Question and Answers

Q:

lawn tractor why does it die when i let off of the clutch

A:

Most of the time this type of issue is caused by a seat switch failure. Basically the seat switch is not functioning and the tractor thinks you aren't on the seat. It could also be caused if the PTO switch has failed as the safety circuit runs through that switch as well. The seat switch connector has a shunt built into it. If the connector is not firmly plugged on the seat switch, it grounds out and when the clutch is released or the deck is engaged, the engine will die. Look closely at the connector and you will see a plunger that is pushed in when it is plugged on the seat switch. If the connector is on the seat switch securely, either the seat switch or the connector might be shorted internally. You need a meter to test this. The seat switch should read open when pushed. I hope this is helpful.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

I Have A LT 3000 Tractor witha B&s 20 HP ENG runs and cuts good but does not want to Idle down runs full speed all the time Help

A:

Without a model number of the engine or the tractor, I can only give you general information. The model number of the tractor is under the seat. Lt3000 is a style number and can include 6-8 different model numbers.

Check the connection on the carburetor of the throttle cable. Be sure the throttle cable is rotating the throttle plate on the carburetor.

Remove the air cleaner and be sure the throttle baffle is mounted to the throttle shaft and is rotating to the closed position when you throttle the engine down.
