Question about Sears Garden
First thing i would do,check the water level in the battery,don't have to on a " Maintenance Free " battery. Remove both cables,from the battery,clean the cables with a wire brush,especial made for this.There can be a small film of acid oxidation deposit forming,that get into the cable clamps and the battery posts.This causes the cables not to make good contact with the posts. There is something else you can do and that,is use a portable battery charger. Try to charge up the battery with that,this would eliminate the tractor's charging system causing the problem. If this battery won't take a charge or hold a charge,the battery is bad.Hope this helps.Sincerely,Brad Locke DTD 12/04/15

Sounds like you have a wire grounding to the frame somewhere. Check the wires to see if you see any bare spots or frays. www.nnyparts.com

Double check the belt routing. Drop the deck so you can get a view of everything and make sure the actuation pulley is actually engaging when you put it in gear. You'll also want to check the rear of the mower for a bypass switch. They started including a switch, it's more like a wire that activates a small lever, that allows you to move by putting it into neutral bypassing the transmission. If you don't have that switch then it is most likely the belt not routing correctly or the transmission. If it was working before you changed the belt then most likely the problem is the belt not being routed correctly.
