  1. Outdoors How can Sears charge $240.00 for a replacement bag for a lawn vacum that costs less than $700.00 to replace the entire unit? This is so ridiculous that I

    Part 6640094 for a model 247.77011 yard vac, Julie. It's a really heavy felt bag assembly that costs $240.
  2. Outdoors What Would Be Your Dream Backyard?

    Waterfront makes a nice backyard! A pond, stream or ocean works. That and a small golf course, maybe 2 or 3 holes.
  3. Outdoors I have a Craftsman riding mower model 917288031 that won't start. I was working fine, but now nothing happens when turning the key. No headlights. Replaced battery - its fully charged. What do I need to do?

    Hi Steve, sounds like the fuse is blown. Check for a blade-type 20 amp automobile style fuse under the hood about where your right knee would be if you were sitting on the tractor.
  4. Home & Family How do you make your coffee in the morning?

    Hi Julie! Keurig makes super coffee, imagine choosing from dozens of flavor cups...hazelnut one morning, maple sleigh ride or blueberry the next. The key is finding a place that offers the Kcups indiv…

  8. Outdoors lawn tractor will not start. makes a clicking noise

    Hi gem ski, sounds like you have a weak battery. Set the parking brake and try jump starting it from a car or battery pack like the Diehard portable power models. Let us know if the jump doesn't work.
  9. Outdoors I bought a ride on mower on April of 2010. In the year that I’ve owned it, the mower has been out of service for the majority of the time only it has 15.5

    The bagger tube is clogging when the grass is wet. Mowing at a slower speed and less than the full 54" will help. but a lawn sweeper picks up wet grass without clogging.
  10. Outdoors Do you know what the warranty is for a GT6000 purchased at a Sear's Outlet?

    The clock runs as long as the key is left on. At 96 hours the battery is dead.

    Thanks for the reply Michael, that big 54" deck requires optimal conditions to bag, smaller decks work better, especially on thick, tall or wet grasses. I can understand the techs frustration and your…

    Hi Michael, I would like to see you enjoy your tractor and bagging system. You must be very disappointed with Sears by now. There are bagging blades and even advanced bagging blades available from SeA…
  13. Outdoors How much is a craftsman lawn tractor model 917.28722 worth

    Hi Diaper6, that's a nice Craftsman model. If its running well an asking price would be a thousand dollars, a bid would be closer to 500. The current similar Craftsman model 28851 sells around $1450. …
  14. Outdoors riding lawn mowers with auto tran, can they be serviced?

    One thing to check is the drive belt. there are two belts on your tractor, one for the blades and a second one above that belt to drive the rear axle. If the drive belt has broken or loosened off a pu…

  17. Food & Cooking How to make a yummy & good looking omelet?

    Hi laurel! The simplest way ( cheating) is to finish the omelet under the broiler, then fold it in half or buy one of those split omelet pans. I use a spatula to pick up the edge of the omelet while c…
  18. Outdoors Sears Lawn Tractor w/ Briggs Stratton engine. Model has "totally automatic transmission" which works great. My small lawn tractor (don't have model number because it is pouring down rain) was working perfecty Saturday morning. I ran over a nail and had to stop to fix that. I had to jack the tractor up to remove the wheel. When I got the wheel back on, the tractor started but I could not get the transmisson to engage in reverse or forward. It had worked an hour earlier. I checked all the things I could think of including the little lock mechanism. Any suggestions

    Hi mik55jen, it sounds like when you put the tire back on the axle the key was displaced. The axle and the rim have a groove that the key fits in, the key is a sliver of metal about the size of a matc…
