Question about Craftsman Replacement Belt for 42" Deck
It runs fine, no squeaking or squealing. I just put it on started engine and engaged blades. I checked belt and don't see anything wrong with the install.
First, you need to check to make sure you have the belt on correctly. There needs to be a tensioner holding the belt in proper tension. I have had a few deck issues where a bearing is worn out and it could be smoking when the grease gets hot. See if you can get a diagram for the belt position and check your bearings and idlers. Also make sure it is cleaned out so that you don't have a lot of grass in there that could be burning and smoking.Good luck.

Try pulling on the cable coming down to deck. This cable might be your problem. Also check that the spring on the end of this cable is present and functional.

as far as i know, there is no diagram available for the cable replacement. it is covered briefly in the owner's manual, but the best way to do it is to study carefully how the old one is routed, and replace a step at a time
