On john deere la150, if i sit on seat and engage blades,,,nothing, but when i lift of seat, blades engage and motor shuts off. Replaced seat switch and did not fix problem


"On john deere la150, if i sit on seat and engage blades,,,nothing, but when i lift of seat, blades engage and motor shuts off. Replaced seat switch and did not fix problem" Okay, what I'm hearing is that "nothing" means the blades-driving PTO won't engage (declutch) when you switch on mower; but then, (say) as you start to dismount the mower (seat) the mower (drive clutch) engages even as the deadman switch (seat switch) kills the engine (and the drive/pto shaft starts to slow down. The key here seems to be that at full engine torque the clutch is unable to remain engaged but, rather, slips so that mower blade inertia (resistence) cannot be overcome...but as engine/pto rotation slows the clutch is able not to slip. First place to consider is the clutch gap which is probably to0 large (possibly from wear and tear, possibly not). So check specs and how-to from manual or factory and reset the pto drive clutch gap...not hard to do. If clutch gap is not the problem then most likely rehab or replacement of the clutch assy will be needed...is the mower has many years use sufficient to wear out the clutch. Another possiblity is an electic (wring/switching/grounding) problem involving mower and deadman switches.

When I go to engage the blades on my 35 hp bad boy it kills the motor. Already checked the kill switch an clutch


Electric Clutches draw a lot of battery voltage when engaging the blades. You probably have a bad battery or an undercharged one. If your battery isn't fully charged it will likely kill the engine when you try to engage the blades.

Craftsman ZTS 7500 dies when engage blades or when engage transmission


check the "kill switch" they are usually located in the seating area. it senses for pressure or seat angle and will kill the mower if nobody is sitting on the mower. Good Luck

Replace switches & clutch. When brake is release everything dies. Ineed a wiring diagram.


There are a few safety switches on a riding mower. One is the brake clutch, which must be engaged to start mower if not in neutral for a manual transaxle. Another is a blade engaged safety that will not allow you to start it with the blades engaged and the other is the seat safety that prevents starting if the brake is not engaged.

If the seat safety switch is messed up and you release the brake it will kill the engine. I would start there.

I hope this helps get you going.

I went to go mow the lawn for the first time this season. Tractor started right up. took the deck cleaned and greased it. Went to engage the p.t.o. for the mower and the tractor stalled. Can't figure...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

The power sequence for engaging the blade deck is. Clutch brake pedal depressed, operator in seat, Enage selected and brake pedal released. When the blade enages the engine igniton kill wire is routed through the seat switch AND the PTO clutch. If either the PTO Clutch or the seat switch has a problem the engine dies. Same goes for the clutch brake pedal switch... if the clutch brake is not coming all the way up the engine will die.

If you respond with a model number (example LX2000) I can show via a manual where you need to troubleshoot using a meter.

Do a couple of good bounces on the seat, check the clutch brake pedal switch for clicks and then attempt to an engagement.

Also inspect the PTO clutch wires and connectors for corrosion.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

When I engage the clutch, the engine dies. The baldes turn freely, so it looks like and electrical problem. Is there a safety device that would kill the engine when the clutch is engaged?


All modern riding mowers now days have several safety switches and or relays/micro switches. Some are simple blade switches that make or break contact depending on the position of a lever. There is a contactor under the seat that will kill the engine if you fall off(you have to sit on it for it for the engine to keep running). There is one that kills the engine if you put the mower in reverse with the blades engaged. And there is a contactor that senses wether the mower blades are in fact engaged or not. It may be awkward but you can look at all the mechanisms and find where the different contactors are and move the levers back and forth to see if they aren't dirty, bent, or a securement screw is loose or missing. It is also possible that one of the wires are broken or have come off of its connection point. Once you inspect them you should be able to determine the next course of action. These are not hard to fix although they can be difficult to get to. If it has a micro-switch at one of these locations you may need to test it with a continuity meter to determine if it is good or not.

Engage the blades and then drop the deckand the engine dies


Could be in safety circuit. or could be excessive load on the motor with deck running. Check all safetys, like seat switch, clutch switch, pto switch. You didn't indicate what type of tractor you have,
