My Poulan 42 inch deck, 16.5 hp, 6 speed riding mower shuts down when I try to engage the blades. It is less than a year old. What could be wrong?

You may want to check out the safety switches. For example,on my riding mower if I lift up off the seat while the mower is running it will shut down.
Our John Deer (DON'T BUY ONE) does this also, we have to let it warm up some even if it is warm out, then it will stay running and the blades will operate ok. good luck! sometimes i have to try to start blades several times before it stops killing the engine and will go.
