You clutch is probably OK. This sounds like some binding in the mowing deck.

  1. Take off the deck.
  2. Clean the underside of the mowing deck.
  3. Remove the belt and be sure all the moving parts move freely. If something is bound, try to free it up with oil.
  4. Replace any bound up bearings. Bearing are a very high maintenance item on a mowing deck.
Good luck.

How to adjust a loose mower deck drive belt?


check your pulleys to make sure they haven't split as this does happen. Adjust the belt tensioner to tighten the belt when you engage the clutch to drive the mower. You should be able to see the belt tensioner by dropping the cutting deck to its lowest point and looking underneath the mower to see which pulley actually puts the tension on the belt to make it drive. there is no need to start the mower to find which pulley needs to be adjusted, it should be obvious when you look at the belt and the pulleys.
Hope this helps you

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.

The mower starts but the blade switch won't conect yth1542xp


Husqvarna uses an electronic clutch to engage the mower deck. When the clutch works itself out of adjustment it will quit working. Sometimes it will blow the 20 fuse and the tractor will continue to run, but the blade won't engage. When you then shut off the tractor it won't crank again until you replace the fuse. When you attempt to engage the blades again, the fuse will blow again.

Follow this link for a detailed description of the adjustment process:

I have a craftsman 19.5 and the blades will not engage what is the problem?


Hi there,

From the description provided any answer is pure conjecture.

If it produces smoke and a burned rubber smell, one or more of the blades is jammed (Could also be bearings on blade shaft)

The drive belt could be broken or loose or off

The clutch to engage blades
If manual may need adjusting
If electric, may be disconnected

Best regards

Blades wont engage


check the clutch if it engage then check the cable and belt to if it works make sure all the bolts are tight. usually the belts is too loose or if its a clutch drive maybe the clutch doesn't engage or worn out.

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 blades wont engage and just hear click sound?


No permanent solution, but you probably can get by once by "riding" the clutch engagement lever - pushing it only part way forward and holding onto it.
