That model number des not show up as a good number on the http://www.searspartsdirect.com site. Are you sure you have the belts on correctly? If it has 2 belts on the deck & 1 is not installed correctly they work against each other. Safely make sure that each blade will turn by hand. did you take the blades off? If they are too long by just a fraction, they will hit ach other, but that usually makes quiet a noise. Get your book out & systematically go over everything you touched or changed. It sounds like something really simple you have overlooked. you can go to http://www.searspartsdirect.com & enter a good model number & view all of the parts diagrams. Sometimes they are a big help, & at other times they just confuse you more:). Let me know what you find!!

Cutter deck height


Not sure what your question means. Cutter deck height is the setting you put your deck on that determines how short you cut your grass. Start out on a medium setting and see if you like the results. Sometimes the grass comes out uneven. If this happens, check your tire pressure on all tires.

Hope this helps! :)

Ride on mower can ride around but whe engage fanbelt for cutter motor stall no power but very thing does turn easy with hand


Sounds like your mower deck safety switch is bad..it is located near the end of the handle that engages the mower deck..try unhooking it and bypassing it with a wire or heavy paper clip...then try mowing if it mows that is your problem..the mower deck will,operate that way but is a safety switch..you need to get it replace,,easy to do yourself..good luck.

Toro 50" time cutter when engaging blade loud


I would remove the deck and belt, then spin each blade to isolate the loud noise. Also, make sure the blades are not bent hitting the deck. I always balance my blades after sharpening as well. By isolating the bearings spinning them one at a time, this will tell you where your problem lies. Hope this helps!

The play, rewind switches won't stay down


I have advised people before that replacing belts is not the only answer and sometimes people that are not experienced can upset some part of the deck without knowing it. We don't yet know the model or brand of the unit and from the description this kind of points to a Piano key or lever key type deck. I could also be a cam system deck. This complaint of buttons not staying down would not apply to a tack switch or solenoid type transport.
Like Jerry says a visit to a good Tech is the answer. I have been doing tape decks for 40 years and have worked at Sony and Teac service shops. If you need my help let me know. I am near Chicago.

Stalls when engaging cutter blades


The shaft that holds the blade could be rapped with something or needs a new bearing. Check again next to the deck, try a little WD 40 on the bearing.
