Question about Husqvarna Riding Mowers & Garden Tractors
14 hp Jonsered Husk engine for ride on mower.
Engine cuts out when I release clutch/brake.
Haven't started engine since Sept 08 due to winter.
Has been stored outside under covering.
It may think you are in reverse and is killing the motor to keep you from backing up with the blade running. Look for switch that is telling it when you are in reverse, maybe it is stuck with grass or other debris. another possibility is that the blades are jammed and they are stalliing the motor. Mines stalls easily when cold.

Under the seat, there is a operator presence switch, if this switch fails, the mower will shut off when the brake is released, or put in any gear.

There is an operator presence switch under the seat...it is more than likely faulty and must be replaced in order for the mower to run right.

First check the seat switch,make sure it is plugged in tightly, these plugs have a safety tab built into them that will cut the engine off if you unhook it,sometimes the plug latch pulls out slightly and this will cut the engine, There are two other switches in the system one on the foot clutch and on on the mower clutch, if you follow the white wire from you ignition switch it will lead you to both of them,check those connections also.

cut the wires running to the switch...try again...if same, stripp back wires, and twist together...wrap in tape or use some sort of connector...it's electric and should be treated as such...try again...still ?? Start finding those switches and repeat the process til it works...theres usually 3 or 4...
