John deere gx255 shuts down when brake released.

John Deere GX255 with 54 inch deck. Engine will not stay running when i release the brake. As long as the brake is on it runs. Release it and the engine shuts down. The ignition controller has a red led lit, the board smell like something burned up. I dont know if the board is the issue or did something else take it out. Im going to try and bypass the seat switch. Looked at Deere's parts list but its not clear which is the seat switch.

For sure the seat switch is the likely problem. The logic is if the brake is set the engine will start and run. If the brake is released and no driver in seat a saftey situation is possible and the engine turns off. Check seat switch, Bi pass to troubleshoot.

Hope this helps?

Looked up detailed isometric diagram w/ parts denoted on John Deere website. FixYa website was a litele misleading. I did not realize that accessing a question posted "for free" would cost me something to get the answer. It's kind of like askin a neighbor as a neighbor to give you a hand and then he sends a bill.

SOURCE: engine dies when clutch brake released on husqvarna gth2548

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.

Why does engine die when brake is released? on a john deere riding mower


is your engine revved up when engaging the blades or releasing the brake if so i would start with the fuel filter spark plug and make sure your fuel is no more then a couple months old after that the ethanol will separate from the gasoline and cause nightmares try running a bottle of B12 chemtool carb cleaner it has done wonders for me personally both cars and small equipment

How to adjust tension on belt of John Deere Ride On D140


How to adjusted Cutting Deck Belt Tension

You do not say which size cutting deck you have. I will be writing about the 48", 3 blade cutting deck

The belt on this deck is self tensioned. The tension is provided by a spring attached to a moveable pulley on the deck. When the belt is in place you can manually force this pulley forward/backward and it will release the tension.

If the belt is off track, place the belt back around all the pulleys in the correct path, lastly force this spring loaded pulley forward/backward (depending on your deck, the direction is not important, the tension is) to get the belt around the pulley. If the belt is placed correctly, when you release the spring loaded pulley it will properly tension the belt.

Typically, these belts should not be jumping off. If yours is coming off frequently the belt may be worn. When they wear they get quite a bit longer, then the tension pulley cannot apply the correct tension. Rarely does the tension spring have to be replaced.

The other problem that causes belt jumping is worn spindles and stationary pulleys. The spindles are the most likely to need replacement. You can buy excellent replacements for JD spindles on Amazon for very reasonable prices. The following spindles are super replacement spindles for the 48" deck. They may very well be the same for smaller and larger decks; I have not researched that. Just search Amazon for Silver Streak # 285851.

Brake pedal won't release on a John Deere 316 lawn tractor


I have the same problem. I just wiggle the black handle on the parking brake release. It usually allows the pedal to come back up. One of these days I'll see what hanging up in the linkage.
