Check the PTO switch and belt(s) If your switch is working properly and belt(s) are good You can adjust the clutch per your owners manual and see if and or how long that helps.
Ultimately you will need to put the new clutch on the unit.

Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Check to make certain that you are getting voltage to the electric clutch. If not then you will want to check the PTO switch to make certain that it is working properly. If you are getting 12 VDC to the electric clutch then you may have to replace the electric clutch. Some of these clutches are adjustable but not all of them. If it has a triangular plate with three studs on it then you can adjust it to .012 inches clearances at the three adjustment slots in the plate and see if this solves your issue, if it is none adjustable or this adjustment does not make it work then you will need to replace the electric clutch.

If you have any further questions feel free to ask.

Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
