Is there a second PTO safety switch other than on seat ?... Engine stops the instant PTO lever moves, Assuming its not seat switch since it starts and runs/drives fine until PTO is touched.

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

With a test light check for power at the PTO plug. If you have power at the plug be sure the connection is good, or the clutch has failed. If no power check the ground, then check for power in at the PTO switch. Power in and not out suspect the PTO switch. After that check wires and safety switches.

The 20 amp fuse blows when i engage the pto. cub cadet 1045 20 hp


Pto cluch is shorted to ground
unplug the pto to isolate the pto from the circut,
Does the fuse still blow ?
use a ohm meter to test the plug at the pto
Test each side of plug to pto body or ground if meter goes to zero the cluch is shorted , and is not fixable (sealed unit)
you will have to by a new one I'll say around 50 to 75 dollars

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.

hi there nchernuka

have you checked that the engine to chassis bolts are still tight and the mounts are ok,

have you checked that you havn't bent the pto shaft ( this will be evident if you remove the blade carrier and blades, then the plug and pull the gine over - check wobble ), check that blade carrier is in good condition and the pto woodruff key is ok and the carrier centre pto bolt is tight

check that anything that is under the mower body is still tightly attached and is not getting swung into the path off the blades - ie catcher tounge - metal body brackets etc

i would also suggest you check the feather timming key in the flywheel too especially if it kicks back when you try to start it

cheers have a look

hope it helps pauly46
