Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
After starting the engine if I start to engage the mower blade or start to
release the clutch /brake pedal the engine dies at once. What could cause this problem?
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.
