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.

My blade will not stay engaged to mow. how do I fix the problem?


When you say will not stay engaged you are saying that it comes on then cuts off ? If you turn on the PTO and it engages and the mower is not moving does the PTO stay engaged and for how long (if OK then need to check connections for PTO ) . If it is not engaging at all then we have to look at interlocks / safety switches . Give me some Details

My Husqvarna LGT 2554 deck hung up on high spot mowing. Turned off deck & mower pushed by hand. Engaged deck,started to mow, wound to stop. Belts fine. Pull up on knob to engage, you get nothing.


The engine runs but the blades do not engage? Make sure the wire connecting the electric clutch is still plugged in. If all is connected and the belt is really fine, there is a problem with either the electric clutch or PTO switch.

I have a husqvarna riding mower.. when i engage pto it kills the mower.. i direct wired the pto to the battery and it kicks on and off while mowing, mower runs fine when the pto is off please help


If you wired the pto directly to the battery and still kicks off and on, you have a bad pto clutch. They can be expensive but they are fairly easy to replace. Hope this helped.

Husqvarna pto problem(?) disengaged blades to travel, would not engage after. Battery dead when checked after shutting off engine and wouldn't restart


Hi, first charge or replace the battery if necessary then check that the mower is charging the battery. The pto is probably fine but it needs battery voltage to engage. If the mower has stopped charging the battery may have had enough voltage to hold the pto in until you disengaged it but not enough to re engage it. Regards Phil.

Husquavarna GT2254 runs fine till I try to engage the blades,


Hello janec37415:

>>From your Description it Sounds like the Seat Safety Switch is Bad, has a Bad Connection or the Stator/Charging Coils are Not Charging Enough for the PTO to be Engaged.
>>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.
>>If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Happy.
>>Thanks.
