Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !!

Does it cut out and quit or does it just lose power?

If it is loosing power, loosen the spark plug wires, then with engine idling, pull one plug wire off at a time. The engine can be firing only on one cylinder.

wrong diagnosis for this electrical issue
Expert:  RUSS replied 4 years ago.
Hi, this is Russ,! I will give you the benefit of 28 years experience and teaching. Does it die when you go to move??? If so you ahve a break in the safety switch harness or it is rubbing and grounding on the frame. You have to inspect the wire harness from ignition switch on through all switches etc. It can be a disconnected or broken switch. There are switches at the motion drive, the blade drive, and seat.
