SOURCE: A short in the pto wiring perhaps?

Form what you are desribing you have a direct short, probaly in the wiring going to pto. I t has rubbed somewhere and is causing your short. Unplug the wires at connector close to your pto clutch and try it again and see if fuse stuill blows after you unhook it.

If the fuse still blows it is in the wiring going back up to thje switch. If the fuse does not blow after unhooking wiring connector the problem is in the clutch.

Blows a fuse every time I engage the cutting deck


it is not supposed to start unless some one is in the seat
now for your problem, if engaging the cutter deck blows a fuse then check the wiring for a wire that is cut or shorting out on a lever that moves when the cutter is engaged

Keeps blowing fuse


There are several things that can cause the fuse to blow. PTO stands for Power Take Off and most likely this will not be the problem unless it blows the fuse when it is turned on. What you are saying is the fuse is blowing by just turning on the switch will be a short which can be anything from a pinched wire, shorted diode, short in the stator. bad voltage regulator.etc

Ford 99 Taurus ignition fuse keeps blowing every time key is turned


A bad something, yes.
The fuse may be the primary fuse for the key switch. If it is, you would need to disconnect the key switch harness and check for a short to ground on each circuit.

sounds like your electric clutch is prob bad check to make sure wires are not bare touching something, the clutches do go bad eventually like any other electrical part, disc the pigtail and try fuse, if it blows then I would consider a clutch

Blows fuse for blade clutch after 20 to 30 secounds ...


Most likely there is an internal short in the PTO clutch, but it could also be in the wiring, which is way cheaper to fix! So, with the engine off, get down on the ground, find the PTO clutch (it's between the two pulleys under the motor) and trace the wires that go to it. Look for a worn spot in the insulation anywhere, especially likely where the wires pass through the chassis or if they've touched a belt or other moving part. If you find a wiring problem, just splice in a new wire.
Ok, if you found nothing, then unplug the connector that connects the wires from the PTO. Start the engine, drive around, engage the PTO switch (of course, the blades won't spin). If the PTO fuse does not blow, you've proven the problem is in the PTO clutch and you must replace it ($150 or so, sorry!). If the fuse does blow, that's good news, you just have a short in the wiring or in the PTO switch itself. Disconnect the wires from the switch to differentiate those two possibilities. The PTO switch isn't too expensive either. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful.

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!

Scotts 2554 mower wont start added new battery, cleaned carb and needle seat. new pto switch but still pops fuse when u pull the pto switch, put new swi=tch in and now wont even turn over at all


Does the engine turn over?. The pto switch you mentioned is this the POWER TAKE OFF switch? In other words starts the deck? If so, it must be off when starting the mower. Any internal combustion motor needs fuel and spark. If it cranks over check for a spark. If no spark determine if it has points or breakerless ignition. Also check magneto coil. If you have spark then, be sure fuel is getting to the carb. With today's gasoline, you can't let it sit in the tank long without adding an additive. If the PTO switch you described, is blowing a fuse, then it cold be a bad coil on the clutch. You can disconnect this coil to see if it stops blowing the fuse. you didn't mention if it is a Kohler or BS engine.
