Sounds like your starter is over heating.
1) make sure that there is adequite air flow to the starter and surrounding engine components from the fly wheel.
*in other words no grass or foreign debris obstructing the engine air flow.
2) make sure the batter terminals are good and tight.
3)make sure the starter cyliniod isnt bad.
*and also the wire's to the cyliniod are good tight.

Craftsman Model Number: 917.377151 motor shuts down when blades engaged


The engaging of the mowdeck is cause an excessive demand of your engine. From that, we can assume your problem is in the deck. Since the power drive is all about belts and it threw the belts, from your information I can only deduce that either an object (stick-wood-rock) has wedge into a position that has stopped rotation of the blades. Also, each blade has a pulley/spindle. These have bearings which must be free to rotate.
A bearing failure or seizing can also cause the problem you report.

Follow safety rules in your manual to insure the engine cannot start. Attempt to rotate each blade to check for free rotation. If the do not you most likely will need to remove the mower deck and check further. An obstruction or seized spindle should be easy to determine and sit repair is easily possible.

Craftsman zero turn - blades won't engage


The PTO switch contacts to operate the clutch that starts the blades is defective. I have replaced mine and the new one just failed again. Sears must know this is a defect problem but so far they are quiet about the problem

Craftsman 19.5 riding mower starts runs quits no power


When you let it sit did you remove all the fuel or add a additive? If you did not then I would recommend that you remove all the fuel and add brand new fuel to your system. Gasoline only last for about 3 to 4 months before it will start to go bad and this sounds like your problem

Craftsman riding mower LT3000 blades won't engage/turn


Well, we wouldn't want to lose your little girl, but goats can be very lovable.

The problem could be it just needs lubricating. I'd first spray WD-40 on every part of that mecanism which moves, top to bottom, even inside the button on top and underneath the deck.

If that doesn't work, get back to me, please.
