Was mowing fine then motor began surging and now blades will not engage or disengage


Because the mower began surging and now the blades do not work, I am thinking something electrical. The PTO and electric clutch would be where I would start. The clutch can be checked and should read 2 -4 Ohms.

My blade will not stay engaged to mow. how do I fix the problem?


When you say will not stay engaged you are saying that it comes on then cuts off ? If you turn on the PTO and it engages and the mower is not moving does the PTO stay engaged and for how long (if OK then need to check connections for PTO ) . If it is not engaging at all then we have to look at interlocks / safety switches . Give me some Details

Troy-Bilt Colt XP. Start engine and begin mowing and everything is fine. After a few swipes on the yard, 2-3 minutes, PTO shuts off. turn off and back on works shortly. PTO clutch getting hot???


electric pto clutches get HOT (not warm) for only a few reasons
(1) worn out friction disks inside
(2) foreign object(s) not allowing clutch to fully engage a good blast of high pressure air knocks out most stuff , if let go to long this leads to 1st reason

I was mowing and the blades stopped turning. I disengaged and re-engaged the blades a few times and they started back. Then a few minutes later the blades stopped again then the motor stopped and will...


I have no idea what type or model of mower you have but if I was to guess I would say it has an electric pto clutch on it, if so remove your pto belt and clutch. I would bet it is burned out and locked up preventing your motor from turning over. Once the clutch is removed I will bet it will start and run fine. This is not a cheap fix but relatively easy one. Hope this helps.

New pto switch stoped working after 4 mowings


Maybe the problem wasn't the PTO switch. My Cub Cadet RZT PTO would disengage when I backed up and then failed to re-engage. I was able to isolate my problem to the safety switches at the base of the steering levers. I sprayed them with WD40 and they've been fine. Just a thought and worth checking. I hope this helps.

I have a 60" Lesco


If it were me I would check the PTO switch with it running and use a dvm or test light to see if switch is working or defective , you could just have a bad wire connector at the switch or at PTO clutch ....look for discoloration or spread terminals, good luck
