Poulan riding mower shuts off when I let up on clutch/brake

I have a Poulan riding mower. It starts fine, when I let up on the clutch/brake it shuts off. This started after working fine, then I shut down to gas up, and then when I started up it again, it started acting this way.

Why do my poulan riding mower cut off when releasing brake or clutch pedal and even when engaging mower blades


You have a fault in the safety circuit that prevents certain actions. A good DIY person with circuit tracing knowledge should be able to check each switch in turn, if not its a dealer/ garden machinery shop job. Are you heavy enough to close the seat switch? Its just a thought ?

Where is the part located that shuts the mower off when you release the clutch


There is a safety switch for the brake clutch and if the seat safety switch is not activated by someone sitting on it, then the mower will die. So if you are sitting in the seat and the brake clutch is released and the seat safety is faulty then the engine dies, so the seat safety is where you should start looking.

The mower will stall when I lift my foot off the brake.


If you have a gear transmission,you have some safety switches. One under the seat. One on the clutch -brake pedal. These switches work together to prevent accidental injury. One may have disconnected or a wire frayed. If one switch has failed it will shut the mower off.
