Hello davisonfam,


You need to look under the machine and make sure the belt is still on the engine and deck pulleys, If so take a look at the engagement linkage and make sure it's still connected.

There's also a large spring on the front of the deck, When the deck is engaged this spring pulls the deck forward to tighten the belt.

Just do some snoopin around and see what you find.....


Good Luck

Most likely something has came loose (a linkage rod) or broke, I know it's hard to see under this thing the way the deck mounts so you may need to remove the deck to find the problem.
