I ran over a steel stake that locked up my blades and killed the engine. Freed jam, engine will still not start. Is there a safety reset?

While mowing, I ran over a metal stake that locked my blades up and killed the engine. All is clear now but I cannot get the engine to restart. Is there a safety switch that has to be reset or is it more involved than that?

Mower starts but shuts off when put in gear or engage blades


Sounds like a safety switch is bad. The most likely culprit is the seat switch, which detects operator presence. If the switch is bad it will not detect an operator in the seat which will kill the engine if a gear is selected or the blades are engaged. It is located under the seat and easy to replace. Start there and let me know, Daniel.

Check the safety switches, especially the blade safety switch, people forget that one. Blades must be disengaged to start the engine.

Started up...then died as if safety switch 18HP craftsman rider


On later models there are possibly three safety switches, one under the seat, one for the blade engage mechanism or blade clutch so the blades don't turn when the mower is started, and a neutral safety switch to make sure the mower is in neutral before it starts.
