Question about Husqvarna Garden

Open Question

Husqvarna GTH2654. Pulled the PTO to engage mower and the engine quit running. The only way we can get it started is by bypassing with a screw driver but, when we try to engage the mower, it won't engage and causes the engine to stop or run bad until we disengage. Can you help?

SOURCE: pto willl not engage

Hi mate, Although my trade is repairing turfcare machinery, I have no experience with this model, so I will try my best. Firstly, the clicking you hear will probably be the electric clutch engaging/dissengaging. Firstly, see if you can get the clicking with engine off, keyswitch in first position/on/lights on dash. You may have to place something heavy on the seat and have traction pedal in neutral. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT ENGAGE THE STARTER MOTOR/START THE ENGINE THROUGHT THIS!

Now have a look under the footwell on top of the deck and try to determine where the clicking is coming from, there will be a clutch there somewhere joining the engine drive pulley to a deck pulley, Also at this point check that both belts are on and with the ENGINE OFF! spin the blade/blades with your hand and ensure that the deck belts are not slipping on the deck pulleys. If they are you will need to establish where the tensioning system is. (Sorry i know pretty vague)

Back to the Clutch, once you establish where it is, engage the blades ENGINE OFF! and you should feel a greater resistance turning the blades as you are now turning the engine as well, beware though, it is theoretically possible to start the engine by doing this, but you will almost certainly not be able to spin the blades that quickly by hand.

If it is clicking to engage but not turning the engine pulley when spinning the blades by hand, then try tapping the clutch lightly as it may not be fully dissengaging.

I would put money on it being either one of the belts coming off/snapping, the blades jamming or the clutch not engaging fully.

If you find that the clicking is not the clutch engaging and its actually getting no power to the clutch then you need to go back to the pto switch and go through all safety switches! (good luck, it usually ends up with me bypassing them or running a new cable to the switch,then, smoke, shouting, swearing etc etc!) Either not advisable.

In doing all this you should have been able to have determined the problem be it one that I have mentioned or another.

Hope this helps,
Chris.

SOURCE: the engine start running rough when pto in engaged.

An air filter can look clean and not be. Remover the air filter and pre filter and try again. If engine smooths out, you need a new air filter.

SOURCE: engine runs but stalls when engaged

This sounds like a micro switch, or relay issue, it is not stalling it is being switched off, if there are some relays on the back of the bulk head replace them, they are just a push fit.

When you inguage the ele pto it kill the engine whats the problem?


It could be a number of different things.
The starter switch has 2 different positions for safety. One will kill the engine while backing.
Have you tried engaging it with the switch in both positions? I would check that first.
If it doesn't kill the engine while in the safety bypass mode for backing, it would probably be a bad or stuck limit switch on the reverse linkage.

check wires coming out of the elec. pto just to make sure they are not broken or disconnected. then check the pto engage switch and relay to see if voltage is present. but first check your fuse for the pto.

Husqvarna Mdl YTH2448 Riding Mower - Electric PTO Not Working


It sounds like your charge system is not working. If you jump the battery the engine will run with a weak battery but the pto clutch needs a strong battery to stay engaged.Try this to test it,after you jump it leav the jumper cables hooked up and try to engage the blade clutch,if it runs it is either a battery that wont take a charge or a charge system not working. If you put a volt meter on the battery while the engine is running and the voltage is 13 volts the charge system is working and the battery is bad.

Husqvarna yth2448 pto switch kills motor/battery will not charge


you may hav a bad alt. problem with the mower dying when you engage the pto is most likley a bad sensor or wire unplugged on the seat sensor.the way it works is if the blades are turning and it dosent sense you being on the seat the mower shuts down.this has been standard on mowers for quite a few years now. it keeps the blades from cutting you up if you fall off the seat while mowing. as for charging i would try cleaning the battery connections and get the battery checked first.

>>When the Blade is Engaged, the Seat Switch is Showing No One is on the Seat so the Engine is Shut Off by the Safety System or
>>When the PTO is Engaged and the Stator/Charging Coils are Not Charging Correctly, the Carburetor Solenoid Does Not get enough Voltage to Stay Open and the Engine Quits.
