belts usually come off for a few reasons.
They become loose...stretch or the tensioner moves, Make sure that none of the tightening bolds are slipping. You can dab them with a bit of paint.
when the pulleys are not in alignment or crooked or bent. Eyeball the path from one pulley to another, also make sure the tensioner is in alignment and there are no other obstructions.
good, high quality belts are required, and they must be real drive belts...not regular v belts. If there is a way to watch the belt in operation you can usually see what's going wrong.
On my lawnmower I had to grind some metal away where the belt went from the motor to the transmission. Good luck

You turn the mower over, remove the blade with a 9/16 or 5/8 socket. There is a bolt holding shroud on, 3/8 or 7/16, there are two screws by the rear wheels, 7/16 that need to be removed. Once the shroud is removed, belt can be removed and new one put on.

If you didn't by the Troybilt belt, try that. I had the same problem with a Napa belt. Going into drive as soon as I grabbed the operator presence button, not coming out of gear etc. When I switched the the Troybilt belt, the problem went away.
