Question about Cub Cadet Garden
Cub Cadet 2166 series. Pulling switch to engage cutting blades does nothing. This problem just began. There is no response when the switch is pulled to engage the mower. What's the probable cause? And, can a layman (like me) repair it? Parts? Any info would be appreciated.
Unfortunately, the circuit is a little complicated - it involves the "PTO switch" (the switch you pull on to engage the mower), a "reverse switch" that senses if you've put the mower in reverse, and a relay operated by the reverse switch. The reverse switch is there to disengage the blades if you try to reverse while mowing. A failure in any of those items, or the connectors and wiring between them, will prevent the blades from engaging. Unless you want to "shotgun it" and replace parts one-by-one on a guess (which many repairmen to do save time, but at your expense) you need to use an ohmmeter or test light to trace and isolate where the failure is.
