Question about Craftsman Replacement Belt for 42" Deck

1 Answer

Lt 1000 new deck belt is smoking, is there a break-in period for new belts?

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.

SOURCE: need a blade engagement cable diagram for a 2002 craftsman lt1000

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

Hi Paula, I know nothing about it, you could lift the belt and use DW40 or vegi spray where it's squeaking. Nothing beats a walk in the park. Greg.

Squeaking rotary noise from engine


It is possible you have a glazed belt - it is fine, it just slips until it warms up. If you have "V" belts, there is a belt dressing you can spray on that will cure the problem. If you have serpentine belts ( a wide belt that has several ribs on the inside ) you can us a small dab of Dielectric grease on the belt. smear a small dab across the ribs of the belt ans start the engine - the squeal should go away quickly.
Hope this helps!

Black smoke and noise when engaging deck.


Depends on where the black smoke is coming from. If it's coming from the deck then it's a belt issue, if it's coming from the engine then you have a carburetor issue. Most likely the governor isn't set up correctly or the choke isn't all the way off.

I bought a new belt for my2005 lt 1000 42" deck


for a deck no.. Most everything on the deck is done by springs.. what i would do is look at the deck make sure nothing is rubbing the belt making it rip apart.. or make it to not engage.. i would with the engine off engage the blade and disengage the blade make sure all the brakes are pulling away from the pulleys and making sure all the arms are moving to tighten the belt.. if nothing is moving then i double check the cable or however engages the deck (all mowers are different) and if need the part. If the cable is not broken and is still on deck make sure all springs are lubed. If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

When I lower the mowing deck on my Murray 17.5hp riding mower white smoke pours out and it dies. The engine runs fine until the deck is lowered.


Does it make a squealing noise then too? The white smoke is probably a belt burning up. Either you have a locked up blade spindle, or the belt is off, and rubbing. Check the deck belt(s) and the clutch assembly.
