Hello, Need some help with my sears. I had it running and was plowing it ran out of gas so I filled it up came back it restarted then died and now there is nothing when I turn the key I think its the solenoid. Looking for any other advice. And if anyone knows if the solenoid is really behind the dash under the battery plate? What a painful place to get too.

They really hid some of them. If you happen to have the model #, (917...) it might help us to see an exploded view online.

Boy, they really burried it, didn't they? On the upside, it looks to be readily available.

Don't forget to check the grounding at the solenoid, that can cause you some headaches too!

Yes they did bury it, I will check the grounding seems to be okay. I need to pick up a new one. How does the steering wheel come off? If I can get that off I think I can remove the dash which would make life much easier it needs a new dash anyways.

Steering wheels are one of those "Problem Children" in this hobby. Most times guys destroy the the wheel, shaft or both getting it off.

...or too expensive! Congrats on getting it figured out! If the wire melted, you may want to be sure the fuse isn't too big. Just a thought!
