You may have more then one problem here.
Your shop needs to disassemble the clutch and repair it. You may have a broken guide pin. They also need to check end clearance on all the bushings, idler pulley's etc.
Though I have seen clutches do this by themselves, other things can cause similar behavior. Without having the machine in front of me makes it 4 times harder to fix.

The blade on my snapper riding mower disengages but will engage by resetting. it then disengages again


My experience has been the clutch is bad. There is a "clearance gap" between the clutch pads so when it energizes a magnet is charged drawing the two together. When the clearance exceeds a certain amount, the clutch either will engage and almost immediately stop or not engage at all. Costly, too.

Why will my Snapper riding mower not go into gear?


If it is a hydro-stat transmission, the bypass lever will have to be re-engaged for it to work.

if they have been adjusting it for you this many times they have done it wrong and have ruined the clutch face plate material by letting it slip and sand off the facing material,now its down to the metal back plate and its now metal to metal,you need to have the clutch replaced soon or your going to ruin more drive components
