You have a safety switch or a relay malfunctioning. Try going to www.partsdirect.com, this is sears website. Look at the diagram to see how many safety switch on this unit. You may get lucky and replace one or you may have to replace all. I would look to see if it has a safety relay first, try replacing that first.

Just had this happen to me. The mower had sat all winter. During that time a couple bearings froze up.
It took a pipe wrench to free them up.
I worked in some oil and that solved it.
You need to check each pulley and bearing to see if you can spin it. If you can't, oil it first, then try to **** it free.
Once it lets go, a little more oil and you are all set.

Sounds like the operator present seat switch is not working. You can run the motor out of the seat, but not with the blades engaged. You didn't list what model, but usually hte seat switch is connected to the negative side of the battery, and grounds out the magneto, so you can't test it to ground. Put your tester on 12+ battery, and then to both sides of the seat switch. There is usually 4 terminals on seat switch. Some moodels have grey wires for the mageneto circuit, you can tell by whatever color also goes to the clutch switch too.
