The jackshaft is damaged and the keyway snapped, causing the shaft to turn but not the blade. If you have a model number or serial number you can use it to veiw a parts breakdown on the sears website. Please rate this solution for me when you get a chance.

By hitting a rock the ARBOR's shaft that holds the blade on may have a sheared pin that mounts to the blade to keep it locked in place

Why does a craftsman 42in lawn tractor leave a uncut streak in middle


Hi there,

Is the uncut portion roughly 10-12" wide? Burning rubber smell? Screaching?

Chances are the middle blade isn't spinning.

Shut everything down. Key out.

Check for obstructions. Above and below. Blade and pulley.

If none, you're going to need to break it free. A piece of large bore PVC can be fit over the blade for leverage and safety.

Clear and grass or debris from the pulley shaft. You know, all the normal stuff.

Then try it again

Best regards

Turn off mower blades the electric clutch spins and the two green


There should be a metal "anchor" that bolts to the chassis or engine. It has a rod that sticks downward, fitting into a notch in the clutch to keep it from turning. It must be missing or broken, or maybe the clutch is the wrong model, and that's why the clutch itself spins and rips out the wires. Good luck! Please rate if you found this helpful, thanks!

Blades turn when not ingaged to turn


This will be due to belt drag. There is a blade brake fitted that is supposed to push brake pads onto the pulleys when the blade clutch is 'out'. If either the pads are worn, or the spring is missing/broken/dosconnected, that will be the problem.
