Check that you have routed the belt correctly. Did you happen to go to the outside of the idler? Also is the belt the correct size requiring the idler to put tension on the belt to drive it Belt should be loose when idler is disengaged.. See sketch:

Deck belt engages but wont stay on


Make sure the belt keepers around the blade spindle pulleys are in place they are designed to keep the belts from coming off the pulley adjust to about 1/8-1/4 inches from the pulley...also make sure the belt tensioner is tight on the drive belt when engaged if it isn't your belts probably need renewed..good luck...

What will cause blades on J.Deere G100 mower to Freely turn by hand without causing Spindles or belt to turn even though Bolts are still tight and when installed Blade turned only if spindle turned


Do Ray:
If the blade engagement lever is in the disengaged position, the belt will be loose, allowing you to turn the blades by hand. If you place the blade engagement lever in the engaged position (with the motor off) it will be hard to turn the blades because of the tension on the belt. If the blades are still easy to turn with the blade engagement lever in the engaged position, you need to replace the blade drive belt!

Blades to disengage


On mower deck there is a pulley that engages the belt to turn blades. Find it, While tractor is shut off check that spring is on the bracket that moves pulley back when disengaged.If gone replace it. If its there, slide bracket back and forth to find out what it is catching on.

Blades will not engage


when you actuate the "engage blade" lever, two things may occur,
First, a mechanical action, a spring moves to put tension onto the belt.
Second; at the end of its run, actuate a switch (PTF switch) to engage the clutch that moves the pulleys that consequentially move the blades.
if the tensioner is not moving , check if spring has come lose, undone or broken, (more likely in your case) or check the PTF switch.
any other assistance, contact me, good luck.

Craftsman LT2000 Blade is staying engaged all the time, just did a blade mandrel replacement, where does the spring for the blade control reattach? What would make the blades be in motion all the time?...


sounds like you may not have the right mandrels making the belt to tight and it cant be left loose enough to allow the blades to quit turning.Otherwise you didnt put the belt back on correctly if it is around the tightener pully the wrong way that to will make the belt to tight
