You might have to replace the blades. They could have been damaged.

I engaged the blades while the mower deck was in the up position. Heard something didn't sound right disengaged blades lowered deck now blade won't engage at all . Help !!!??


you need to look around and find out what the problem is. is the belt on the pulleys or has it came off? can you turn each blade under the deck by hand or is a bearing seized up? is there a chunk of wood or a rock or wire caught in the spindles? do you have manual or electric clutch to engage the blades? has the fuse blown or has the cable broke. look around there is something that wont look right and that is more than likely your problem

How do I determine why the blades will not engage on my mower


With the mower turned off and the deck at its lowest setting, check the top of the deck for any debris like rocks or sticks. Then watch the top of the deck while you move the engage lever. If nothing is moving, you either need to adjust the cable, reattach the cable, or install a new cable. If you see the lever with the pulley on it moving, when the engage lever is locked on, check the tightness of the belt. If it's loose, that is your problem and it could be a stretched belt.

Where is the safety switch to engage the blade


Your lawn tractor will have a lever that raises and lowers the mower deck which houses the two cutting blades. By lowering your mower deck to the desired cutting height, the blades should automatically engage. By raising the deck back to it's highest position, the blades will automatically disengage. Should be simple enough. You can consult your mower manual. If you don't have one, you can easily find it online using the make, model and year of the lawn tractor.

2000 craftman lawn tractor 917.270822 blades will not engage


If your blades won't engage when you raise the lever to engage them AND that lever moves freely without the normally expected resistance, then you've lost the cotter pin that connects the lever rod to the mower deck assembly. Very easy fix! Using the mower deck raise/lower lever, lower the mower deck to "down" position. Now, lay on your side along the right side of the mower and look up (use a flashlight) under the mower at the top of the mower deck while moving the blade engagement lever "up" (which pushes the connected rod down). At the end of the rod, you will see a hole where the mower deck and rod connect. Align the hole at the end of the rod with the matching "pin" on the mower deck (you'll see it) and insert a new cotter pin to secure them together. Use a nail if you don't have a cotter pin. Voila! you are done. The blade engagement lever will now engage/disengage your mower blades successfully. Just remember that mower deck must be down, or lowered, before you engage the blades!

How do I change blades on Poulan riding mower


The trick is to block the blade so you can loosen the bolt in the middle of the blade. I use a chunk of wood several inches long and I place it in such a way that the blade will dig into the end of the block and the block doesn't move. The bolt size on mine is 9/16". You will likely need a breaker bar or a large ratchet, as it can be quite tough to remove.

You can also use a c-clamp to clamp a smaller block of wood to the inside of the deck for the blade to bite into.

JD Model LX178, 1996 Model year. Engine runs but mower deck will not engage? (worked ok yesterday)


It could be a few things:

1. Check the belt that drives the blades; it could be broken or slipping.
2. Make sure the PTO Switch/Lever is working properly. The cable could be broken, or the spring that sometimes help to engage the blade could be broken.
3. There may also be a large stick lodged in the belt that drives the blades.

Good Luck!

Engaging the blades / PTO


There is either a yellow toggle switch or a yellow knob type switch on the dash panel that will engage your deck unless some of the safety switches are stopping it from working due to an adjustment problem or a defective switch,let me know if you need more help.

Smoking Craftsman Riding Mower


1st thing, check your dipstick up inside the cap part of it and make sure the O'ring is there and in good condition.
2nd, make certain when you put it back on that you get it on straight and firmly seated. They will only seat one way properly the other way creates a leak into the crankcase and causes oil consumption and smoking. You should be able to tell if it has been improperly installed by an excessive amount of oily dirt accumulated around the threaded area of the cap
