Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. By chance do you know what functions are 4 that 10 amp. fuse? Is there a chart on your fuse holder and if not let me know as I will have to see if I can look that up for you when I get back to my desk as I mobile at the moment.

Also let me know under what conditions does the fuse blow and if it is only when you have the mower pto engaged or will it also happen just driving the mower or just running at Idle? All of the above? Knowing this will be helpful in determining which components or what area of the wiring harness might be shorting out causing that fuse to blow.

Ok so far it blows wjile tje pto is engaged. When it starts i stary mowing thonling tje problem is fixed. As of right now im waiting for it to cool down to sysrt it again.

the hour meter lights up when the switch is turned on. When you try to start it no sound as far as starter noise goes. But if the switch is in the on position, the PTO switch clicks when pulling it on or off.

There is nothing in the electrical of this mower that should get hot and have to cool down before it will restart. Need to check it when it quits, and see if you can spin the engine, by jumping the starter solenoid .where the positive battery cable goes to, and jump the cable terminal to the single small switch terminal on the same solenoid. This is a test of the battery, the cables, the starter solenoid and the starter.

If it turns the engine, then we need to check the key switch and the wire harness and relays. We can continue from here.
