Hi,
Sounds like the float is bad - what happens is the float sits just a little off and when you add the demand of more fuel it skewers the RPM by starving the engine.
Try removing the carburator and either adjusting the float by bending the tab or replace it. As part of this repair i suggest you just replace the needle and seat as well if they are over a year old.

Thanks,
Gary @ Fix Ya

Sounds to me that your pto clutch has a wire rubbing , usually it is shorted close to the clutch

I have a newer John Deere LT150 that runs fine at times and then seems to flood while you are mowing. If you pull the fuel line off of the filter and drain the gas it will start and run till it runs out of fuel. When you hook up the fuel line again it seems to run ok for a while, but will eventually flood again. Any ideas? I've changed the filter, and coil already. No luck.

Where is the safety switch to engage the blade


Your lawn tractor will have a lever that raises and lowers the mower deck which houses the two cutting blades. By lowering your mower deck to the desired cutting height, the blades should automatically engage. By raising the deck back to it's highest position, the blades will automatically disengage. Should be simple enough. You can consult your mower manual. If you don't have one, you can easily find it online using the make, model and year of the lawn tractor.

Blowing fuses


try unplugging the pto, starting the mower and then engaging the blades. If it still blows a fuse the problem lies in the mowers wiring. If not the problem is the pto. Hope this helps

When cutting with pto on and going into reverse and forward again the pto cuts off


That is a safety feature. When the blades are engaged and you go into reverse, they will shut off until you get out of reverse and turn the blades on again.
