Hi, my name is ***** *****'re having trouble today.I will do my best to assist you in resolving your issue.

Click here to view your mower,,you can scroll through all parts,,,zoom in/out,,see how everything goes together.

You either have a bad seat switch or a relay stuck on control board.
Lift up seat and disconnect one of the wires on seat switch,,if motor dies you need a new switch,,if motor does not die you need control board.(PC BOARD) Page 3 of diagram shows seat switch and board.

It would not hurt anything to keep using as long as you know motor won't shut ff getting off seat,,most people by pass them anyway.
Its up to you.

Any questions or problems let me know I'm happy to assist.
