Sounds like someone has been working on the wiring, probably trying to bypass the reverse cut out switches . If you follow your steer control lever down under the plastic console covers there will be a switch, one on each steer lever by where it hinges. I don't think the switch is bad because it would not work at all if it was.It is like a door bell switch, when you pull back on the steer control lever it pushes it in and disconects the circuit to the PTO switch and the blades quit until you push them forwards and lets the curent through again. Also check the push pull PTO switch .Every safety switch on the tractor will meet at that switch and plug into it, . That model cub RZT50 has to have the worst switches ever made, but they are available and cheap on ebay.

Remove fuel line from entry side of filter, after shutting off fuel. Turn the fuel on, see if there is fuel flow to the filter. If there is insufficient flow. There is trash blocking the discharge port in your fuel tank. If there is fuel flow at the entry of the filter, repeat the same steps for the outlet of the filter. if no flow replace the filter. if fuel flow is ok, you have a bad fuel pump or The fuel pump is powered by Vacuum you may have a loss of vacuum to the fuel pump.
Check your oil..... If solenoid sticks open fuel will continue to run when engine is off and will fill up crankcase with fuel. This a cheap way to fix this problem. Go to a shop or parts store and buy a fuel shut off valve, like on a snow blower. Find fuel line then install. But always remember to shut off after use or you will have same problem.
The blades on this cub cadet are activated with air pressure. Chances are that when you hit that stump, you either blew a fuse or the control module that allows the blades to spin. Begin by checking the fuses. J.
I don't think the starter solenoid is involved here. T
There should be a fuel shut off solenoid on the bottom of the carburetor which shuts off fuel when the ignition is turned off -- this is a safety feature as well as protection from damaging backfiring.
This fuel shut off solenoid could be stuck open.
There is a switch under the seat which opens and closes the solenoid depending on whether the seat is occupied. This switch as well as the ignition switch control the solenoid.
