Blades not egaging.

Check your ground wire. Follow the wire from your engage switch and or button. The ground wire may need tightened. I had a john deere and this problem was intermittent then if finally didn't work at all. I called the dealer and he walked me through the problem. sure enough the ground connection was not only loose but needed cleaning and tightening. Never had the problem again. hope this helps solve your problem.

Won't power up when clutch is engaged for mower deck

Something is binding in the mower deck area, perhaps and stuck bearing, bearing needs greased, stick or stone or big clod of grass caught between blade and deck or belt and pulley..
Disconnect to spark plug, and use a stick or something to spin blades manually. MAKE SURE spark plug is disconnected before EVER messing with blades. Motor could spin one time around accidentally and cut off your fingers. Disconnect plug wire and or remove plug to be absolutely sure before messing with blades. I'll say it again REMOVE plug wire from plug before inspecting blade area.

Why does my rover rancher stall when i go to engage the cutting deck

1>the pressure switch under the seat may be malfunctioning? (it will cause the engine to die immediately when trying to engage the cutting blades because it thinks your not sitting in the seat.
2>dirty or clogged air cleaner element will cause engine to die when engaging cutting blades. This can be tested very easily by removing the air cleaner element and then trying to engage the blades again. If this works then replace air cleaner element immediately before running the engine anymore.
I have personally experienced both of these problems myself more that once.

Why does my new 3.5CH heli only spin on the ground & lower blades aren't operating. Won't fly. What gives?

Make sure that you charge the batteries overnight. Low battery power will cause loss of power and loss of lift.

Loss of power when blades engaded.

Remove deck belt from blade pulleys and Tri to spin blades by hand. If they don't spin freely, you probably need new spindle bearings but if you do need a new spindle I would replace the whole spindle housing... Just make sure the one (s) you buy has housing, spindle, bearings, nut and washer.

Husqvarna riding mower smokes when cranked and dies when engaging blades

If it dies when engaging the blades it's not getting enough juice to do so. Test the battery and make sure you are getting at least 12 volts. If not, charge it. If so, the solonid is going bad.

Turn key doent start

Do you here a clunk when you turn the key to start? If so that is the starting coil pulling in, if not the starting coil may be bad or battery drained or safety switches in wrong position, but check battery voltage and connections. I had a friend recently leave the lights on and drained the battery. If battery drained charge it or jump start your mower and mow for a while to charge. Also check to make sure your safety switches are in the right place. I had another friend that had a kid playing in her garage and he had engaged her blades and the safety prevents starting the mower with blades engaged. Also if you have an electrical engaging of blades versus a manual if the blades were left engaged while sitting it will drain the battery also.
