I would check to see if the clutch is acutally OK. Start by unhooking the connector at the deck and supply a 12volt source (has tro bee high amp) to the leads...Be aware! The red(or white or green) is the positive and the black is the negative....don't hook them up wrong. If you've done this and the clutch still won't turn on the blades. then you have to replace the clutch.

A switch should only be about $25. Before you spring for a new PTO assembly, take your switch out and take it to a shop and have it tested. I may just be a bad switch. Don't bother taking it to Sears though. Take it to a shop that works on Husqvarna and/or Poulan Pro. (Both basically same as Craftsman). DO take the model number from under the seat with you.

Depending on the age of the mower, it sounds like a wire has wiggled lose, or the switch itself has gone bad. I would check the wiring to the switch and to the pto clutch and ensure that all wires are secure, free of corrosion. If this still doesn't fix the issue, install new switch. This appears to be entirely and electrical issue, and is a cheaper troubleshooting method before tearing down the pto engagement system.
Let me know!

SOURCE: PTO problem on a model
I would be looking at the ignition switch....but before replacing it I would be looking for a friend with an electrical meter and checking the wiring for power coming out of the switch to the cluthch, this way you can narrow it down positively before buying parts.
