mower deck will not engage when the PTO switch is turned on?

When the PTO switch is turned on the mower deck does not come on. I have replaced the PTO switch but it still does nothing. Could the electric clutch be bad?

I have the same problem. When I engage PTO switch mower blades wont turn. I hard wired from battery to electric clutch and mower blades came on, so that I know its not my clutch or adjustment. Replaced switch and it still didn't work. Please help.

There's a yellow wire hanging under the front of my scott riding mower. The desk isnt engaging. I've changed the pot switch. Now the yellow wire has power to it. But I dont know where it goes. Someone cut it.

I'm having the same issues, every time I engage PTO switch, I blow the fuse and mower shuts down.

I replaced the pto switch and the same thing happened. So i disengaged the pto clutch connection (yellow insulated wires ) or harness and I can pull PTO and she doesn't blow any fuse and she stays running????? This is a Scott's 2048. And the clutch smells like it's burning up and is throwing small shards of metal and plastic. I just want someone knowledgeable to confirm electric clutch needs replacing because they are about $300.

Chris, first try to adjust the clutch. I attached some images from the manual. check the wiring. If the wiring does not reveal any problem and a clutch adjustment does not resolve it, it may be time to replace the clutch. Also check on here. Hope this helps, good luck.

My charging system was not working correctly. The battery was too weak to engage the blades. Tired of charging the battery often and no time to work on the mower, I purchased a 1.5W solar trickle charger from Harbor Freight for $14 that I leave connected.

My battery now keeps a full charge and have not had any starting or blade problems for 6 months.

I had mine on the charger for several days before I serviced it. I like to fully charge it after putting it back into the mower. I take it out in the winter and put it on a maintain setting for the winter. It had 13.8 volts when I moved it into the shop from the storage shed, and was running 14.0 approx when running at an idle. Does anyone know what the voltage at the harness should be? (the disconnect beside the engine going to the clutch?) I have hard a weak battery before, and agree, the clutch didnt engage then.

My pto clutch kicks in blades turn and they shut off does it need adjustments Sears ridwr5

Thank you Low Charge !! You saved me from buying and installing an unnessacary clutch. Tested the switch and was certain it was the clutch even though I had jumped the battery to get it started. Just need a kick in the pants to open my eyes.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I see you have fixed your problem but FYI to anyone reading this, I had the same issue with the mower not engaging and found the normally open contact on the mower deck engage button was bad. it was around $30 bucks to replace the button. I Needed a continuity checker to test and find this issue.

My zero turn turned the bades on while I was going down the road. And now they wont shut off. And when I do shut off the mower it is hard to crank. Then the blades come on again, any sugestions

von

Bad switch, or wires are switched on pro switch. Meaning on is off, and off is on. Try this first. Check safety switch . What kind of mower do you have. I truly believe your switch is shot or the off /on switch are reversed. Let me know if it helped

I had the same problem... I found one of the wires had rubbed of the plastic coating near the clutch and was grounding out. I put a shrink wrap tube on it and rerouted the wire from where it was rubbing. Haven't had a problem since.

g'day every one,this may sound a bit unsafe but before you go and get a new PTO switch,or a new clutch, hot wire the clutch, run it to a on/off switch(you have to put the switch on your self)leave your PTO switch off(down not up) start the mower turn the new switch(hot wire) on and leave PTO switch off,if deck works you can mow even in reverse but rember the switch keeps the deck going all the time till you switch it off .then you can have a lecky check your wiring as it won't be your clutch,but you can get your lawn cut.

Husqvarna RX5424 Last year we had some issues with it not wanting to start, but it was the seat switch out of place, and

Kept blowing the fuse under the seat. Its fine now and starts and runs fine.

However, the PTO will not engage. I’ve traced the wires to the pto clutch and switch,

and everything looks fine.

Can you give me some ideas of things to look at?

Is there a fuse or circuit breaker?

It will not start with the PTO engaged (good), but that tells me that there is a good connection somewhere.

I unplugged the switch and plugged it back in.

I unplugged the harness by the engine and cleaned it, it looks good.

Doesn’t look like any other broken wires.

Could it be that seat switch acting up again only not letting PTO start?

I think I will try to hard wire the PTO clutch harness and see if it engages then? Then it has to be a safety switch or PTO switch?

Battery= Perfect. Ordered switch. The old one worked and then quit again. I got new switch, but before I installed it, I hot wired it, it worked again, w the old switch, it worked.

Wouldn’t work with new switch.

SO, I traced wires to the back again, and the stupid, bad, poor design connector in the back wasn’t making good connection. Cleaned them all, taped them all up, works perfect. The short little adapter pigtail harness from the machine to the PTO connector, and it was shorting out. Installed old switch and all was well. Greased the machine and blades with a synthetic grease, sharpened blades, complete & master tune up and oil change, pressure washed, mowed for 2 hours with it, and it was fine.

I will wire the adapter directly to the harness w solder shrink tube butt connectors, should have been in the first place.

Ordered another set of Gator blades, a Stens oil change kit. Seat and brake switch quit also!

This was also blowing fuse under the seat - installed circuit breaker/fuse

von

do you like the Gator blades?

Thank you all for pointing me in the right direction.....after much analysis I found the reason my battery was not charging and that my clutch was operating sporadically was due to a partially broken wire between the alternator and the regulator. Make sure when inspecting your wire harness you give your wires a firm tug; had I not done this I never would have realized the wire was 'hanging by a thread'. It broke loose in my hands right where the wire meets the connector between the two components. Stress fatigue....just like me lol

I have a 2006 cub cadet ztr50, my pto went out at the end of fall.  I replaced the pto switch, the electric clutch and the fuse this week and it still won’t work.  I checked all the safety switches and they appear to be working as they should.  Any ideas on how to fix this?  Thanks
