No permanent solution, but you probably can get by once by "riding" the clutch engagement lever - pushing it only part way forward and holding onto it.

If the blades are engaged by an electrical switch, then the clicking sound is the belt drive clutch. Some rider mowers have a mechanical mechanism to engage and disengage the blades. Other riders have an electrical clutch which engages the blade drive to the engine.
First thing to check is to make sure that none of the belts are broken. There is probably one belt from the engine to the mowing deck. This is the belt that the clutch turns. There is probably a belt on the mower deck which turns the blades. If all the belts are intact, then check the clutch to make sure it is engaged and the pulley is turning when you engage the blades. Hope this is helpful..

John Deere eztrak mower went over a rock today and now the mower won't engage


hmm strange are the belts driving the blades ok if so then the PTO could be damaged but if there's no sign of damage it maybe a bit frozen up/locked up have the engien off but turn the key on and engage the PTO switch and manually turn the PTO (not by the blades please....dont want to have your hand taken off) turn by the PTO itself and if you hear any clicking sound disengage the PTO and engage a few times to ensure your hearing the clicking sound of the PTO turning on and off and it should be back to normal also check any connections going to the PTO before doing the manual work of repairing the PTO

Mower won't start unless solenoid is arced


If it acts like the blades are engaged, try tracing the wires to see where they are shorted out, start by disconnecting the wires from the switch. You may need a new switch

When I engage the mower, the blades spin just fine but there isn't the same mower sound. The mower sounds exactly the same when engaged and not engaged.


If the blades are not installed correctly they wont cause the desired airflow and you wont hear the difference.

Blades won't engage. I hit something, blades quit turning, check belt, its okay. When you hit button to engage blades, you hear click


When you look under the mower do you see two belts ? Top one goes to the rear axle and lower one goes to mower deck spindle.
Your description sounds like the electric clutch is engaging,so if you are seeing two belts coming off the bottom of the engine maybe the belt bounced off a idler pulley on the deck and is not tight enough.

Electric clutch wont engage when when switched on even though I can hear a clicking sound at the clutch.


PTO Clutch will not stay engaged.
There is a very fine one page discussion on evaluating electric clutches at this site:

http://www.messicks.com/Articles/FixingElectricClutch.aspx

My JD tech manual, which covers the entire LA 100 series, agrees with the electrical specifications. It states that the Electric PTO Clutch should show the following:
  • Resistance 3.7 ohms
  • Current Draw 3.25 amps.
It does not give the air gap. It does include a note to check the PTO Clutch Key for damage or if missing. So there is a drive key between the PTO Clutch and the shaft. Additionally, it recommends checking the tightness of the cap screw. That's the screw or bolt that holds the clutch on the shaft.
  • Cap Screw torque 55 lb-ft (75 N.m).
