Question and Answers

Q:

Manufacturer Date of Craftsman Riding Mower

A:

Thank you for your question.

I have looked up the model number you have submitted. The tractor is a 2006 model. If you would like to know the exact date, you will need the serial number. The first six digits are the production date. For example if the first six digits where 052203 the production date would be May 22, 2003.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Q:

Transmission 917276600 Craftsman Tractor

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having this problem with the tractor. It is possible that the belt is stretched. I recommend starting the tractor and put it in gear. When the tractor starts to slow down, hook your foot under the brake pedal and pull it back. If the tractor drives normal with the pedal pulled back, the problem is with the belt. This could be a stretched belt or something binding in the clutch linkage. Sometimes the linkage area will be plugged with grass when this happens the clutch will not tighten the belt. I posted am image below that shows where to clean. Click on the image to enlarge it. After you have the area cleaned, check the operation. If the tractor still does not drive well and the pedal springs, back on its own I recommend replacing the drive belt. The instructions for replacing the drive belt are located in the owner's manual.

If you cannot find the belt at your local Sears store, you can order the replacement from the following link. Replacement parts for a Craftsman tractor model 917276600.

 

 

 I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

A:

That type of problem is normally caused by a failure in the safety switch under the seat. Check the wiring on that safety switch. You may have shifted the switch when adjusting the seat.
