Your tractor has several safety switches. Look around your brake pedal and linkages. You will see a little plastic switch has 2 wires going to it unplug and put the 2 wires together if it runs switch is bad. You can replace the switch or just cut the wires and wire nut them together.

I have a sears craftsman riding lawnmower LT2000 model #917.273751 18hp intek engine 42in deck.Engine runs fine but when I release the clutch-brake pedal engine stalls.seems like an intermitent problem...


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 have a 42in cut 19.5hp automatic trans craftsman when i press the clutch/brake to start then release to drive it cuts off also if i try to engage the blades it cuts off but if i lock the clutch/brake it...


The problem is in the seat safety switch or associated wiring. Lift the seat, find the switch, and take a look for a connector that is off, a broken wire, or a loose or broken mounting for the switch. If all that seems ok, remove the switch and put tape across the plunger so it is activated. Run the mower and see if the problem is solved. If not, replace the switch - it's not expensive. Parts are available from Sears online or at their stores. You'll need the model number of your tractor. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful.

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.
