Problem with eletric clutch

I changed the oil in my mower ( YTD24Y48 ) and spilled some of the oil on the deck. Now I'm having problems with the electric clutch engaging. When you turn it on, the blades will turn slowly for a few seconds then it just stops. There is a loud clicking when the blades are engaged and disengaged. Other than that the mover runs fine. It's only a year and half old. You can disconnect the belt and the spindle rotates freely. Any ideas? Thanks

The clutch is dependent on friction to work. Oil is designed to eliminate friction as much as possible. Put oil on a clutch... no workie. Clean the clutch disk mating area with carburetor cleaner or brake cleaner in a spray can.
