Sounds like the shear bolt is broken, Do you have and owners manual to show you the location of shear bolt? They are easily replaced.

SOURCE: I have a 15.5 HP Sears Craftsman 42

I'm betting that you need a new safety kill switch - probably the one underneath the seat (the spring-loaded plunger switch that won't let you use the machine without your *** in the seat). Could also be the one behind the "dash" that is associated with the blade engagement mechanism.

I know that the under-seat-switch cannot be bypassed or it will disable the machine in the exact way that you described. Why do I say this? Because I just tried to bypass my own "***-in-the-seat-safety-switch" on my very own 15.5 HP, 42" Sears tractor, and it responded by punishing me - the absense of the switch caused the motor to cut out when I tried to put the machine in gear AND/OR engage the blade. It seems to have some measured capacitance - the absense of same seeming to interrupt the ignition timing enough to shut the motor down when you attempt to get anywhere past neutral or engage the blade. These "safety" switches may be needed by a very few who prefer to be drunk while they mow lawns on steep slopes that their tractor mowers were not designed for, but I find these items to be troublesome and enfuriating. My trees shed a lot of sticks in high winds, and I can't stand shutting the machine down and restarting it EVERY SINGLE TIME I have to dismount to clear sticks or other obstructions out of my mowing path. This is an obnoxious, "nanny-design" feature that desparately needs to be discontinued. It also makes both jump-starting the tractor and electrical troubleshooting much more difficult than they should be. The tractor should let you dismount without shutting down, as long as you have disengaged the blade and shifted into neutral. It should also let you jump start with jumper cables - impossible to do with your rear end in the seat. By the way, call Manufacturer's Supply, Inc. at 1-800-826-8563. They may have a replacement - their item number 31-9664 might do it, but talk to them first. I'm calling them tomorrow. Good luck.

Blades won't engage on my zero turn 50" cut husqvarna (approx2011) I found a 7" spring on the ground and don't know where it goes back on. Can u help


Looking underneath the mower on top of the deck there should be a flat metal arm with a flat faced pulley on the end. This pulley pushes against the belt that drives the mower deck . The spring should be hooked on that arm and pulled tight over to a place on the deck and this is what keeps the belt tight enough to turn the blades when you engage the pto switch. My recommendations to put this back on is to remove the belt pulley cover on the deck right side roll the belt off at that pulley giving you a bunch of slack so you can hook up the spring and put the belt in the right position on everything else then go back to the deck right hand pulley start putting the belt back on that pulley and when it is to tight to get it all the way on reach under the deck and use the blade as leverage to finish turning the pulley and walk that belt on the rest of the way ,it will not hurt a thing, all you are doing is pulling that 7 inch spring over like it was intended to be, then replace the cover on the deck spindle.

Blades will not engage


when you actuate the "engage blade" lever, two things may occur,
First, a mechanical action, a spring moves to put tension onto the belt.
Second; at the end of its run, actuate a switch (PTF switch) to engage the clutch that moves the pulleys that consequentially move the blades.
if the tensioner is not moving , check if spring has come lose, undone or broken, (more likely in your case) or check the PTF switch.
any other assistance, contact me, good luck.

Clutch spring


I am guessing that this is a problem that has just appeared. In which case it sounds like the spring may be worn out. The linkage itself may be worn out also. Check to be sure that nothing is loose, nuts, bolts, you get the idea.

Blades not disengaging


is the blade engagement system a lever or a switch?
If a lever , then look on the deck where the pulley applies tension to the drive belt for a sticking point. the cable from the lever will be attached to it and it should move smoothly in and out of drive position. sounds like the pulley is not retracting when cable is released. check for sticking of pulley arm or maybe a missing return to idle/off spring is broken or missing.
The deck should disengage as soon as the tension on the cable is removed.

if electric, the clutch itself is always getting power, so a swithc circuit fault is to be expected.

Bracket clutch anti-rotation


Without the anti-rotation arm installed when you engaged the PTO the clutch spun and probably ripped out the wires connecting it to the harness. This can be repaired but is tricky. If you have a Husqvarna dealer close by, it will save you several hours of labor to have them correct the problem.

When I engage the blades nothing happens. Any ideas?


I have a YTH 150 with a similar problem. The mower has an electrically powered clutch which is activated when you engage the blade button. If the drive belt has no tension on it, engaging the clutch doesn't do anything because the drive wheel will just spin but the blades won't. Look for broken tension springs on the mower deck and replace.

This is the owners manual if you do not have one.
There is a brake on the pulley, make sure that is not hanging up.
Please let me know what you find.

Mower blades will not engage when clutch switch is pulled out. This is a new unit (2348) and the first usage. It worked fine for a couple of passes and then stopped engaging??? Thanks


1. Check to see if the belt has come off or has a
lot of slack in it. It should be nearly as tight as
a fan belt on your car. If it has a lot of slack,
look for a release lever that has come unhooked
or a pulley that has come loose
2. With the engine off, ignition switch on, engage the
blade switch and listen for a clicking sound
If NO sound, look for a blown fuse or broken or
disconnected wires leading from the clutch to
the frame wiring harness
3. Look in the back of your Owner's Manual for
troubleshooting tips or if all the above conditions
appear normal, call your dealer. If you do much
more than routine maintenance, it could void
your entire warrantty

Craftsman riding mower blades won't disengage


This is too late, but for the next person: There is an extension spring around the cable attached to the blade engage/disengage lever.

On my tractor one end of the spring had the hook broken off or it. Because it is around the cable it is still in place but doesn't stretch when you engage the blade (so can't pull the pulley out and slacken the belt when you disengage).

The replacement is a few dollars and can be bought on ebay or Amazon.

My husky is an automatic and it does not shift into drive anymore


You may have broken a clutch spring. Husky automatics use 3 springs for each of the 3 gears. Each spring controls a clutch shoe. A broken spring would prevent you from engaging a gear and causes other mischief inside the case. You should remove the left case cover and inspect. Halls Husqvarna has parts catalogs for almost every year. Thumpertalk.com has a discussion thread on this problem.
