Question and Answers

Q:

Solenoid Kit did not make the LT 2000 19.5 OHV start.

A:

Thank you for your question on the tractor engine not turning over to start.

There are a number of things that can cause this to be the problem. If I understand you correctly you are stating that the engine will not spin over when you turn the key?

Please make you have the clutch lever in and the PTO switch in the off position.

The engine model number is a composite of a string of numbers in order to look up parts or a manual.

I believe your engine model number is: 31p677-0804-B1. With that information you should be able to pull up at least parts information.

The start solenoid wire may not have to be grounded if the bolts that secure the solenoid screw directly into the chassis.

The Model number of the tractor is under the seat and the format will look like this: 247.2XXXXXXX or 917.2XXXXXX.

In looking at the picture you sent I looks like it may be a 247.model that has the fuse in the back under the seat below the battery box.

If you would please reply with this number I will be able to look at the breakdown of the tractor and not just the engine model number. Once you have the tractor model number you should be able to look up the manual information.

In the meantime please check the inline fuse in the wire harness under the hood. Some off them are located in the wire harness under the steering area and other models are located next to the start solenoid. It usually is a yellow 20 amp automotive type fuse that plugs into the harness.

Please let me know what you find out.

Thank you for the update on the starting problem. Did you find the fuse? To see if the solenoid is not engaging you could jump across the two red terminals with a large insulated handel screw driver to see if the starter will engage. If it does then you will need to see why the start solenoid is not getting 12 volts through the safety circuit and engage the solenoid. If you do not find the problem please look under the seat of the tractor and reply with the model number of the tractor. Sam A.

Q:

my p/n #134941300b(0804) he kenmore dryer is taking longer to dry clothes

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern. The number you provided is a part number of the installation instructions and not the model number of the dryer. Without having the model number I would not be able to identify if the dryer is gas or electric.

Without having the model number I will be able to provide general information only. Generally speaking, whenever a dryer takes longer than normal to dry a load of clothes is usually related to the venting system. A restricted vent system will cause the dryer to take longer to dry. For testing purposes only, disconnect the vent hose from the back of the dryer and the dry one load of clothes. If it dries in the normal amount of time, then this test would confirm the venting system will need to be checked for any restrictions or blockages.

If you use fabric softeners the filter could have a clear film of fabric softener residue on the screen creating a restriction also. Remove the lint filter and clean it under running water and a soft bristle brush until water will flow freely through the screen.

If it's a gas dryer then it could have a set of faulty solenoid coils on the gas valve if there are no venting restrictions.

Reply with the model number for model specific information and troubleshooting assistance if needed.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

What is an E1 error?

A:

Your digital display should have shown a F1 and not an E1 error code. F1 indicates a primary control failure. Meaning the machine control board will need to be replaced. I recommend calling a service technician to repair your dryer.
