Why does engine die when brake released or mower engaged?


The first thing I would check is to make sure the drive belt is not binding somewhere.

Replace switches & clutch. When brake is release everything dies. Ineed a wiring diagram.


There are a few safety switches on a riding mower. One is the brake clutch, which must be engaged to start mower if not in neutral for a manual transaxle. Another is a blade engaged safety that will not allow you to start it with the blades engaged and the other is the seat safety that prevents starting if the brake is not engaged.

If the seat safety switch is messed up and you release the brake it will kill the engine. I would start there.

I hope this helps get you going.

I have a craftsman mower with the B&S 21hp Intek OHV motor, it starts fine but when you go to engage the blade or go forward or backward or release the parking brake it will die unless you disengage...


Check the switch on the seat, of all places. There's a safety switch on the seat that will kill the engine if it's not engaged when do anything other than start and run the engine.

If the switch checks out, get back with me.

I went to go mow the lawn for the first time this season. Tractor started right up. took the deck cleaned and greased it. Went to engage the p.t.o. for the mower and the tractor stalled. Can't figure...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

The power sequence for engaging the blade deck is. Clutch brake pedal depressed, operator in seat, Enage selected and brake pedal released. When the blade enages the engine igniton kill wire is routed through the seat switch AND the PTO clutch. If either the PTO Clutch or the seat switch has a problem the engine dies. Same goes for the clutch brake pedal switch... if the clutch brake is not coming all the way up the engine will die.

If you respond with a model number (example LX2000) I can show via a manual where you need to troubleshoot using a meter.

Do a couple of good bounces on the seat, check the clutch brake pedal switch for clicks and then attempt to an engagement.

Also inspect the PTO clutch wires and connectors for corrosion.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Problem still exist,engine dies when brake relesases,blade engage,unplug safety switch under the seat


Switch under seat needs to be plugged in and make sure the pto lever for the blades is depressing the safety switch. If you are sitting on seat and seat switch is plugged in properly and it cuts off when brake is released then it is seat switch. It is about a $10.00 part; no big deal to replace.

Mower will not drive


Usually, that's an indication the the seat switch is not working. It's like getting off the seat without locking down the parking brake or getting off the seat with the baldes engaged, same result...engine dies.

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.
