Blades won't engage. I hit something, blades quit turning, check belt, its okay. When you hit button to engage blades, you hear click

When you look under the mower do you see two belts ? Top one goes to the rear axle and lower one goes to mower deck spindle.
Your description sounds like the electric clutch is engaging,so if you are seeing two belts coming off the bottom of the engine maybe the belt bounced off a idler pulley on the deck and is not tight enough.

How to replace belt on self propelled lawn mower

There is probably a cover on the front part of the mower that goes to the front wheels. remove the cover and you should have access to the belt. Carefully remove the belt (don't pinch your fingers) push it back towards the motor. You might have to remove the blade. Place new belt in the pulley on the engine shaft then to the pulley up front. Carefully start the belt on the front pulley and slowly turn it onto the pulley.

Blade belt diagram for John Deere LX178 Riding

Remember the belt rule, V of the belt goes in V pulleys.Flat pulleys that are stationary or move get the back of the belt. You can figure it out. Its not rocket science. Remember at some point there has to be a tensioner,usually gets the back of the belt if its a flat pulley. U may have to remove the spring and then reattach the spring after the belt is routed.

Need instructions how to install belt on self propelled craftsman push mower

raise the front of your mower up and support it with something safe like a jack stand
take the blade off
when your blade is off locate the plastic cover covering the belt and remove
now remove the belt but first remove the plastic cover on top of the mower to uncover the gearbox that turns the wheels your belt goes from the engine pulley to the gearbox pulley
you will have to work the belt off the pulley while turning the motor by hand or the same when installing the belt.
to install belt reverse the procedure.

Poulan mower throwing the belt.

1) Remove the cover on the top of the belt and
remove the belt from the transmission pulley

2) Lean the mower back on its handle and secure it
with whatever you have that will keep it there while
you work on it, any heavy object will do

3) Remove the blade bolt, the blade, the blade
adapter and the plastic belt guard from the bottom
You should now be able to remove the belt

4) While you have the belt off, closely inspect the
pulley on the engine shaft, they sometimes get
grass built up in the groove and this will cause
the belt to run off and also wear prematurely.

Hope this helps you out
