    Default ride-on mower keeps dying

    G'day all,

    Hope someone can help. I have a Husqvarna LT1536



    It starts no problem but the moment I take my foot off the clutch it dies. Any thoughts? It does this in neutral and in gear.



    Under the hood



    Thx

    DaveTTC

    Check your air filter fuel filter spark plug lead first

    Try it with out the air filter .
    Also the spark plug are you getting a nice fat spark of it ? if you take it out and ground it against the engine while turning it over .
    Is the carby fuel bowl dirty

    tried without air filter and still same issue. Not sure where the carbi is but somewhere after the filter im sure. I will have to try and get onto that tomorrow and check it out. did not turn the motor with spark out as it sounds perfectly fine with the clutch pressed in I figured assumed it must not be a spark problem?

    What I dont understand is why this happens even in neutral

    It maybe the spark is strong enough at idle but not under load
    Also is there a loose wire anywhere shorting out
    Is there anything to do with a break safety switch
    (Is there a switch under the brake clutch petal)

    Hi,
    May be a seized input shaft/bearing in the gear box.
    Not good.
    Regards
    Hugh

    Enough is enough, more than enough is too much.

    Hi Dave, I'd love to help you out but I'm a lousy mechanic and an even worse gardener.
    Can I suggest sheep?

    Do you have to purge your transmission? If so maybe this will help.

    If not that, I'm lost!
