It sounds like the seat safety switch is the problem. Tilt up the seat and make sure the plug to the seat switch isn't loose or off completely, and that the switch is firmly mounted. If everything seems ok, remove the switch and test it with a multimeter. The circuit between the switch terminals should close when you press in the button. If not, replace it. Good luck!

There is an "anchor" that bolts to the chassis, and it has a rod-like part that sticks up to engage a notch in the PTO clutch to keep it from spinning. Look here -- there are parts diagrams for your mower (find the right model number) that will help a lot. Good luck!

What would cause my craftsman zero turn to die when i engage the blades?


First, sort out between two possibilities: 1. The safety system is killing the engine -- for example, if the seat switch is faulty or misadjusted, the engine ignition is killed when you activate the blade engagement switch. 2. The blades, spindles, or belts are binding or stuck, which would "drag" the engine to a stop. I suggest you remove the belt that drives the mower from the engine. If the engine still dies when you engage the blade switch, it's problem #1. Check all connections, and check the seat switch with an ohmmeter. If the engine does not die, then you have mechanical drag. With engine off and the belts taken off, turn each spindle to find out if one is frozen or binding. Good luck!
