SOURCE: runs until clutch is disengaged

I have the same problem with mine, I have ascertianed that the seat is not the problem, I am starting to think it is the break safty switch . Mind will shutoff if you let out on the brake or try to engage the baldes.

SOURCE: the engine start running rough when pto in engaged.

An air filter can look clean and not be. Remover the air filter and pre filter and try again. If engine smooths out, you need a new air filter.

SOURCE: swisher 44" mower starts and runs but engine bogs

The engine in this machine seems to be powerful. If you can remove the belt from the pulley that drives the blade. Try turning the pulley buy hand. If it turns tight or not at all this is your problem. The unit that is the pulley to blade assembly is seized or ready to seize. Sometimes they are designed to be taken apart and repaired, and sometimes they are not. Did you check for a grease fitting within the pulley to blade unit?
I would like to hear how this works out for you. Best of luck.

SOURCE: the 12.5 murray 38 in

The problem is in the carb. First try using some bottled fuel system cleaner at a heavier dose than for a car, but be aware that too much may damage the carb. Then run the fuel out and fill with fresh and try again. When you engage blades and it sputters try to throttle down until it runs smooth and then slowly bring engine back up to mowing speed. You should be able bring it up and mow. Run out the fuel tank. If unable to do this trick and get the fuel system cleaner through you will need to have the carb. taken apart and cleaned thoroughly.

SOURCE: blade engagement lever won't disengage

If this is a manual engagment system all the lever does is to pull a jockey wheel into the back of the belt to tention it thus starting the blades to turn, so either the cable is jammed that pulls the jockey wheel in, or the jockey wheel arm is seized and needs freeing off to allow the jockey to to move to the relaxed position.

Blades wont disengage completely


The lever has worn out....thus it is not locking up immediately when fully disengaged. You'll need to trace down the lever right down to the blade mechanism and then you'll notice a fork shaped part that shows signs of wear....very common on craftsman riding mowers.

Stalls When engaging the blade clutch


Check that the blade brake is disengaging. Slip belt off blade spindles and check that they spin freely. Check underside of deck for clogged grass, ropes, wire, etc.

Cutting blades won't disengage


Check you blades to see if one is bent. Do this with the mower NOT RUNNING and the KEY OUT of THE IGNITION! Look under the deck to see if one is bent. This will cause the wobble. As far as no disengaging your electric clutch could be bad. The bearing could have seized up.

Engine slows down with blades are engaged?


sounds like the blade spindles are binding, many have Zerk fittings to grease them. with belt disengaged try turning the pulleys they should turn easily and have no wobble in them. if either is wrong replace spindle and best to change in sets. this is the most common issue.

I have a Kraftsman 91.5 42 inch cut model #


Safety switch at seat or reverse. Mower will cut of when blades are engaged if you get off the seat or put into reverse. Check these switches for stuck on, damaged, disconnected, or just plain broke. Good luck.

Lots of smoke when I engaged stuck blades - now runs roughly


Most likely what you did was burn one or more spots on the belt. When the blades and belt stop turning, like in tall grass, the engine doesn't stop and will burn flat spots on the belt at the engine pulley. Every time the flat spot hits a pulley, it will jump and can set up a bad vibration. Run your hand around the sides of the belt or take it off and you will feel or see the thin spot(s) on it. Replace belt.
