There are several safety switches which are all tied into a central relay which defeats the starting and kills the running, unless they are all in the correct safe running position. a lot of craftsman mowers have that same exact let out the clutch problem and it is related to a failure in one of those parts.once you get that issue resolved, the other issue may resolve itself.

Why murray riding mower wont crank when being jumped off


Some mowers have safety switches that unless you are sitting on the seat and the clutch pushed in they will not start. Not sure if this is the answer.

Why does the motor on my craftman riding mover stall when I let out clutch/brake?


Drive belt conditions? Wrong belt installation. Mower assembly will not turn by hand, so there are bearing and engine load problems? Clutch doesn't like the brake to be on?
Owner's manual trouble shooting? no manual

Check for voltage at the electric pto clutch connector if 12 +volts is there when the switch is on then the clutch is bad; otherwise, you need back through the wiring to find the problem.

Tractor shuts off when clutch is engaged craftman 22 hp 50" mower


Hello,

I had the same problem. My problem was something was preventing the blades from spinning, so the 1st thing you can do is check to make sure your blades turn, and test this while the mower is off.

While it is a pain, you can also take the deck out and check to see if this help and you are able to freely turn the blades. If everything is working properly, you should be able to turn the blades by hand.

In my case, I has a stick jammed into the belts and pulley, so when I would engage the blade, it would cause my mower to stall when it tried to engage the belt.

Hope this helps.

The mower will stall when I lift my foot off the brake.


If you have a gear transmission,you have some safety switches. One under the seat. One on the clutch -brake pedal. These switches work together to prevent accidental injury. One may have disconnected or a wire frayed. If one switch has failed it will shut the mower off.
