Q:

Stalling 917250560 Craftsman Lawn, tractor

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

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 added a link to the Owner's Manual if needed. 

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

A:

Robert: I assume the engine will not stay running when you release the brake. If this is true, the problem will likely be in the safety circuit. The seat switch is the most common cause. If the engine stalls without letting off the brake, the problem could be fuel related or the fuel solenoid is losing the 12 volt power source. I will be happy to assist you further as more details come available.
