Engine starts idle well and sshut off when attempt engage blades

Chances are one of two sensors is broken or out of adjustment.
Either will cause engine shutdown when blades are engaged.
The first is the seat sensor. If you rise out of the seat with the blades engaged, the engine will die. That sensor is usually a switch located under the seat. The second is the Reverse lever (Or gear position). Newer tractors will shut off if operated in reverse with the blades engaged. This sensor may be more difficult to find, but it is usually another switch located around the gear shifter (or hydrostatic control lever).

I have mdl#917.270781, motor stops when try to engage mower blades. Removed deck and it still stood when you lift engaging lever.. I replaced interlock switch 153664, but did not help.

I don't your problem is the PTO switch but is either a bad operator seat switch or loose connection. The operator seat switch connector has a built-in shorting strip that engages when the connector is loose or unplugged.

My new zero turn simplicity stalls when i disingage the parking lever

hi there Brian 357638

sounds like you have a safety switch problem

try disconnecting seat switch and retry if works could be wire grounding some where or faulty switch then try fitting a jump wire to seat switch wire connector retry or you have a blade engagement switch playing up or a nuetral switch playing up but more likely a seat switch

take a look

Engine stalls when blade is engaged

the best way to check is to run the engine with you on it then lift off the seat and see if the seat sensor is cutting off then put a bag with some weight in it and turn on the engine it should run ok if the sensor is working and lift the back box to see if the sensor works there.. the other cause could be a build up of grass in teh cutter area stopping the blades fron moving this can caus a stall if you get a hose and blast under the cutter guards and make shure the grass shute is clear for the grass to exit this may help to mine cuts out if there is a blockage here and the grass cant get out after it has been cut it builds up at the exit plates.. Hope this works AB

Cub cadet Z Force 48 inch zero turn blades won't engage

I hope this will help you...under the side panels on each side of the mower, there are "reverse lockout safety switches", they are supposed to stop the blades when both handles are pulled back. If one or both of the switches are out, the deck will not engage. Also, under the right side panel (when sitting on seat) there should be 3 relay switches, the one closest to the motor controls the PTO., if this is out, the PTO will not engage.

Craftsman GT5000: Dies when switch is pulled to engage blades

Check for burnt fuse behind dash. If no burnt fuses check if getting power to magnetic clutch mounted on bottom of engine crankshaft. Make sure wires are not broken by magnetic clutch. Make sure the safety seat switch is working. Make sure you are sitting on the seat when you try to engage the blades. If that does not work try pushing and wiggling the seat sensor. Check make sure wire is attached to safety switch under seat.
