Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Seat switch, brake switch and the arm switches, and the pto switch! Any one can shut off the engine. The run circuit is not complete. The mower thanks there is no one i the seat, so it kills the engine! Try oiling the switches with WD40 and work them by hand to be sure they are not sticking.
