John Deere Gt275

the blades no longer engage when I pull the knob? (fuses are OK)? Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

First thing to do is check and make sure the drive belt is on the clutch pulley and mower deck.

Neck check to see if your getting power to the clutch when you engage the pto switch. If you follow the wires from the electric clutch on the bottom of the engine you will find a plug, disconnect the plug and using a 12volt test light or multimeter, turn the key on and activate the blade switch, you should have power at the plug. If you have no power you will need to trace back through the pto switch to find out where the current stops.

IF you have power to the clutch, then the clutch may need to be adjusted or the clutch may need to be replaced.

I had the same tractor for 12 years and the last year before I sold it, the PTO switch went bad. When you pull the plug off the back of the PTO switch do not confuse the safety wiring with the power feed. The seat switch works with the PTO switch so that if the nobody is on the seat the tractor will stall. On my switch the feed did not come out of the switch to feed the clutch. GOOD LUCK.
