Craftsman YTS3000 Rider Troubles

The tractor has a Briggs and Stratton 21 Hp engine. I was running the tractor the other day with no blades engaged or hauling anything. I lifted off the seat slightly and it backfired. Right after that it started running horribly. It kind of sputters like it is running out of gas but it is not. If i throttle down at all the engine shuts off. If anyone could give some suggestions before I contact a repair shop I would be extemely greatful.

The backfire could have upset something in the carb, causing your problems, or you might just check the spark plugs. It could be that a piece of carbon came loose and is in the gap or the insulator broke.
