How to fix my craftsman riding mower, whcih dies after engaging blade


make sure blades not jammed. with mower off, try turning blades by hand.
it could either be a safety switch in the seat or for the reverse paddle.
make sure its not in reverse when you attempt to engage blades.
you should be able to bypass both switches with a jumper wire for testing purposes. if it works with jumper, replace the switch(s).

Some of the riding mowers has a safety switch under the seat so when you get off it shuts off. If it goes bad it will not start. check by bypassing the switch. For safety make sure it's in neutral. This is a long shot . But it can be eliminated as a problem after being checked.
