There is an operator presence switch under the is more than likely faulty and must be replaced in order for the mower to run right.

SOURCE: Mower will not stop when clutch is depressed

When you replaced the belt you either got a shorter belt or you have rerouted the belt wrong. You might try and get an original; belt and replace the one on the tractor. Good Luck-David

John deere 717a shut-off while mowing

Mine took a Poo this evening. It's a 717A Z turn and it's run just fine for 4 years but tonight it kinda Popped (like something broke) while under a slight load and then shut off. Oil level was slightly low and curious if I blew the engine. It still cranks just fine but won't fire off? Acts like it's not getting fuel but the filters are all clear and fuel flows. It's my Church's mower and the Blue hairs are gonna kill me if I blew the engine.............I'm toast!

I borrowed my Brothers Tecumseh Yard Machine Push Mower to mow my lawn but the pull cord wont pull. Is there a saftey or something i dont know about ?

There is a little bar up by the handle that you have to pull back toward the handle, this is the dead man lever. When released it will stop the mower by grounding out the ignition coil and braking the engine.

If this is not the problem, then let me know.

I hope this helps.

Mower died while mowing and will not start back. has gas in it, does,nt look like it,s getting spark at plugs.

It sounds like your kill switch is grounding out.. What type of engine is it? how old is it?

Starting Craftsman model 917.270430 riding mower.

There's a safety shut-off switch below the seat, so when you're seated the switch is engaged. If you were to fall off the mower, the engine and Blades stop (safety feature).
Check the switch to see if it's operational.
Beyond that, mower may need a tune up or servicing, if it is not starting.
