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

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.

LT1046 cub cadet blown clutch..what caused this with new Pto switchpto switch froze..replaced it still will not engage blades.what could blow the new clutch


Are you sure it's blown? Run two jumper wires from the battery or power side of the starter solenoid and energize the clutch. If it energizes and clicks, that's eliminated. Did you blow any fuses?

I have a cub cadet rzt that every time I turn the ignition on it blows a fuse


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.

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.
