Question and Answers

Q:

I need to diagnose the drive problem in a Craftsman 247-770990 yard machine.

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the lawn vac. I will be happy to assist you with this problem. Usually when the drive does not work and you cannot move the shifter it is because the belt is off. I recommend checking the drive belt first. I posted an image below that shows how to access the drive belt. Click on the image to enlarge it. Once you have the cover off, start the engine, and engage the drive. You should see the belt tighten and turn the pulley. If it does not do this, you have to find where it is broke. The image shows how to access and check the parts.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know what you find.

Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.

Q:

Part that hooks to harness 629-0920A? 247770990 Craftsman Yard vacuum

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the lawn vacuum. I looked up the model number you submitted. The wire connector you are looking for only comes as part of a harness. If the only problem is the connector is missing I recommend picking up a connector at your local hardware store. I do not think they sell the connector you need but you can pick up a 1/4 inch male and female connector.  To attach this style connector you just have to strip off a little bit of the insulation. Then place the connector onto the bare wire and crimp in place. Once you have both side crimped in place just push them together.

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Q:

how can a large tare in the assembly bag be patched? part number 664-0094 247770990 Craftsman Yard vacuum

A:

 

 

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the bag on the lawn vac. If the bag did not hold with tape, you can try sewing the hole closed. I recommend finding thread that is made to sew canvas. If you have a heavy-duty sewing machine, you may be able to use it to sew the bag. If you do not have a sewing machine, you can do it by hand. While holding the hole closed, sew close together and back and forth. Once you have the hole sewed closed, give it a tug. If it seems weak, you can cut a piece of canvas to cover the hole and sew it in place. That should keep it from opening again.

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
