Sounds like a pulley is frozen up on the deck.

If it is a riding mower, as Cheese said a frozen deck pulley,or more than likely you have run over to much for the blades to handle and you need to inspect for a blade that is jammed by debris. Your blade belt can't turn and every time you put the pto in you are smoking the belt, which probably needs replacing now. tom
