Question about Ariens Garden

Open Question

I have a Ariens mini zoom 1534, model 915069, serial 35005. A spring sheared off, I found it on the lawn during use this past Sun. I got a new spring. The belts now are NOT in tension. I'm assuming this spring is required to put them in constant tension. It is not apparent where to attach the spring. Not sure if I lost another piece, a post or cross bar. I don't have the operators manual. HELP! Leaves are piling up!

SOURCE: Long drive belt cant remember how to put spring back on

The 'j' hook hooks over the transaxle and just hangs there. The spring attaches to the stabilizer rod (reference # 43) and the other end attaches to the "j' hook hanging on the left axle.

SOURCE: My MTD Yardman HE4160 just stopped yesterday

You can start by getting a manual here:

The above web site also has a "parts finder" that gives detailed drawings for each model.

If you look around under the mower, you should be able to find the hole, or bracket where the spring was hooked. (look for rub marks, or scratches)

If the spring just fell off for no apparent reason, it may have been connected to a bracket that broke off (rust, vibration, etc) It is usually easier to make a new bracket then to try finding a replacement.

SOURCE: Ariens 1534 zero turn mower will not start. It

Sounds like a defective solenoid. Locate the solenoid, using a heavy guage wire or one side of your jumper cables, or just opne of the clamps if you can open them far enough, jump cross the 2 main posts (the ones with the battery cable) and if it cranks like this, replace the solenoid

How to relace drive belt on ariens tractor a20va46?

There are multiple belts on the Ariens A20VA46 lawn tractor. Which belt are you asking about?

Service and Owner's manuals can be downloaded from the following link: Find Manuals by entering your tractor's model and serial numbers.

The deck drive belt is easy to change by releasing spring pressure on the idler pulley (usually under a plastic cover). See the user's or service manual for directions from the above link.

The two transmission belts are somewhat more difficult, but are usually long-lasting. The newer type of continuously variable transmissions used on these tractors have a friction belt like a snowmobile but under much less load. As a result, they are long-lasting. The engine to transmission belt is a conventional V-belt and may require occasional replacement. Usually, there's a similar tensioner pulley you would release in order to replace this belt.

Where can i get an ARIENS drive belt, new or used

Anyplace that sells Ariens mowers will have one. Most other lawn mower stores can also sell you one. Remove the old belt and take that and the model Airens you have to get a replacement. You do not want a used belt just get a new one.
