Check the safety pressure switch under your seat. When you engage the PTO and get off the lawn mower, it will kill the engine. I had the same problem; drove me nuts. I thought it was the switch that is compressed when the PTO is engages. It wasn't. It was the safety under the seat. Bypassed and it worked fine. Ordered a new switch from a local repair shop. Good luck.

Why does my oto shut off when engaged and motor shuts off but motor will keep running if pto is turned off


You have a bad safety somewhere, heres a few places to check, your seat switch if thats bad it thinks theres no one on the the mower and it wont let you cut grass, reverse switch some mowers wont let you cut in reverse in case kids are around, brake switch which should be working since your able to turn on the mower, check your pto switch as well could be bad but my guess is the seat switch let us what you find

Engine runs, but when I engage the electric PTO why does it go dead?


Newer mowers have a safety interlock that prevents the mower running when going in reverse. My guess is that the reverse switch is on and when the PTO is activated the engine dies like you shut off the key.
Second idea is that the device the PTO drives is frozen up. Test this by trying to see if it turns with the engine off. When you engage the PTO the engine chokes down because it can't turn the PTO.

What causes mower deck to sometimes engage after PTO switch gets shut off.


Sounds like a bad connection in the wiring harness from the switch to the PTO clutch. I have a lot where the wires broken at the clutch but still make contact randomly since the insulation was still in place.

Check all connectors going from switch to PTO engagement clutch. Check ground wire from PTO. This problem is either a bad connection or a faulty electromagnetic PTO.
