how to replace electric key start switch on craftsman lawn mower


Most replacement parts do not come with installation instructions. They are normally installed by a service technician.

I do not find any installation instructions available for this part. The parts list diagram for this mower is shown in the image below. To replace the control switch part 162208, you will likely need to follow these steps:

  • Unplug the cable connection from the battery and the engine.
  • Remove any cable ties that are securing the cable in place.
  • Remove the operator presence bar if necessary.
  • Remove the bolt (Key 13) that secures the control switch to the mower handle.
Once you get the old control switch off of the mower, you can reverse this procedure to install the new one.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician. Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services .
