Sounds like you may have sheared the key, which is located under the flywheel. If you are trying to remove the bolt that holds the blade make sure to disconnect the spark plug first. When I have had a stubborn blade, I try and find someone to hold the blade while I either use a good quality wrench or if need be a good vise grip. You can always take the bolt somewhere and find a replacement if you mess it up.

Saw blade stuck

Do you have the exact model of your saw handy?

Also, try some PB Blaster instead of WD40, it works much better at freeing up rusted or stuck parts. Let it sit a couple of hours and spray it a few times

Under each blade is one single nut holding each blade on. It is not left-hand thread and there is nothing special about it.
Standard thread - Standard hardware - Standard tools. (If memory serves, you need a 15/16" socket to remove these.)
There is no need to index or time the blades. They cannot hit together unless something is bent or damaged on your mower deck.

Hope this helps,

42 deck craftsman riding mower. how do you get blades off? md 91721880.

On most riding lawnmowers, you can remove the blades reaching underneath the deck while the deck is set to its highest position. This may not be possible on lawnmowers with three blades; however, most 42 inch mowers have two blades.

The blades are usually held on with either one or two bolts (on each blade). Oftentimes, too, there is a lock washer underneath the bolt.

If you have auto ramps, it might help to push the front end of the mower up on the ramps. This can give you more room to access the blade bolts.

If the blades have not been removed before, those bolts can be on really tight. You might need to use some kind of breaker bar on your wrench to give you more leverage.

How do you change the blades on a 40" riding lawnmower by murray?

Raise up the mower to give yourself access to the blades from the bottom side of the deck. Using a breaker bar or long ratchet and socket, remove the nut (either 7/8 or 15/16 can't remember which) and large flat washer from the shaft. Install the new blades in the reverse order.
If the blades turn while you are trying to "break" them free, you can use a small 2x4 block of wood or a c-clamp on the side of the deck to hold the blade from turning until the nut is freed up

I have an A680L John deere riding lawnmower. The transmission does not seem to engage. It burns the belts.

Burning belts sounds like something is locked up. Make sure there's nothing wrapped around any of the blades and that they turn freely.

Motors starts but nothing else happens

There should be some kind of button and an handle both should be pressed and only then the blade should rotate .
Thats the way it works in my electric lawnmover i guess it more or less the same in all of them .

hope it helps

Reassembling blades on hedge trimmer

the blades are stuck , i spray my trimmer with wd40 before every use to keep them juicy you should too. also sometimes if you hit a large stick it will put a divot in the blade cause ing it to stick. as for putting it together, find some one who can do it without directions. but when you use them next make sure you soak em good with wd40 or something if you dont i guarantee they will always stick. wd40 willl not hurt any shrubbery, as ive been doing it for years.
