SOURCE: I have 16 hp Craftsman riding mower with a Kohler engine.

It may think you are in reverse and is killing the motor to keep you from backing up with the blade running. Look for switch that is telling it when you are in reverse, maybe it is stuck with grass or other debris. another possibility is that the blades are jammed and they are stalliing the motor. Mines stalls easily when cold.

Let the clutch out and it shuts off


Your problem lies somewhere in the safety switches of the mower. Just going in the dark if the mower has a safety switch on the seat, which I am almost certain it does, I believe this is where the problem is. One simple way to check on most models is as follows. Set the park brake on the mower, start the mower as normal, make sure you are in neutral and then let off the clutch. If it doesn't die the issue is in the seat safety switch. Most models will run and let you get off the mower IF the park brake is on. I hope this helps.

check the "kill switch" they are usually located in the seating area. it senses for pressure or seat angle and will kill the mower if nobody is sitting on the mower. Good Luck
