Sad to say it may have never been a bad pto clutch but probably safety switch problem. The running tractor wants you in the seat, brake off, levers over your lap and not backing up for the PTO to stay engaged . There is two push button switches on each lever that lay over your lap ,one on the parking brake,one under the seat. All of these switch wires meet at the PTO switch and all have to agree they are in the position they need to be in to allow electricity to come down the wire to the PTO Clutch.

Electric clutch wont engage when when switched on even though I can hear a clicking sound at the clutch.


PTO Clutch will not stay engaged.
There is a very fine one page discussion on evaluating electric clutches at this site:

http://www.messicks.com/Articles/FixingElectricClutch.aspx

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.
  • Cap Screw torque 55 lb-ft (75 N.m).

Kohler CH640-3075 (one year old and in a Grasshopper 720K) will not turn over. Battery charged.


check fuses first. then check starter solenoid for proper power and then this will lead you to either a safety switch issue or a power issue...

turn key on, pull pto switch... does pto engage, then your problem is at or after the key switch

Just replaced pto clutch brand new ,wont engage.nothing, zip not a movement.


Check that you are getting voltage to the wires that connect to the clutch when you switch on the pto. If not check that you are getting voltage to the pto switch. If you are the pto switch is faulty. Regards Phil

Craftsman zero turn - blades won't engage


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

NO FORWARD NO REVERSE


I had the same problem so I looked under the mower and the belt that goes from the engine to the back of the mower was off so I pushed the clutch as far forward as I could and the belt went on it and it worked
