You could have a faulty seat safety switch that is killing the engine as soon as you engage the blades. The wiring connection on that switch could also be loose. I recommend that you check that switch.

Q:

Craftsman Tractor Lawn Mower model# 917287461, While cutting grass, my safety brake is stuck and won't disengage so I can move the tractor? Simple Solution?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I recommend pushing the brake pedal all the way down. Then push the parking brake knob down and release the brake pedal. If this does not help use a little, force to push the knob down. If it releases go ahead and mow the lawn. After you are done mowing, check the operation of the brake.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.
