I have this same problem on my 36 in toro pro line sfs i ohmed the clutch the wire the safety switches and the PTO engagement switch all checked out good if u find any thing let me know the clutch its a adjustable clutch and its supposed to be set at .018 at all three springs there will b a slot that's where u check that but. U can get a multimeter and test the clutch by putting it on ohms and hooking up on both sided of the plug once u have unplugged it.the clutch should ohm out at like .003 or .004 max if more the clutch is shorted out

Even with the mower not running when i pull the switch to engage deck it blows 20 amp fuse


Kelly, ray g. nailed it, First be sure it is only to be a 20 amp fuse, The wires to the clutch that drive the deck will be broke or bare shorting out on each other or on metal, wire are quite commonly broke by the clutch plug or close by. what you can do is carefully follow the wire from switch through the system and look for damage or bare spots, pay special attention when wire runs through frame/body holes and any where it could rub on metal or moving parts. Check the attached links,instruction and guides,4th link see Randy T. reply in forum, has good test method for your problem. Good Luck.

GTH2548 mower starts but when I engage blade, it blows the fuse.


Probably the electric PTO shorted to ground. Unplug the connector at the PTO clutch and re-test if it no long blows the fuse then the clutch is bad; otherwise, there is short to ground in the wiring between the switch and that connector.

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!

Blowing fuses


try unplugging the pto, starting the mower and then engaging the blades. If it still blows a fuse the problem lies in the mowers wiring. If not the problem is the pto. Hope this helps

Toro mower is blowing 30 amp fuse


Yes it is. It is an electro-magnetic device that 'grabs' your blade pulley, that normally free wheels, to turn your blades when there's power to it. Dwain

The blades stop and the 20 amp blowes on My YTH


Hello:

This Sounds like a Bad PTO.
The Following is a Basic File I Made for Checking the PTO (Blade Engagement). The Most Common Cause for this Problem is the PTO Ground. A Quick Ground Check is to Use Another Wire and Ground the PTO at the Harness Connection Nearest the PTO. Be Careful and Do Not Ground the HOT Wire. Use a Multimeter and Locate the Ground Wire. Clean the PTO Ground and All the Connections for the PTO Wiring Harness. If you have an Ohmmeter, Disconnect the Wiring Harness from the Front of the Clutch and Check the Resistance of the Clutch. You should have around 4 or 5 OHMs. If at or near Zero, the Coil has Shorted.
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
