Simplicity mower stalls when brake released

Simplicity coronet mower stalls when brake released. Starts great and engine runs fine until I release the brake and then it dies immediately. I have checked that the blade switch is in the off position and I even tried bypassing the seat switch but that didn't fix it either.

There is another safety switch connected to the parking/service brake. Check that one too. Sounds like its the one.

2010 Troy built 42 inch riding mower with auto transmission : mower has to have brake pedal depressed to start. It starts fine - let of the brake pedal and the motor stalls out . What is wrong ???

Most of these machines have similar saftey systems.

If you apply the parking brake the engine should continue to run.

If the brake is released and the operator is not in the drivers seat then the motor will stop.

If the operator is in the seat and the seat presence switch is working properly the motor will continue to run as the brake is released.

If the weight of the operator is low (skinny little kid) then the seat presence switch will not activate the motor will stop.

If the switch is defective no matter how heafty the operator is the motor will stop.

There are other components in the electrical system that the switch connects to that could also be the problem

Start with the switch

Hope this helps?

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.
