I have a Howard Price 360Z mower.
Last time while I was mowing, the engine just dies. I had been mowing for about an hour. I shut off the blade, turn off the key and set the brake. I open the seat compartment thinking it was the seat switch. Got back on and it started right up.
after mowing a strip, it did it again. Repeated the process several more times before I limped it back to the garage.
Thinking it was the seat switch that was arcing by the seat bouncing up and down, I replaced the seat switch. I mowed again today and after an hour and a half, if cut out again.
I didn't get off this time but only disengaged the blade and set the brake. Started up after a little cranking. Mowed another strip and then it died. Repeated the process. When it started to die while mowing this time, I pushed it the blade disengage switch, it sputtered, but did not die. I mowed a few yards, it started to die, but this time pushing the mower button didn't help. It died again.
It sounds like an electrical problem. Has this happened on any zero turn?
