Mower has to have 12 volts to the electric clutch. Does mower have good battery and the charging system is working? You can test the electric clutch with jumper wires direct from the battery, to see if the clutch will click in Engine does NOT have to be on.

The 240 does have a pto relay that is between the switch and the clutch. It may not be closing. # ***** in the link.
