SOURCE: mower quits when engaging mower deck of husqvarna yth 2348

Try putting a jumper wire on the wire going from the engine to the seat. Take that plug and put a wire from one side to the other. Be careful not to cut your feet off when engaging deck.

SOURCE: mower in reverse engine stops with mower engaged

Of all the safety features that have been added to newer lawn tractors, most of which are really a good thing, that one in particular is truly a pain.

To defeat it, first you will have to find it. It is a switch that detects when you are in reverse. Look at the mechanism parts that move when you are shifting, and find a part with wires on it. Once you get that far, you should see a small plunger on it that is depressed when you shift into reverse.

Next, the question is: Does it detect reverse when the switch is open (no connection between the 2 wires) or when the switch is closed (the 2 wires connected together)? If you don't have a meter, proceed as follows.

Disconnect the plug that goes to the switch, or if there isn't one, remove 1 wire from the switch making sure that it is isolated from the chassis for this test. Now start the tractor, turn on the deck and put it in reverse. Does the engine stop? If so, if there IS a plug on the wire for the switch, then look at it. Do you see 2 contacts in the end? Are they touching? Then do something so they don't. Insert a piece of plastic to insulate them from each other or whatever works. If they don't touch, then insert a piece of wire from one to the other so they do touch.

If there is not a plug on the wires, then take the 2 wires and connect them together, and wrap them in electrical tape to insulate them and attach them somehow so they cannot flop around and get caught in a belt or something else.

You can see where this is going. The idea is, if a short between the 2 wires kills the engine, then prevent that short from happening. If an open between the 2 wires kills the engine, then keep them connected together. Of course that connection is only effective when you are running the mower deck.

There are other safety features on the mower and you want to make sure that they are NOT defeated. If you get off the mower, as an example, the engine will stop. This can be a pain, but if something happens and you fall off you will definitely want that feature to work.

I have used garden and lawn tractors that have no safety features at all and frankly I would rather swing a chainsaw around when I'm tired, because it would be safer.

SOURCE: LTX1000 42" 18HP Kohler - Blowing fuse after 2-4 min mowing.

sounds as though you are on the right track
but be sure to check the wiring directly from the electric clutch on the front of the motor back to the switch
a wire could be pinched in the frame and shorting out intermittingly
look around and find those wires and move them around and look for chaffing and tightness
and what you could also do is to unhook the clutch at the connection to it at the front of the motor and engage switch and ride around and see if fuse blows and if not you may have an electric clutch issue

What causes fuse to blow every time I try to engage blades?


To engage the blades is it a knob to an electric switch that you pull?
If so does the wire from the switch activate a electric clutch?
Is the wire damaged and shorted to the frame, is the clutch shorted. If you provide the brand name and model number I might be able to find a schematic for your mower.

Would the electric clutch for the mowing deck on a wizard riding mower with a Kohler 20 hp engine cause it to act like you hit a kill switch. If it went bad ?


Not normally. Most times they short out blowing the fuse.

It sounds like the engine running fine until engage the clutch. It more likely that you have a safety switch related problem like a bad seat switch or loose connector..

John Deere 265 replaced pto switch on dash pto drive belt and mower deck belt still pto does not engage...also randomly blows 20 amp fuse from time to time when pto would engage previously...checked...


The electrical is part of the PTO clutch assembly. It should only draw 5-7 amps. Ohm reading is somewhere between 1.7 to 2.5 ohms.

These coils do short from anywhere from a partial short to completely.

Husqvarna RZ5424 deck wont engage


This is an electro magnetic clutch, it is non servisable, if you have a 12volt supply to the clutch with the pto button pulled out, and it still does not work i fear it is a new clutch required.
