craftsman mower

I have a craftsman 42" Kohler Pro 16 OHV mower, I replaced the 15 amp fuse because it would not start. Now it runs fine until you put it in gear and let off the clutch. As soon as you start to let off clutch it goes dead. Just wondering what I could check that might take care of the problem.

Likely the seat switch.
If you engage the blades the same should happen. You may be able to test it depending on the switch or just replace it.

Generally you can push the connector on tighter and it will work again. I have seen some cable-strapped tight so they don't work loose again.
