Usually, that's an indication the the seat switch is not working. It's like getting off the seat without locking down the parking brake or getting off the seat with the baldes engaged, same result...engine dies.

check mower blades for blade upside down. you may be hitting grass with back of blade. match blade position to working blade side. or swap blades left to right and see if problem moves. if so, blade is culprit. also cold be a loose blade bolt allowing the shaft to spin without driving the blade. Do all work with engine off key out!

There is a seat safety switch located beneath most seats, and on some models one on the PTO lever. Depending on the model, there will also be one on the foward reverse tranmission lever if equipped.

Engage blades makes noises


Sounds like the bearings are going out in one or both of your blade spindles. With the belt off,(and engine, of course) engage the lever on the dash. That will release the blade brake so the blades will be free to turn. Spin each one by hand. It will be easy to tell if the bearings are bad.
