Question and Answers

Q:

How to adjust drive control on lawnmower

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the front wheels are not engaging, the drive belt may have come off the gearbox pulley or the pulley under the deck.
 
I recommend checking the drive belt and confirm the belt has not come off the gear box pulley or the pulley located under the deck and above the blade.

Remove the front belt cover (see page 8) and confirm the belt is on the pulley as well as the pulley under the deck. I added a link to the Owner's Manual if needed that shows how to access the gear box pulley and on page 8 it shows how to adjust the turnbuckle.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Q:

I have a Craftsman 21" mower, model 247.37683/Honda GCV160. Is it OK to leave gas in the tank between weekly mowings?

A:

You can depend on the gas to remain fresh 4 weeks from the time you buy it. The gas will go bad in the gas can or the gas tank after a time.

Using a fuel stabilizer in the gas will enable you to store it up to several months.

Q:

Why won't the oven heat above 160 degrees?

A:

The likely failure is a weak Bake igniter. When the Bake igniter becomes weak it will not pull enough electrical current to cause the oven gas valve to open. In order to test the current draw of the oven igniter would require an amperage meter. It should pull 3.2-3.6 amps in order to open the oven gas valve. (See image below)

Another way of knowing if the igniter is weak is if you see the Bake igniter glowing for a long period of time before the gas valve opens or if it's glowing and the gas valve never opens. If the Broil igniter looks like it would mount the same as the Bake igniter you could remove the Broil igniter and install it for the Bake igniter to see if the oven will heat properly.

If the bake burner comes on every time when the bake igniter glows bright red the failure is not likely the Bake igniter but possibly the oven temperature sensor probe. Part number WB21X5301 (sensor probe)

The part number of the Bake igniter is WB13K21 I added a link below to Sears Parts Direct with the igniter already looked up.
