Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
This sounds like you have a seat safety switch that is not recognizing that you are in the seat. It is shutting the engine down when you either try to engage the mower deck or release the clutch pedal. I would check to make certain that the seat switch is making contact and if you have to you can unplug the wiring that goes to that switch and bypass it to see if it will continue to run then.
What color is the seat switch(grey or black)?
If grey you can bypass by adding a jumper wire, if black you just unplug it and do not add a jumper.
Thank you for your time it has been a pleasure to assist you. I am sorry that you feel that I am not helping you but we have to run through common troubleshooting in order to solve the issue. Based on the information that you provided I still believe that you have a seat safety switch issue. Some of those seat switches are normally open and some normally closed which can be identified by the color of the seat switch. Hence my color question and suggestion on no jumper on black switch.
