I am having the same problem. The PTO in engaged and won't relase. The engine won't turn with PTO engaged, you need to disengage the blades to restart.

My Husqvarna LGT 2554 deck hung up on high spot mowing. Turned off deck & mower pushed by hand. Engaged deck,started to mow, wound to stop. Belts fine. Pull up on knob to engage, you get nothing.


The engine runs but the blades do not engage? Make sure the wire connecting the electric clutch is still plugged in. If all is connected and the belt is really fine, there is a problem with either the electric clutch or PTO switch.

Regarding a Craftsman garden tractor with a 23 hp V-Twin Intek OHV with electric start... was surging a while back, I cleaned the carb by removing the bottom screw only, some gunk came out and it ran fine...


Valve clearance should be set at .004". You should take your carburetor apart and really clean it thoroughly. I recommend getting some spray carburetor cleaner, and I recommend safety glasses. You should get it really clean and inspect all passages, holes and all non metal parts. As for the engine not turning, check that the blades have been disengaged, simple mistake people will often make at least once. If necessary check all safety switches.

I hope this gets you going again.

John deere lt155 lawn tractor shuts off when it gets hot while mowing, could this be electrical?


I had a similar problem lasy year.
Try this:
As soon as the machine seems to be stalling, loosen the gas cap.
If the engine continues to run, clean the gas cap vent hole(s).

Husqvarna Lawn Tractor LGT 2654 (from Lowes) B&S Intek V-Twin 725cc 26 gross hp 110 hrs. I had a couple of problems with the 2654 in the past but they were electrical. Now the engine seems to...


A common loss of power problem with B&S V twins is a set of crumpled valve push rods. Means you are running on one cylinder which is generally OK unless you also want to mow. Easy to check, pull one plug wire at a time off. If it continues to run on one cylinder but not the other, that is your dead cylinder. As the intake is not opening, there will not be a wet plug. Costs nothing to check and could be your problem.

Blades cutting out during mowing then battery will not re start


What do you mean "blades cutting out" and "battery will not restart"? If the mower deck stops and engine dies then I would suspect a faulty safety switch refered to as "operator presence" switch. In other words the electrical circuit has to know the operator is sitting on the tractor. Location is under the seat.

Mowing the lawn and blades just quit cutting


There should be 2 wires coming off the blade clutch at the bottom of the engine and running over to the frame, check these to see if they have come unplugged or gotten cut. Also look for a fuse under your dash, I am not positive that this model has one but some tractors do have one for the blade clutch. If you don't see any thing wrong there, try turning on your ignition switch without starting the engine then engage the switch for the blades and listen for a loud "clicking" sound, if you don't hear it or it is very faint, you need to further inspect the blade clutch.

Craftsman DYT 4000, 24 hp 48" deck. While I was mowing, the blades stopped turning, started again, and then stopped. I shut down, all looked OK, tried to start and nothing. No click, nothing. Any ideas?


there is a fuse in engine compartment that might have blown causing the engine or blades not to start but what probably happened was something got caught in the blades check under the deck & see if there is & also try spinning blades by hand & see what happens
