If the mower has sat with fuel in the tank, fuel is probably bad. Drain ALL existing fuel in tank, apply fresh fuel. Then see what happens. Have had this happen to me many times, not only w/mowers, but chain saws, edgers, etc. Worked just fine after dumping bad fuel then using fresh gas. Got 'em all going. Let us know if this was your problem.

Mower cranks and runs fine but when I release brake pedal, it dies. I have check all safety switches and they all have continuity when they are suppose to

Sounds like your seat switch isn't working. Operator presence (seat switch activated) is required when the brake is released & pro is engaged or your engine will shut down.

My poulan riding lawnmower dies when I release brake pedle why

Sounds like there is a short in the seat safety switch making the unit think your not on the seat. Check the connections under the seat when you flip it up there should be wires and a pressure switch.

Lawnmower dies when I put it in gear, why

Sounds like a safety switch somewhere.. Check the seat switch first, that is what happened to mine. Does it smoke the belt and stop? or just cuts off when you release the brake? If when letting out on brake, pretty sure it is the seat safety.

Engine dies when brake is released.

You have a problem with a safety interlock. I'm betting it's the operator presence safety seat switch. To check if it is the seat switch:
  1. Unplug the seat switch.
  2. Jumper the seat switch wiring harness plug receptacles.
  3. Start your tractor & release the brake. If the tractor stays running, replace the seat switch.

Simplicity mower stalls when brake released

There is another safety switch connected to the parking/service brake. Check that one too. Sounds like its the one.
