Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model

2 Answers

My Craftsman tractor w/ kohler 15.5 HP runs for approx 45 minutes, then it stalls. I check the fuel filter bowl and no gas is getting thru from the tank to the filtter. I let the tractor sit for 10-15 min and the bowl filter bowl fills. I can then run until the bowl empties agiain. I disconnect the fuel line and the fuel runs right out?

Check the gas pack as mentioned above. If not check down the line for any leaks , air or fuel. Also check the "needle" on the diaphragm inside the carb. And or the fuel jet settings.

It may be that the gas cap no longer vents, allowing air to enter the tank as gas is being used. Try to have cap loose to see it it is the problem, and if it is, a very small hole on cap needs to be opened or made.

SOURCE: Motor runs for 5-10 min. then starts missing and quits.

Check your spark first,if you do not have spark your problem is the coils-if you do have spark the problem probaly lies withone of your valves getting stuck after getting hot and soonas it cools down a little it closes and then you can restart it till it gets hot again.Hope this helps

SOURCE: craftsman garden tractor stalls after running for about 20 minute

do you have the right fuel filter? some are for pressure and some are for gravity feed, the pressure type (fuel pump) wont flow the gas correctly. another possibility would be the coil.

I had the same problem and talked to 3 different techs. The only solution they would come up with is to replace the carb. I didnt believe this was the problem. If you have a fuel solenoid on the bottom of the float bowl remove it and just put in a float bowl plug that threads in. I just taped up the solenoid connector. It runs better than it ever did. I believe the solenoid gets hot and starts shutting off the fuel. I used a plug from a spare set of 1977 yamaha motorcycle carbs I had sitting around.Go figure. Hope this works

Craftsman lawn tractor model no.917.289101 stalls out


Stall or quits? Will it run 15 minutes again after it cools down. Check
carb bowl for water. Loosen the bottom screw a little until gas come out and water will "roll" off the gas that drops out on the deck.

Check for dirt in gas tank some times stuff will fall in when filling and block the hole in bottom of gas tank and wont let gas flow clean everything out and see if it works. Also check that all kill switches are tight and not moving.

Craftmen tractor w/ Kohler engine stalls out continually


Sounds too lean.
Can you cover the air intake with your hand 90% or use the choke a bit and then load the engine to see if it runs better?
If you ever find a carb with manual high and low mixture adjustments that will fit yours......put it on and keep it on.
You can usually get then from older tractors.
