Lawnmower repair
[Return to Topics]

I have a Craftsman lawnmower. When the mower is running, it runs well. But when I release the clutch and/or engage the blades it throttles down like I shut the key off. When I disengage the blades and/or step back down on the clutch it runs fine once again. I feel it is probably one of those pesky safety sensors, but where would I find it if it is, or what else could it be?? I'm baffled. Please help

I have a 2 year old craftsman lawnmower. The gas spilled out of the tank through the fuel filter. I removed the fuel filter and the gas was spilling out of the small hose like water from a water hose. Any suggestions what may be wrong with it and tips for repair??

#1 Make sure thats actually whats happening. Once its shut down pull the sparkplug and verify that theres no spark.

#2 Start following wires around the deck arms. Find the little sensor and disconnect the wire.

You aren't in reverse when this happens are you? Most mowers today won't let you mow in reverse. I don't know what the theory is, but they won't let you do it.

IT WORKED...I followed the wires from the deck and clutch and disconnected the whole plug. It removed all of the safetys, including the seat sensor, a pain in the neck anyway. I appreciate your help.
