I am baffeled by this... everything was working fine the last time I used it, about a week ago. I cleaned it up as ussual and put it in the shed. Today I got it out and it started fine, the engine runs fine, the electrical system seems to be working as it's an electric start and the head lights came on as ussual. But when I pulled the PTO switch out.... nothing. Pulled the fuel tank to get to the back of the control panel and try to find the fuse that the book says is there. Found some square In-line thing that says it's a double fuse, a 20A 12VDC and a 10A 12VDC. Have no idea IF that is a fuse, or how to tell if it is bad. And then, not sure if that is even the problem. Could be the switch in the control module itself. Basically, I have no idea where to start looking or how to test stuff to see what the problem is and I don't want to get into replacing things if they aren't the problem. I got this machine new in January 2010 and it is an "09" modle. Other than changing the blades and the deck belt, it's run like a champ and this is the first real problem I've run into. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
