Question about Craftsman 24 Hp 48" Deck Yard Tractor

1 Answer

I have a Craftsman DLT2000 20 hp 48 inch lawn tractor. Engine starts fine but when I release the brake the engine shuts down. The troubleshooting section in my owners manual shows a switch on the clutch/brake assembly but I have not been able to locate it to run a test.

There are other safety switches as well. The electrical diagram shows (2) of the interlock switches (part no. 16 in diagram) in the electrical system. The location of the 2nd one could be on the transmission or the clutch/brake pedal. It could also be on the PTO system (blade actuator if you will). See if you can find the other switch on your unit. I have an LT1000 and have NOT looked for them. Here is an electrical diagram on your unit.

I was using my sears craftsman riding mower yesterday and it was working fine...no issues whatsoever. I stopped the engine to get something and when I went to re-start it, the engine turned over just fine,...


You should check the seat safety switch,it may have stuck or is unplugged or it needs to be replaced.Any other safety switch that is unplugged or defective would keep it from starting.

Idles fine, shuts down when release brake.


It could be the brake switch bad, if this model came with one. When it is depressed it will start, but when it is released it may not be switching to stay running.

Craftsman 15.5 HP, 42" deck. Engine shuts down when brake/clutch is released.


Check that the seat switch is functioning, pull the seat up and put a paperclip in the switch and try it that way if it works then you need to replace the safety seat switch.

Tractor Will Not Move And Dies When Brake Is Released


I would check the wires and clean the connectors and make sure seat switch is working. If that is not working, it's like getting off the seat without holding the brake/clutch pedal down or getting off seat with blades engaged. Both will cause engine to die.
