Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
Can you get the model numbers for your mower, from under your mower seat? I would like to pull up a wiring schematic.
Are these the number from under your mower seat?
In order to be specific with your mower, I will need the numbers from under your seat. you and I need to determine if you are getting power to your pto clutch.
Thanks for this information. I would like to help you troubleshoot our problem, but without a wiring schematic, it will be difficult.
I do not mind waiting. Take your time.
Thank you. Can you give me a minute to pull up your mower?
You stated that you replaced your relay. Can you hear it click?
Your pto clutch gets its ground via your relay.
The part with five tangs, is your relay. Do you have a 12 volt test light, or a multimeter?
Can you borrow one from someone, so you and I can do some troubleshooting?
That is your seat safety switch. Do you know if it is still connected?
I understand now. That is your starter solenoid. It will not affect the performance of your pto clutch. I wish you had a test light or a multimeter.
Probably the hand with the wishes ...
Are you familiar with using jumper wires?
the reason I asked is, because there is a white wire going to your pto clutch. This is your ground wire. We need to determine if it has lost its ground. If you run a jumper wire from your frame to your white wire, this will tell us if your ground wire is at fault.
We need to only jump the one white wire, then turn your key switch on, and your pto switch on, to see if your pto clutch will come on.
That is correct. With a meter of some sort, we could determine if your power wire is at fault, or if your ground wire is at fault.
If you remove just a little of the insulation from your wire, you can use a spare piece of wire, as a jumper to your frame. According to your wiring schematic, you have a White Wire, and a Blue/White wire going directly into your pto clutch.
It could, but we cannot confirm this without a meter. I do not like replacing parts unless they are actually at fault.
I agree. I would rather not replace it if it is not at fault.
No problem. Take your time.
I am not sure about that indicator.
