Troy bilt

I have a Troy bilt tractor with a14hp Briggs and Stratton motor. Recently I have been unable to kill the motor with the key and now when I hit the switch to engage the mower the motor dies instantly. Any suggestion welcome.

    What model is the Troy bilt, engine #s would also be helpful.
    On the key not shutting off engine, break or disconnect in kill wire or faulty ignition switch.

    Several different things can cause the mower to die when engaging the blades. You said switch so I am guessing a pto switch for electric PTO/clutch?

    I would start by making sure blades turn freely.
    Battery may be faulty/weak, takes more power to engage electric clutch.
    You could also ohm out the electric clutch.
    May also not be receiving enough fuel.

    I have tried engaging the pto with the belt to the blades unhooked. Same result-motor dies immediately.

    It definitely sounds like the switch has gone south.

    test the ignition switch. also try turning the on the key. don't start it and engage the pto switch. then push it back down if you hear a click that means the switch is good. then test the ignition switch by removing it. test to see if you hear a beep by continuity testing it.

    Is there an output shaft bearing? The mandrill(sp?) may need replaced.
