SOURCE: It won't start with key; new fuse and new selinode

It may possibly be the seat switch. There is a little button under your seat, it is a safety mechanism. It's so the mower won't start without someone actually sitting on it, it will also shut off atuomatically if you fall off. If your good at wiring, and splicing, you can cut the wires and splice them together, and see if it starts. Hope this helps a bit.

Mowing too fast for the blade speed. Use higher engine speed or lower gear.
One or both blades too short?

Check the air filter and replace it if it is dirty. Also, get a product at an auto parts store called seafoam, a carbeurator cleaner, and add it to your fuel at the rate of one ounce per gallon of fuel.

not possitive, but sounds like 1 of the bearings on the mower deck is starting to seaze up.I would start with that. Remove the deck and belts and check all the pullys and bearings for free movement.

Need to know how to change transmission fluid on cub cadet lt 1045 riding mower


Cub Cadet has five models in their new Series 1000 lawn tractors, all powered by Kohler engines. Cub Cadet models -- as several other lawn equipment brands -- are manufactured by MTD Products.

The Cub Cadet LT 1045 has a 20-hp Kohler single-cylinder engine, with an aluminum block and cast-iron sleeve for longer life. It has a full-pressure lubrication system with spin-on oil filter for easier maintenance. This engine is not as powerful or as long lasting as the Kohler V-Twin OHV, which is available in other models in the line, but the LT 1045's engine is still solid enough to provide years of mowing.

The hydrostatic (automatic) transmission is a good match with the engine and provides sufficient grip to cut grass on moderate inclines. Power is transferred from the engine to the transmission by a heavy-duty Kevlar belt rather than a more expensive shaft drive. A Kevlar belt also drives the three cutting blades.

The mowing deck cuts a swath of grass 46 inches wide at one pass, and is removable for service and cleaning. Four anti-scalping wheels help keep the deck from scalping grass on uneven ground. The cutting height is manually adjusted from 1-1/2 to 4 inches. The turning radius is 18 inches, which standard for lawn tractors. This model is intended for use on 1- to 2-acre lawns without many turns or small obstacles.
