John deere mower won't engage

I changed the mower belt and now I can only start with the deck lowered. If I try to raise the deck or engage the mower while the engine is running, I get a terrible sound. I hope you can help.

    I'll check the bearings. It ran fine until I changed the belt. Would it make a difference if the belt was 42 1/3 inches instead of 42 in?

On the engine there is a shaft with 2 pullys ,drive belt goes to the top closet to the engine lower pully is for the deck
there also is a saftey switch located on the deck which should shut down blade operation when raised. check the mandrels for broken bearings by grabbing the pully and wiggle them back and forth looking for movement could be possible that one madrel is shot giving you that bad sound which is crushed bearings

My john Deere sx95 blades not engaging plz help


When the blades on my John Deere fail to engage, I climb off the seat and look to see if the belt is still on. Belts get thrown, especially if you have too much grass on top of your deck. They also get stretched too much. I took a permanent marker and drew a picture of the direction of the belt around all of the pulleys. (Most mowers have this somewhere like on the deck or under the hood but I did my own).

John deere 855-70 manual


On ALL Deere riding lawn mowers, 1st, position the deck under the tractor. Depending on the belt drive: either PTO (the yellow button on the dash panel), or tension engaged-(a lever on the right side of the operator\'s seat), you loop the drive belt from the front of the deck to the pulley, always in the lower front area of the tractor\'s engine. If it has "beltguards" too close to the pulley, you must loosen the retaining bolt for the guard, it will allow the belt to squeeze by and onto the pulley. Then, 2nd but don\'t forget to retighten after slipping the belt on, push the "Deck heighth" lever fwd to drop the deck "hangars" at the rear of the deck into position to "pin" the eyelets with the supplied pins, washers and keepers: usually a cotter pin or a lynchpin that inserts thru a hole on the smooth bolt-pin. The easy part\'s over, but don\'t panic. 3rd, lift the front of the deck onto a block, allowing a heighth to apply the "adjusting rod" into the front of the mower chassis. Screw the retaining nut onto the threaded (long bolt) and remove the block. You\'re done. Next, and very important, RAISE & LOWER the deck, engage the belt tension, (here you may have to clear the area and start the engine to engage the PTO drive, if it\'s electronically controlled belt-drive), this assures nothing is "misaligned" or improperly positioned. Now, if the machine is on a flat surface, lower the deck to a point just above the ground and measure the distance in four (4) corners of the deck and record the ht. Make the adjustments to LEVEL the deck. Now you\'re ready to start the engine from the operator\'s seat, slightly increase the engine from idle to 1/4 throttle speed so that engaging the drive belt won\'t kill the engine. Ensure the belts run smoothly, the blades turn, and the engine doesn\'t "bog". Lower the deck to a desired cutting ht., now MOW the grass!

John deere 111 mower deck. Lift is in stuck in highest position


Looked up detailed isometric diagram w/ parts denoted on John Deere website. FixYa website was a litele misleading. I did not realize that accessing a question posted "for free" would cost me something to get the answer. It's kind of like askin a neighbor as a neighbor to give you a hand and then he sends a bill.
Thanks but no thanks
