Check the air filter and replace it if it is dirty. Also, get a product at an auto parts store called seafoam, a carbeurator cleaner, and add it to your fuel at the rate of one ounce per gallon of fuel.

The problem is in the seat safety switch or associated wiring. Lift the seat, find the switch, and take a look for a connector that is off, a broken wire, or a loose or broken mounting for the switch. If all that seems ok, remove the switch and put tape across the plunger so it is activated. Run the mower and see if the problem is solved. If not, replace the switch - it's not expensive. Parts are available from Sears online or at their stores. You'll need the model number of your tractor. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful.

Cuts out when I let out the clutch


try and find a relay, near the engine, which is connected to the safety switches attached to the seat and clutch/brake pedal. you may find that relay to be bad, or you need to replace or short the safety switches. If you short them, might be a safety issue as the engine and blades will run unattended. Seems to be a very common problem with craftsman lawn tractors.

Safety switch at seat or reverse. Mower will cut of when blades are engaged if you get off the seat or put into reverse. Check these switches for stuck on, damaged, disconnected, or just plain broke. Good luck.
