Hello. Often when the belt brakes it is because one of the pulleys has frozen up. The best way to work on the mowing deck is to remove it from the tractor so you can see what you are doing, check each pulley, thoroughly clean and grease it. Definitely replace any pulley that is either frozen up or wobbly. Then get a belt especially made for your brand of mower. I would have given you a link to a manual but you did not tell me the brand and model. Get back on here with that info and I will be watching for you. FOUR thumbs up will be truly appreciated. Thanks. Joe

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!

My poulan pro lawnmower blades are not cutting when running


Are your blades installed up side down?
Is the blade drive belt installed properly or are the blades turning backwards? Is the belt too loose and slipping?
Are the blades dull and need sharpening?.

The motor runs but the blade does not turn


UNPLUG the saw! IF your saw is a direct drive; either the blade is loose or the center of the blade is broken, Or the motor shaft has broke off. IF your saw is BELT DRIVEN, check the belt tension, or belt condition.

Our indestructible deck has made mowing impossible, it clogs all the time and then "coughs" like it's dying. We have to stop mowing and turn off the blades and turn them on again to shoot the...


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

Maybe I am missing the obvious but I have had a couple of people that had this problem with since new use of a mower. One of them had the wrong blades with the deck and the 2nd one the baldes were installed with the air foil side DOWN. If you have Air-flow problems under your deck the above is possible or your blade deck drive belt is routed incorrectly. The decal for the blade deck belt routing should still be on your deck. Look at the decal drawing vs the actual routing of the deck belt. It is highly possible that one or more of your blades is driving backward.
If you can not find your decal (would be hard not to find it on a deck not 1 year old!), I will try and look it up but I need the model number of mower and the DECK (2 ea model numbers 1 for mower 1 for deck)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Blades will not engage, belt not broke but is very old, do I need new one?


Check if the belt is loose. With the engine off, try to pull the mower deck belt around by hand. If you can pull it easily, and the blades don't turn, then replace the belt. If it's hard to pull, and you can see the blades try to turn as you pull it, then your problem probably isn't the belt, but the PTO clutch or mower engage switch.

How do I change out the primary belt on a Craftsman 17.5 hp 42" mower? The new belt is around the pulleys but it is very loose.


This belt is easist to install with the deck all the way down. Make sure there are no burrs on any of the pulleys, (will eat up your new belt in short order), also make sure that the 2 drive pulleys for the blades turn freely, (may have grass impacted around them, you may need to remove the 2 guards on top of the deck to clean, (if they do not spin eaisly). Triple check to make sure the belt is properly routed, one mistake and your belt is broken as soon as you engage. With the engine OFF, engage blades to check tension. If the belt is still loose, you likely have it routed incorrectly.
