SOURCE: john deere 2010 tractor. pto grinds and wont engage

The PTO usually has a clutch that has to be engaged so that you can select the PTO rotation setting. I had a problem like that on my tractor and all it needed was a little adjustment on the PTO clutch lever, so it could disengage the PTO gearbox properly.

SOURCE: How do I remove the PTO clutch from a John Deere

Locate and disconnect the power supply cord from the clutch. Remove the bolt, washer and retainer from the center of the clutch, It should now slide off the end of the crankshaft provided you have previously removed anything such as body parts or braces that would be in the way. In some instances penetrating oil must be used to help free it up. When you reassemble it, it is a good idea to use a little bit of anti-seize on the engine shaft in case you have to remove it in the future.

Where can i find a John Deere la115 wiring harness diagram?


The John Deere site has the wiring harness diagram on the LA115 parts diagram in the Electrical section (section 40, page 19). Start here: https://www.deere.com/en_US/parts/parts.page and select the Parts Catalog. http://jdpc.deere.com/jdpc/servlet/com.deere.u90490.partscatalog.view.servlets.HomePageServlet_Alt is where I ended up. The carburetor is in section 30 (Fuel and Air), page 10.

I hope this helps.

F525. Updated mower switch by John Deere is not engaging mower


The John Deere F525, a front cutting machine, has 3 fuses.
20 Amp
15 Amp
10 Amp

Check the 15 amp fuse. I believe this supports the PTO clutch. If you replace the fuse and it blows again, check the electric clutch. You will likely find burnt or melted wires. The bearings do go out on these clutches causing them to run hot and eventually burn up.

PTO Clutch will not engage: There is a very fine one page discussion on evaluating electric clutches at this site:

http://www.messicks.com/Articles/FixingElectricClutch.aspx

My JD tech manual, which covers the entire LA 100 series, agrees with the electrical specifications. It states that the Electric PTO Clutch should show the following:

Resistance 3.7 ohms
Current Draw 3.25 amps
It does not give the air gap.

It does include a note to check the PTO Clutch Key for damage or if missing. So there is a drive key between the PTO Clutch and the shaft. Additionally, it recommends checking the tightness of the cap screw. That's the screw or bolt that holds the clutch on the shaft.
Cap Screw torque 55 lb-ft (75 N.m).

If the fuse blows, I recommend you check the resistance of the clutch. If the clutch is shorting to ground it will show zero resistance when you ohms the connector wire to a ground position. In which case, you will have to replace the clutch.

Fixing Electric Clutches

Other possibilities.
On the F525 there is a cut-off switch in the hydraulic system. It is a low pressure cut off. If you were running the mower and deck and then it suddenly stopped, it may be low pressure in the hydraulics. It will not automatically reset as you are using the same volume for the drive pumps. Once the oil gets low enough it cuts out the deck drive 1st, then the drive pumps.

How come I can't start my John Deere LA115 after


The Reverse Interrupt Override switch is supposed to let you keep the blades engaged while using reverse. Be sure PTO is off and brake pedal is depressed and try to start engine. If it wont start/ wont crank then a switch is stuck or failed or there is a broken wire. Switches that are involved with PTO operation are the seat switch, reverse switch, PTO switch, and RIO switch. The starting system requires neutral ( no reverse activated), brake switch and PTO switch off.

Eletric PTO is not working


The PTO draws a pretty good current, so a weak or loose contact in the switch, or in the connections on the back of the switch, could cause this overheating. But it could also happen if the PTO clutch itself or the wiring to it has a short. If the mower's still under warranty, get the dealer to diagnose and fix it. If not, then I'd measure the resistance of the PTO clutch - should be about 2 ohms - and make sure the wiring to it isn't shorted. If all that is OK, then just replace the PTO switch and any melted connectors and wiring. Good luck!
