Hi Paul It sounds like the belt is worn, stretched, or possibly just two long for your machine. Save yourself a lot of aggrivation by checking your operator manual and getting exactly the right belt for your mower.

You don't say how old your machine is but if it has been mowing for many, many hours, the tensioning spring may need to be replaced. If that is the case you can order a new one at Sears.com

Make sure the belt has not slipped off of the pulley on the engine output shaft just above the cutting blade. It is common with those type of drives for debris to make the belt hop off.

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

Normally the belt diagrams are in the owners manual. Seeing this is a 12 year old machine the diagram stickers are possibly gone, but the drive belt diagram is normally on the bottom side of the foot rest, and the mower belt is on the top of the mow deck. Both are typically on the left side of the tractor as you sit on it. Please vote 4 thumbs up. Thank you.

Here is the link to a typical 42" Craftsman mow deck belt:

Craftsman front wheel self-propelled, push mower: belt keeps slipping off tension pin. Also, the wheels don't rotate as rapidly as when I first bought it last year.


Make sure the pulleys are aligned perfectly straight and replace the old belt with a new one. The pulleys have an allan head set screw you need to loosen to adjust the pulley.
