How do I replace the drive belt on my craftsman yts 3000 model no. 917.289220?

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

My Craftsman riding mower model Number 917.289220 YTS 3000 quit moving. It would not move in forward or reverse. I shut the mower down and investigated and found that the drive belt (not the blade belt) which is located above the mower deck had broke. I reached up and pulled it out, ordered a replacement belt online and just received it today. I now need to know how to replace the belt. I can't seem to be able to find my owners manual so I don't know if it has step by step directions or not. I just purchased the mower a year ago and I even purchased the extended warranty. I don't have a good place to work on the mower since it broke down at the bottom of the hill in my back yard. I don't think I have the strength to push it up the hill. Is there a step by step instruction manual that can walk me through the replacement of this drive belt?

I provided you with a


to the owner's manual of your Craftsman Riding mower. Pg 21 of the manual provided the directions for replacing the mower belt, along with the path of the belt.

I found the Manual to your Mower in Manage My Life under the Manuals button. I suggest you take a look at page 24 and there are instructions on how to change the drive belt. I attached the link below. Hope this helps.
