most likely your tensioner spring is worn that holds tension to the belt when engaged , or you may just get a inch or 2 smaller belt.

What engages the blade when you pull the engagement lever on a riding lawnmower?

Most lawn tractors don't have any fancy clutch system, but simply use the belt to engage and disengage the blades. When the blades are disengaged, the drive belt is slack and there isn't enough friction to the pullel to drive the blades. When engaged, the belt is taught and the belt drives the blades. Tension is controlled by a spring loaded pulley. When you pull the lever to disengage the blades, you pull this pulley away from the belt. When you engage the blade, the spring pushed the pulley into the belt, tensioning it.

Craftsman riding mower that shuts off when you put the blades up?

If you are saying that the mower shuts off when you engage the blades (or put the lever for the blades in the up position) then the most common problem is a bad seat safety switch. This is located under the seat. It has two wires going to it.

Why will the blades not engage on L130 John Deere Riding Mower Blades Not work?

This has actually happened to me. There are some things you want to check.Make sure the blades are able to turn.Check your belts.Another problem might be with your PTO engage switch, these rarely burn out but the one on my tractor did.Check all things that engage the PTO, make sure all the lines and wires are connected and operational.My absolute best advice is to check with a dealer, but run over these things first so you don't go running to them with a simple problem.
