Question and Answers


Craftsman mower #917252700: does there have to be a 12 volt going to the ignition coil, I have replaced it and the new one still won't fire.


Thank you for your question.

The ignition coil on this tractor does not require 12 volts to produce a spark. If you have replaced the coil and still do not have spark I recommend checking the air gap between the flywheel magnet and the coil. The air gap should be .012. If the air gap is fine, remove the kill wire then check for spark. If you have spark there is a short in the kill wire somewhere or a failed seat switch. If you do not have spark I suspect a failed ignition coil. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair of the tractor.
