Replaced w/a new V-belt(part #532182212)
The belt is so loose that it will not propel the mower.
I have tried the adjustment on the handle but will still not pull.
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Make sure you have the idler pulleys on the right side of the v-belt this is where the belt gets its tension. One pulley should be flat (outside of belt) and one pulley should be “v” shaped for inside.

Your riding mower belt keeps coming off because of several possible causes such as a damaged, dirty, or incorrectly installed belt. This problem can also be due to an oil leak, damaged mower pulleys, damaged bearings, or a misaligned or stretched out belt.
If your serpentine belt keeps coming off, it`s likely due to one of three issues: the tensioner is loose, the pulleys are misaligned, or the belt is worn out. If the tensioner is loose, you`ll need to tighten it. If the pulleys are misaligned, you`ll need to realign them.
A bypass lever is located on the back of the frame, pull out on the lever to move the mower and push it back in before mowing.
A perfectly tight mower belt can rotate without slipping off but not cause the engine to over-exert and overheat. If the belt does not slip off while working and is not producing unfavorable sounds that indicate wearing off of the belt, then that is the perfect tightness for it.

I cant replace the deck belt on my husqvarna ct151 lawn mower. the old one snapped and i have no idea what way the new one goes on around the pulley wheels.
ANSWER : The manual shows how the belts are put on, if you do not have one they may be purchased through dealers or small engine repair shops or online. On mine there is also a little diagram on the top of the mower deck. Another way to check is find an identical one that is functional and look at its belt. There are only so many ways it could fit and these are all made by just one or two manufacturers so there is not much variance.
