    I am actually looking for the wiring schematics going into the rectifier.I called it the diodes. I think I have found an old mower with the rectifier still wired. I will copy this and see if it works.thanks for trying.

There are actually 5 cables. Only 4 of them go to the switch as follows:
- There are 4 cables coming from the motor: a red, white, black and orange
- The orange cable goes directly to the plug
- The red, white, and black go to the switch
- There is another black cable going from the plug to the switch.

- The switch has two sliders, paralell to each other,
- When the button is not pushed one of the sliders closes the terminals 2 and 4 while 3 and 5 are open.
- When the button is pushed, 3 and 5 are closed and 2 and 4 are open.
3&5 are up and down in first row --------- and 2&4 are up and down in 2 row of the sliders.----------

from the plug the orange goes to the mower.the black from the plug should go to 5 so the circuit is completely open when the button is not pushed.

That means that on 3 we can only have Red, white or the black that come from the mower. (three combinations)
Black on 3, Red on 2, White on 4: As expected the circuit does not close. Discarded
Red on 3, Black on 2, White on 4: The circuit closes. possible
White on 3, Black on 2, Red on 4: The circuit closes. possible
So with Red on 3 and ventured to plug the mower.

if that does nor supports try white on 3,black on 2,red on 4:
and if thethe breaker pops in between that means you got the right connections but the wires are shorting in between .

    if the wires are short then replace the wires with same type of wires and connect it manually on the motor board.

    please do rate the solution.thank you using fixya.keep updated,thanks.

What causes fuse to blow every time I try to engage blades?

To engage the blades is it a knob to an electric switch that you pull?
If so does the wire from the switch activate a electric clutch?
Is the wire damaged and shorted to the frame, is the clutch shorted. If you provide the brand name and model number I might be able to find a schematic for your mower.

Video shows an electric clutch but yours may be different but this should give you an idea of where to look. Riding Mower Electric PTO Clutch Won Engage When Hot Problem Fix

On my snapper, diode in wiring harness burnt up and blew the PTO fuse. Any thoughts on cause. The diode is in the wiring going to the electric PTO Clutch. Thanks.

The diode is there to prevent voltage spikes in the wiring harness from when the clutch is engaged.. If it is burnt up, it will have to be replaced. The cause could be a bad clutch.

Briggs & Stratton wiring, can it handle an electric clutch?

You might have a capacitor in line with the clutch motor that requires feed from the engine to allow the clutch to engage. I think the red lead is charging current to the battery plus post. Get yourself a 270962 repair manual and it will show you how to wire these things.

Hi, I have a general electric model number 5kc182ag201d motor that I want to change from 110 to 220 volts. wiring diagram lost but the wires still have the numbers on them. Also I want to change the...

This can only be done if the motor has the function to be switched. But as for reversing the rotation it is very complex, if you have starting capacitors on top of the motor then it would be required to change the wiring at the diodes and wire the starting capacitors opposite of their present configuration. This is really something for an electrical motor rewinder to address as it is over the heads of most folks. It can be done if you had the wiring schematics and the motor has the features built in for this.
