Start by checking to see if you have pulled one of the electric wires loose that acts as a safety to disengage the clutch. Check all wires to make sure none are pulled loose. Then check all wires to see that none are bare and contacting metal (grounding out) causing the mower deck to not operate. This happens often.

1- the clutch mechanism may be obstructed - check above mower assembly and clear obstructions;

2- mower clutch engagement switch may be faulty - replace if needed;

3- the mower drive belt may be loose, damaged or disengaged - repair, adjust or replace belt;

4- the idler pulley could be frozen - replace;

5- the blade mandrel may be frozen - replace.

Check the wiring at the clutch itself. There should be a quick connector right near the clutch itself. You can test these wires to see if you have 12 volts coming out of them when the PTO switch is pulled out. You can also check the clutch by using jumper wires and running them directly to the clutch. Once connected you should hear an audible click of the clutch engaging. If you get nothing then the clutch has gone bad on you.

If you hear a click while you run down 12v from battery down to clutch lead.Then there is a confirm break or cut in the wirings.

There is something between the battery and the clutch that is not allowing power to come through to the clutch. USe a test light or meter and trace the wiring back from the clutch to the switch, then from the switch back to the battery.


--------------

Most likely, the problem is a safety switch. Sometimes its a "seat switch" which prevents the blades from engaging if the operator isn't sitting down.

How to Troubleshoot Riding Lawnmower Problems When it is time to mow the lawn, and the old, faithful lawnmower just doesn't want to get the job done, you may need to do some maintenance or repair on the machine. Here are some steps to guide you in troubleshooting a few common problems.

Steps 1.Check the basic mower functions to determine where you need to look to diagnose the problem you are having with your mower. Here are the basic parts of a typical mower:
  • Engine
  • Belts and pulleys
  • Mower deck
  • Wheels and axle assemblies
  • Blades
  • Transmission/drive system
  • Safety system
2. Check each part of the mower to make sure it is working. First, you must make sure the engine is running. This should be obvious, and no other part of the machine will work if the engine won't start. Here is a checklist to get started diagnosing engine problems.
  1. Check the crankcase lubricant (motor oil). Many modern engines have an oil sensor that shuts off the engine if the oil level is too low for it to operate safely.
  2. Check the fuel. You may want to check the fuel pump, filter, and fuel lines for leaks or blockages.
  3. Check the air filter. Dirty air filters rob the engine's performance, and if the filter is sufficiently stopped up, it will not allow it to crank.
  4. Check the carburetor. Make sure all linkages and attachment bolts/screws are tight.
  5. Check the starting system if the mower is equipped with electric start. This includes the battery, battery cables, solenoid switch, ignition switch, starter motor, and neutral switch if equipped.
3. Check the drive belt system if the mower doesn't move or the blades will not rotate when they are engaged. This can be done by lowering the mower deck and removing any debris that obstructs your view. Here are some things you will be looking for:
  • The main drive belts should go from a pulley on the bottom of the engine to the mower deck drive pulley and to the transmission/transaxle. These should be tight when they are engaged, and loose when the clutch is depressed (transmission drive belt), and when the mower is disengaged (mower deck drive belt). Obvious things to look for are damaged or broken belts, or loose pulleys.
  1. Check wiring to the electric mower drive clutch if the machine is equipped with one.
  2. Check linkages that operate the belt idler pulleys and transmission shifter.
4. Check the lubricant in the transaxle when the mower is serviced. The bearings and gears in lawnmower transaxles will quickly become damaged if they do not receive sufficient lubrication.

5. Check the tires and axles if the mower seems underpowered or the steering doesn't seem to be operating properly. Front wheels often have grease fittings that extend the life of the wheel bearings or bushings, and when these are worn excessively, steering will operate well.

6. Keep your mower's blades sharp and balanced. This not only provides a better cut, but also decreases wear and tear on the machine. Here are things to look for to spot problems with the blades.
  • Uneven or ragged cutting is often a sign of worn, dull, or bent blades.
  • Vibration underneath the mower deck can indicate blades which are out of balance (or damaged spindles on the blade carriers) and should be repaired promptly.

Why won't the blades engage on my Ariens 911403


Chances are the deck drive belt has been knocked off one of the pulleys or the drive clutch won't engage properly. With the spark plug wire removed, rotate the blades by hand and make sure they both move together. This verifies the blade linking belt is OK. Now engage the blade operating control and feel for resistance as you rotate the blades. If you feel no change in resistance, remove the belt cover and reinstall the drive belt over the pulleys and tensioner/clutch mechanism.

How to adjust a loose mower deck drive belt?


check your pulleys to make sure they haven't split as this does happen. Adjust the belt tensioner to tighten the belt when you engage the clutch to drive the mower. You should be able to see the belt tensioner by dropping the cutting deck to its lowest point and looking underneath the mower to see which pulley actually puts the tension on the belt to make it drive. there is no need to start the mower to find which pulley needs to be adjusted, it should be obvious when you look at the belt and the pulleys.
Hope this helps you

I have a 42 inch troy-bilt riding mower the blades won't disengage.


Sounds like either the switch for the blades is not shutting off the power to the electric clutch or the clutch itself is not disengaging. I would shut the mower off and unplug the wire to the electric clutch and then start the mower and make sure the blades do not turn you may have the belt for the blades on the wrong pulley and it might be causing the blades to turn. Hope this helps.

John Deere X304 PTO Engagement Problem When Warm


Hi, check your belt tension, check all idler pulleys and drive pulleys for free rotation with the belt off and finally check that the belt is not bottoming out in any of the drive pulleys. If so, replace the belt. The blades should come up to speed imediately wether hot or cold and it sounds like your belt is slipping in one or more of the pulleys which drags the motor revs down until it grips. Regards Phil.

The belt dry rotted and flew off without me being able to remove it myself, now I need to know how to install the new drive belt.


To install the drive belt you will have to remove the drive belt first.
Follow the procedure: ---
Park the tractor on a level surface. Set the parking brake and remove the key from the ignition. Study the belt replacement guide decal located underneath the left foot board for proper belt routing instructions.
Remove the mowing deck by first moving the attachment clutch lever to the disengaged position (toward you). Move the attachment lift lever all the way forward to lower the mower housing to its down position.
Crawl beneath the tractor and roll the drive belt off engine pulley (it hangs directly beneath the engine). Remove small retainer clip that holds the clutch spring to the pulley bolt located at the center of the mowing deck. Remove the large retainer springs (two of them), then slide the belt collar away from the mower housing and off the housing bracket.
Disconnect the anti-sway bar rods from the chassis brackets by removing the retaining cotter pins. Disconnect front links from the mower deck by removing retaining cotter pins. Disconnect the suspension arms from the rear mower deck brackets by removing the two cotter pins.
Move the attachment lift lever all the way to the forward position to raise the mower suspension arms to the full up position. Slide the mower deck out from beneath the tractor.
Crawl beneath the tractor and roll the drive belt off of the stationary idler pulley and the clutching idler pulley. They are both located immediately adjacent to the engine pulley. Be sure the belt is already away from the engine pulley, as well.
Push the drive belt slack toward the rear of tractor. Remove the drive belt from the Trans axle pulley by taking it over the trans axle pulley while compressing the movable belt keepers surrounding it. Remove the old belt from the tractor by pushing it clear of the center span keeper (located beneath the Trans axle pulley).
Install a new drive belt by following the reverse of the instructions for removal. Test the tractor and mower for normal operation.
 Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Replaced belt for mower thought i put it all back correctly blades engage when key is turned engage lever to off what did i do wrong


If you look at the motor pulley area, there should be two different pulleys with a PTO clutch between them. The PTO clutch has wires going to it, because it is operated electrically by the blade engage switch.
It sounds like you could have accidentally put the mower deck belt onto the main drive pulley (which turns all the time) rather than the pulley that is farther out from the engine, which only turns when the engage the blade switch. If so, just loosen the mower belt and move it to the right pulley.
Good luck!

My blades wont engage and just hear click sound?


No permanent solution, but you probably can get by once by "riding" the clutch engagement lever - pushing it only part way forward and holding onto it.
