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).

Need a troubleshooting manual for a craftsman mod. 917.287070


Went out to cut grass and the blades will not engage and when I put it in gear it does not move. Belts are intact. I cleaned the deck of dirt and grass. Still nothing. Just replaced the cable to engage the blades last year. Cable seems to be working.

Two springs broke underneath the riding lawn mower 3800 and we don't know where to replace them at, they engage the gears.


First make sure you can still engage the blades.Many mowers use a cable attached to a spring to engage the blades.If that is one of the springs,you need a new cable.For the other I will need more information,like what kind of mower is it?How many blades?Another thing to look for is worn or torn holes that the springs attach to.

I have a 18.5 hp 42" electric start craftsman mower. when i went to engage the blades the lever was harder to move than usual and once it was engaged nothing happened. blades not turning! please help.


When you move the lever and engage the blades you are also engaging the belt that drives the blades and sits on top of the mowing deck. Chances are that belt either came off one or more rollers, or broke. The only way to check it out is to get down and look on the top of the mowing deck. Get back and let me know what you find.
