PTO switch does not engage mower blade on JD LX173

While cutting my lawn this evening the blade just stopped. Tractor starts and runs fine, but mower blades will not engage. Anyone have any thoughts as to the cause? Thank you. Dennis

Do we have to guess what the details are ? Should I assume it has an electric PTO clutch and you haven't check the wires to see if one fell off the switch ?

I'm sorry. Yes, it's an electric PTO. I did look behind the switch and there does not appear to be any loose wires. Thank you.

Well - keeping it simple - have you checked the switch to see if it is still working ? Is there a fuse in the line ? Is there a good ground ?

see if you have 12 volts at the clutch when engaged. if so it needs a clutch and they are expensive. i've done a lot of deere clutches over the years. Chip
