SOURCE: engine stalls when clutch/brake pedal is released

Under the seat, there is a operator presence switch, if this switch fails, the mower will shut off when the brake is released, or put in any gear.

SOURCE: I have a model 42515X92 Murray mower with two

You can go to www.murray.com/manuals/ , put in your model number and download the manuals. As for teh brakes, there is a 1/2 inch nut in the center of the brake caliper that you tighten or losen to adjust the brakes. Put your tractor in neutral on a flat surface, tighten the nut just until you can no longer roll the tractor freely, stop as soon as you reach this point then back the nut off 1/2 turn and you should have good brakes again.

How to make mower stop when clutch/brake pedal depressed


Depending on the model and manufacturer of your mower, but it seems like the brakes are the problem.
I have a Murry and it has one disk brake on the rear wheel shaft. The master mechanism for this disk brake needed to be cleaned of dirt and grass clippings. In my case, this helped but brakes only 50% effecient so I use reverse when on an incline.

WEll, if the switch were to be too far down, essentially pressing on the brakes, this can happen, release the brake light switch and allow the pedal to come to it's normal stop, then adjust the switch for that position.

Aside from heat of brakes, other damage very unlikely.

Riding mower will not start or brake


The two are seperate issues. The switch on the brake pedal is on the frame and is accuated by the pedal, not the rod or spring. If you are not confident with a voltmeter or test light, then the Sears tech will be the fastest thing to mowing again.

My Viking 5710 starts to sew without any pressure on foot pedal


Mine does the exact same thing. I think the problem might lie in the cord to the foot pedal. The cord packs into the foot pedal for storage, which forces the cord to to remain bent during storage. I believe the wires in mind became damaged and broken so I took it apart and reconnected the wires at the spot where the connector meets with the wires. But I still don't leave it plugged in if I'm not using it, it could be a fire hazard.
