craftsman dyt 4000 stalls when using pto
My Craftsman Tractor DYT 4000 model no. 917.2736404 stalls when I take my foot off the brake after starting; and will also stall when I attempt to engage the electric clutch for the mower. How do I figure out a way to fix this? I'm assuming this involves the safety switches. Can I bypass the safety switches temporarily to diagnose? I checked the fuse and that seems OK. I disconnected the safety switch for the brake. It won't crank . But if I disconnect after starting, it won't stall when releasing the brake. Either way it stalls when I pull the PTO switch. I disconnected the electric clutch but it still stalls when releasing the brake or pulling the switch. I'm perplexed. Thanks for your help.
