belts usually come off for a few reasons.
They become loose...stretch or the tensioner moves,  Make sure that none of the tightening bolds are slipping.  You can dab them with a bit of paint.
when the pulleys are not in alignment or crooked or bent.  Eyeball the path from one pulley to another, also make sure the tensioner is in alignment and there are no other obstructions.
good, high quality belts are required, and they must be real drive belts...not regular v belts.  If there is a way to watch the belt in operation you can usually see what's going wrong.
On my lawnmower I had to grind some metal away where the belt went from the motor to the transmission.  Good luck

SOURCE: how do i replace a drive belt on a troy bilt self propelled lawn

You turn the mower over, remove the blade with a 9/16 or 5/8 socket. There is a bolt holding shroud on, 3/8 or 7/16, there are two screws by the rear wheels, 7/16 that need to be removed. Once the shroud is removed, belt can be removed and new one put on.

You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

You may want to look under the deck. They sometimes put them there. And if it is a self propelled, you will probably need to remove or loosen the plastic cover that protects the self propelled belt.

You are looking for a nickel sized plug that has a square peg. Use an extension piece for a socket set if you don't have the proper plug removal tool.

Belts wont move


I would check to make sure that that the belt isn't pinched somewhere around the pulleys. See if they are movable with mower disengaged and off. If they are hard to move, they most likely have pressure keeping them from moving.
They would create a burning smell even though they are not moving. The main pulley while engaged does rotate and if the belt is touching but not moving, it will rub enough to make the odor.

Riding mower engine loud and smoking.


take it to a reputable shop and have them check it over - courage engines had a problem when they first came out - the bolts in the cover plate were not torqued properly and when they come loose, the torque of the engine turning will crack the block - this should be a warranty condition if the block is cracked - just make sure the shop is a kohler warranty station

I put a new belt on my Troy Bilt Lawn Mower and I used it to mow lawn and it chewed the new belt up


Is belt routed correctly.
Check pulleys for wear and if they spin freely
Check belt tension. Lack of sufficient tension will throw belt and destroy it
