    Did you check the fuse?

    if its not your fuse check the battery. this is the main cause for the clutch not engaging.

    I know it's ultra basic, but did you check that your blades aren't tied up and that the belt is in place?

    if all that fails there are 2 plug in switches in the back left hand side. I pulled mine out and greased and never happened again. Check you connections it hopefully is as simple as that.
