Q:

I need a manual or directions to repair the transmission on my 917.294482 Rear Tine Tiller

A:

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with the tiller. If the wheels will not turn, I recommend looking at the shifter shaft where it goes into the transmission. You want to make sure the shaft turns when you move the shifter. If the shaft is turning the problem is in the transmission. I am sorry the manufacturer does not have a repair manual for repairing the transmission. We usually just replace the complete transmission because the labor cost to take it apart and clean all the parts comes close to the cost of replacing the transmission. If you choose to take the transmission apart, I recommend taking pictures as you go. They will come in handy when you go to put it back together. Once you are ready to split the case, lay it on a workbench and remove the screws. Then gently pry the case apart making sure all the parts stay in the lower half. As soon as you remove the case, half take some pictures of all the gear and how they are assembled in the case. Then make sure to lay the parts out in the order you remove them. Once you determine the problem the replacement parts can be ordered from the following link. Replacement parts for Craftsman tiller model 917.294482.  I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.  Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.

Q:

Do I have a weak solenoid if it measures 1290 ohms?

A:

If you are finding the glow bar ignitor glowing red and then fading off without any burner ignition will indicate a weak solenoid coil and I recommend replacing both at the same time, use part#279834 (coil kit) which will include both coils. The reading could be slightly off if you do not zero out the ohm meter and temperature of the coils can cause a variance in the resistance reading too. To zero out your ohm meter, touch the two meter leads together and adjust the needle so it shows Zero ohms. I added some additional information and troubleshooting test in the image below. I believe you can diagnose the failure with the added information I added below.
