Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with your tractor. Without a model number, I am not sure which model tractor you have. I will give you basic information that covers most of our tractors. Your Tractor uses an Operator Presence (seat) switch that will cause engine to stall if blades are engaged or the brake is released without anyone on the seat. If ample amount of weight is not kept on the seat during operation or the operator is leaning forward the tractor will stall because the Operator Presence (seat) switch senses that the operator is not completely on the seat.

To check Operator Presence (seat) switch:

  1. Lift seat.
  2. Locate wires that connect to Operator Presence (seat) switch under the seat.
  3. Disconnect and clean any debris in the switch connector. Use an ohmmeter to check the switch. When the switch is not pushed, the reading should be 0 ohms (closed). When pushed it should read ol ( open load )
  4. Make sure the connector is fully seated on the seat switch. The connector is a special connector that will short the two wires if it is not fully seated.

I hope this is helpful.

Thank you for adding the model number. I looked up the wiring diagram and the information above will apply to your tractor. If you have an ohmmeter, I recommend ohming the seat switch. You should read open when the switch is depressed. If the switch reads open make sure the connector is fully seated. It will kill the engine if it is not fully seated. Please let me know if you need further assistance.
