Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Have you located the fuse yet? Can you locate the starter solenoid? It should be under the rear fender just below the seat on the left rear corner of the frame. If you can find the solenoid then the fuse should be right around it usually attached to the frame. It is normally a 20 amp but could be a 15 amp depending on what Craftsman chose to put in it.
You might look under the hood around the fuel tank mount area sometimes MTD who built this machine for Sears likes to hide the fuses up there. If it is there it will be along the right side of the fuel tank if you were sitting in the seat of the machine.
