Riding mower clutch & brake issues

Craftsman riding mower 917.273090. Need help troubleshooting a clutch sticking and brake not engaging problem. Sometimes when I push the clutch/brake pedal down to shift gears the pedal stays down when I release it. I can put my foot under it and pop it up but that throws the mower into gear abrubtly. What causes this & how do I fix it?


Another issue is that sometimes when I try to engage the parking brake it appears to be engaged but the mower will still coast. These two issues may or may not be connected.
