Check proper belt routing. These models are a little tricky. Also check tensioner spring.

Have model 247.288811 and blades won't engage when the lever is moved forward. Lever feels like nothing is attached.


Most likely either your deck engagement cable is broken or has came the idler pulley.

How do I determine why the blades will not engage on my mower


With the mower turned off and the deck at its lowest setting, check the top of the deck for any debris like rocks or sticks. Then watch the top of the deck while you move the engage lever. If nothing is moving, you either need to adjust the cable, reattach the cable, or install a new cable. If you see the lever with the pulley on it moving, when the engage lever is locked on, check the tightness of the belt. If it's loose, that is your problem and it could be a stretched belt.

Your blades engage with a cable and the cable somewhere is bunched up. You will probably need a new cable.

A cable is loose that will not allow me to engage the blades, how do I reattach the cable. it is a craftsman Lt 1000 17 IC ohv . model # 917.272260 42 inch cut.


Tightening up a stretched cable is impossible. If the cable is NOT adjustable to shorten it and make it tighter, then you will need a new one. Here is a link to one. I searched all the parts diagrams in your manual for the cable and find it was NOT listed. I hope this helps as I have researched your problem. Go here:

Where do attach cable that engages blades


On a lot of Craftsman decks that are cable operated, the right side idler pulley is the tensioning pulley and at the top of the bolt that holds it in place is a hole for a retaining clip. With clip removed, slide the cable end over the post and install the clip. The cable will be kinda loose with the blades disengaged, but it will not come off. By the way make sure that the cable is routed through the holder towards the back of the deck and is properly secured.

Craftsman 42" mower deck won't disengage


Try pulling on the cable coming down to deck. This cable might be your problem. Also check that the spring on the end of this cable is present and functional.
