Why does the engine keeps running after I turn off the key? I have a 17hp Briggs Craftsman lawn tractor model #917270711.

When I turn off the key, the engine wants to stop. However, it keeps running until I lift the seat, to engage the safety switch. It just started doing that after I installed the deck on a craftsman lawn tractor model #917.270711. It has a 17hp briggs engine.
