Q:

Why does my deck belt from the motor to the deck jump off when I lower it down. 917274961 Craftsman Lawn tractor

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. I know how frustrating it is when a product does not preform the way it should. If the belt keeps coming off when you lower the deck, I recommend checking the deck adjustment. If the front of the mower deck is tipped to far down the belt will come off easily. The instructions for checking and adjusting the mower deck are located in the manual. Just in case you do not have the manual, I posted the instructions in the image below. Just click on the image to enlarge it. The best place to adjust the mower deck is in the garage or on any hard level surface. When making the front to back adjustment I recommend having the front of the blade 1/8 inch lower than the back. After you make the adjustment, check the operation. If the belt still comes off, I recommend checking the pulleys the belt goes around. Just try to wiggle then to see if the bearings are loose. If the bearings are loose, the pulley has to be replaced. The reason being a pulley with worn bearings will toss the belt off rather quickly. If you need to order any parts for the tractor, you can do so from the following link. Replacement parts for a Craftsman tractor model 917274961.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a  Sears technician.  Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services
