Craftsman zero turn - blades won't engage

I have a Craftsman ZTS 7500 50" zero turn mower. The engine runs fine but the blades won't engage.Help please.

I mowed the grass and everything was fine. I turned off the mower and then started it again. I went to engage the blades and nothing happens.

The PTO switch contacts to operate the clutch that starts the blades is defective. I have replaced mine and the new one just failed again. Sears must know this is a defect problem but so far they are quiet about the problem

Most likely the saftey switch is triping your blades out...try pulling the switch out and connecting a wire from one side to the other..

Craftsman ZTS 7500 dies when engage blades or when engage transmission


check the "kill switch" they are usually located in the seating area. it senses for pressure or seat angle and will kill the mower if nobody is sitting on the mower. Good Luck

I have white zero turn 54" lawn mower. The engine runs but the blades won't turn on. Please any advise will help


This is a belt adjustment problem. You machines belt has either broken, or is loose to the point where it won't engage the blades at all, or has just slipped off the pulley. I believe the belts are on top of the deck covered by removable covers that are bolted to the deck. Check and see. GOOD LUCK.

What would cause my craftsman zero turn to die when i engage the blades?


First, sort out between two possibilities: 1. The safety system is killing the engine -- for example, if the seat switch is faulty or misadjusted, the engine ignition is killed when you activate the blade engagement switch. 2. The blades, spindles, or belts are binding or stuck, which would "drag" the engine to a stop. I suggest you remove the belt that drives the mower from the engine. If the engine still dies when you engage the blade switch, it's problem #1. Check all connections, and check the seat switch with an ohmmeter. If the engine does not die, then you have mechanical drag. With engine off and the belts taken off, turn each spindle to find out if one is frozen or binding. Good luck!
