MTD Yard machine start but stop and wont start again

Richard S Hi,

I have a 1999 yard machine garden tractor that I bought used. For the last two weeks, I have been having problems with it. If I go and start the mower now, it will run and idle for as long as its on, but if I put it in drive, it runs for a few minutes then cuts off, however if I work the clutch, it sometimes starts back up. If it cuts off by it self, it doesnt want to restart. It acts as if the battery is dead, but if i wait about 15 minutes, it starts back up okay. I put the batter charger on it when it wont start and the meter read 12 volts, so the battery is definitely okay. I'm figureing it has something to do with the clutch, that prevents it from starting. Any help anyone can provide would be greatly apreciated.

Thanx much

Rich
