twords the rear of the deck there are two bars with pins that hold the deck.they should have 3 or 4 holes where you can adjust the rear of the deck.check to see if there set to the middle somewhere,if so you can disconnect the 2 pins and try going up 1 hole iif that didn't work try down 1 from original point.

Hi this sounds like there is a spot of dirt in tne fuel system
you will need to dismantle the carburettor which is quite straight forward (be careful not to lose any screws or gaskets
guive the carburettor a good rinse in neat petrol/gasoline and blow out any debris that may be there.
re assemble the carburettor and prime with fuel and you should then be ok.
One other thought if you have found that the motor runs fine without being on the grass (eg it doesn't cut out after a minute or two) then it could be that you have the cutting blades set too low for your first cut. To raise the blade adjust the height of the wheels. Always start cutting with a high setting especially if the lawn hasn't been cut for a while.
hope this helps

I would expect to find two belts on a riding mower; one to drive the riding lawn mower (lets call this the DRIVER) and one to drive the actual mower part (lets call this the MOWER).
To answer your question one way, if the driver belt is off, it will still cut grass, but you cant move the mower. If the mower belt is off, it will move but not cut the grass.
If your belt is broken, take it to an automotive parts store or garden equipment place for replacement. You might also support a FixYa.com advertiser.
I hope this answers your question. Thanks for posting at FixYa.com and please vote.

Testimonial: "Thank You So Much For The info on lawn mower belts Now I know the guy I hired was not cutting the grass at all...Just had some fun riding around"
Try these steps:
There are usually two belts; one for the deck and the other is called the drive belt. It sounds like the drive belt failed.
Both the drive belt and the deck belt run off the engine by way of a double pulley on the end of the engine shaft. I'm hoping that you're nodding your head right now. That takes care of pulley #1 for the drive belt.
The second pulley is the idler pulley. Its job is to ensure that proper tension is maintained on the drive belt so it does not slip. If your tractor has a manually controlled release, the idler pulley will pivot when the clutch/brake pedal is depressed and the tension will decrease to a level that allows the tractor to sit still. If your tractor has an electronic clutch, the idler pulley will not move when the pedal is depressed and serves only to maintain proper belt tension.
The third pulley is usually on top of the rear axle and supplies power (torque and speed) to the input shaft of the gearbox. If you have a hydrostatic transmission, the rear pulley drives a pump. What's the difference? A hydrostatic transmission doesn't have a gearshift. It only goes forward or reverse depending on how the pedal is depressed.
If you have the mechanical (idler) style, make sure that the clutch Paddy is depressed fully and locked before attempting to replace the belt. Loosen any belt retaining devices (bars or covers) and slide the new belt on.
I haven't had to replace the belt on my hydrostatic tractor (with electronic clutch) yet, but I'm sure that it has an idler pulley too. Most belt-driven systems do. Good luck!
