Question about Craftsman 42 in. Deck 19.5hp Lawn Tractor

1 Answer

Blades will not come on

You pull the knob and it sounds like they are running, but they are not. Belts look good and we cleaned around them.

Are any pulleys turning when you engage? Is you tensioning spring or arm either bent or not attached properly.

My Husqvarna LGT 2554 deck hung up on high spot mowing. Turned off deck & mower pushed by hand. Engaged deck,started to mow, wound to stop. Belts fine. Pull up on knob to engage, you get nothing.


The engine runs but the blades do not engage? Make sure the wire connecting the electric clutch is still plugged in. If all is connected and the belt is really fine, there is a problem with either the electric clutch or PTO switch.

Just what does an electric clutch do


The electric clutch on a lawn tractor or zero-turn mower turns on the mower deck. Instead of a lever that you pull to start the blades, you pull a red knob.

The advantage of an electric clutch is the belts stay tensioned all the time and the belts should last longer.

Some wire wound up around the blades on my riding tractor. I removed all the wire and now when I lower the blades, the mower will not engageshear pin


when the wire wound around the blades, did it move the drive belts? Check the belts on your cutting deck. If the belts are good and are still in the proper pulleys, then it could be the shear pin on the shaft coming from the engine.

Bladesdoturnwhenengaged


your belt has most likely jumped out of it's intended route, or has broken, check with engine NOT running keys out switch off, pull engage knob and try to manually move blades if they move while knob is engaged, belt is broken or off track

X520 jd mower trouble


Sounds like a problem with the governor. Start it up. Don't engage the blades. Drive to a hill. Idle all the way down. Try driving up the hill. The motor should pick up when it slows while pulling up the hill. If it doesn't, the governor isn't working right.

Craftsman 18.5 riding mower when I engage the blades to cut the blades turn But they do not engage NO Power.Blades Turn But Not enough to cutthe grass.


Hi Jeff, If you look at the deck, one or more of those pulleys is a tensioner, It pushes against the belt to tighten it, The rest of the pulleys can be identified by the fact that they only have a bolt through the middle, whereas the tensioner is mounted on an adjustable arm with a slot to allow adjustment. It should also be the only one that the belt doesn't go around the pully it just pushes on one side.If the tensioner arm is all the way to the end of the slot, the belt is streched and will need replaced but sounds like it may have come loose. Some of these decks also have a spring on the tensioner arm and those come off from a stick or other debris. Check it out and if you have a problem let me know and I will try to come up with a diagram. If your mower is that new there should be a belt diagram on the deck. i will need a model number of the deck or mower for that. Good luck!
