This is usually caused by a stretched belt or a broken or disconnected bracket causing the deck to go out of alignment. Also check to insure your belt guides are in place (usually close to the pulley on the deck) they assist in keeping the belt in the groove, there should be two, close to the pulley.

The drive belt keep coming off. New mower had another one the same problem took it back and exchanged it for this one 42in mustang


If your drive belt comes off, it's usually a sign of either the belt isn't right, too long... OR the belt guides are either missing or installed incorrectly. There should be guides next to each pulley which keeps the belt close so that when the blades are disengaged and loose, they won't flip off once activated

2002 Pontiac Bonneville supercharger. Why does one of the belts keep coming off?


Check all the pulleys on that belt. One is bad. Oil doesn't help, but shouldn't be the problem of the belt coming off.

Why does cub cadet lt 1024 drive belt keep coming off belt


Once the drive belt comes off once - it's probably stretched and twisted and won't stay on. You'll need a new belt - be sure to get one that's Kevlar so you won't be replacing as often.

A belt keeps slipping off and the power steering no longer works.


Check to see that no bolts or mounting brackets are loose causing the power steering pump to be out of alignment with the rest of the pulleys. When replacing the belt make sure it is seated correctly on the pulley because if it is one ridge off it will cause the belt to shred very quickly.
