They wear out. How old is the mower? Mine just gave out this week in the peak of hay season. (my grass) The wire can be unhooked from the PTO clutch and a 12 volt jumper can test it, if it jumps, it is good, if not, it is shorted out, they are expensive, I found 3 of them all the wrong size for mine. Try to find the same one. Ebay has a couple on there right now. Check it out.

SOURCE: Eletric PTO is not working
The PTO draws a pretty good current, so a weak or loose contact in the switch, or in the connections on the back of the switch, could cause this overheating. But it could also happen if the PTO clutch itself or the wiring to it has a short. If the mower's still under warranty, get the dealer to diagnose and fix it. If not, then I'd measure the resistance of the PTO clutch - should be about 2 ohms - and make sure the wiring to it isn't shorted. If all that is OK, then just replace the PTO switch and any melted connectors and wiring. Good luck!
