Craftsman Model Number: 917.377151 motor shuts down when blades engaged


The engaging of the mowdeck is cause an excessive demand of your engine. From that, we can assume your problem is in the deck. Since the power drive is all about belts and it threw the belts, from your information I can only deduce that either an object (stick-wood-rock) has wedge into a position that has stopped rotation of the blades. Also, each blade has a pulley/spindle. These have bearings which must be free to rotate.
A bearing failure or seizing can also cause the problem you report.

Follow safety rules in your manual to insure the engine cannot start. Attempt to rotate each blade to check for free rotation. If the do not you most likely will need to remove the mower deck and check further. An obstruction or seized spindle should be easy to determine and sit repair is easily possible.

Does model # 917.276021 have a mower lock out on the transmission


The PTO when engaged draws a lot of power from the battery. Check the battery for proper voltage. If your battery is low or say 1/2 charge, it will never engage the blades and will die every time you try to engage the blades.

Blade not cutting. How can I adjust? Craftsman model 358.796480


When the blades are engaged do they turn? It could be a belt is loose tha causes the blades not to spin. Check the handle that engages the mower deck to see if it goes into the proper slot which would cause the blades to spin.
