My son was mowing the yard for the first time this season and ran over a length of metal wire along the edge of the street. It is now wrapped around the shaft of one of the blades. We've removed the deck and the affected blade, but the wire is tangled tightly up under the blade adapter--basically a big piece of metal at the end of the shaft axis that the blade attaches to with two screws. I'm not seeing anything in my manual about removing this. It seems like I might be able to do it by flipping the deck and trying to remove the belt wheel, but I don't want to go experimenting. The wire is fairly heavy and cannot be pulled free without access to this area, though.

Re: Mower Shaft tangled
Chris. sometimes takes doing that is not in the owners manual. If you feel like you can do it then have at it. Just makes notes or take pictures as you so you can a reference points to go by when putting it back together.

I just had the same problem. I installed a new spark plug, sprayed some starting fluid in the engine and it started right up. I mowed my entire yard, and my neighbors yard with no problem?? I'll post more next mow and let you know if it has fixed the problem!!
I have an XT721F self-propelled, auto choke Husqvarna mower. The first time I used it this season it ran for a short time and then just quit on me. I have since emptied out all of the gas and have replaced it with high octane 91, and have also added Seafoam to clean out any other issues. I mowed two weeks ago with no problems and went to mow again today and only made it through 2/3 of my back yard and the mower stalled out on me again. What's going on?
sound like timing is off sherd a key in flywheel
take cover off where you pull the rope and then
take off nut off flywheel its going to be tight and hard to get off but can be done take a screwdriver to hold flywheel ones the nut off look around shaft see if flywheel key is sherd
or pry off flywheel be carefull dont damage anything if sherd replace key
you didnt say what model this is, but i assume its hydrostatic because it has a drive shaft. is the hydrostatic unit filled with oil¿ if its ok, check the linkage from the pedal to the rearend (hydrostatic drive) make sure its not broken or loose.. if that l@@ks ok, check both ends of the drive shaft making sure the couplers are not broke and the drive shaft is ok. hope this helps.
Very possibly an open or a short in the electrical circuit that controls the power take-off. Inspect the line connecting the switch that engages the deck all along it's length to see if it's frayed somewhere. If the bare wire is contacting metal, you have a short. Very possibly one end is somewhat loose giving you an open circuit. Take the ends off, clean and reinstall tightly.
sounds as though you are on the right track
but be sure to check the wiring directly from the electric clutch on the front of the motor back to the switch
a wire could be pinched in the frame and shorting out intermittingly
look around and find those wires and move them around and look for chaffing and tightness
and what you could also do is to unhook the clutch at the connection to it at the front of the motor and engage switch and ride around and see if fuse blows and if not you may have an electric clutch issue
Immediate thought is that something got ingested into the needle feeding the carb. Might have to remove the carb and clean it out thoroughly to maintain fuel flow through the engine. Generally if it runs a few seconds and shuts down then it is running off the initial burst of fuel and then starving out for any more from there.
