Most probably you have a wire shorting to the frame of your mower.

Trace (follow) the wires from the switch, checking for any frayed, burned, or bare wires.

Repair as needed.

I have a husqvarna loyth20f42y riding mower it wasn't starting replaced the solenoid and ignition switch. now it starts but every time I engage the blades it blows the fuse


Because it blows when the blades are engaged, it is probably the PTO switch or electric clutch. You can check both quickly with a multi-meter. The clutch should ohm out at 2-5 ohms.

Does model # 917.276021 have a mower lock out on the transmission


The PTO when engaged draws a lot of power from the battery. Check the battery for proper voltage. If your battery is low or say 1/2 charge, it will never engage the blades and will die every time you try to engage the blades.
