SOURCE: Blades do not spin fast enough to cut grass

If you got the right oem belt,ta\han you can look at the end where the cable attachs to spring and you should see a double nut adjustment loosen nuts and adjust to put more tension on the belt when you put lever into gear for blades to turn then retighten them .

SOURCE: 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!

I have a poulan pro PR1842STC; the blades won't stop turning after I disengage the mower belt


On the top of the mower deck, there is a spring that will pull to disengage the blade idler pulley. At the same time, it will release two springloaded arms with brakes that press on the pulleys at the top of the blade spindles. On top of the mower deck at the back, the two spring loaded arms may be held out of the braking position by a cam. Make sure the cam is free to allow the blade brakes to activate when you disengage the blades. If arms are out of alignment, or the parts are too worn, the blade brakes won't move and the blades keep spinning, even after you have disengaged and the safety switch is deactivated. This is a dangerous situation and should be fixed soon. Good luck.

I started the mower but the blades will not turn. I shut it off and was able to manually turn the blades by hand. I also was able to turn the belt wheel under the engine and have it turn the blades. ...


Most all riders have a safety seat switch now and they do malfuction alot. They are under the seat and are ez to replace most of the time. First look for a wire that is grounding due to rubbing a sharp object. That can be fixed with black tape

Good luck!!!

When I engage the blades nothing happens. Any ideas?


I have a YTH 150 with a similar problem. The mower has an electrically powered clutch which is activated when you engage the blade button. If the drive belt has no tension on it, engaging the clutch doesn't do anything because the drive wheel will just spin but the blades won't. Look for broken tension springs on the mower deck and replace.

I turn on the mower switch and the motor bogs but the blades do not turn


Since it bogs down, your PTO clutch is engaging, but something driven by the mower belt is stuck. Turn it off and look for simple things first: look under the mower deck for a branch or object jammed in there, or a bent blade. If that's all ok, then take off the mower belt and spin each of the spindles (the pulleys that drive the blades) and also the idler pulleys. If one if stuck or binding badly, you have found the problem. Idler pulley bearing are inexpensive, but spindles are spendy. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful, thanks.

Blades became disengaged -- won't engage


Sometimes the belt can jump off one pulley and cause the problem,follow the belt around all the pulleys and see if it came off one.there may be a belt loosening lever on the lh side of the mower deck, if so unlock it and reroute the belt around the pulley. If you need to replace the belt the manual has a good description on how to do it and should take 30 min with only a couple of tools.
