What do you mean by 'overheats'?
If it runs for a period of time then dies but will restart after it cools back off the ignition module is suspect.
Run it with the airbox cover and air filter removed. when it fails immediatly spray a shot of carb cleaner in the carb and try to restart. If it wont start its the module if it does start and you can keep it running on a prime then its a fuel issue.

SOURCE: I can crank my murray gas lawn mower 6.5 quantum

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

As for the blades shutting offf when you go in reverse, it should have a reverse mow safety switch. Some mowers have them, some do not. In regards to the electric PTO switch, and you would have to take electical measurement when it happens, the coil in the electic PTO clutch may be starting to go bad.

Does the mower die right away (cuts out) or does it sputter to a halt. Sputtering out would indicate a fuel problem. If it just cuts out when hot, then more likely an ignition problem. Your coil may need replacing. Take a close look at the coil wire (spark plug wire) and its routing. Make sure it's not touching part of the engine where it's heating up and has caused a "leak" to ground it out when it gets hot. If all is well then check your spark when the engine is hot and cuts out. Make sure you have a very good blue spark and not a weak one (check it cold first and then compare!). Again, indicating a possible ignition coil problem. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.
