On the top of the mower deck, there is a spring that will pull to disengage the blade idler pulley. At the same time, it will release two springloaded arms with brakes that press on the pulleys at the top of the blade spindles. On top of the mower deck at the back, the two spring loaded arms may be held out of the braking position by a cam. Make sure the cam is free to allow the blade brakes to activate when you disengage the blades. If arms are out of alignment, or the parts are too worn, the blade brakes won't move and the blades keep spinning, even after you have disengaged and the safety switch is deactivated. This is a dangerous situation and should be fixed soon. Good luck.

Check for bad bearing in clutch immediately, Remove belt, try and turn the clutch pulley if it is hard to turn or feels rough, replace the bearing in the clutch. If you do not replace bearing immediately you will be buying a $300.00 clutch very soon. I know from experience. You possibly have been hearing a loud unusual roar from engine area for awhile and wondered where it was coming from. As these bearing will usually squall a cry for awhile before they die.

SOURCE: my lawn mower will not stay started

Since it starts, it doesn't sound like an electrical problem, it sounds like it runs out of air. To test this, remove the air filter, start it and see if it stays running. If so, replace the air filter.

It could also be varnish or sludge in the carb bowl. This is best serviced by a technician if you have little mechanical prowess.

After sitting for 3 years, I would at minimum do all of this before I expected it to run ok:

  1. Change the oil.
  2. Replace the air filter.
  3. Drain the fuel tank by removing the fuel line from the engine end (not the tank end).
  4. Replace the spark plug.
If the above did not work I would drop the carb bowl and clean it, then add one ounce of carb cleaner to a full tank, and let it run (roughly if necessary) through the engine.

After sitting 3 years I would also replace the fuel line itself!

If you hit something hard enough to partially shear the key on the blade adapter, you did shear the key on the flywheel, and it will need to be replaced for the engine to run properly.

Replace the coil. Remove the top cover so that you can see the flywheel. There will be a horseshoe shaped peice with the plug wire attatched to it along with a small whir plugged onto it. Remove the two screws holding it on and unplug small wire and disconnect plug wire. When you put the new one on place a business card between coil and flywheel, this will give you the proper spacing, reconnect small wire and plug wire, reassemble top covers and you are good to go.

I struck an object while mowing my yard and the tractor wont start or even crank what could the problem be?


start by disengaging the blade and putting the deck to it's highest position, prior to attempting to start the mower inspect under the mower deck making sure there is no Debee wedged interfering with the blade rotation, check your spindle's for play and inspect your mower and drive belts. once complete than give it a try. if by chance it does start but turns over you more than likely sheered the flywheel key.

Blades won't disengage.


If this is a riding mower, then check the cable tension around the belt. I have a craftsman and when I take the deck off for the winter, there is cable under there that controls the blades from going. You can follow the cable down to the blades it usually is under the hood. When you are on the bottom have someone control the lever and see if it tightens and loosens the belt (do not have the mower running!). A axel should move to tighten the belt to turn the blades and when you pull the lever to stop the blades the axel should move to loosen the belt. Hope this helps. Oh from there the cable could be snapped, which is a 35 to 65 dollar part. Also could be the axel itself has something faulty where it doesn't move.

Have you checked the battery terminal connections? Is the battery charged fully? Are you sitting on the seat when you try to crank the mower? Could be any of the above but most likely battery connection or the battery is discharged or old.

Blade engagement lever won't disengage


If this is a manual engagment system all the lever does is to pull a jockey wheel into the back of the belt to tention it thus starting the blades to turn, so either the cable is jammed that pulls the jockey wheel in, or the jockey wheel arm is seized and needs freeing off to allow the jockey to to move to the relaxed position.

The only thing I can suggest to get you in the ballpark of what is wrong or if you can replace what you need replaced is to look on the Poulan website and get a customer service phone number. Chances are they will know exactly what you need. Hardware stores are too broad and it sounds like you need specilized attention.

Craftsman riding mower blades won't disengage


This is too late, but for the next person: There is an extension spring around the cable attached to the blade engage/disengage lever.

On my tractor one end of the spring had the hook broken off or it. Because it is around the cable it is still in place but doesn't stretch when you engage the blade (so can't pull the pulley out and slacken the belt when you disengage).

The replacement is a few dollars and can be bought on ebay or Amazon.
