Solution

I am having the exact same problem. Would you be so kind as to tell me what your solution was. I have already replaced the switch thinking that was it, but once I mow for about 45 minutes.......the blades disengage. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated...........

It usually happens after running for a 1/2 hour or so - nice and hot. It never disengages when in use. Also, every once in a while a little jolt will kick it on. The blade-clutch is not loose, the bolt that holds it is on tight.

I am going to clean the contacts on the switch, but they look to be ok as I said.

Any other thoughts or ideas would help.

Thanks

I doubt you will get any reply from any of these guys, I have been on here most every day for over a year and never seen them post.

Have you performed all the checks they spoke of ?
If not that would be the thing to do, If you have any questions about anything they posed read this; http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=144040 and do as stated and someone here can probably help.

Oh, Next time start your own thread.....most people won't even read these old threads.

And lastly welcome to LawnSite.

Thanks for calling this to my attention Rob.

I'm afraid I did _not_ notice the age of the post until you mentioned it.

I can suggest a fix.
The wires break, I would propose, because of vibration. If you could silicone, or clamp, two inches, more or less, of the wires, where they "disappear" into the housing (of anything, not just clutches) to the frame or some other non-vibrating member, then the wire can break off someplace else without resulting in required replacement of more expensive component. Does that make sense?
Also, you can probably prevent any and all insulation cracking/disintegration by spraying, three times a year, with fluid film or Black Magic tire wet, which is an astonishing product IMHO.
