Sounds like the clutch safety switch is going bad.

Sometimes they are wired together so try contact cleaner on the seat switch also.

Really need to know if it acts like it wants to stall or if in fact when you let the pedal up it does stall ? Because they're closely related yet 2 different types of problems. One could be a safety switch problem the other could be one of a few different issues. Can you let us know if it does stall or are you pushing the clutch/brake pedal down before it does ?

Engine on 17.5 hp craftsman mower starts but stalls when clutch is let out !


Check all 3 of your safety switches mounted on the mower. Take a wire or connector and connect the WHITE wires together on each switch together one at a time to see which one has gone bad. Once you find out which one is bad, take the 2 white wires and connect them together where they're always connected or replace the switch.
