This will be due to belt drag. There is a blade brake fitted that is supposed to push brake pads onto the pulleys when the blade clutch is 'out'. If either the pads are worn, or the spring is missing/broken/dosconnected, that will be the problem.

When trying to start my husquavarna 4824 zero turn mower it does nothing starter does not engage and battery is ok


Check your blade ingage switch. Sometimes they stick. You can jump start it by jumping across the solenoid switch beside the engine. I sometimes have to engage and disengage my blade switch and it starts. Hope this helps.

When I pull the blade lever the blades do not turn. Found that the trottle wire to pto is broken. Need instructions and a diagram on how to fix it. Thanks


just wire it back together, you don't have to worry about crossing the wires up. because it's just a hot and ground for a coil to magnitize to ingage the pto clutch.

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

Not ingaging


Check to see if the belt might have come off and wedged on something under the frame. Or,,maybe a spindle could be locked-up. One more thing to check is if your deck might have a braking system on it to keep the blades from moveing it might not be disingaging.

Blades ingages and then stops


It sounds like the electric pto clutch is bad. If you are looking to get a new one try www.psep.biz scroll down to bottom and click on buy oem parts. Also check www.jackssmallengines.com. I can't remember which one was cheaper. Also try doing a search you might find a cheaper site.

Good luck let me know if this helps.

What ingages blades ,blades not engage


On most riding mowers flipping the handle to engage the blade causes an idler pulley to engage the drive belt, which takes up the slack in the belt and pulls it against the drive pulleys. A few odd-balls have an electric clutch to engage the blades.
