Carb needs cleaned as it can't handle the load of the engine and the deck at the same time. My guess about the spark plug melting is that the electronic ignition may have become hot while trying to start the mower causing the wire to melt.

Why does my riding mower die when put in gear or engage the blades


Check out the grass box safety switch. if not fully depressed it will apply brakes to the blades when in gear. Most mowers are designed with a safety switch to stop the blades, or forward motion if the grass box is not fitted correctly.

Briggs 407777, type 0121-E4


The engine is not developing power and the presence of a load causes it to slow down and quit all together. Is there some sort of timing advance on that motor? In a car if the timing is not right that is exactly what happens when you put the car into gear and try to use it.

I would not mess with the valves till I check out the timing.

My landlords toro riding mower starts fine but as soon as i touch the shifter to put it in gear it dies over and over..carb is clean and new gas with stabilizer


There are several safety switches that prevent operation in case the rider falls off, etc. First check seat safety switch...the likely culprit. It must close ensuring a person is in the seat for movement or blade operation. Find a toro wiring diagram, or visually wire trace, or just inspect the proper operation of all safety switches. DO NOT BYPASS SAFETY SWITCHES, but ensure they are working properly for SAFE OPERATION.

On later models there are possibly three safety switches, one under the seat, one for the blade engage mechanism or blade clutch so the blades don't turn when the mower is started, and a neutral safety switch to make sure the mower is in neutral before it starts.
