Hello Welcome to Just Answers. My name is***** i we can solve this together.

A couple questions to begin. Do you have the Full model number of your unit?

When you say you lower your blades and they dont spin. You are saying the engine is running fine. Its not like the engine dies or it doesnt seem to be a electrical problem? LIke a safety switch or a operator switch not working?

I know some of the units have belts that turn the blades.. Are you belts any good?

I would like to check over your diagram so please if you have it the model number of the unit..
