Blades would not turn after I got stuck in mud. Electric clutch.

  • Turn the engine off and remove the key.
  • Check for physical damage; anything look bent?
  • Is the deck belt intact?
  • Spin the pulley on the bottom of the clutch. Does it spin freely?
  • There could be mud or grit stuck in the clutch.
  • There is a drive key between the clutch and the shaft. Has this key been sheared?
  • When you pull the PTO switch does the clutch make a "click"? It's possible the clutch was burnt out during the mud incidence.
PTO Clutch will not engage or stay engaged.
There is a very fine discussion on evaluating electric clutches at this site:

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.

SOURCE: Husquavarna GT2254 runs fine till I try to engage the blades,

Hello janec37415:

>>From your Description it Sounds like the Seat Safety Switch is Bad, has a Bad Connection or the Stator/Charging Coils are Not Charging Enough for the PTO to be Engaged.
>>When the Blade is Engaged, the Seat Switch is Showing No One is on the Seat so the Engine is Shut Off by the Safety System or
>>When the PTO is Engaged and the Stator/Charging Coils are Not Charging Correctly, the Carburetor Solenoid Does Not get enough Voltage to Stay Open and the Engine Quits.
>>If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Happy.
>>Thanks.


Respectfully

SOURCE: blades will not engage when you pull up on the button

When you pull switch to turn on blades do you here a click sound ? If so clutch is most likely ok,did you check your belt to make sure its ok ?Seat switch is just a saftey feature it cuts all power to the clutch so thats why blades turn off,thats why I asked you if you here a click when pulling switch that will tell you if there is power to switch.there is also most likely a fuse in the line that goes from the clutch switch to clutch.

I have the same tractor. If you have the transmission in <reverse> this will happen every time. It's a safety feature. Be sure the tractor is in <neutral> or one of the 6 forward gears.

THE BLADE DOES NOT ENGAGE WHEN I PULL OUT THE KNOB THAT IS SUPPOSE TO ENGAGE THE MOWER BLADE


"I have an Electric Clutch and my Blades will not engage when I operate the PTO switch."
  • Turn the engine off and remove the key.
  • Check for physical damage; anything look bent?
  • Is the deck belt intact?
  • Spin the pulley on the bottom of the clutch. Does it spin freely?
  • There could be mud or grit stuck in the clutch.
  • There is a drive key between the clutch and the shaft. Has this key been sheared?
  • When you pull the PTO switch does the clutch make a "click"?
When you sit in the seat and turn the key, one click from off to run, you will hear a faint click. That faint click is the fuel shut off valve under the carburetor. It is turning on and off when you cycle the key from off to run. Do not confuse this click with the clutch click.

Leave the Key in the Run position, cycle your PTO Switch on and off. You will hear a click. This click will be twice as loud as the fuel switch click. This louder click is the Clutch engaging. If you do not hear this click, the PTO switch may be bad or the Clutch may be bad. This is assuming your battery is good and fully charged and that your Key Switch is functioning correctly.

What causes fuse to blow every time I try to engage blades?


To engage the blades is it a knob to an electric switch that you pull?
If so does the wire from the switch activate a electric clutch?
Is the wire damaged and shorted to the frame, is the clutch shorted. If you provide the brand name and model number I might be able to find a schematic for your mower.

When everi i engage the blades, the mover cuts off on 40


I still think its a seat switch issue, many seat switch block connecters have fail safes in them should they come away from the switch, it is difficult to by pass these as they will earth out as soon as you pull it away from the switch

I have a craftsman mower with the B&S 21hp Intek OHV motor, it starts fine but when you go to engage the blade or go forward or backward or release the parking brake it will die unless you disengage...


Check the switch on the seat, of all places. There's a safety switch on the seat that will kill the engine if it's not engaged when do anything other than start and run the engine.

If the switch checks out, get back with me.

Hi, there are two safety switches on your mower, one on the seat and one on the reverse position of the gear lever. One of these will be shorted and faulty. Locate these switches and bypass them one at a time by removing the wires from the spade connectors until your mower runs with the blades engaged. Then replace the faulty switch. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

The mower starts but the blade switch won't conect yth1542xp


Husqvarna uses an electronic clutch to engage the mower deck. When the clutch works itself out of adjustment it will quit working. Sometimes it will blow the 20 fuse and the tractor will continue to run, but the blade won't engage. When you then shut off the tractor it won't crank again until you replace the fuse. When you attempt to engage the blades again, the fuse will blow again.

Follow this link for a detailed description of the adjustment process:
