You have a safety switch or a relay malfunctioning. Try going to www.partsdirect.com, this is sears website. Look at the diagram to see how many safety switch on this unit. You may get lucky and replace one or you may have to replace all. I would look to see if it has a safety relay first, try replacing that first.

Be sure to check the back end of the seat switch wiring for loose or shorted wires. If the engine is shutting off when the brake pedal is released or the pto is engaged most likely the seat switch has failed. The seat switch connector has a shunt built into it. If the connector is not firmly plugged on the seat switch, it grounds out and when the clutch is released or the deck is engaged, the engine will die. Look closely at the connector and you will see a plunger that is pushed in when it is plugged on the seat switch. If the connector is on the seat switch securely, either the seat switch or the connector might be shorted internally. You need a meter to test this. The seat switch should read open when pushed. I hope this is helpful.

Hi well what you need to do is check all parts properly, you need to check the carburetor, the spark plug, coil, etc, and see if any of those are no good? When a motor does this is is usually a problem with the fuel, the spark or the coil, lead etc, or if it has electronic ignition, this maybe the problem.
However to even attempt a DIY repair one simply MUST somehow obtain a service manual, either contact the manufacturer direct or Google for one, then perform the troubleshooting steps to isolate and hopefully repair the unit.
It may indeed be best though to contact a professional who deals exclusively with this brand and ask them for a "Quote" as to what's wrong and prospective costings and go from there.
