Check to see if any oil leaks between rear wheels where the tractor was parked. Also make sure hydrostatic disengage lever, at rear of tractor by hitch, has to be pushed in.

SOURCE: Blades will not engage
Lever that adjusts height does not make blades turn. You need to engage the blade lever and if you can not tell if the blades are turning then they probably aren't. check belt it could need replacement.

Hi Paul It sounds like the belt is worn, stretched, or possibly just two long for your machine. Save yourself a lot of aggrivation by checking your operator manual and getting exactly the right belt for your mower.
You don't say how old your machine is but if it has been mowing for many, many hours, the tensioning spring may need to be replaced. If that is the case you can order a new one at Sears.com

The simplest way, is to take hold the belt, with the tension from the engine pully/clutch mechanism, then to follow the shape around the rest of the cutter mechanism. (You don't have to worry which direction the belt travels,)
Bearing in mind, the tensioner direction.
Then, you will see the correct route, very quickly:)
Hope you can manage, with that.
