This sounds like the micro switch under the seat playing up, make sure the block connecter is fully pushed home, if it still does not work, change the switch, if the machine has a relay behind the dash this could also be the cause of the problem, they are fairly cheap and just plug in, so it could be well worth changing this if the seat switch does not cure the problem.

Engine stalls when engaging deck for cutting


Try running it up on some ramps so you can get access to the underside of the deck. With the engine OFF, see if the mower blades will rotate. Use a hose and do a good clean up of the underside. Check to see if there is a blade brake on any of the pulleys and make sure that it is linked properly so that it releases when you try to engage the blades.

Poulan mower stalls when I released the brake....also stalls when I try to engage the mowing blades....any suggestions? thanks, Sonya


Hi, there is a switch under the seat that is broken or faulty which is basically telling the engine that no one is on the seat, hence the stalling issue. Fix or replace the switch and you will be mowing in no time. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

I went to go mow the lawn for the first time this season. Tractor started right up. took the deck cleaned and greased it. Went to engage the p.t.o. for the mower and the tractor stalled. Can't figure...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

The power sequence for engaging the blade deck is. Clutch brake pedal depressed, operator in seat, Enage selected and brake pedal released. When the blade enages the engine igniton kill wire is routed through the seat switch AND the PTO clutch. If either the PTO Clutch or the seat switch has a problem the engine dies. Same goes for the clutch brake pedal switch... if the clutch brake is not coming all the way up the engine will die.

If you respond with a model number (example LX2000) I can show via a manual where you need to troubleshoot using a meter.

Do a couple of good bounces on the seat, check the clutch brake pedal switch for clicks and then attempt to an engagement.

Also inspect the PTO clutch wires and connectors for corrosion.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Craftsman Model 917.259566 Tractor starts perfectly, but stalls out when the clutch is released. Whats happening?


Most likely your seat safety switch is not working. In order for the engine to run with blade engaged, the operator present switch must be made when the brake is taken off (releasing clutch).

Engine stalls when clutch/brake pedal is released


Under the seat, there is a operator presence switch, if this switch fails, the mower will shut off when the brake is released, or put in any gear.
