My zero turn cub cadet was going beautifully and with no apparent reason the cutters stopped  It might be a lack of power to the electric clutch .But where to check it ?

:wave: Welcome to the forum! Which model zero turn is this? That will help us figure out things, maybe find a wiring diagram for for it.

Welcome to GTT. Try a simple test light to see if electricity is getting to the clutch. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome! There could be a bad connection somewhere in the clutch circuit which often includes safety switches. Without knowing anything about the tractor I would start with a good visual inspection looking for the fuse panel to check the fuses as well as damaged, burnt or disconnected wires. Good luck with the repair.

Welcome to GTtalk! with your engine off, disconnect the 

plug (between clutch and wire harness, ) you may have to have a helper sitting on seat because of seat switch.

test light between chassie ground and your harness... should light. would be very helpful to know the model.

:ditto: on all above with one addendum.
You will need to check for both power and a good ground.
Many of those clutches have a ground connection only thru the harness, a loss of either hot or ground will give you the same symptom in this situation.
