SOURCE: Craftsman 18.5 riding mower when I engage the

craftsman decks have a positive stop adjustment for the decks. A spring atached to the blade ingadgement arm pulls the tension pully into position if the cable is rusted inside the sleeve it wont put enough pull on the ingadgment pully and thus the blades dont spin full force the belts on the mowers have no adjustments only the pully . second thing is you may want to drop the deck and clean around that pully by scraping any rust off the surface under the pullys slide good luck

SOURCE: Craftsman zero turn - blades won't engage

The PTO switch contacts to operate the clutch that starts the blades is defective. I have replaced mine and the new one just failed again. Sears must know this is a defect problem but so far they are quiet about the problem

When turning on pto blows the fuse


Look over the entire wiring harness wherever it may be touching metal as it probably is chaffed, simply tape and zip tie it away from the ground source.

I have a John Deere l130 and the mower blades engage when I start the engine even when the PTO switch is off. Any suggestions?


sounds like you have feed going directly from switch as soon as you turn ingition to start mode ?

check wiring back from electric clutch to main switch

possible 2 wires have been placed on main switch instead of pto switch ?

or you have a crossed circuit somewhere (that is feed from another live circuit) not directly connected and its ended up at electric clutch as soon as you liven main circuit


a wiring diagram may help

check with www.johndeere.com
or www.jdparts and enter their site load your model and type
and go to electrical system and print out a copy of wiring diagarm

you may need to supply and user name and apply for password from john deere via their site apply on line

its a good site for info and parts diagrams


cheers hope it helps

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!

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.
