Brake shutoff isn't working properly it is located on opposite side of brake about 3inches past steel plate unplug and put jumper wire from white to white wire this will disable brake shut off.this is only a suggestion but it will work.

Hi..my name is Keith...and i havent worked on that lawn mower model..so i cant tell you exactly where the safety switch is..but it sounds like the reverse safety switch has failed and the lawn mower thinks you are in reverse..so i would look around your foward-neutral-reverse shifter for it...i hope this has helped..if not write me back

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

What causes a riding mower to die when engaging the blade


safety switch in the seat and in the brake. if one of those is open, engine will die when you engage the blades. Owners manual should have wiring diagram so you can bypass switches to test (if you have brake applied and are sitting in the seat and that is when it is dying).

When i release the brake on my mower the engine dies if i push it back down immediately it will continue to run


Check your seat switch. If there is someone in the seat, the brake can be released and/or the blades can be engaged. If you can do neither, the seat switch is not opening.

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.

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.

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]
