    This appears to be a common problem. My past SuperZ did it (melted), a friend of mine's Mini did it two weeks ago (just quit working), and now my latest SuperZ is doing it. About every ten times I try to start the blades, I have to get off and wiggle the connection down at the clutch, then pull the button and it hits. I'm going to my dealer tomorrow afternoon if it lasts that long.

    I do.
    You should have a e-mail from our service manager, he sent you one on Wednesday afternoon.

    You need a new pigtail. When something ( sticks) catches the wires it pulls the clamp loose that holds the connection. I put "die electric" grease in the connection and tape the wires so nothing can get at them. Its a "bad" setup, too unprotected for wires to be in that area.

    I had to find this old thread to see how long it's been, looks like 5 weeks and now my mower is broke down AGAIN!! This is really getting old, My dealer is dropping off a new pigtail in the A.M. I'll add this to the list of aggravations and the hours I've spent throwing pieces and parts at this machine striving to get it right....:dizzy:

    Mine had a hole burn thru it right where the wires are exposed the end of the plug. I repaired it and coated the wires with liquid electrical tape then wrapped it with E Tape and so far so good. But I have a spare from my dealer that I did the same thing too. Don't put one back on it that has bare wires exposed before the clutch. Hopefully that will take care of it.
