Fuse Location on Craftsman Lawn Tractor Model No. 917.280084.

Craftsman Lawn Tractor 54 inch electric start auto transmission: Model No. 917.280084. Our Craftsman Lawn Tractor does not start, turn-over or anything. We were told it could be the fuse, however it appears no one REALLY knows where it is located on this specific model. We have been given the wrong advice when we call in. I hope you can help, as our lawn keeps growing as we talk. We just purchased it last August so have only cut our lawn this year a few times. Please HELP!!!

the manual says its there, but we are not able to locate it. we are going to actually stop at the sears store and hopefully they will have our model to physically show us, as the manual does not provide the assistance we need. it must be well hidden. thank you for your prompt help; it wasn't what we needed, as we have talked to others saying the same thing, but you did try. thank you for that. i am anxious to actually find out where it is, and how come he was not able to find it? thanks again.

the schematic can be viewed at parts direct. you may want to refer to it

trace the red wire from the solenoid back.

the small red wire from the solenoid, not the large red wire.

thank you, this information has been helpful. he did find the location of the fuse. since then he put one in two times - it blows-out briefly after start-up. when it blew the first time we had just started it and drove a few yards and all of a sudden for no apparent reason the lawn mower stopped. ever since have been trying to find the reason for it stopping. we did narrow it down to the fuse. but, like i said, it has been repeating to blow-out after starting up briefly. the book says to use a 30 amp, however there was a 20 amp in the mower, and the parts guy said to use a 20 amp. we now need advice on as to why the fuse would be blowing out briefly after start up. any suggestion you can give would be appreciated. ps. i believe we started another post on this forum with the same question. thank you for any help.

thank you for choosing managemylife.com and allowing us to help you. if you can jump cross the starter solenoid and the mower will start but when you turn the key off the tractor will not shut off. if this is the case, it might be just a loose wire connection. i recommend the checking the wire connections on the ignition switch.the fuse is locate behind the dash of your tractor. the part number is #26 and can be viewed at the searspartsdirect website. click here to view your craftsman product and that part location. click here to down load your owner's manual in pdf formt so you can have it handy on your computer for future reference. page 30 covers information about the fuse. my last link has some great information about your product and some excellent videos provided by managemylif.com. click here to view this web page of information.

if you have any follow-up questions, please continue our conversation on this existing thread.

thanks again for choosing managemylife.com
