Even with the mower not running when i pull the switch to engage deck it blows 20 amp fuse


Kelly, ray g. nailed it, First be sure it is only to be a 20 amp fuse, The wires to the clutch that drive the deck will be broke or bare shorting out on each other or on metal, wire are quite commonly broke by the clutch plug or close by. what you can do is carefully follow the wire from switch through the system and look for damage or bare spots, pay special attention when wire runs through frame/body holes and any where it could rub on metal or moving parts. Check the attached links,instruction and guides,4th link see Randy T. reply in forum, has good test method for your problem. Good Luck.

The mower starts but it keeps blowing the fuse when I engage the blades


check for a area of the wire insulation that has been wore off against the frame or body of the mower. sounds like a electrical short. it may be a very small spot that's all it takes so check well

The electromagnetic coupling is on the bottom of the crankshaft under the mower engine. When the magnets are engaged (power is supplied), they activate the pulley that moves the deck belt.

The mower starts but the blade switch won't conect yth1542xp


Husqvarna uses an electronic clutch to engage the mower deck. When the clutch works itself out of adjustment it will quit working. Sometimes it will blow the 20 fuse and the tractor will continue to run, but the blade won't engage. When you then shut off the tractor it won't crank again until you replace the fuse. When you attempt to engage the blades again, the fuse will blow again.

Follow this link for a detailed description of the adjustment process:

2007 Husqvarna Riding mower blade will not engage when switch pulled out. Fuse blows & mower dies! Help!


Sounds like you electric blade clutch is bad. I just had the same thing happen to my exmark mower. I was cutting grass and the engine just shut down. It would not crank over. Checked the fuses and replaced one blown fuse. The engine wanted to crank over but it was locked up. I looked the engine over and seen that the bearing in the electric clutch seized up causing the clutch to melt.

Blowing fuses


try unplugging the pto, starting the mower and then engaging the blades. If it still blows a fuse the problem lies in the mowers wiring. If not the problem is the pto. Hope this helps
