My mower will die everytime i engage the blades to mow

I was mowing the other day and the mower just quit. i went o reengage the mower and turned it off and back on. The mower blades acted like they wanted to start up, but suddenly would quit as well as bringing down the motor to shut off. i would disengaged the mower switch and the motor would come back to normal rpm's. i replaced the seat censor to see if thats the problem. Im still at square one. please help.

Check to see if one of your deck spindles isn't seized. Disengage the blades and turn each blade to see if its free. Sounds like either a spindle is seized or your electric clutch on the motor has a problem.

Julie this sounds silly but try and run it with the exhaust and muffler removed. If it ticks over and then stops when it's engaged for a few minutes it sounds like its suffocating.

Electric blade clutch won't work and battery went dead


If you have a new battery and it went dead that quickly I would check the charging system on the mower engine. Many of them use a voltage regulator and if it goes bad it will not properly charge the battery. Get the engine running (do not engage the PTO) and use a multimeter set on DC voltage. Place the multimeter leads on the battery and you should see approximately 13-14 volts DC at the battery terminals when it is running. If less then that then it's a problem with the charging system and further tests would be needed to figure out if it is a bad regulator or charging coil.

This actually happened to a friend of mine! I saw it! Mow about 20 feet, and had to stop, then 20 feet...well, you get the picture. It was his air filter! Stopped up pretty good. We blew it out and it worked fine.

sounds as though you are on the right track
but be sure to check the wiring directly from the electric clutch on the front of the motor back to the switch
a wire could be pinched in the frame and shorting out intermittingly
look around and find those wires and move them around and look for chaffing and tightness
and what you could also do is to unhook the clutch at the connection to it at the front of the motor and engage switch and ride around and see if fuse blows and if not you may have an electric clutch issue
