What may have caused tractor to die and not start/run? 917273622 Craftsman Lawn tractor


Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issues you're having with the tractor. I know how frustrating that is. It sounds like you have a couple of things going on here. I will offer a few suggestions to help.

I would start by using a meter to check the voltage of the battery while the tractor is off. If should read between 12-13v. While the tractor is running, the voltage should be between 14-15v. That would tell you whether or not you have a system charging issue. If you're not getting the proper charge, it could be an issue with either the stator or the regulator. 

The issue with it not starting definitely sounds fuel related. I would start by disconnecting the inlet fuel hose from the carburetor (or fuel filter too), and have someone sit on the tractor and turn the key. With the voltage present, you should have fuel coming out of the hose. If not, I would recommend checking the vacuum hose on the pump. If it's cracked or not connected, it will not pump. If you do have fuel coming out, I would pull the carburetor and perform a thorough cleaning or rebuild. 

You may also have a spark issue. Pull the spark plug, reattach it to the boot, and ground it to the cylinder. Once again, have a helper sit on the tractor and turn the key to start while you ground the plug. You should have spark. If not, you could have an electrical issue with one of the safety switches, or an issue with the coil. 

I hope this helps you narrow down the issue, and thanks for using We appreciate your business.
