Safety switch under the seat. Make sure the brake is pressed when trying to start.

My engine, B&S, has a fuel solenoid on the bottom of the float bowl.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: husqvarna 2448 pto switch kills engine,bldes

try unplugging the pto, start the mower, then engage the pto switch. If the fuse still blows trouble is somewhere in the mowers wiring if not the ploblem lies in the pto. hope this helps

Take a hammer or similar tool, and with the WOODEN END ONLY, tap on the starter and/or solenoid while you have the key turned to the start position. Should start then if all is otherwise OK. May not need further repairs. Sometimes just needs a "tap" to bring it back to life.

SOURCE: Husqvarna YTH2348 - blades wont engage,everything

there is an electric clutch, also called a PTO, which is on the lower end of the motor's drive shaft. If you look underneath the mower in the front you will see it, a belt is on it which goes to the deck and spins the blades. The PTO has an inline fuse which could have blown, unfortunately it is generally caked in old cut grass, spilled oil, and belt wear residue. You are going to have to get some light down there and take a long look at the PTO, find the wire coming from it, and follow it until you feel a bump in the wire, like a cat being digested inside a snake. Clean the bump well and you will see that it is really an in line fuse holder and you can take it apart and replace the fuse if it is bad. Having said that, when a fuse goes, it goes for a reason and that is generally the PTO is failing and shorting or drawing way too much current. The fuse is a safety valve. But it may get you through the cutting and you can call a mower repair shop and have them replace the PTO.

WE have a dixon husqvarna ztr mower model 966004101. It wont turn the starter over. We purchased a new battery wasnt sure if it was something to do with safety switch

Just had this problem. When you turn the key all the way over to start does it at least turn over like the battery is dead or do nothing at all? If nothing at all the solinoid is bad. Mine is a speedztr 42". Mine for 2 years was draining my battery and I had to leave trickle charge on it year round. This year when I tried to start completely dead although battery tested 12.37. Found the ignition switch was bad and replaced it and solenoid. 12.00 each at local hardware store. Starts and runs like a dream with No trickle charger! I would start with solonid if your battery is not being drained every week.

I have a Husqvarna YTH21K46. What would cut the fire to my anti after fire solenoid ?

Any one of the safety switches that shut off the tractor will also shut off the voltage to the fuel solenoid. On my mower it is getting out of the seat without turning on the parking brake and of course turning the key off. If the solenoid did not shut off when the engine was shut down it could backfire from the red hot carbon on the head and piston and possibly break a connecting rod . I wish the manufacturers could have put a L E D light panel on the dash to tell us witch safety switch was not happy.

A safety feature appears to be stopping my mower from turning over

You will have at least 2 safety switches. One is the clutch/brake pedal activitated and the other is the seat switch. It sounds like the clutch/brake pedal switch is not allowing the starter to engage the flywheel and start the mower. Check for the switch under the footrest or near the back of the mower. Should be easy to find. Check it with an ohm meter and verify it is working. you could use a wire with 2 aligator clips to jump the switch but dont make this a permanent solution. Replace the switch if it is bad. One thing to consider is the ignition switch. Since you can jump the solenoid and the engine turns but wont run, you may have no power to the ignition/coil to fire a spark to the sparkplug. You need to turn the key to RUN and then jump the solenoid to confirm this. I think it will be one of those as the seat switch only kills the motor if the deck is engaged and the seat raises up. Let us know.

93 corsica not starting

When you turn the key to on, does everything come on, all the dash and warning lights?
When you turn the key to cranking, power is sent to the solenoid mounted on the starter, through a small purple wire. This is what engages the starter. But the path from the ignition switch to that solenoid travels through a starter relay and a neutral safety switch(for automatics) or a clutch safety switch (for manual transaxles). Check for power with a testlight or voltmeter at that purple wire on the starter solenoid when someone holds the key in crank. If you have power there, the solenoid is bad, and starter needs to come out to replace the solenoid. Doesn't sound like that, though. Usually they make a clicking sound when, or before going out. I think maybe the relay is bad or the neutral safety switch may be your problem(or the clutch switch if you have a manual).
Good luck.

Truck randomly won't start. No clicking, no nothing. Has a new battery, starter relay, ignition switch, etc. Someone told me to replace the clutch switch/neutral safety switch. I bought a neutral safety...

when it wont start, turn your headlights on, see if they work if they dont, find out why. When it wont start, take a wire from the positive battery terminal and touch it to the small post on the starter solenoid, it should crank. If it now cranks, theres a problem between the ign switch and the starter solenoid.

Husqvarna lawn tractor stop running has battery power and gas. Was using at when it stoped. Is it switch or senorid switch.

Does the engine turn over when you turn the key. If it does then it is mostly not getting fuel past the carb into the engine. If it does not turn over then it could be the switch or solenoid but it could also be a problem in your wiring system or a safety switch which is interrupting the ignition.
