Blowing fuses on my Hustler zero turn

On a hot mower condition, after I have been mowing a while and mower has been stopped for a few minutes, trying to restart, blows the 10 Amp safety circuit fuse. Will blow continuously. Have to put a 15 Amp in (which I don't like to have to do) its place to get the mower to at least start back up.Have checked all connections. Ohmed out safety switches, relays, Checked for pinched/ frayed wires. I'm assuming I am shorting out somewhere, but I can't find it. Any ideas?

Welcome to the forums.

Not the pro here and just happened to be reading this but I've seen similar problems before.
Does the fuse blow as soon as you crank the mower ?
If yes.... it sounds like the solenoid is bad especially when you say it starts with a 15A fuse.

If it were a short... it would blow the 15A fuse too.
