I have not been able to get my pandigital to work. I read that it may need a new battery. How do I get one?

Q:

My Craftsman Lawn Tractor is slowing down on hills.

A:

When you're having the problem, place your foot behind the clutch/brake pedal and pull back on it. If the problem seems to improve then the issue is most likely the drive belt or the bracket for the idler that pivots when you press the clutch/brake pedal. If that does no good then it may be that the transmission is low on oil. I'll need you to look at the transmission directly to see if there is a brand and model number information on it to determine what oil has to be used to top it off.

Thank you Wade. I have already taken the belt off to examine it and it seems quite worn. I have ordered a new one and am awaiting it's arrival. Hopefully it will be the problem, if not, it wasn't that expensive. My transmission is a K46BT. My owners manual says the following about it. " The transaxle was sealed at the factory and fluid maintenance is not required for the life of the transaxle. Should the transaxle ever leak or require servicing, contact your nearest authorized service centre/department." Is it possible to add fluid to this transmission? Do you require any further info in relation to this part? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

10W30 is the oil used in this transmission. There will be a place to put oil in this on the top or on the side (near the top).

Wade, I write this feeling like a total idiot. I have put everything back together and was feeling cautiously optimistic that the problem would be resolved. Not the case. The tractor does not move one little bit now. I'm fairly handy but apparently not that bright. After having a poor result I looked at my diagram again and realized that I removed the wrong cap on the top of the transaxle, drained what fluid was in there and replaced it with 10W30. The fluid that came out was quite clear and didn't look to be in bad shape. Is this a separate reservoir and have I totally screwed things up? Slightly embarrassed to say the least.

Uh, me again. Further research finds that I needed to purge or bleed the transaxle. Did this, tractor moves but still have the same initial problem. The new belt hasn't arrived yet so I am still running on the old. Still wondering however if I put the oil in the wrong place. You must love guys like me.

I do love guys like you! I wrench on mowers because I like it and if I can help someone work on theirs, I'll certainly do it. I do get paid, but I'd wrench on them (and help others with it) even if there wasn't a check involved.

On top of the transmission there is a little reservoir jug. Usually there will be very little (or none) oil in that unless the machine has been in use for a bit (it's like an overflow). There is a plug on top of the transmission (see photo below). From the plug rim down to the oil, it should measure 1.25-1.5 inches. If you put 10W30 in the transmission, you really need to get that out of there. The transmission needs 20W50 motor oil, and it matters. A lot.

Replace the transmission oil. Try purging to see if anything improves. If it does not, let's see what happens with the new belt in place.

Glad to hear that you enjoy helping the likes of myself. If that is the case, then you won't be bored listening to me and hearing of my antics. After I read your last post I wanted to go right out to the shop and tear the transaxle out of the tractor again and get at it. I got hold of my senses, the best as I can and thought I best check with you again on a few things. First of all, I am attaching a link to the Tuff Torq site that has a diagram of my transaxle. If you view the drawing and note the butterfly type button on the far end, top of the transaxle, that is in fact what I drained and added the fluid from. I also incorrectly advise you that I used 10W30, I in fact used 5W50 as per the instructions in the noted link. https://www.tufftorqservices.com/EnvEEdefault/FlatHTML/TechInfo/ttcoil/pdfs/cc%20K46%20K57%20T40%20MODELS%20WITH%20INTERNAL%20RESERVOIR%20CHECKING%20&%20%20ADDING%20OIL.pdf It would appear that this is a vent cap for the same reservoir however it is possible that I don't have the fluid at the proper level. Please view figure #2 in the next link. https://www.tufftorqservices.com/EnvEEdefault/FlatHTML/TechInfo/ttcoil/pdfs/CAO46TEET.pdf My next step will be in fact to remove the proper cap, check the fluid level and go from there. I will likely use the old belt again after this step as I really want to know just what is causing the problem. Is there a way to purge the transaxle before putting it back in the tractor. I seems that the level of fluid may change after the purging is completed according to the Tuff Torq site. I am unable to check fluid levels once the unit is back in place. One good thing about all of this is I am becoming very intimate with the workings of this tractor. I'm sure that I will be able to remove and re-install the transaxle in a shorter period of time on the next go around. Meanwhile, my grass is growing. Cheers, Mark

I'm glad you mentioned the brand of your transmission. The model number is showing me that it's a hydro-gear.

5W50 is the correct oil for the tuff torq.

I don't generally recommend a customer off to another repair forum, but in this case, I think it's called for and will be beneficial to you. Click the link below and read over the thread there they have dealing with this transmission model. There is a lot of good information there.

To directly answer you about purging: There is not a way to really purge the transmission without it being in place.

Recommended replacement fluid for the K46 is 5W50 synthetic motor oil, 2.2 Liters.

The 2nd link provided from the previous poster (anonymous) gives complete directions for checking the oil and changing it out.
