Question about Oregon Scientific Electric PTO Clutch for Cub Cadet, MTD and Warner

1 Answer

Cub Cadet PTO will not engage

The PTO on my LT1050 will not engage. I have jumped wires from the battery to the PTO and it works fine that way. I am assuming that it could be the PTO switch, the Reverse Overide, or a safety switch. I have checked all of the safety switches first and they seem to be fine, however, I only know of two. The seat switch, and the reverse switch.
1.) Are there more than two? If so, where are the others?
2.) The reverse Overide will not light up. Could that be a safety switch problem, or should it light up anyway regardless of the safety switch condition?

Do you have a volt meter or a 12 volt test light?..if you do you can see where you are losing your voltage at..but i would suspect the PTO switch is bad..i hope this has helped.....Keith

Looking for the sensor schematics for a cub cadet series 1000, LT1050 hydrostatic lawn tractor. anyone help me?


Try looking at the directional lever at the Transmission. The PTO for the deck will shut off when shifting into reverse. You may have to simply disconnect or jumper the reverse switch depending on if it is normally closed or normally open. Try it both ways to see what works. Also check the engine oil level, The low oil level switch will shut the engine down if more than a quart low.

Hi

your PTO is built just like a wound up coil and becomes magnatized it gets real hot and it shorts out when it heats up make sure you have no frayed wires which will creat a large risistance and really heat up

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.
