    The most common cause of this problem is a plugged fuel cap. when the engine runs fine for a short time then quits, it's because a vacuum occurs in the gas tank and the engine starves of fuel. The other less common cause is debris in the carburetor bowl which plugs the main jet starving the engine. When it sits for a period of time, the debris settles back down to the bottom of the bowl and the engine runs again. Ignition problems are almost never as intermittent as this.

SOURCE: Sears Craftsman riding mower V belt getting chewed

I believe you may have the belt over one or more of the belt retainers next to the pulleys. They are 5 or 6 inches long and about a 1/4 inch in diameter. You have to loosen them when you put the belt on then adjust them to where they are just barely touching the back of the belt. They keep the belt from jumping off.

Look under the mower to see if the drive belt has come off or broke. It is the belt that runs from the bottom of the engine to the rear axle.

My craftsman 18.0 42" lawn


First check to make sure you can turn each blade by hand, with the mower off. If neither blade spindle is frozen remove the deck and make sure all the pulleys move freely and function like they should. The cable should have been operating a spring loaded pulley arm that applied tension to the deck belt to make the blades function. Some times build up with block that from moving or rust will make it stick.

I would suggest checking your owner's manual. There is a leveling process and my Craftsman wasn't leveled at the factory. Once I leveled mine, it cut fine. If you can't find it in your manual, google leveling craftsman mower deck.

Check simple things first - as soon as engine dies, remove gas cap and attempt to restart. If successful, the vent is blocked, causing a vacuum to form in the tank. Effect will be more pronounced when tank is full.
