SOURCE: Craftsman 18.5 riding mower when I engage the

craftsman decks have a positive stop adjustment for the decks. A spring atached to the blade ingadgement arm pulls the tension pully into position if the cable is rusted inside the sleeve it wont put enough pull on the ingadgment pully and thus the blades dont spin full force the belts on the mowers have no adjustments only the pully . second thing is you may want to drop the deck and clean around that pully by scraping any rust off the surface under the pullys slide good luck

I have the same tractor. If you have the transmission in <reverse> this will happen every time. It's a safety feature. Be sure the tractor is in <neutral> or one of the 6 forward gears.

How to fix my craftsman riding mower, whcih dies after engaging blade


make sure blades not jammed. with mower off, try turning blades by hand.
it could either be a safety switch in the seat or for the reverse paddle.
make sure its not in reverse when you attempt to engage blades.
you should be able to bypass both switches with a jumper wire for testing purposes. if it works with jumper, replace the switch(s).

Blade not cutting. How can I adjust? Craftsman model 358.796480


When the blades are engaged do they turn? It could be a belt is loose tha causes the blades not to spin. Check the handle that engages the mower deck to see if it goes into the proper slot which would cause the blades to spin.

My YTS 3000 will run but the blades won't engage. Engagement lever is really hard to push up but when I try to engage blades, nothing. Could it be the cable?


Find where the cable is connected to the deck. Have someone move the lever and watch the end. Does it look rusted or bent?
Unclip the cable at the deck. Then try the cable. If it moves freely there is something rusted, bent or broke on the engage pulley mechanism on the top of the deck.

Maybe the wire to the seat switch came off or broke, or the switch came loose from vibration. Have you checked?

Check the drive belt. It has probably broken or has come loose.
