John Deere 115 Automatic main drive belt smoking!!!

John I have a 115 series the original belt became frayed and worn so I replaced it with new one and it is still smoking and chewing it up. Any ideas as to why?
Dana Is is the deck belt or the ground drive belt? Is it possible that the new one was not routed correctly and is rubbing on something?
Craig Mine is a L111. The deck belt jumped over one of the belt guides, started smoking and got all chewed up. If it's still doing it, maybe the belt tension needs to tightened. It's in the manual. Mine is just loosening 2 nuts and moving the cable bracket away from the center of the deck to tighten the spring connected to a sheave. Or maybe when you put the new one on you routed it on the wrong side of the belt guide.
