They should unplug at the clutch if not follow the wire from the clutch forward and there will be a connection.

John Deere Z840A Z-Trak mower. Why does engine die when PTO is engaged?


A possible cause is an open seat switch (operator presence). Locate the switch under the seat & unplug the switch from the harness. Place a small jumper wire into the female socket leads to the wire harness. If the PTO engages without engine shutting down, replace the seat switch.

Check to see if the mower deck is plugged or a piece of wood/debris is wedged between the deck and a blade, or some wire/rope is wrapped around a spindle. If the blades don't turn by hand, it'll stall your engine when the electric PTO clutch is energized.

Lastly, a discharged battery will cause an engine shut down if there's not enough reserve when the PTO is engaged. Measure the battery voltage with a meter. If the voltage is below 11.5 volts, you may have to replace the battery.

What causes mower deck to sometimes engage after PTO switch gets shut off.


Sounds like a bad connection in the wiring harness from the switch to the PTO clutch. I have a lot where the wires broken at the clutch but still make contact randomly since the insulation was still in place.

The pto will not engage when switch to turned on


The light just indicates power is available for the PTO clutch. It doesn't it reaching the clutch. You need to unplug the PTO clutch and check to see if voltage is there. If it is there then clutch itself is bad or the wiring from the connector to clutch is broken. If no power at the connector then you have wiring problem and may even have part of the PTO switch not working.

42" Troy Bilt zero turn PTO switch


I would first look under the machine, check the wires leading to the pto clutch. There should be a connector/plug, make sure it is clean and plugged in completely. Also, check the wire harness grounds to the frame. Otherwise, you'll have to check the switch, power going to the switch etc. Usually, they are wired thru the safety switch harness so, could be a bad saftey switch, or bad pto switch. You'll just have to start testing wiring.

My electric pto is not working properly. It shuts off and does not turn back on when theswitch is pulled


I've had the same problem. Intermittent shut-off of the pto. Found out that the pto (electric clutch) draws heavily on the battery current to stay engaged.Clutch is actually an electro-magnet. I bought a new battery (300 cca) the bigger the better and clutch now works fine. Old battery was still strong enough to start engine but not strong enough to engage pto. Old battery was 4 yrs old. A good clutch will click if jumper wires from the battery to clutch wiring harness are connected (with out motor running.)

Faulty voltage regulator. Insufficiant output to operate the PTO clutch and charge the battery.

If the battery charges without the PTO clutch 'IN', then this proves all the wiring, so this has to be the answer.

I suppose there is a remote possibility that the holding coil in the clutch is partially shorted, but it's unlikely.

Hello ianh_2007:

Usually this Problem is Caused by a Blown Fuse or a Bad PTO Ground.
1-The Following is a Basic File I Made for Checking the PTO (Blade Engagement).
>>The Most Common Cause for this Problem is the PTO Ground. >>A Quick Ground Check is to Use Another Wire and Ground the PTO at the Harness Connection Nearest the PTO.
>>Be Careful and Do Not Ground the HOT Wire. Use a Multimeter and Locate the Ground Wire.
>>Clean the PTO Ground and All the Connections for the PTO Wiring Harness.
>>If you have an Ohmmeter, Disconnect the Wiring Harness from the Front of the Clutch and Check the Resistance of the Clutch. You should have around 4 or 5 OHMs. If at or near Zero, the Coil has Shorted.
2- >>The Following is a Basic File I made for Setting the PTO Clearance. Any Input is Appreciated. **Some of the Newer PTOs cannot be Adjusted.
>>If you can Get a Blade Style Feeler Gauge between the PTO Magnet and Clutch, then Set the Clearance at .015in. The Newer PTOs have the Same Set Up as the Older PTOs, except there is No Adjustments.
>>I Suggest also that you Rig a 12 Volt Light for Testing the Current Flow to the PTO while Operating the Mower. If the Light Blinks During Operation, then you have a Bad Connection somewhere to the PTO Clutch.
>>If the Light Stays Steady and the PTO Still Kicks in and Out, then it is the Adjustment.
>>You can Also Try Turning the Spring Loaded Adjuster Nuts 1/4 Turn and Operate the Mower. Do Not Adjust Over 1/2 Turn.
>>If you have Adjusted to 1/2 Turn and the Problem is Still Present and you Know the Voltage to the PTO is Steady, then Replace the PTO.**
Please, Do Not Hesitate, 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 Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

Mower pto engages when initially started but after


the coil in the electric PTO shorts out when it expands by heat causing it to lose it's magnetic pull and disengages- I hate to say it,but you need a new PTO clutch.
