    Check the belt to be sure it is actually on the pulley. If I engage mine with the deck all the way up it will throw the belt off the pulley. The belt will wedge itself under the pulley and spin blades but only about half speed.

Electric clutches usually work or they don't. You may simply need a new belt or there may be an idler pulley or blade spindle with a bad bearing causing excessive drag. I have seen idler pulleys go missing altogether causing extra slack in the belt. good luck, Chuck

LT1046 cub cadet blown clutch..what caused this with new Pto switchpto switch froze..replaced it still will not engage blades.what could blow the new clutch


Are you sure it's blown? Run two jumper wires from the battery or power side of the starter solenoid and energize the clutch. If it energizes and clicks, that's eliminated. Did you blow any fuses?

Older cub cadet mower runs fine until blades engaged starts stalling out


Check that the battery is fully charged. If the water is below the top of the plates it needs topped up. If it is old it may not hold enough charge to drive the ignition and the electric clutch. The clutch can draw so much power the ignition falters and so your engine dies. The engine charger may not be able to cope with the draw off when the clutch first comes in.

Cub cadet pto won,t stay engaged


Sounds more like a PTO clutch failure, rather than the switch. The clutch is mounted on the engine shaft, between the hydrostatic drive pulley (nearest the chassis) and the mower deck belt pulley (farther from the chassis).
Since it's an expensive part, make sure the problem isn't in the switch or wiring first. You could do that by probing the wires to the PTO clutch with an automotive test light - they are inexpensive and handy. Clip the ground wire of the test light to the chassis, and probe the hot wire to the clutch (it's the one that doesn't connect to ground) when the engine is running and the PTO switch is engaged. Obviously a helper has to be in the seat, and you should be careful doing this. If the light glows brightly, and the clutch doesn't engage, you definitely have a bad clutch. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.
