Check the seat switch and the brake switch and their harness connections. The mower thinks there is no one in the seat and cuts off the unit. The seat switch , brake switch, and pto switch all have to complete the run circuit. This is the one that is not complete. I am assuming the deck is free to turn and is not loading the engine and stalling it .
