Is the blade engagement system a lever or a switch?
If a lever , then look on the deck where the pulley applies tension to the drive belt for a sticking point. the cable from the lever will be attached to it and it should move smoothly in and out of drive position. sounds like the pulley is not retracting when cable is released. check for sticking of pulley arm or maybe a missing return to idle/off spring is broken or missing.
The deck should disengage as soon as the tension on the cable is removed.

if electric, the clutch itself is always getting power, so a swithc circuit fault is to be expected.

I have a 42 inch troy-bilt riding mower the blades won't disengage.


Sounds like either the switch for the blades is not shutting off the power to the electric clutch or the clutch itself is not disengaging. I would shut the mower off and unplug the wire to the electric clutch and then start the mower and make sure the blades do not turn you may have the belt for the blades on the wrong pulley and it might be causing the blades to turn. Hope this helps.

Blades wont disengage completely


The lever has worn out....thus it is not locking up immediately when fully disengaged. You'll need to trace down the lever right down to the blade mechanism and then you'll notice a fork shaped part that shows signs of wear....very common on craftsman riding mowers.

I have a poulan pro PR1842STC; the blades won't stop turning after I disengage the mower belt


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.

I have a mountfield 1538h-sd blades disengaged while mowing belts seem very slack ,but the belts are all on the pulleys.


The belts may be loose.With the mower off,engage the blades and check the tension.Next would be to get under the mower and check for debris in and around the lever that engages the blades.Sometimes trash will get hung up in there and the blades will disengage.The next step would be to inspect the pulleys for debris and to make sure the spindles are not bent.While at the pulleys make sure there are no burrs or cacks in the pulleys,as that will cause the blades to disengage.

Cutting blades won't disengage


Check you blades to see if one is bent. Do this with the mower NOT RUNNING and the KEY OUT of THE IGNITION! Look under the deck to see if one is bent. This will cause the wobble. As far as no disengaging your electric clutch could be bad. The bearing could have seized up.

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.
