SOURCE: Craftsman zero turn - blades won't engage

The PTO switch contacts to operate the clutch that starts the blades is defective. I have replaced mine and the new one just failed again. Sears must know this is a defect problem but so far they are quiet about the problem

SOURCE: I have a troy bilt riding mower blades will not engage in the 1 or 2 deck setting

There is a spring attached to a tensioner that probably came unhooked while changing the belt. Higher deck settings push the deck backwards enough to spin the blades, the lower setting need the spring tensioner to take up the slack in the belt.

How to fix my craftsman riding mower, whcih dies after engaging blade


make sure blades not jammed. with mower off, try turning blades by hand.
it could either be a safety switch in the seat or for the reverse paddle.
make sure its not in reverse when you attempt to engage blades.
you should be able to bypass both switches with a jumper wire for testing purposes. if it works with jumper, replace the switch(s).

Tractor shuts off when clutch is engaged craftman 22 hp 50" mower


Hello,

I had the same problem. My problem was something was preventing the blades from spinning, so the 1st thing you can do is check to make sure your blades turn, and test this while the mower is off.

While it is a pain, you can also take the deck out and check to see if this help and you are able to freely turn the blades. If everything is working properly, you should be able to turn the blades by hand.

In my case, I has a stick jammed into the belts and pulley, so when I would engage the blade, it would cause my mower to stall when it tried to engage the belt.

Hope this helps.

Dave

Engage blades makes noises


Sounds like the bearings are going out in one or both of your blade spindles. With the belt off,(and engine, of course) engage the lever on the dash. That will release the blade brake so the blades will be free to turn. Spin each one by hand. It will be easy to tell if the bearings are bad.
