Question and Answers

Q:

LAWN TRACTOR 917250510 WONT START

A:

Check your battery. Check the wire terminal connections on the battery for corrosion. Clean them if necessary. Make sure that they are tight. You may try jump starting the tractor.

If the battery is okay, I recommend that you check the wiring for any loose connections. The owner's manual has a diagram of the wiring. Here is a link for the owner's manual: Owner's Manual .

If these tips don't help, the tractor will likely need to be serviced by a technician. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

engine

A:

Thank you for your question.I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. If you have to pour fuel into the throat of the carburetor to keep, it running the engine is not getting gas through the carburetor. I recommend checking the fuel flow to the fuel pump first. To do that you have to remove the fuel line from the pump that comes from the tank.  Once it is disconnected lower the line into an approved container. You should observe a full flow of fuel. If you don’t, the line between the tank and pump is plugged. If you do have a good flow of fuel, reconnect the fuel line to the pump. Then disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor and place it in the container. While you have the line in the container, have a helper turn the key to the start position. As the engine is turning over you should observe fuel being pumped out og the fuel line. If you do not have fuel coming out I suspect the fuel pump is defective. If you do have fuel coming out, I recommend taking the carburetor apart and cleaning all the passages with carburetor cleaner. You can clear the holes with a bread tie wire. While you are cleaning the carburetor parts, pay close attention to the holes in the main jet. This is the area of most trouble.    I hope this is helpful.  If you need further assistance, please reply with more details.         Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark T.
