Electric PTO won't re-engage after running OK for a while

Simplicity Regent 17HP Hydro. Seems to work after cooling down. Also I can lift up momentarily on the seat causing the engine to start to stall and when I sit back down, the engine and the PTO start running.

    I fixed the problem by adjusting the gap between the clutch plates on the PTO. Old gap was .037". I adjusted the gap to .012" by tightening the 3 adjusting nuts. Very simple.

Why does my engine shut off after running for awhile with PTO engaged; will restart with PTO disengaged, but shuts off when i attempt to engage PTO?


Does this only happen when the engine is warm or at operating temperature or all the time even when cold? In older engines, a 'bad ignition coil' would fail when the engine warmed up and would not start again until cool or at ambient temperature.

Engine shuts down when pedal is released, and when pto is ingaged


check your Reverse Gear engage switch and PTO (blades engaged switch), either a bad switch(es) or short in wiring indicating that you are in Reverse with the blades engaged. Is there an override function so that you can mow in reverse? Check that circuit vs. the PTO and reverse gear. good luck
