Question and Answers


My Craftsman tractor won't start in a colder climate. It has less than 20hrs. It has fresh fuel, and 5w30 oil. It turns over fine. Any suggestions before I call service out?


You should sit on the seat with the brake pressed down all the way and the PTO disengaged. Position the choke on full choke and the throttle at high speed. Engage the starter in 10 second increments until the engine starts or attempts to start. If the engine only coughs leave the choke on full and try again. If the engine starts and dies move the choke to the 1/2 choke position and try again.

If this is about what you are doing, schedule service and get a technician to repair the tractor.
