Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.
Majority of the time when the blades are engaged and the engine dies, the seat safety switch is the culprit as the machine thinks no one is in the seat so it kills engine. I would replace this and if it still has the issue, we can troubleshoot other things, but this is #1
I would say the seat safety switch needs to be replaced then.
Yes you are correct. If you can drive machine around, seat switch should be fine. I would then start checking the PTO switch and the safety switch for the PTO next
