Belt is to long, is there a deck adjustment?


Jim, Double check to make sure you have correct belt for the deck and are installing it in the correct configuration as per manual or drawing on deck. Very few lawn tractors have deck belt adjustment, most do not, most deck belts have a spring loaded tensioner to take up the slack.
This could be some of your problem, the tensioner/idler pulley sometimes seize up and must be lubed up till they move freely, or your belt could be loose. Look in your manual or try google searching your make, model #, deck belt adjustment.

Why does my mower deck belt on john deere 316 keeps breaking


There are a few causes for this and its not just this brand or model. First check that belt is installed correctly, check the part that keeps the belt on the belt rollers the belt should be between the garde and belt wheel, check for shine spots where belt is rubbing, Some times the mower deck is not set even or too low it can put the belt at too much of an angel causing the top of roller to cut it. So check the deck level there are adjustment devices on the mower to adjust, check for shine spots and for correct belt installment, and check roller wheel top for cuts or sharp spots, and check belt tension to see if it is to tight or too lose, also check that rollers spin free and there is not one stuck that could be heating the belt up too much, And last but not least make sure you are using the proper belt that is made for a mower fan belts don't last very long on a mower.

Lt 1000 new deck belt is smoking, is there a break-in period for new belts?


First, you need to check to make sure you have the belt on correctly. There needs to be a tensioner holding the belt in proper tension. I have had a few deck issues where a bearing is worn out and it could be smoking when the grease gets hot. See if you can get a diagram for the belt position and check your bearings and idlers. Also make sure it is cleaned out so that you don't have a lot of grass in there that could be burning and smoking.Good luck.

Blades turn slower when deck is lowered on cub cadet 1042


Had the same problem after winter storage and couldn't find an answer anywhere. I noticed that the drive belt (not the ribbed deck belt) was loose when the deck was down below 4 and tight when it was up higher.
That told me either belt is stretched beyond the belt tensioner's or the tensioner wasn't working right. Found that the tensioner was hard to move and would stick. Greased the zerk on top of the large bolt, worked it back and forth a number of times by pulling on the belt. Problem fixed. But I'm thinking it may be time to order a new tensioner spring and belt anyway. Hope this helps someone down the road. If so pass it on. :) jerseyjimmers@yahoo.com

Troybuilt riding mower won't pickup grass


can you tell me if unit has timmed blades and is the unit a rear catching unit ?


be sure engine speed is correct most applications this between 3400-3600 rpm
if unit has timmed blades - be sure that the blades are timmed correctly , and the correct blade is on correct side

if not timmed be sure blades are sharp and balanced , make sure the wing turn up is ok ( blade speed and turn up creates air velocity)

make mandrell vents are clear if unit has them , make deck belt is not slipping, and is not damaged
make sure deck belt tension is correct

make sure pulley splines are ok and are fixed tightly to spindle shafts and keys are in place

make sure the catcher vents or bag are clear and air can flow through,

lastly be sure that the deck is set level side to side and the deck has between 5 - 10 mm rake that is the height of front of the deck is 5- 10 mm lower than the rear of the deck
and the deck lifts up evenly

note let me know model and spec number of ride on mower
will try and help further if this info does not help

I have a Craftsman 20 HP 42" Mower. I replaced an idler pulley and drive belt on the mower deck. I got the deck reattached to the mower but now the mower blades spin even when not engaged. How can I fix...


Did you obtain the correct replacement belt AND pulley. Double check your part numbers against the parts list for your machine. If you verify that they are correct, double check the belt routing, make sure it didn't get on the wrong side of a belt guide and is in the correct configuration. Look at your idler pulley and make sure the release spring is doing its job pulling it back from the applied position. Make sure that the arm for the pulley moves freely where it is bolted to the deck, it could be bound up with rust or debris. You should have a lot of slack in the belt when it is in the released position. If it does not then either it is the wrong part or improper installation
