Hi
Check for burnt fuse behind dash. If no burnt fuses check if getting power to magnetic clutch mounted on bottom of engine crankshaft. Make sure wires are not broken by magnetic clutch. Make sure the safety seat switch is working. Make sure you are sitting on the seat when you try to engage the blades. If that does not work try pushing and wiggling the seat sensor. Check make sure wire is attached to safety switch under seat.

Most probably you have a wire shorting to the frame of your mower.

Trace (follow) the wires from the switch, checking for any frayed, burned, or bare wires.

Repair as needed.

i going to assume that yr tractor does have the hydrolic p.t.o. that controls the drive and cutting mechanism's???... if so you might start with checking the hydrolic fluid in the resevior. or you might check into replacing the hydrolic p.t.o. pump , if you ran the tractor in heavy work without any hydrolic fluid in the p.t.o. pump the pump is probably burnt up. if so im sure you can beat the cost of a new pump by rebuilding it yrself with a kit.

SOURCE: the blades on my craftsman 22hpohv gt5000 won't

I would check to make sure that the pullys are free. With it off reach under and see if both or more blades turn freely. If the bearing is frozen it would cause this problem.

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.

Video shows an electric clutch but yours may be different but this should give you an idea of where to look. Riding Mower Electric PTO Clutch Won Engage When Hot Problem Fix

Does model # 917.276021 have a mower lock out on the transmission


The PTO when engaged draws a lot of power from the battery. Check the battery for proper voltage. If your battery is low or say 1/2 charge, it will never engage the blades and will die every time you try to engage the blades.

check the "kill switch" they are usually located in the seating area. it senses for pressure or seat angle and will kill the mower if nobody is sitting on the mower. Good Luck

sounds like a bad PTO, that is the electrical gizmo on the bottom of the engine's driveshaft which engages the bottom pulley, running the deck. you might luck out and find the fuse is blown so follow the wire from the PTO back until you find the fat part in the wire. the fat part is an in line fuse holder with a fuse in it. if the fuse is bad and blows again, you need a new PTO
