Engine starts idle well and sshut off when attempt engage blades


Chances are one of two sensors is broken or out of adjustment.
Either will cause engine shutdown when blades are engaged.
The first is the seat sensor. If you rise out of the seat with the blades engaged, the engine will die. That sensor is usually a switch located under the seat. The second is the Reverse lever (Or gear position). Newer tractors will shut off if operated in reverse with the blades engaged. This sensor may be more difficult to find, but it is usually another switch located around the gear shifter (or hydrostatic control lever).

Wheelhorse 314 engines dies when pto is engaged


I am assuming you have a manual PTO clutch since you did not mention a PTO switch. The starting circuit generally is a series of switches wired in line (series) with each other. You have bypassed the seat but there is usually a switch for neutral, PTO, oil level, and clutch. You will need to trace the wires from one to the other to find the problem. If the seat has a double switch (3 or 4 wires) it is wired through the PTO switch which may be a double switch to short out the ignition so that part of the circuit should stay open to operate. If the oil level is ok and the oil has been changed as recommended you may better consult a Wheelhorse service person. Bypassing the switches is for testing only! I DO NOT RECOMEND LEAVING ANY SAFETY SWITCH BYPASSED. Any defective or out of adjustment switch should be replaced or corrected.

Tractor starts and runs fine, but if I let out the clutch (even in neutral) or try to start the mower deck it dies.


I'm going to take a guess at this one. If I'm not on my seat and try to do either of those things, my machine stalls.
Check your seat safety switch.

Started up...then died as if safety switch 18HP craftsman rider


On later models there are possibly three safety switches, one under the seat, one for the blade engage mechanism or blade clutch so the blades don't turn when the mower is started, and a neutral safety switch to make sure the mower is in neutral before it starts.

Craftsman model 917.272950 lawn tractor won't start


OPERATOR PRESENCE SYSTEM
Be sure operator presence and interlock
systems are working properly, If your
tractor does not function as described,
repair the problem immediately.
• The engine should not start unless the
clutch/brake pedal is fully depressed
and attachement clutch control is in the
disengaged position.
• When the engine is running, any
attempt by the operator to leave the
seat without first setting the parking
brake should shut off the engine.
• When the engine is running and the
attachment clutch is engaged, any
attempt by the operator to leave the
seat should shut off the engine.
• The attachment clutch should never
operate unless the operator is in the
seat.

Check your seat switch and clutch switch wires be sure that the connection to each switch is making contact and the mechanism that activates the switch is actually activateing them in other words be sure the clutch is pushing the switch in and your seat switch is occupied and be sure all grounding wires a intack
especially from your battery negative to the frame.You also could have a neutral safety switch which requires your transmission to be in neural.
try these things and let us know how we can further help from more of your input.

Tractor Will Not Move And Dies When Brake Is Released


I would check the wires and clean the connectors and make sure seat switch is working. If that is not working, it's like getting off the seat without holding the brake/clutch pedal down or getting off seat with blades engaged. Both will cause engine to die.
