Question about Husqvarna Garden
This unit probably has a safety switch built into it and it could be below the gas tank. If this switch isn't adjusted properly then it's designed to cut off the motor. I think you should concentrate on that before attempting anything else.

It sounds as though you have tried resetting the brake to no avail. If I were you any Monday through Friday at 1300 - 1500 I would be in my local Husky dealer (not Lowes). Someone familiar with the saw that can see and touch it. I suspect you will need parts once the problem is isolated, order them there and the diagnosis will probably be gratis. Factor in the shipping and handling fee and most dealer prices are competitive.
If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Good Luck. HTH

Hi, first charge or replace the battery if necessary then check that the mower is charging the battery. The pto is probably fine but it needs battery voltage to engage. If the mower has stopped charging the battery may have had enough voltage to hold the pto in until you disengaged it but not enough to re engage it. Regards Phil.

Before you do anything else check to make sure the blades are engaged on thier seat ( the star) and the blade bolts are tight.
If you have an electric PTO this does not apply to you.
After confirming that your blades are tight check the operation of the PTO cable and the pivot bracket by lowering the deck all the way. Laying on the ground on the discharge side of the mower you will be able to look at the components and see and touch whats not moving freely as you engage and disengage the PTO lever. Look for a stiff PTO cable, stiff pivot bracket, missing return spring, broken spindle brackets and broken deck bracket welds.
Of course you should never work on any mechanical device while it is running.
