    One of our 5111s is having an issue with the left deck not shutting off.
    there is a magnetic proximity switch that should turn it off when the deck is lifted, but for some reason it isn't.
    it still shuts off when you turn off the main switch, but if you just lift the deck, it stays running.
    I tried another proximity switch, but it didn't change anything.

    any ideas?

    Check for power at the proximity switch and also a good ground, Could be a pinched wire from being raised up and down.

    Our Toro 580D has done that a couple of times. Both times were just a short in the wire to the switch.
