SOURCE: FUSE BLOWS WHEN BLADES ARE ENGAGED CRAFTSMAN MODEL # 917.27686

Most probably you have a wire shorting to the frame of your mower.

Trace (follow) the wires from the switch, checking for any frayed, burned, or bare wires.

Repair as needed.

Unplug the engagement clutch[it bolts to the motors crank] and try to engage again.If the fuse does'nt blow you need a clutch.If it does still blow you need a switch or you have a short in the harness.

SOURCE: 2007 Husqvarna Riding mower blade will not engage

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.

SOURCE: Mower deck PTO switch will engage when pulled but stop when rele

The PTO switch has failed. There is an internal spring and plastic parts in toggle switches that keep them in the actuated position. It's not practical to take the switch apart to fix it, but replacement switches are readily available - probably $12 - $20. It's a good idea to disconnect the negative terminal from the battery before you do any electrical work. Be sure to put the wires on the corresponding terminals of the new switch. Good luck! Please rate if you find this helpful, thanks.

You haven't given enough information of the problem. The blades themselves wont turn when you try to spin them by hand or they wont turn when you engage them with the lever or the switch?

Hello, Ask your local Mower shop if they show a Thermal switch for the PTO. You may have to replace it or move it away from the heat.
