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.

Blades won,t disengage


Assuming this is a lever actuated deck (not electric p.t.o style) I would be checking the belt pivot tensioner assembly which the cable would be hooking to a lot of times moisture will get between the pivot and the deck and rust up not allowing the heavy return spring to slide the pivot back removing the tension from the belt. If you spray the pivot with a good lubricant and hand work the pivot tensioner back and forth it should loosen up. Usually it's the other way around and the 1st time of the year you use it you can't get it to engage.

Blade engagement lever won't disengage


If this is a manual engagment system all the lever does is to pull a jockey wheel into the back of the belt to tention it thus starting the blades to turn, so either the cable is jammed that pulls the jockey wheel in, or the jockey wheel arm is seized and needs freeing off to allow the jockey to to move to the relaxed position.

I bought a new belt for my2005 lt 1000 42" deck


for a deck no.. Most everything on the deck is done by springs.. what i would do is look at the deck make sure nothing is rubbing the belt making it rip apart.. or make it to not engage.. i would with the engine off engage the blade and disengage the blade make sure all the brakes are pulling away from the pulleys and making sure all the arms are moving to tighten the belt.. if nothing is moving then i double check the cable or however engages the deck (all mowers are different) and if need the part. If the cable is not broken and is still on deck make sure all springs are lubed. If you have any questions please dont hesitate to ask

as far as i know, there is no diagram available for the cable replacement. it is covered briefly in the owner's manual, but the best way to do it is to study carefully how the old one is routed, and replace a step at a time

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.
