Q:

Engine wants to stall? 917270740 Craftsman 17.0hp 42

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the tractor stalling. I know how frustrating that is.

This definitely sounds like an issue with one of the safety switches. You could have a loose or dirty connection, or one of the switches are in need of replacement. One switch is for the brake/clutch, one for the blade engagement, and the other is the seat switch. I would start by cleaning the contacts and make sure the connection is secure. If that doesn't help, the switches will need to be checked for continuity with a meter. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
