It sounds like either a critter has crawled around the unit and used it for sharpening its fangs or you had a safty switch go bad, Most newer tractors have switches on the seat and elsewhere on the tractor to make sure the mower will not start unless all safty is followed this includes sitting in the seat, and clutch pushed it or brake held on.

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
If the PTO clutch is not getting power, if the clutch solenoid is defective, or if the clutch is worn out, the lawn mower blades will not engage. The PTO clutch is not repairable—if the clutch is defective, you must replace it.
To engage the blades, be sure that your throttle or choke is in the rabbit position. Then, push the PTO or blade engage lever forward into the on position.
The PTO (or power take-off) belt is part of a pulley system that operates the blades on your riding lawn mower. It runs off the electric clutch system in your engine.
Adjust the pressure by turning the valve stem with allen wrench in the hole through the spool. Screw stem up into block for more pressure and thread it down or out of block for less pressure. Do not exceed 300 PSI or you`ll damage to clutch pack.
Powershift PTO engagement problems could be from blocked hoses or fittings, bad connections or ground or the solenoid. Mechanical PTO engagement problems could originate from low air pressure, improper cable installation or back lash too tight.

Engagement is kicked in by way of an electric PTO and belt-driven.
Most riding mowers last between 500-700 hours, although some can run for as much as 1,000 hours if cared for and maintained properly.
Power take-off (PTO) is a device that transfers an engine`s mechanical power to another piece of equipment. A PTO allows the hosting energy source to transmit power to additional equipment that does not have its own engine or motor. For example, a PTO can help run a jackhammer using a tractor`s engine.

My cub cadet has an hour glass flashing where the number of hours used. My mower is moving very slowly so i think it may be ther battery. i just had it services last week
The hour glass flashing is normal it tells you the hour meter is counting run time, if you just had it serviced last week and now it is moving slowly you may need to check the hrdrostatic fluid level or better yet take it back to the shop that serviced it and have them correct it.

Cub cadet riding mower blade won’t turn on. when you pull the blad to turn it on you can here a click but the blade won’t turn on and start spinning.
If the click you hear is the electric PTO engaging, then your deck belt is broken or off a pulley some where. Check the belt & then clarify if needed
