Toro mower is blowing 30 amp fuse

Is the pto on a lawnmower engaged all the time the mower blade is running? I guess what I am asking, Is the coil on the pto energized with 12 volts dc the entire time the blade is running. thank you for an answer, Bill

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

Why my blade wont engage on my toro 74370 zeroturn mower


it has an electromagnetic clutch switch on it,that is more than likely bad. Try this,pull the pto switch out and start the engine,then disconnect the 2 wires coming from the switch and just tap them together and see if they will come on. If they do then you need to replace that switch.

John Deere 265 replaced pto switch on dash pto drive belt and mower deck belt still pto does not engage...also randomly blows 20 amp fuse from time to time when pto would engage previously...checked...


The electrical is part of the PTO clutch assembly. It should only draw 5-7 amps. Ohm reading is somewhere between 1.7 to 2.5 ohms.

These coils do short from anywhere from a partial short to completely.

Cant get the switch to acctavate the mower deck on a cub cadet lawnmower


Check the fuse, tan/blue wire coming off ig switch or tan coming off PTO sw.
If it keeps blowing, check wire going to PTO unit for shorts or defective connection to PTO.

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!

Starts and runs good but after an hour of cutting when you turn off.. then you want to cut again it will start just fine but when you engage the blades the fuse blows it has a 20 amp fuse is this the right...


I normally see 30 amp fuses to the deck...but it depends on which mower you have. If you place a larger fuse and it does take a 20 amp..you may burn something up. I would check the blades, spindle towers and clean all the stuff on top and inside the deck to look for something catching on the blades. www.nnyparts.com

I have a Husqvarna Yth 180, the lawn mower shut off when I engage the blades to cut grass. I blows the 20 amp fuse near the wire harness


try unplugging the pto then start the mower next engage the blades and see if the fuse blows if it does the problem lies in the mowers wiring if not the problem lies in the pto. hope this helps
