MTD lawn tractor will start but dies after 3 seconds no matter where speed control is moved or left, choke adjusted, etc. First starting after 5 months.

If your fuel valve fully ON? Is there dirt in the tank? Is the filter clean? These are the the first things you should check.

2003 craftsman ys4500 model number917 276680 died

Mine did same thing, need to manually adjust choke. If you raise hood and adjust your throttle you will see that when you press up to choke that it actually hits & pushed in choke. But when you back off if it is like mine the choke doesn't come off, so I manually pulled choke to off & mine started right up. I am still trying to find how or where cable came off for the choke to be adjusted by throttle lever. That is why I was on here looking for photo of engine.

Riding mower having problems starting then runs roughly

I would bet you have a fuel problem. Either the carb is clogged and dirty or needs adjustment. Try opening the screw on the bottom of the carbuerator about a half turn see if that improves it. Also check the air filter and clean it.

Mower starts, but when I let off clutch, it dies.

Grass and debris clogg the switch mechinisms, safety interlocks are sometimes a pain to diagnose but I would first look at the seat interlock, the petal switch and ffinally then the mowing deck.
