Did you try to disengage the safety feature that should shut the tractor off when the blades are engaged and the tractor is placed in reverse? I believe that it is located under the shift leaver

I do not believe there is a manual available to the public for troubleshooting, however, you have at least 3 switches to tell the mower to stop when blades are engaged or clutch pedal released.
mower engage switch
The pedal and mower lever switches are identical, and have two sides, one for starting, one for blades turning. One side can fail. The pedal switch is on the frame very close to the pivot point of the pedal/shaft. The mower switch will be under the dash close to the bottom of the lever.
1) Locate and inspect the switches for broken or pinch wires, switch housing, or loose mounting, and how each lever or pedal engages the swtich.
2) This is a picture of the wiring so that you can get a better idea of location.

SOURCE: The mower blades don't properly
This can happen when the engaging mechanism on the mower deck can not move properly. This could be because there is debris on the deck that is causing interference. It can also happen if you have some corrosion on the deck that is resisting proper operation. So, clean the deck, this is best done by removing the deck. It usually is not very hard to remove, just remember what you pulled off and how it goes to put it back together. There may be half a dozen pins to pull and then move the cable or linkage, raise the mechanism and the deck should slide out pretty easy. Inspect and clean the deck. Then manually manipulate the tensioning pulley, this may take some force to do, depends on the one you have but you should be able to do it by hand. Lubricate if necessary. While the deck is out inspect the belt for wear and replace if necessary. Reassemble and test.
Please rate if this was helpful.

Check the belt its not tight, its loose or not fitted right.------
May be you put the belt loose or not properly.------
I agree belt is new, the belt is not the problem but its placement is problem.its coming out of its pulleys.Recheck that belt is intact and in-place and not getting loose.--------
Also recheck the connection of pto switch and seat switch.Remove the switch one by one and by pass it with a jumper wire and see if the blades getting engaged.-------
Also check the bolt that holds the idler arm to the deck ,that bolt gets worn out causing the the arm to move up and down. ---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
