    When I engage the blades on my 48 charoit jr.,,,sometimes it doesn't engage when they've been turned on after shutting off. it takes 10 to 15 minutes for them to come back on. what could be the problem?

    Your problem could be one of a few things-
    1. Clutch is out of adjustment. (affects non-Mag-Stop Clutches with triangular style base)
    2. Bad Clutch switch
    3. Operator Presence control problem
    4. Bad Clutch
    5. Problem in the wiring.
