Question about Garden
Mower keeps throwing deck belt off. I have replaced the belt and made sure that it was put on correctly. I have had this problem since we bought the mower in 2011. Always placed the blame on a stick throwing it off but have never actually seen a stick in the area to prove me right. As of lately, (with a brand new belt) it throws it off as soon as the PTO is turned on. Please help, this is getting really irritating, and yard is beginning to look like a snake pit :(

Make sure i
the pulley is on streight, and not crooked. Check the pulley pin to make sure its not slipping. If its an Craftsman, take it back and get a new one. All their stuff is lifetime.

It sounds a lot like the balancer is loose. You can most likely fix this yourself, here's how: pull the spark plug wire off the plug, tilt the lawnmower up to expose the blade, rock the blade to see if it is loose on the shaft, if it is all you have to do is tighten the bolt so the blade and the balancer are flush to the shaft. That should fix your noise and uneven cut problem. If that doesn't fix it, let me know here, ok? Cheers!

Check for a bent shaft on the pully, or play in the shaft due to worn bearings on the shaft, The belt coming off is due to a misalignment of the pully with the belt.
