Husqvarna 61 inch zero turn model ZTH6125 Engine cuts out.


Sounds like the safety switch may have stuck. Allowing it to set, the switch "released". Just my guess.

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.

Safety switch - parking brake


You can but I wouldn't recommend it. I would get a multimeter and check switches for continuity. This will tell you if switches are good or bad. This switch could be a normally open or normally closed switch that is why I wouldn't recommend jumping it until you know what kind of switch you have. I think your defineitly on the right track though. Good luck.

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.

Leplease explainon the safety switchs on mtd models660-679 work? I beleave my model is an intek twin. thank you


Hi,

The safety switch beneath the seat is only one part of the several interconnecting safety features of the modern riding mower. If the system works properly, you must be seated for the mower deck to operate. The tractor will continue running with the Power Take Off disengaged if the parking brake is set before the operator leaves the seat.The seat switch consists of two electrical contacts normally separated by an air gap. A spring creates an open space between the two contacts. Mounted between two plates, the switch's spring compresses under the weight of the person sitting in the operator seat and completes an electrical circuit. With the switch closed the tractor's ignition system can be switched on with the ignition key. If the operator stands, the spring forces the gap open and interrupts the electrical ignition circuit. The safety circuit allows the riding mower motor to continue running if the PTO is not engaged. When the parking brake is set a second switch in electrical parallel with the OPS closes. This bypasses the safety switch under the seat. If the operator stands, the parking brake switch still completes the ignition circuit.The mower blade turns only when the PTO engages. If the operator should leave the seat with the blade turning and under power, injuries could result. The mower blade would even continue spinning at full power if the machine overturned. To prevent this type of accident, engaging the PTO deactivates a connection in the original circuit and completes a second circuit in series with the OPS switch.

If the operator leaves the seat with the PTO engaged, the ignition interrupts and the machine stops. Until the PTO is off, no combination of settings will restart the mower.

John sabre ride on mower wont start have got new ignition switch,solenoid,relay switch and new battery.Turn ignition no response


Check to ensure the PTO/Mower drive is not engaged.. and the parking brake is on..

Most mowers will not crank if these are not in the right position

Most riding lawn mowers also have a kill switch under the seat... check that for proper function as well. If this switch has failed... it would kill the power.

You can use a volt ohm meter to trace the power.. it sounds as if all the right parts have been put in place as far as the basic starting circut is concerned.. yet you have another two to three switches to check for proper function.. PTO / Brake and Seat...

Check to see if you have power to the ignition switch.. then trace back to the battery to check for power there.. if your battery has plenty of power(12.4 volts).. sounds as if it should.. you need to check each of these interupt switches between the battery and the ignition. They typically kill the power to the points/actual ignition.

There are other areas to check.. poor grounds.. and bad connections are typical. a bad ground from the battery to the frame for instance.. check cable and point of connection.

Best of luck

My bet would be a saftey switch. On most riding mowers there are several switches that must be actuated before it will start. First, make sure that blades are disengaged. If there is a handle that engages and disengages them, you might try holding it in the dis-engage position in case the switch is out of adjustment. There is probably one under the seat also. This switch kills everything if you are not sitting in the seat for safety reasons. Also, make sure the parking brake is set, and the gear is in neutral, and not forward or reverse.
Hope some of this helps.
