Electric PTO on 1500 series Cub Cadet won't engagewithengine hot

The electric PTO on my 1500 series Cub Cadet stops engaging when the engine gets hot. It first starts as delay between the time I operate the switch and the mower starting. Then it won't engage at all. I can shut the engine off for 5 minutes or so and it will work for a while. Then it won't engage again

I have a 2002 1500 series cub that had the same problem.
What it sounds like is the PTO switch, possably just the wire being burned in half.

After reverse, my cub cadet zero turn mower pto will not re engage the blades. sporadic up to the point of stopping altogether. is it the switch or clutch?


I would guess it is the switch. My Cub Cadet has a safety feature where the blades (PTO) stop when you hit reverse. There is an override where you turn the key back about a quarter turn or so and hit a button right above the key to make the blades run even in reverse. Therefore, I would guess the ignition switch is the problem but I can't be certain. Or it could be the electric switch that engages the PTO.

IF connecting that one hot wire to the pto made it engage then you either have a broken/cut/bad connection/wire to the pto or the switch is bad.
What you did by using the hotwire to the pto is bypass all the wiring and the switch for the pto.
You can determine if it's the switch real quick if it only has two connections/wires to the switch. Pull the switch, remove the wires and touch them together, after you have the mower in the condition under which the pto would engage. If the pto engages it's the switch for sure.
Take all the proper safety precautions. Don't let the wires touch anything else.

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!

Cub cadet pto won,t stay engaged


Sounds more like a PTO clutch failure, rather than the switch. The clutch is mounted on the engine shaft, between the hydrostatic drive pulley (nearest the chassis) and the mower deck belt pulley (farther from the chassis).
Since it's an expensive part, make sure the problem isn't in the switch or wiring first. You could do that by probing the wires to the PTO clutch with an automotive test light - they are inexpensive and handy. Clip the ground wire of the test light to the chassis, and probe the hot wire to the clutch (it's the one that doesn't connect to ground) when the engine is running and the PTO switch is engaged. Obviously a helper has to be in the seat, and you should be careful doing this. If the light glows brightly, and the clutch doesn't engage, you definitely have a bad clutch. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.
