If you bought it new, then you most likely need to get a new seat switch. Sears carries parts for just about everything back to when they were selling dinosaur shoes. You can check the switch with a simple ohmmeter. Weight on seat closed or open and weight off seat the other condition. If the switch works and is wired in, then you need to chase the wiring down to the central relay where all the safety switches connect. If you bought it used a prior owner could have defeated the switch as an annoyance.

Have a craftsman EZ3 917.272121 mower engine e stalls when blade switch is pulled


If you are sitting on the tractor seat and the engine stalls when engaging the PTO mover blades I would check the switch under the seat.

This seat has a saftey switch to assure that the operator is in a safe location before engaging the the blades. Also if the blades are engaged and the operator leaves the seat the blades will stop. If a young rider with insufficient weight the blades will not engage.

Every time I use the lever to get the blades started it kills the engine. it does it even after i removed the belt. what is causing the blade rotation lever to kill the engine?


hi there talane

sounds like you have a safety switch problem

try disconnecting seat switch and retry if works could be wire grounding some where or faulty switch then try fitting a jump wire to seat switch wire connector then retry then check blade engagement switch may be playing up or a nuetral switch playing up but more likely a seat switch

with operator off seat and park brake on engine runs, but with pk brake off and operator off seat
engine stops , same if operator leaves seat and blades engages -engine stops,

if unit not in nuetral and pk brake not on unit wont start


take look

hope it helps

16 hp craftsman mower will not run when I release the brake?


does the engine run until you release the brake? if so look at the seat switch it is supposed to kill the engine if you get off with the mower in gear.

Starting Craftsman model 917.270430 riding mower.


There's a safety shut-off switch below the seat, so when you're seated the switch is engaged. If you were to fall off the mower, the engine and Blades stop (safety feature).
Check the switch to see if it's operational.
Beyond that, mower may need a tune up or servicing, if it is not starting.

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.

Craftsman 18.5 briggs/str 42''


flop the seat forward, push the connector firmly onto the seat switch [in the middle of the seat underside], should solve your problem, or the switch could be bad, but not likely unless you're 300lbs
