 2186 deck Disengaging

Today when I was trying to mow my lawn the deck kept disengaging. I suppose it is some switch that is suppose to protect me from myself. It is quite frustrating. Any suggestions as to how to identify or check for the problem and is there a way to by-pass so I can use the machine?

Most newer tractors hav an seat interlock so if you stand up or evenlift your weight momentarily such as going down a steep grade it may disengage pto and or stop engine.just one thing to check. start it up engage pto then lift your butt and see what happens. Ron

Some electric PTO clutches will start disengaging after being run because of heat. Yours is old enough!

The electric clutch has a certain gap range that it operates in. If the gap is too tight, the clutch will not disengage. If the gap is too much, it will disengage. The clutch is a spring loaded device in the pulley and has 3 bolts that can be tightened. I believe there is a service manual describing the procedure.
