Dies when let oout on clutch. will run fine otherwise. cant find any problems with belts


Check the seat switch. When you let out the clutch, if the seat switch isn't making, the mower thinks no one is in the seat.

Where is the part located that shuts the mower off when you release the clutch


There is a safety switch for the brake clutch and if the seat safety switch is not activated by someone sitting on it, then the mower will die. So if you are sitting in the seat and the brake clutch is released and the seat safety is faulty then the engine dies, so the seat safety is where you should start looking.

Mower will not drive


Usually, that's an indication the the seat switch is not working. It's like getting off the seat without locking down the parking brake or getting off the seat with the baldes engaged, same result...engine dies.
