AS SOON AS IT DOES THIS, TAKE A HEAVY DUTY JUMPER WIRE AND JUMP ACROSS THE TWO LARGE POSTS ON THE SOLENOID, IF IT CRANKS, REPLACE THE SOLENOID IF IT DOESN'T THEN CHECK YOUR BATTERY TO SEE IF IT HAS 12 VOLTS OR MORE. IF IT DOES YOU NEED A NEW STARTER AND IF IT ONLY HAS 50 HOURS ON IT YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET WARRANTY UNLESS THE WARRANTY TIME IS UP

Craftsman zero turn 26 hp kohler engine new pto electric clutch does not work


Sad to say it may have never been a bad pto clutch but probably safety switch problem. The running tractor wants you in the seat, brake off, levers over your lap and not backing up for the PTO to stay engaged . There is two push button switches on each lever that lay over your lap ,one on the parking brake,one under the seat. All of these switch wires meet at the PTO switch and all have to agree they are in the position they need to be in to allow electricity to come down the wire to the PTO Clutch.

I have a Toro 42 zero turn mower and the blades stop turning while mowing. The PTO switch knob melted. I replaced the PTO switch and the blades turned for 5 min. and then the PTO switch melted again.


Elertric blade drive clutches are a real pain when they go wrong
It sounds like a electrical short is causing the wires inside the switch to heat up beyond the safe melting point thereafter five mins the circuit gets between the fault gets broken as the switch fails the blades stop and the switch melts a bad eaRth corroded may cause this check the deck safety switches are not exposed e.g. they been damaged and the decks metal is shorting them out
a wire has been stripped of protective covering and is touching some metal shorting out something that vital to the blade controls operation the switch is getting a overload and subsequently melting your might need an lawnmower engineer to diagnose to the fault fully and repair

Kohler CH640-3075 (one year old and in a Grasshopper 720K) will not turn over. Battery charged.


check fuses first. then check starter solenoid for proper power and then this will lead you to either a safety switch issue or a power issue...

turn key on, pull pto switch... does pto engage, then your problem is at or after the key switch

charge the battery not hooked up to the mower let it sit overnight and try again the battery might just be died they only last a couple years put a volt meter on the battery when off then start it and watch the battery voltage should be around 14 volts running the pto clutch draws the most thats why it shuts off first the ign doesn't take any the carb needs very little

Put mower in reverse, turned it off and mower


There are safety interlocks on zero turn mowers. These prevent starting unless you have: 1. the handles in 'neutral' position 2. the brake on 3. the mower engagement (PTO) switch off 4. yourself in the seat.
Chances are one of these conditions hasn't been met. Since you were reversing when it happened, perhaps you haven't got the handles back to neutral position?
