picture. Is there a part number for the fuse or is it a stardard automotive type fuse available at an autoparts store?

I checked the fuse. It was ok but I replaced anyway. Tractor still won't start. Could there be a microswitch on the brake pedal that has been moved when the tractor stalled. If so where is the switch?

Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having this problem with the tractor. First, make sure the engagement lever is down or the PTO button is pushed in and the brake pedal is fully depressed or the tractor will not attempt to turn over. If you have already done this, I recommend checking the fuse. The fuse is located behind the dash. If the fuse is good, you have a wiring or switch problem. The easiest way to pin point the problem is with a volt meter. If you do not have a meter, you can purchase one relatively cheap. Turn the meter to check dc volts, and then hold the black lead to the black negative battery terminal for all of the voltage checks. Place the red lead on the positive terminal of the battery. The reading should be 12 volts. If you have a 12 volt reading, move the red lead to the first blue dot in the image. Your reading should be 12 volts. If you have 12 volts, have someone sit on the tractor and hold the brake pedal while turning the key for the rest of the checks. While they have the key turned to the start position, move the red lead to the next blue dot. The reading should always be 12 volts. Then move to the next blue dot. If you lose the 12 volts, the problem is between the last blue dot you had the voltage and where you lost the voltage. If you have 12 volts all the way to the white wire on the solenoid, the solenoid or the starter is defective. To determine starter or solenoid short the two large posts on the solenoid together with a screwdriver. There should be a spark it is normal. Once shorted the starter should run. If the tractor still will not run once you get the starting issue fixed, please let me know. I will be happy to assist you with diagnosing that. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.

Mark T; Thanks got the tractor started. The PTO button was not pushed in. I guess I am a real newbie. My tale may bring a smile. I was mowing a bush in my pasture when the tractor stopped. When It would restart I though some else had happen so I lifted the hood to find the engine covered with oil from the fill plug which I had not securely fastened. I thought that was the problem that I had lost the all the oil so I towed the tractor in and consulted the manual which said that the tractor would start if the fuse had blown. I know how ton get at the fuse on this tractor now. It is located under the seat. I took the battery out and the support tray and that gave me complete access to the fuse and solenoid. Thanks again

jon, I am glad to hear you have the tractor up and running again. Do not worry you are not the first customer that had this problem. It is more common than you think. I recommend saving this link. It might be helpful if the tractor ever fails to turn over again. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.

Q:

Hard start PYT9000 Craftsman Tractor

Q:

Won't engage transmission- no forward or reverse PYT9000 Craftsman Tractor

A:

The smart thing to do to find out exactly whats going on is to place the tractor on jackstands or a ramp (make sure you have the break ingaged and wheel chocks if using a ramp). First make sure that the idler pulley (tensioner) is free to turn. Have someone sit in the seat and without starting the engine, engage the forward/reverse pedal. Check the tension on the belt (with the pedal all the way down the belt should be tight to a point) you can watch the tensioner as it's engaged. The tensioner is spring loaded and attached to a bracket which is actuated by the foot pedal rod.

The only foot pedal the PYT 9000 has is the brake. Do you mean the shift lever that changes it from FWD and Reverse? At this time, without having checked the idler pulley, the belt is extremely loose. When we move the FWD/RVRS lever, nothing is moving or engaging the pulleys or tightening the belt. This does not seem like a belt issue but a tensioner issue???

Thank you for choosing searspartsdirect.com. Let me look at the information and see if we can find something. Over time the belt will get worn down and stretched out. It probably isn’t anything but a bad belt. I recommend replacing the belt and that should resolve your issue. Hope this information as helped. Aging, thank you for choosing SearsPartssDirect.com.
