Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.

Will your engine die, if you attempt to engage your blade? This is only a troubleshooting question.

I am not even able to get to that point to see if that happens-when I take my foot off the brake the motor dies
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Okay. Many times when this problem occurs, your seat safety switch is at fault. Check to make sure the wires are securely attached to your seat safety switch.

wires are tight also when iengage emerceny brake it slowly eb comes out &moter dies
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Let's try something. Remove the wires from your seat safety switch, and try your mower again.

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Hello Bill. Thanks you for checking. I would like for you to try something else for me. Disconnect the two yellow wires again. Depress your c/b pedal, and lock your parking brake. Start your engine, and try engaging your blades. Let me know if your blades will start up, and continue to spin.
