Hi all,
I tried to start my craftsman 26hp kohler engine tractor the other day and it started fine but when I realeased the brake it stalled. It starts fine but stalls whenever I do that or try to engage the blades. What's up??? Please help.

I would guess you have a bad seat switch. Because you cannot release brake or engage blades unless you are sitting in seat. If your seat switch is bad the mower thinks no one is sitting in seat even though you are..

Welcome to the forum Greg!

I'll second that theory. :)

I will check it today. I'm assuming I can bypass it by simply connecting the wires without the switch. Thanks so much for helping!
