Check the drive belt , it is probably worn and polished, it will grip a little when cool but will slip as soon as it gets hot.

SOURCE: PTO problem on a model

Hi,
I would be looking at the ignition switch....but before replacing it I would be looking for a friend with an electrical meter and checking the wiring for power coming out of the switch to the cluthch, this way you can narrow it down positively before buying parts.

the safety system wouldn't know if the clutch its self had failed see if your getting power to the clutch with some one on the seat or a jumper on that switch the clutch could have failed also look at the wires going to the clutch they break to

I have a LT1042, cub cadet. PTO clutch burnt up. I replaced it and the solenoid, fuse, and relay. Thinking that when PTO clutch burnt out that something else like a wire or sensor went out also.


Check all the safety switches u have a bad one look under the seat first that one is a common problem so I take it your PTO won't engage I bet your old PTO is still good the safety junk they put on these mowers fails a lot causing problems running your mower also look under the back side by the tire there is another safety switch that gets corroded that's switch is the one that will not let you mow in reverse if you want to bypass it u can just put the wires together then beware your mower will work in reverse also I hope this helps you have a great day Regards Chris

My blade will not stay engaged to mow. how do I fix the problem?


When you say will not stay engaged you are saying that it comes on then cuts off ? If you turn on the PTO and it engages and the mower is not moving does the PTO stay engaged and for how long (if OK then need to check connections for PTO ) . If it is not engaging at all then we have to look at interlocks / safety switches . Give me some Details

You've checked the wiring to the PTO and it looks OK. Does the PTO engage when the switch is thrown? Do you have a multi meter , so you can trace the voltage to the switch, from the switch to the PTO. You also should check the safety switch (s) which will prevent the PTO from engaging if there is a faulty switch. And it could simply be a fuse that has blown.

New pto switch stoped working after 4 mowings


Maybe the problem wasn't the PTO switch. My Cub Cadet RZT PTO would disengage when I backed up and then failed to re-engage. I was able to isolate my problem to the safety switches at the base of the steering levers. I sprayed them with WD40 and they've been fine. Just a thought and worth checking. I hope this helps.

PTO stay engaged on allison transmission md3060/ PTO chelsea 277


wires to the pto solenoid incorrect and not wired properly through the switch
did you put the correct shims under the flange of the pto mount as it it is incorrect distance , the pto teeth will say jammed in the transmission gear teeth
suggest that you take it to a shop that fits pto and have the installation checked before you damage the transmission

Cub Cadet 1861 amp light comes on when the PTO is engaged and after mowing for a short time the PTO disengages and now the 30 amp fuse blows and stops the engine


Sounds like you have a short circuit, either in the PTO clutch, or in the wiring that goes to it. Inspect the wiring for any obvious spots where insulation has rubbed off or burned. Also look at the wiring at the back of the PTO engagement switch for these signs. Before buying an expensive PTO clutch, unplug its connector. Drive around with the PTO switch on (even though the PTO won't activate and the blades won't be engaged). If the fuse doesn't blow, the problem must be within the PTO clutch. If the fuse still blows, it must be in the PTO switch or the wiring from there to the clutch. Use an ohmmeter to trace and find the short. Good luck!

PTO red light switch is on when PTO isn't, so engine won't start


Mitch...the reverse safety switch, I beieve, is designed to kill both the motor and the blades if you don't use the override button prior to trying to mow in reverse. Since I don't know the make or model of your tractor, your not wise to reverse mow unless the override switch is engaged....hope this helps..
