Mower cranks and runs fine but when I release brake pedal, it dies. I have check all safety switches and they all have continuity when they are suppose to


Sounds like your seat switch isn't working. Operator presence (seat switch activated) is required when the brake is released & pro is engaged or your engine will shut down.

How could gas be entering the crankcase of my Husqvarna 48" riding lawn mower?


Sounds like you have a hole 'burnt' in the piston top allowing fuel combustion mixture (normally compressed above the piston) getting down into the crankase or that the piston rings are shot allowing the same thing.
As the piston is continuously moving, the reverse happens giving oil at the intake or carb.

. Looks like a strip down, good inspection and rebuild of engine required .

Try to start mower and turns over but wont start unless you pour gas in carb then it will start and run fine. 1648s scotts mower with a kohler motor.


Does it continue to run after you start it by pouring gas into the carburetor or does it die again?

If it continues to run, it sounds like your choke is not working. Probably disconnected -- check linkage.
