My mower runs and the blades will engage but the mover will not move. I have the engagement lever (on the back of the mover in the correct position). The drive belt has tension but doesn't rotate when the mover is put in gear (forward or reverse) The level to engage the drive (forward/reverse lever) seems to work and move the proper levers on the transmission.
This happened while mowing. The mower just stopped moving.
Any suggestions?

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! I'm not seeing a "YT3000" lawn tractor/mower on the Sears site. I'm pretty sure you're going to have two different belts on the mower: one for the blades; one for the drive. Have you checked both of these? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Jan 16 '18 at 0:26
  • I have checked both belts and they are good. The model # is 917.288522 – John H Jan 17 '18 at 15:10
