Default Toro Proline in-line fuse

Got a 52 inch Toro proline that the inline fuse blew and melted in the fuse holder, can I change the inline fuse (removing the old fuse/fuse holder and splicing a new one in)? I believe its grounding out around the electric clutch but I'm not certain.

Any help would be GREAT!

Yea that's what I would do. Just make sure you use the same size fuse.

What happened that led up to that? Did it just happen at once or did it melt over time? There might be another problem that caused that to happen.

I just bought the machine, the guy said it had blown a fuse, he replaced it and it worked fine. I replaced the paddle switch that engages the blades and that safety switch on the t-bar, I learned early those things go out on the prolines first or close to it. If I replace this inline fuse, tape up any places it may be grounding out, and it still acts up I know its either the wiring harness/relay or the electric clutch itself I think.

Take a picture of it before and after and show us what you do.

Also keep us posted on how this goes afterwards.

Hey guys,

I I replaced the in-line fuse, and holder and its no longer blowing the fuse. the blades will not come on though. I checked the wires from the electric clutch to the male and female connectors for knicks and splits, finding none. possibility that the ends on the connectors are bad? I'm REALLY hoping the clutch isn't going bad, knowing my luck though...

Sadly, I think shes shot. I didn't get any power from the clutch w/ motor running. Pretty sure shes shot.

You need to replace the clutch. Have you looked up a price yet?

I did. $350.00 new (whole assembly) from the local Toro supplier here in Greensboro NC. I can install it myself, but for what I paid for the machine ($500.00 with 369 hrs.) the clutch doesn't bother me as much.
