    While mowing today I started smelling rubber burning occaisonally, get a screeching sound when I engage the blades and hear a knocking under the deck every 10 seconds or so. The mower is just starting it's thrid season, blades are new. Any suggestions.

    Check your belt's and pulleys for debris.
    Also check your belt tension.
    Let us know what you do or don't find.
    Your dealer can also find the problem if you want to take it to them.

    It was the idler pulley. Sheared at around the bearing.

    Ok.
    Did your dealer take care of you?
    Is your unit in warranty still?
