Self propelled poulan poulanpro mower wii not shut off when released why?

The ground switch on top of the carb is not grounding the coil when you release the blade brake. Release the blade brake slowly to avoid shearing the fly wheel key. Look for a black 16 Ga. wire at the blade brake cable near the carb. That is the shut off switch. Try blowing the switch with compressed air to clear grass and trash from the switch contacts

Model 40808X14A. When blades are engaged, why does mower die?

Most likely something is jamming a blade.
Another possibility is the reversing safety switch is stuck which cuts the engine spark.

What would cause the PTO not to disengaged the blades from turning?

A faulty switch if the blades are spinning at full cutting speed
Not cutting the current to the engaged blade clutch so the blades are stil on even when the switch is in the off position.
The blade brakes not gripping the pulleys fully to stop blades so anything brushing against the blade will start them spinning
Or the clutch medium is damaged and is not releasing the blades fully so they spin but slowly when you switch the switch they just slow down get the deck alignment switch for clutch and the wireing to the blades system checked and the braking system for the blades pulleys checked as soon as possible the machine is dangerous
With the blade continuously rotating you risk injury from the blades catching.g you or someone else who's not aware the blades don't stop.etcetera.

Blade brake dosen't work right away when switch is released. Takes a couple seconds of slow spin then the brake seems to stop the brake. Suggestions?

All blade brakes take a moment to stop the blade. If it were to engage as soon as the switch were released the inertia of the blade would do damage to the saw. Look at videos of your saw on youtube to ensure it is operating the same as others.

Blade continues to spin after turn off

I don't know the make or model of your saw but the blade brake on circular saws is controlled by the power switch. If your saw previously did brake the blade rotation, you need a new switch to make it work again. Also a generic switch will not do, you have to have the brake switch made for your saw or it will do the same thing.

Brakelight stays on

You need to identify which brake light switch is sticking, simply unplug one switch at a time to determine the problem. It is possible that a brake light wire is chaffed and causing a problem but the most likely suspect is are the brake light switches. You can use a volt ohm meter to see if the switch circuits open and close when the brakes are applied.

It sounds like the seat switch is not working. This switch must be made by a person sitting in the seat for the brake to be released or for the blades to be engaged. It is possible to start the mower with the switch open.

The blade is turning backwards

That is physically not possible!

1. immediatelly switch off saw
2. remove cord from the plug
3. remove blade from machine
4. reverse blade 180degree and install it in direction of the rotation! if you look at saw from the blade side, rotation is clockwise!!! and cutting edge of teh teeth should point clockwise!
5. install and tighten the blade
6. plug in and switch in short burst only, check if it is rotating in proper direction and blade have teeth in proper direction
7. make test cut

Do not forget that this is not a toy, blade on circular saw cut through wood, metal and your fingers... always wear googles or eye/face protection shield, you have only two eyes and no spares...

Enjoy your woodworking experience! Always observe safety and machine rules.

Hope this allow you to fix the problem. Please leave note how did you go.

Tail chop performed, brake light doesn't work


Offhand, in most bikes, the tailight and the brake light are integrated in a single bulb with a common ground. This would translate then into a 3wire arrangement. The brighter of the filaments is for the brake while the dimmer of the two is for the park/running/tail light. To my knowledge, either the tail or brake lights do not use a relay, they are wired straightforward. Your described problem all points to a mis-connection, possibly the ground wire. The easiest approach would be to identify the ground wire. With ignition switch off, all light switches off, identify the ground wire with the use of a continuity tester (VOM/DVM). Disconnect the wires to the harness, on the harness, it would be the wire with nearly 0 resistance against any exposed metal or the chassis. On the wires going to the tailight assy, it wold be the wire that measures 0 ohms to the metal socket/housing of the bulb.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
