You should not have to. If the blades are not turning, either the tentioner is frozen and not able to apply tention to the belt or the belt is too large for the tentioner to be effective. Check the routing of the belt and make sure it is following the correct path.

SOURCE: craftsman 42 inch deck won't run

Check proper belt routing. These models are a little tricky. Also check tensioner spring.

SOURCE: need a diagram for a sears craftsman 42 inch deck drive belt and

I don't have a deck diagram but you should be able to figure it out it you put the back part of the belt (flat) up against the pulleys that are wide and the narrow part (v) into the smaller pulleys. It might take a couple of times but it is not that hard to figure out. Also put the (flat) side of the belt on any tension idlers. Hope this works.

SOURCE: I need to tighten belt for the mower deck, how is

Each of the pulleys on top of the deck should have tensioners. These tensioners are usually the type which have a bolt for you to tighten while attached to the pulley. While you tighten the bolt, the pulley puts tension on the belt.

There is an idler pulley that engages the mower deck and tightens the belt automatically on your model. Check to make sure the belt is routed correctly, return spring is in place and that your cable is operating smoothly.

I need a belt diagram for the mower deck on a Craftsman DGT 4000 mower w/ 48" deck... Can you help??


If you go to sears.com and click on parts. You will need to enter your model number-not dyt4000-but the model number on the machine's ID plate, probably with the serial number.

It will respond with your mower parts diagram!

Engine dies when i engage the blades on my craftsman 24hp 48" deck model dyt4000


There is a safety switch that is connected to the seat, so that if you get out of the seat with the blades running, it will shut the mower off. That switch may be bad, or disconnected. Look for a pair of wires running up under the bottom of the seat. As a short-term fix or a test, you could connect those two wires together.

How to replace deck belt on lt 1000 craftsman riding mower


there are several belt guards that you will need to loosen then the belt will slip right on. having someone hold the clutch will make it easier, and the belt diagram should be on the deck. If not, these are common mowers, so a search for this or a friends/neighbors mower may hold the answer. Be sure to re tighten all guards or your belt will pop off and wear out very fast against these metal parts
