Question about Woods Garden

1 Answer

M2560 I replaced the electronic clutch and cannot get the new one to engage when the pto switch is turned on. I checked all the connections and all seem to be working properly. I wondering if there is a way to check the relay or if there is a common component failure associated with electronic clutch failure or a fuse that is not visable in the wiring diagram. Any help would be appreciated

SOURCE: PTO clutch will not engage.

first start by turning ign on,then switch on the pto switch to on. you should hear a click in the clutch. if not use a twelve volt test light,hook aligator end to a good groundand the needle end,,,touch to the pto switchharness to see if you have power to the pto switch. if you don"t, you have to go checkfurther to your power source,(battery) if you do have power there check to see if you have power at the plugin at the end of your wire harness, just at the beginning of where your cluch connects up. you can test you clutch by conneting a test wire from positive on your battery to one of the terminals on your clutch and the other terminal to ground . It willengage if it is good .using either wire is ok as all it will be doing is completing a circuit. hope this helps.

I have a Toro LX 500 Lawn tractor the pto clutch will not engage, I have 13 volt at the plug for the clutch , so ordered and installed new clutch... Still will not engage checked volts again had 9.3


PTO Clutch will not stay engaged.
There is a very fine one page discussion on evaluating electric clutches at this site:

http://www.messicks.com/Articles/FixingElectricClutch.aspx

My JD tech manual, which covers the entire LA 100 series, agrees with the electrical specifications. It states that the Electric PTO Clutch should show the following:
  • Resistance 3.7 ohms
  • Current Draw 3.25 amps.
It does not give the air gap. It does include a note to check the PTO Clutch Key for damage or if missing. So there is a drive key between the PTO Clutch and the shaft. Additionally, it recommends checking the tightness of the cap screw. That's the screw or bolt that holds the clutch on the shaft.

Blades won't engage after got stuck in mud electronic pull on blade engagement


Blades would not turn after I got stuck in mud. Electric clutch.

  • Turn the engine off and remove the key.
  • Check for physical damage; anything look bent?
  • Is the deck belt intact?
  • Spin the pulley on the bottom of the clutch. Does it spin freely?
  • There could be mud or grit stuck in the clutch.
  • There is a drive key between the clutch and the shaft. Has this key been sheared?
  • When you pull the PTO switch does the clutch make a "click"? It's possible the clutch was burnt out during the mud incidence.

Just replaced pto clutch brand new ,wont engage.nothing, zip not a movement.


Check that you are getting voltage to the wires that connect to the clutch when you switch on the pto. If not check that you are getting voltage to the pto switch. If you are the pto switch is faulty. Regards Phil

MOWER blades WILL NOT SHUTOFF


sounds like a electro clutch engage type system

maybe your electro-clutch engage switch is faulty or a wire is connected the wrong way

was the clutch replaced recenlty and was is compatiable ?

or maybe you have a faulty clutch to test try

remove plug lead from plug

disconnect wires @pto clutch and apply 12 volt directly to clutch then remove voltage - if clutch engages then disengages the clutch is good it should click on then off if it does then its a switch fault
replace pto switch

cheers paul

hope its helps

When I engage the PTO clutch, the amp light comes on my 1641 cub cadet. I have new battery, pto clutch and stator. I can mow for awhile, but when I turn the PTO clutch off, I can't engage it again because...


You need to repair either repair a poor connection from the alternator[stator], or replace the rectifier/regulater.Some systems have a inline fuse check that first.

The electric clutch on my cub cadet lt1045 does not stay running


I had the exact same issue early this mowing season on a LT1045 with 184 hours on it. On a wild hunch I lifted the seat and simply sprayed the PTO shut-off safety switch with electronic contact cleaner/enhancer and have had to problems since.

Mower pto engages when initially started but after


the coil in the electric PTO shorts out when it expands by heat causing it to lose it's magnetic pull and disengages- I hate to say it,but you need a new PTO clutch.
