Question about Garden
Hello, Try listening for a click from the electric pulley clutch when you activate the blades. There should be a fuse holder close to the battery with an Automotive style colored fuse. If that is not blown, then unplug the connector for the electric clutch and use an Ohmmeter to check the wires from the clutch side of the connection. There should be continuity in the clutch.
If there is no continuity the clutch is bad. There are a few safety switches like your seat switch which will kill the Ignition and/or the blades if you get off the machine while it is running. If your model does not kill the engine when you leave the seat, then it is wired to stop the blades from rotating when you leave the seat.
There is another switch on the clutch pedal which sometimes gets grass clippings packed around it. Some models are made so they will not let you ride the clutch pedal and cut at the same time. The clutch return can not get to its normal height because the grass clippings are packed around the safety switch. You just need to clean away the debris jamming the switch.
In conclusion, when you check the electrical parts, the safety switches may be cutting power or a ground to a Relay. You would need weight on the drivers seat to defeat the safety switch. That is why an ohmmeter is useful and unplugging each component and checking for continuity in the component is your best bet.

Two things will keep the blades from engaging. One is the mower is not charging the battery at the proper voltage. You will have to check the voltage output to the battery with a volt meter. Next to check, is the switch under the seat. This switch if not working proper or not making contact will think no one is sitting in the seat and will not allow the blades to come on. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.
