Question about Ariens Garden

1 Answer

While cutting the grass the pto seemed to quit. I turned off the mower and haven't been able to restart it since. The starter is good and the spark plug is new. I'm thinking a switch or interlock of some kind is bad. Where do I start looking?

You probanbly have an electric switch that turns the blades on and off, the back of the switch has 6-8 spade type connections,this is because it not only runs the blades but the interlock that won't allow the motor to start.,Just buy a new switch they cost about 50-75 bucks depending the crook you have to deal with. Good Luck. it would be nice to have a littlemore information, but it sounds typical of all of those size units.

Changed filter, oil, full of gas checked gas flow everything is good , when I start m lawn mower it runs , when I engage my pto and start mowing for about 5 minutes it just quits

if this is got the 27 hp kohler engine, I know exactly whats wrong with it , due to grass and engine oil building up in a short time under cylinder heads , it actually makes a tight ball of grass and stuff there !! this holds the engine heat and ruins the ign module that's just above it there , I put two on in one season ( tractor runs 6-10 hrs day 6 days a week ) I finally gave up I bought a Kawasaki 27 hp twin and installed it , now its run for two seasons and no problems
engaging the pto has nothing to do with it , it would cut off if you just drove it around for 15 minutes

Why does electric clutch click and seems to be getting no spark

While sitting in the seat with the ignition key on you should be able to hear a click from the pto clutch when the pto switch is activated but this click is audibly different from the click of the starter solenoid. The starter will be disabled if the pto switch is on. If you hear the pto clicking while trying to start then there is a failure in the pto switch. If the starter solenoid was bad the starter would not engage. Check ignition switch, pto switch, and look for wires melted together. Also be sure grounds are good. PTO clicking on start and no spark could have a relation with the pto ground and engine kill wire.
