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.

Its not mowing evenly


You need to level the deck. On most mowers you level the deck from side to side evenly but have the front of the deck 1/4" lower than the back.

How to adjust height on tractor mower model no. 917.270812? I turn the adjustment knob and it will lock in only on the highest and lowest heights and nowhere in between.


You need to turn that knob to its highest point with the deck height lever to its highest setting. Now turn that knob counter clockwise a few turns and let the deck lever all the way down. That knob will stop the lever part way down. If it mowes to high rase that deck lever again and turn that knob counter clockwise some more and let that deck lever down again. Repete till you have the correct cutting height. If you were cutting to low turn the knob clockwise insted of counter clockwise in the instruction above. The knob only set the stop of the deck lever. Once set the deck lever lifts the deck up and holds it but when you let that lever down it returns to its mowing set height.

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.

Craftsman riding mower LT3000 blades won't engage/turn


Well, we wouldn't want to lose your little girl, but goats can be very lovable.

The problem could be it just needs lubricating. I'd first spray WD-40 on every part of that mecanism which moves, top to bottom, even inside the button on top and underneath the deck.

If that doesn't work, get back to me, please.
