Sounds like a safety interlock. Was there any electrical wires going to the deck, to the engage switch, the up down lever? There is a neutral switch that is closing or opening and the circuit is shutting down the motor.

Sounds like your drive belt may have came off or it needs to be replaced. Take the battery out from under the seat to see if belt is still around transaxle. Sometimes it will jump off when doing a lot of starting stopping

YS 4500 Stalls out after running for 20 mins


I do believe they change plug(s) and air filter? There could be impurities and water in tank. Check for any loose electrical connections. Problem with valve clearance. Keep me informed.
