Why does my Craftsman Garden Tractor # 917276022 that runs but when I engage the pto it dies immediately?

I have replaced the wiring harness, PTO switch, and checked all the safeties. All the belt have been replaced as well as the clutch.

Well usually when this happens it;s a safety switch that's defective or misadjusted but your sure these are good Id try dropping the mower deck and try enguaging pto if it still runs you got a deck problem ,I have seen spindle bearings lock so tight that it'll stall a 46 hp tractor but that was a brush cutter deck

You may have to replace the operator presence switch or the seat switch. That is the problem, the seat switch is not making contact. So the controls do not know you are there. Thats why it is shutting off when you try to move or engage the blades, no one is on it so it shuts off, safety first. Hope this fixya up.

Hi,
This is just a suggestion. Try pulling the choke out about one third to one half and then engage the PTO. Sometimes the air idle adjust screw port gets a tiny speck of debris in it. If with the choke partially out and the PTO engages the just grab a screwdriver and turn the air idle mixture screw counter clockwise a hair.

My craftsman ZTS 6000 dies when I take the parking brake off. It has just started doing this. Which part do I replace?


It is most likely the driver presence switch located under the seat. If the tractor has the brake set it will start and run without the driver in the seat. (PTO-off)

Releasing the brake requires a driver of sufficient weight to be in the seat for the tractor to continue to run. If the switch is defective the tractor even with driver inplace will stall. The PTO (mower deck must not be engaged).

Hope this helps?

What causes mower deck to sometimes engage after PTO switch gets shut off.


Sounds like a bad connection in the wiring harness from the switch to the PTO clutch. I have a lot where the wires broken at the clutch but still make contact randomly since the insulation was still in place.

Ignition acting funky


With many of these Tractors, as part of the safety B.S., much of the electronics run through the PTO switch. Power to the ignition runs through the PTO.

I have a husqvarna riding mower.. when i engage pto it kills the mower.. i direct wired the pto to the battery and it kicks on and off while mowing, mower runs fine when the pto is off please help


If you wired the pto directly to the battery and still kicks off and on, you have a bad pto clutch. They can be expensive but they are fairly easy to replace. Hope this helped.

Craftsman 26hp Garden Tractor PTO not working


If you changed the belt make sure it did not interfere with the wire that runs from the pto clutch, sometimes that belt can rub on the wire and wear through it,also if you had the clutch off make sure you aligned the steel retainer bolt that sets in the alignment hole on the pto clutch,this keeps the clutch from spring when disengaged if you don't get that pin through the hole in clutch it can push on the clutch and bind it.Also it may be possible to plug that pto switch in backwards.Also if you jumped the fuse out it may now have burnt the switch or wiring somewhere.
