Someplace, somewhere... the insulation on a wire is rubbed away and the wire is touching ground. It will NOT be easy to track down.

I've known some people to track that sort of problem down by bypassing the fuse and just seeing which wire catches fire. I don't advise that, since it may be inside a wire loom and catch a LOT of wires on fire, and you may end up with the whole mower catching fire.

Time to either get really familiar with a multimeter or find someone who's good with electrical stuff to dig through your mower.

SOURCE: pto blows the fuse everytime i engage it on my rzt

Wire harness for the PTO on the RZT's is designed dangerously near the drive pulley. After time, the harness drops and comes in contact with the pulley which grinds through the coating and shorts out the circuit. Repair (tape up) the wiring, relocate the the wire to the opposite side of the crank pulley (may have to zip-tie in place) - shouldn't be a problem anymore.

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

I have a 2006 Cub Cadet RZT 42 Zero Turn Mower that keeps blowing the fuse. It would blow the fuse after long periods of use but it's gotten shorter and shorter between fuse blowing. Now it blows the fuse...


you have a wire that is grounding out, I would check the wire coming from the connector on the voltage regulator to the battery. This is the one in the middle position, look for a rub through and tape it up.

Cub cadet rzt 50, hit stump, blades wont engage but not bent


The blades on this cub cadet are activated with air pressure. Chances are that when you hit that stump, you either blew a fuse or the control module that allows the blades to spin. Begin by checking the fuses. J.
