Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello and Welcome to Just Answers.. Lets see if we can solve this problem together.. My name is Bill.
Couple questions do you have the model number for the stander? and Have you checked all the safety switches?
It will Die even if you dont engage the blades and you lower the deck?
when you drop the deck do you kinda lean forward kinda lifting your heels a bit?
the reason i ask is because there is a safety switch below your feet its a operator safety switch.. I have seen when you move a bit the switch isnt being contacted..
so i wondered if when you drop the deck you lift up making no contact to that switch
If all seems well there is a few safety switches in the harness i would check them to make sure they are working
did you see if you move the deck up and down if it pull on anything?
