SOURCE: garden tractor shuts down when you PTO on or release brake

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.

SOURCE: release clutch/ brake pedal engine stops / as well

Hi Carl,

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.

Best regards
Mike

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.

Starting procedure


Terry: According to eHow.com:

"
  • Put on a pair of safety glasses. Remove the fuel cap from the Weed Eater and set it aside. Fill the fuel tank with unleaded gasoline that has been mixed with quality 2-stroke oil in a 40:1 ratio. Replace the fuel cap.
  • Move the Weed Eater to a safe place and lay it flat on the ground. Depress the fuel bulb located beneath the carburetor approximately six times to prime the engine. Press it slowly so that fuel has adequate time to traverse the fuel line.
  • Slide the handlebar-mounted engine "On/Stop" switch to the "On" position. Slide the choke lever beneath the fuel tank to the "Full" position.
  • Depress the "Throttle Lock" lever located beside the engine "On/Stop" switch. Keeping the lever depressed, squeeze the throttle trigger. Release the throttle lock. This sequence holds the trigger in the depressed position, which aids in starting the Weed Eater.
  • Roll the Weed Eater so that it is resting on the engine and the trimmer head shield only. This will allow the spinning trimmer head to avoid contact with the ground. Brace the Weed Eater by holding it to the ground with one hand. Using your other hand, pull the starter rope quickly until the engine begins to run. Do not pull the rope more than a dozen times. If it fails to start by then, squeeze the throttle trigger and continue to pull until the engine starts.
  • Allow the Weed Eater to warm up for about 15 seconds, then slide the choke lever to the "Off" position. Let the trimmer run for another minute without touching the throttle lever. After the Weed Eater has warmed up, squeeze the throttle trigger once to disengage the throttle lock. The trimmer is now operational.

    Craftsman Model 917.259566 Tractor starts perfectly, but stalls out when the clutch is released. Whats happening?


    Most likely your seat safety switch is not working. In order for the engine to run with blade engaged, the operator present switch must be made when the brake is taken off (releasing clutch).

    Engine dies


    I would think more than likly your seat switch is bad. Try disconnecting the switch, do not jump, and see if it works ok. If not, then jump the switch.
    Depending how old the tractor is, the switch can work either way.
    Good luck, let me know.
