Engine shuts down when cutting deck engaged


This is probably due to a misadjusted or faulty safety switch on the rider's seat. There is a deadman switch there that will shut down the mower if the rider gets off the seat with the blades engaged.

Sounds like a safety interlock. Was there any electrical wires going to the deck, to the engage switch, the up down lever? There is a neutral switch that is closing or opening and the circuit is shutting down the motor.

My tractor keeps shutting off when i engage the mower blades


It would depend on what model, but could either be a deck drive problem or safety switch. With tractor off, I'd check the blades for free movement with no binding. If this is ok, then I would suspect the seat switch. The mower will not run with the deck engaged, and no operator present. It could be the seat switch is not making, so when you engage the deck it kills the motor. Test switch

My Cub Cadet i1042 tractor shuts off when the blade is engaged. This happened after I ran over a ***** and/or stump. Every time I try to engage the blade the engine shuts off.


Check for bent blade against deck housing.Possible you bent something on mowing deck,check all spindles and pulleys.You could have something hung on blade and making contact with deck. Rarely will the motor be hurt from hitting object on rider.

Mower quits when engaging mower deck of husqvarna yth 2348


Try putting a jumper wire on the wire going from the engine to the seat. Take that plug and put a wire from one side to the other. Be careful not to cut your feet off when engaging deck.
