SOURCE: problem with John Deere L120 tractor

Park brake switch is the most likely culprit,any other would cause the tractor to not turn over in the crank position.

SOURCE: Everytime I engage the clutch

Yes, this usually means the elelctric blade clutch is bad and will have to be replaced. Sorry, this is an expensive part.

I believe I would start by looking at the grounding for the solenoid(clutch) sounds like that it may be intermittent. Or the spring assembly that physically engages the assembly on the deck my be dirty or need a lubricant and a cleaning or both. Good Luck

Even with the mower not running when i pull the switch to engage deck it blows 20 amp fuse


Kelly, ray g. nailed it, First be sure it is only to be a 20 amp fuse, The wires to the clutch that drive the deck will be broke or bare shorting out on each other or on metal, wire are quite commonly broke by the clutch plug or close by. what you can do is carefully follow the wire from switch through the system and look for damage or bare spots, pay special attention when wire runs through frame/body holes and any where it could rub on metal or moving parts. Check the attached links,instruction and guides,4th link see Randy T. reply in forum, has good test method for your problem. Good Luck.

Ac not working, air compressor clutch not engaging


Hi Adeyeri

Keep in mind that the Clutch won't engage for a few safety reasons.

Temperature inside vehicle
Temperature of compressor or pipes
Pressure inside pipes
Compressor jambed
Eg It's out of refrigerant Gas

You can momentarily engage the clutch by simply giving it +12v to the wire attached to clutch. Usually has a connector close by.
Or
If it has a Relay (click) in fuse box
You can by pass it with a jumper

A quick engage & disengage should allow you to detect possible problem.
But don't over ride the built in safety for more than about a minute.

Cheers
Hope this Helps

F525. Updated mower switch by John Deere is not engaging mower


The John Deere F525, a front cutting machine, has 3 fuses.
20 Amp
15 Amp
10 Amp

Check the 15 amp fuse. I believe this supports the PTO clutch. If you replace the fuse and it blows again, check the electric clutch. You will likely find burnt or melted wires. The bearings do go out on these clutches causing them to run hot and eventually burn up.

PTO Clutch will not engage: 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).

If the fuse blows, I recommend you check the resistance of the clutch. If the clutch is shorting to ground it will show zero resistance when you ohms the connector wire to a ground position. In which case, you will have to replace the clutch.

Fixing Electric Clutches

Other possibilities.
On the F525 there is a cut-off switch in the hydraulic system. It is a low pressure cut off. If you were running the mower and deck and then it suddenly stopped, it may be low pressure in the hydraulics. It will not automatically reset as you are using the same volume for the drive pumps. Once the oil gets low enough it cuts out the deck drive 1st, then the drive pumps.

What causes fuse to blow every time I try to engage blades?


To engage the blades is it a knob to an electric switch that you pull?
If so does the wire from the switch activate a electric clutch?
Is the wire damaged and shorted to the frame, is the clutch shorted. If you provide the brand name and model number I might be able to find a schematic for your mower.

The mower starts but the blade switch won't conect yth1542xp


Husqvarna uses an electronic clutch to engage the mower deck. When the clutch works itself out of adjustment it will quit working. Sometimes it will blow the 20 fuse and the tractor will continue to run, but the blade won't engage. When you then shut off the tractor it won't crank again until you replace the fuse. When you attempt to engage the blades again, the fuse will blow again.

Follow this link for a detailed description of the adjustment process:

2005 L120 mower blades not engaging, I would like a link to wiring diagram to track problem, I do not have a manual available to me.


Check wire connection coming up behind right rear side of engine to see if you have voltage to the PTO clutch.The wires feeding clutch go through frame at rear side of engine,make connection and go into harness.I would also check your RIO switch to see if its working.Fuses?

LTX1000 42" 18HP Kohler - Blowing fuse after 2-4 min mowing.


sounds as though you are on the right track
but be sure to check the wiring directly from the electric clutch on the front of the motor back to the switch
a wire could be pinched in the frame and shorting out intermittingly
look around and find those wires and move them around and look for chaffing and tightness
and what you could also do is to unhook the clutch at the connection to it at the front of the motor and engage switch and ride around and see if fuse blows and if not you may have an electric clutch issue
