Question about Lawn Mowers
Fuse blows intermitenly then the mowers fine.usually happens after half an hours use,yesterday blow 6 fuses one after another.the fuse was blowing with the machine switched off,after a ten minute rest the mower worked fine again.the mower is 2 years old and as had little use.
Sounds like you have a blown valve. I'm assuming this is a 4 stroke motor, if it was 2 stroke then it would be the reed valves. But either way it's the valves.... unfortunately that will require a mechanic :(

I can think of only one or two things that are causing your problems. It could either be approx. a $14.00 switch in the handle that has shorted out, or 2 bad brushes $1.75/ea.on the armature (motor). Both are fairly simple fixes with just a screwdriver and maybe pliers. You might also check and see if the power cord has been chafed or damaged and is shorting out.
See below for parts:

There is a wire shorted to ground (metal) somewhere...check all the wiring for a bare spot somewhere... this is causing the short...repalce the wire and you will be good...
finding the bad spot is the hard part...

could have bad pyo switch or pto clutch.make sure every thing turns freely,blades and pullys then unplug clutch and try to enguage if does not blow fuse check clutch with meter. put meter on ohms probe one terminal and other on ground via clutch housing should not have continuety check other terminal to ground.voltage goes in one term and out the other like litebulb if potting (insulator) in clutch is melted wire inside will short on housing.hope this helps

Wire harness for the PTO on the RZT's is designed dangerously near the drive pulley. After time, the harness drops and comes in contact with the pulley which grinds through the coating and shorts out the circuit. Repair (tape up) the wiring, relocate the the wire to the opposite side of the crank pulley (may have to zip-tie in place) - shouldn't be a problem anymore.
