Hello

From your Description it Sounds like a Bad Saet Safety Switch.
>>The Following is the Instruction File for Checking the Seat Safety Switch.
>>***PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHECKING THE SAFETY SWITCHES IS JUST THAT!!! FOR CHECKING ONLY.***
>>I NEVER Suggest a Mower be Operated with a Safety Device or Switch Disconnected or Bypassed. **Make Sure the Switch has a Good Connection. Now; On Some Model Mowers you can Simply Unplug the Safety Switch from the Harness. On Other Models you have to Place a Jumper Wire Between the Harness Terminals (on the 4 Post Switch Jumper from Same Color Wire to Same Color Wire). The Seat Safety is Showing No One is Seating in the Seat when the Clutch or Blades are Engaged.**
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

SOURCE: blades won't turn to cut grass

On the chute where the grass comes out there is a black piece of metal under the edge of the deck held on by the 2 big thumb screws is probably bent. You will need to try to move the blade on the side near the chute by hand (Make sure the mower is not running when you do this) if the blade touches the black piece of metal it will kill the mower if you engage the blades and try moving forward. Anyway you need to take the black metal piece off and bend the corner out of the way (I used a crescent and clamped it to the hitch on my pickup). I am guessing i went over something like a street curb with the deck when it was to low and that bent it. Now when ever I move the mower from someones yard or drive it across the street I always raise the deck up all the way. I hope this helps

SOURCE: ariens ezr1742 mower blades do not

The common cause of this problem is that one of the safty switches has come dis-connected or has failed since most every newer mower has a electric clutch controlling the mower deck PTO there are safties bilt in under the seat and in other locations to make sure everything is ok before the blades engage, easiest way to test this is to run a jumper from the positive post of the battery to the input wire on the electric clutch assembly making sure all other wires ade dis-connected from the clutch and see if the blades engage if so then usint a continuity tester check all the wires and switches to this item to check for a faulty switch or broken wire. Thanks Don

Blades will not engage on Ariens A22A46


Some Ariens mowers have electric clutches. You can check for it and wiring to it. Maybe a wire is disconnected, wore thru etc. It sounds like it's not engaging.

Blades wont engage


Hi Mary:
The drive belt will possibly have slipped off a pulley.
With the engine OFF, look between the cutting deck and the underside of the machine. Check the position of the belt as you have a helper move the engage/dis-engage lever back and forth.

Why won't the blades engage on my Ariens 911403


Chances are the deck drive belt has been knocked off one of the pulleys or the drive clutch won't engage properly. With the spark plug wire removed, rotate the blades by hand and make sure they both move together. This verifies the blade linking belt is OK. Now engage the blade operating control and feel for resistance as you rotate the blades. If you feel no change in resistance, remove the belt cover and reinstall the drive belt over the pulleys and tensioner/clutch mechanism.

42 Gear model mower blades won't engage


You haven't said if its an electric clutch or manuel so I presume it is electric and controled by a switch(PTO) on the dash 2 reasons.
1 one of your kill switches is faulty example: seat switch which is in an inline circut with your PTO switch could be the problem or a fuse or a bad PTO switch, it usually is the seat switch but trace the wires down from the PTO switch
2 you could have a faulty electric clutch which is under the motor attached to the crank shaft. check the plug in,Does it engage ?sound of a large click and if it does that means the clutch has to be adjusted using a feeler guage.

I have a 42" mtd lawn tractor. The blades do not


The blades engage via a belt, that goes around a series of pullies, one of those pullies is a tension pulley that is connected to your pto lever by springs, the engine has nothing to do with your blades until after you engage the lever, I would check your belt. It could be loose, and if you engage the blades it could take it a few to get up to speed, thus making it seem like its only when the engine is warm.
Does everything else work fine? As in the tractor moves when the blades are not engaged?

Craftsman 42" mower deck won't disengage


Try pulling on the cable coming down to deck. This cable might be your problem. Also check that the spring on the end of this cable is present and functional.

Blades will not engage


Lever that adjusts height does not make blades turn. You need to engage the blade lever and if you can not tell if the blades are turning then they probably aren't. check belt it could need replacement.

Be sure the belt is the correct size and is routed correctly.

If you are not sure, you can download a manual here:
