cub cadet 1715

I have an older cub cadet that I bought used. I can't shift the transmission into another gear unless I turn off the engine and then it will shift. The manual says to press down part way on the brake pedal to release the transmission belt before shifting. When I do this it will take tension off the belt but the belt will still turn the trans. pulley. To set the brake the brake pedal is depressed all the way down. Does anyone know if this is a transmission problem or a brake problem or a combination of both? I've adjusted the brake which goes to the trans. according to the manual. Should the drive belt stop turning completely when the brake pedal is depressed part of the way?

Yes, the belt should stop turning. Sounds like it may have the wrong belt on it... maybe someone put a generic belt on it.
