Woods 6170 zero turn mower. The mower blades stop after several minutes. I suspect a bad electric clutch. How do I verify that it is the clutch.

MTD RH 125/92 mowing belt jumps off guide wheels when disengaging mower (even when really gentle disengaging). I understand there's an additional belt guide available from manufacturer - would that be any good?

Failing that can anyone advise?

I have a Toro 42 zero turn mower and the blades stop turning while mowing. The PTO switch knob melted. I replaced the PTO switch and the blades turned for 5 min. and then the PTO switch melted again.


Elertric blade drive clutches are a real pain when they go wrong
It sounds like a electrical short is causing the wires inside the switch to heat up beyond the safe melting point thereafter five mins the circuit gets between the fault gets broken as the switch fails the blades stop and the switch melts a bad eaRth corroded may cause this check the deck safety switches are not exposed e.g. they been damaged and the decks metal is shorting them out
a wire has been stripped of protective covering and is touching some metal shorting out something that vital to the blade controls operation the switch is getting a overload and subsequently melting your might need an lawnmower engineer to diagnose to the fault fully and repair

I have no idea what type or model of mower you have but if I was to guess I would say it has an electric pto clutch on it, if so remove your pto belt and clutch. I would bet it is burned out and locked up preventing your motor from turning over. Once the clutch is removed I will bet it will start and run fine. This is not a cheap fix but relatively easy one. Hope this helps.

Have a 1540 zero turn. runs fine till you engage the electric clutch to mow.backfires and won't run right. runs fine when you shut of mower blade drive


the electric clutch sometimes jumps of the steel retention dowl. That then pulls the wires and stops the motor. You will need to remove the clutch and reposition it over the dowl. You will also need to re-fit the electric connections. Watch out for the fuse as this will often blow.

Blades will not engage


electric pto clutches go bad, turn your ignition switch to the on position and turn your your pto switch on and see if you hear a click if you do that is the pto working if not check and see if you have a fuse for the pto i have seen switches go bad and it could be the pto clutch it self

I have a 60" Lesco


If it were me I would check the PTO switch with it running and use a dvm or test light to see if switch is working or defective , you could just have a bad wire connector at the switch or at PTO clutch ....look for discoloration or spread terminals, good luck

Have a cub zero turn 52 inch cut the blades wont engage it starts but when you pull the switch to turn on the blades it wont engage any help?


sounds like one of three possible problems ....one - there are safety switches that prevent engagement of the blades,,,,,two - the electric switch which engages the electric clutch blade pulley is bad....or three - the electric clutch blade pulley assembly is bad.....first.....make sure all ur connections are tight to the safety switches and electric clutchblade pulley.....then, if your able to read and follow a wiring diagram, get the wiring diagram for your tractor and a 12 volt probe light (with probe point end) with a ground lead....first, ground the clamp end to the frame and probe at the electric pulley clutch plug to see if power is getting there...if not...follow the wiring diagram to the next switch location the power lead comes from....if one side of the swtich shows power and the other side doesn't with the switch in the correct run position....then the switch or connection is bad.....if it probes okay...go to the next switch....follow this logic from both sides of the from the electric pulley blade clutch plug until you isolate the switch or plug problem....if everythin tested is good....then it's the electric clutch pulley assembly that need replacing.....hope this helps.....
