When you say nothing happens...is the PTO engaging? You said that you already checked the belts...if none of these are off...you maybe looking at a new PTO clutch.www.nnyparts.com

It may have a safety lock on it causing you to not use the blades in reverse. My 07 craftsman has that safety feature.

Craftsman DYT 4000, 24 hp 48" deck. While I was mowing, the blades stopped turning, started again, and then stopped. I shut down, all looked OK, tried to start and nothing. No click, nothing. Any ideas?


there is a fuse in engine compartment that might have blown causing the engine or blades not to start but what probably happened was something got caught in the blades check under the deck & see if there is & also try spinning blades by hand & see what happens

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.

Slack in belt from motor to mower blades


There should be some so the blades are not constintly turning. If the attacment clutch is engaged and the blades do not turn, either the tentioner is frozen in place and not applying tention on the belt, the belt is routed wrong it is too large for the tractor.
