Question about Craftsman 42 in. Deck 19.5hp Lawn Tractor
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Take a look at the pedal switch wiring. Also check the foot switch to make sure it is NOT grounding when you ease the pedal to it's normal resting position. This is the most common problem however..... Underneath in the clutch area make sure that the clutch wires are not grounded. There is a diode in the PTO clutch and if the diode fails it will present this symptom. Read the Black to Purple stripe wire on the clutch in BOTH directions. One way it should read open the other way it should read like a wire. Most of the time it the blade is engaging and the mower dies it is either the foot switch or a wire in the PTO Clutch area that is grounded.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
