Q:

Craftsman Model #917271021

A:

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I will be happy to assist you. I posted an image below that shows how to check and add oil to the transaxle. Just click on the image to enlarge it. Removing the tow bar will give you access to the top of the transaxle to check the oil. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.    Thank you for using Manage my life.Mark

Q:

Where can I get a wiring diagram for a Craftsman riding lawn mower model 917271021?

A:

I can't pull up a wiring schematic for your exact riding mower. I am sending you an image of a wiring schematic I think will be the same as yours. If you have any relays on your mower, they won't be in the schematic I am sending. Send another email and describe the electrical system. We will try to match a schematic for you. Craftsman has used 4-5 schematics over the years.

Q:

I have a lawn tractor, model 917271021, with a 15.5 Kohler, 42 inch mower. The trans is slipping, and has no power going up inclines. The belt looks ok.

A:

There is a plug on top of the transaxle housing that has a vent hole on top of it. Remove this plug and measure from the top of the transaxle housing to the oil level. The oil should be no more than 1 1/4 inches down.

If the transaxle is low on oil, add 20W50 motor oil to fill it up. Look for oil leaks on the transaxle.
