SOURCE: Tractor Will Not Move And Dies When Brake Is Released

I would check the wires and clean the connectors and make sure seat switch is working. If that is not working, it's like getting off the seat without holding the brake/clutch pedal down or getting off seat with blades engaged. Both will cause engine to die.

SOURCE: riding mower dies when releasing brake

the seat switch is the problem. the switch itself could be bad, but usually theproblem is that the connector is just not plugged in all the way [by the way, trying to bypass the switch by inserting the wire doesn't work because there is a "switch" inside the connector to prevent you from doing just what you did]

SOURCE: DTY 4000 tractor dies when engaging pto, new

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.

Engine dies when brake is released.


You have a problem with a safety interlock. I'm betting it's the operator presence safety seat switch. To check if it is the seat switch:
  1. Unplug the seat switch.
  2. Jumper the seat switch wiring harness plug receptacles.
  3. Start your tractor & release the brake. If the tractor stays running, replace the seat switch.

It sounds like the seat switch is not working. This switch must be made by a person sitting in the seat for the brake to be released or for the blades to be engaged. It is possible to start the mower with the switch open.
