SOURCE: Mower shuts off when clutch is disengaged.

Check your seat adjustment to make sure you're applying constant pressure to the safety switch under the seat.

SOURCE: Dies when clutch disengaged

It sounds like the seat switch is disconnected or failed. Check it out. If it thinks there is no **** on the seat it will cause your symptoms.

SOURCE: craftsman riding mower blades won't disengage

This is too late, but for the next person: There is an extension spring around the cable attached to the blade engage/disengage lever.

On my tractor one end of the spring had the hook broken off or it. Because it is around the cable it is still in place but doesn't stretch when you engage the blade (so can't pull the pulley out and slacken the belt when you disengage).

The replacement is a few dollars and can be bought on ebay or Amazon.

Why will a cub cadet lawn mower cut grass a few mi. then stop cutting?


Sounds like the electric PTO clutch is bad and needs to be replaced.The straps within the clutch brake causing it to get out of position and the clutch keeps disengaging. You can buy the clutches on line cheaper but they don't last as long.

Clutch does not disengage gears


You either have a hydraulic clutch system or cable. What probably happened is your hydraulic system failed. You either have a separate reservoir for the clutch master cylinder or it shares the brake reservoir. Check under the hood next to you brake master, Too difficult to answer without more info on year, make and model.

Cutting blades won't disengage


Check you blades to see if one is bent. Do this with the mower NOT RUNNING and the KEY OUT of THE IGNITION! Look under the deck to see if one is bent. This will cause the wobble. As far as no disengaging your electric clutch could be bad. The bearing could have seized up.
