Question about Husqvarna 23 Hp 48" Deck Yard Tractor
The mower deck turns on and off while mowing
Very possibly an open or a short in the electrical circuit that controls the power take-off. Inspect the line connecting the switch that engages the deck all along it's length to see if it's frayed somewhere. If the bare wire is contacting metal, you have a short. Very possibly one end is somewhat loose giving you an open circuit. Take the ends off, clean and reinstall tightly.

Try putting a jumper wire on the wire going from the engine to the seat. Take that plug and put a wire from one side to the other. Be careful not to cut your feet off when engaging deck.

Even though the routing is correct, have you checked that every spindle and idler pulley turns freely? These bearings can freeze up or bind because debris builds up in them. Also, if the bushings on the idler pulleys can wear, causing them to misalign. Keep checking. Also - is the belt snapping clean, or do you see a burnt, worn spot?

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. The belt is snapping clean. You are correct in your assessment to what the problem might be. We checked all the above and did not correct problem. We put three washers on top of small idler pulley to bring it down and better align routing. Bought heavier belt at auto parts. Believe the bolt head was touching belt where it routed throught to larger idler pulley."
