Mine works,great,take bag off and it will mulch it and look like it's being bagged up.Is your grass knee high?Do you have it low enough?Here's your manual,read the part on grass catcher and see if your doing something wrong,make sure grass door is open.Check your blade to make sure they didn't put it on upside down.The cut part should be facing out. http://pdf.lowes.com/operatingguides/043033566280_oper.pdf
yes that is most likely the cause of it, also, you have to cut more often when mulching, and the higher the cutting deck, the more likely the grass will blow out without getting mulched enough. More than likely, the blades are dull, and/or the grass is too high, or possibly even wet if it is high.
This model mulching deck uses a flat/ribbed serpentine belt that is set at very high tension.When belt breaks under the cover only one blade will turn due to IT being driven from PTO clutch as the other blade being turned from serpentine belt.This deck was Deere's first and last shot at making a true mulching deck and only made it a couple years.When you buy the VERY expensive belt it will come with detailed instructions on how to install it.Goog luck.
True Mulching mowers have a specific deck design to them, but I would say yes to your question.It's been quite a few years, but I have done this little conversion myself - replace regular blade with a mulching blade. Just make sure the mulch blade does fit your mower. Also, use something substantial in terms of strength to close the discharge opening. There can be a good deal of force placed at the opening from flying debris. You'll also want to make the cover removable, so you can mow damp grass without the cover.
Most lawn mower mfgs offer a mulching kit which usually consists of a metal plate to block the discharge opening and a mulching blade which just has a longer sharpenned cutting edge.
With a little labor you can make your own.
