SOURCE: Engine starts, but stalls when clutch is released.

The is a safety switch located underneath the mower, in the dashboard area. This switch will not pass voltage to the ignition system unless the pedal is depressed, or the deck is not all the way up. However, your culprit is most likely the pto (power take off) switch on the dash that engages the blades. It will not allow the mower to start, if pulled, and if faulty will shut off ignition power when you release the pedal. First. You'll need a volunteer to sit on the mower and operate the controls.  Now put the deck down and with the pedal depressed start the engine. Nothing should happen, if it does replace the deck switch Sears part number #176138 mentioned above. Now raise the deck and release the pedal. Again, nothing should happen. Same solution if it does. If nothing happens on both tests the switch is ok. NOW. Behind the dash, find the pto switch, and squeeze the sides, depressing two clips that hold it in the dash. You should now be able to slide it though the dash, wiring attached. Unplug the switch. With pedal depressed, deck up, someone sitting on the seat, start the mower. Now release the pedal (making sure to block the wheels and have the transmission handle is in the neutral position. If the engine continues to run, you found the problem. Replace the PTO switch. Sears part number # 174651. Also, check the plug to the pto, ignition and deck switches for corrosion as this is a common problem, though not likely to cause yours, it could. Good luck, and please let us know the outcome, good or bad. Thanks so much.

SOURCE: engine stalls when clutch/brake pedal is released

Under the seat, there is a operator presence switch, if this switch fails, the mower will shut off when the brake is released, or put in any gear.

SOURCE: lawn tractor won't stay running if clutch is released.

There is an operator presence switch under the seat...it is more than likely faulty and must be replaced in order for the mower to run right.

SOURCE: tractor won't go forward or reverse

Check the drive belt. It has probably broken or has come loose.

Have 17.5hp rider. Starts and ideals ok with brake on. As soon as brake released it stalls. Tuned up and replaced the seat switch. Any ideas?


Hi, It would be more helpful to know make and model of lawn tractor. But lets try take some steps. I assume the tractor is in neutral when started and in gear when release brake pedal? So does it stall when you release brake pedal when in neutral? If not then its not. We can start checking why. Does it stall from working the engine or just shuts off? If it just shuts off then it is a switch. If it truly stalls then a park brake is on or tranny is jammed. Jack drive tries off the ground. See if you can turn tires in neutral. If you can't look for a park brake lever. And while jacked up check all your belts. To see if any are pinched. That is another problem sometimes. The drive belt gets pinched.

I have a DLT 3000 mower every time I let off the clutch it goes dead either in gear or out....HELP


With out more information it sounds like one of the safety switches is faulty -most likley the one under the clutch pedal .To test this locate and unplug the ignition wire coming from the engine to the wiring harness the engine should keep going -- you will need to plug it back in to stop the engine.If this works then repair or replace the faulty switch.

I hope this helps

Mower will not free wheel.brakes off and hydros released


You have to do one more thing to move this tractor without the motor running.
It takes two people to move the Revolution. One needs to sit on the seat and hold the forward pedal down. It will then freewheel.
So, brake off, both hydro release levers pulled (do NOT pull hard or you will break the springs) and the forward (right hand side, big pedal) pedal pushed down.
Any other question? I know this unit pretty well.

I have 16 hp Craftsman riding mower with a Kohler engine.


It may think you are in reverse and is killing the motor to keep you from backing up with the blade running. Look for switch that is telling it when you are in reverse, maybe it is stuck with grass or other debris. another possibility is that the blades are jammed and they are stalliing the motor. Mines stalls easily when cold.
