It is a short in the kill switch, or the wire running to the kill switch. check insulation on the wire running to the kill switch and check the routing of the wire to insure that it is not being rubbed by moving parts, or the insulation melted by hot engine parts such as the exhaust system. Finally check that the kill switch itself is functioning properly with a test light or OHM Meter.

how old is the mower? Usually one in the seat & under the engine cover where you depress the clutch/brake pedal. Good place to start. Hope it helps.

Test seat switch


Disconnect it from the seat. Keep the plunger down with your fingers as if you're sitting on it with the seat, and start the machine. Let the plunger go and it the machine is running while in gear, the switch is bad. Also, you can use a multimeter to check continuity with the plunger up and down. That will tell you if it's working or not.

I have a Craftsman mower, model 917.273810, and when you engage the blades, the brake pads that are used to stop the blades from turning when you disengage the blades...won't release and it trys to...


Sounds like you have a broken spring #148 on diagram, part #169022 that holds the idler arm back. Go to www.searspartsdirect.com and enter the model # of your mower and click on the mower deck to print drawing out, take your deck off the mower and see if all the springs are ok. If the pads are closed on the pulleys and the pads release when you turn the idler arm, the deck is ok. The problem will be a bad or disconnected safety switch that cuts the motor off if you try to ingage the mower. If the switch is disconnected under the seat it will kill the engine when the mower is engaged. I had this problem on my mower, just plug the wiring into this switch or replace it if it is bad.

No spark


Eigther the kill switch failed or ignition module. Disconnect wire to kill switch if you get spark then switch is bad. Still no spark with kill wire disconnected ignition module quit.
