Checked all connections

    I do have the OPC handle engaged. However, the second i attempt to lower the blade, the engine shuts off. Wondered if there is an issue with the OPC detection. I checked cables and everything appears to be connected. Other thoughts?

    Thank you!

Hello,
I have attached an image for the edger model 986103. Notice in the picture that number 4 is a handle. It is called an operator presence control (OPC) this handle must be help down to prevent the engine from shutting off. Do this and your problem should go away.

Best,

Joe

Blades will not engage on Ariens A22A46


Some Ariens mowers have electric clutches. You can check for it and wiring to it. Maybe a wire is disconnected, wore thru etc. It sounds like it's not engaging.

Ariens model 915111. Blades will not engage. Using a light voltage device. I placed the probe inside the socket which was connected to the pto clutch and it lit up. Can you tell me what part needs


If your receiving power at the PTO clutch and it is the correct voltage ie. 12vdc then you will need a new PTO clutch assembly.

Why won't the blades engage on my Ariens 911403


Chances are the deck drive belt has been knocked off one of the pulleys or the drive clutch won't engage properly. With the spark plug wire removed, rotate the blades by hand and make sure they both move together. This verifies the blade linking belt is OK. Now engage the blade operating control and feel for resistance as you rotate the blades. If you feel no change in resistance, remove the belt cover and reinstall the drive belt over the pulleys and tensioner/clutch mechanism.

Have a 1540 zero turn. runs fine till you engage the electric clutch to mow.backfires and won't run right. runs fine when you shut of mower blade drive


the electric clutch sometimes jumps of the steel retention dowl. That then pulls the wires and stops the motor. You will need to remove the clutch and reposition it over the dowl. You will also need to re-fit the electric connections. Watch out for the fuse as this will often blow.

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.

Ariens ezr1742 mower blades do not engage....noticed after went over a stump.


The common cause of this problem is that one of the safty switches has come dis-connected or has failed since most every newer mower has a electric clutch controlling the mower deck PTO there are safties bilt in under the seat and in other locations to make sure everything is ok before the blades engage, easiest way to test this is to run a jumper from the positive post of the battery to the input wire on the electric clutch assembly making sure all other wires ade dis-connected from the clutch and see if the blades engage if so then usint a continuity tester check all the wires and switches to this item to check for a faulty switch or broken wire. Thanks Don
