model 917297043-Where does clutch cable attach


I can understand your desire to know the correct placement for that clutch cable. I did locate a link that will discuss a clutch cable in greater detail. Though this link discusses a different model number, the mechanics are likely going to be very similar. Keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction. I hope this link will help enable you to reattach your cable and have a nice day.

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance not working.

We do not have written instructions on how to replace the cable. To attach the cable to the engagement handle you will need to squeeze the handle to remove it. Then feed the handle through the loop in the cable. Once you have it fed through, go ahead, and reinstall the handle. Now route the cable in the same manner as the old one was. To attach the cable on the other end loosen the cable clamp and remove the old cable. If the old cable is attached, unhook it and hook the new cable to the idler. Then reinstall the cable in the cable clamp and adjust the cable per the instructions below.

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using
