Hi Jeff, If you look at the deck, one or more of those pulleys is a tensioner, It pushes against the belt to tighten it, The rest of the pulleys can be identified by the fact that they only have a bolt through the middle, whereas the tensioner is mounted on an adjustable arm with a slot to allow adjustment. It should also be the only one that the belt doesn't go around the pully it just pushes on one side.If the tensioner arm is all the way to the end of the slot, the belt is streched and will need replaced but sounds like it may have come loose. Some of these decks also have a spring on the tensioner arm and those come off from a stick or other debris. Check it out and if you have a problem let me know and I will try to come up with a diagram. If your mower is that new there should be a belt diagram on the deck. i will need a model number of the deck or mower for that. Good luck!

maybe the safty switch under seat might be starting to go out if that switch doesn't work the blades wont come on at all for safety

Sounds like the seat safety switch is shorted or worn out. You can test it with a short length (about 6") of wire. Strip about a half inch from each end of the wire, unplug the connector under the seat and plug your "jumper" wire in to each side of the connector (NOT the seat switch) If it now works, replace the seat switch

Testimonial: "Thanks. The problem was the seat safety switch was loose and not fully engaged. When I plugged it in correctly, everything worked!!! Thanks again."
did you try depressing the clutch to disengage everything regardless of being in neutral? and it sounds like a pulley bearing went bad.try to spin the pulley with your hand and see if it moves.take the belt off to the mower deck and that should keep them from turning when you go to start it.
