GT275 deck belt burning up

Sam Williams I have replaced four drive belts in two weeks. I put on a new one and got one hour mowing out of the last one. It ot hot, streatched and broke into pieces. Do I look for bearing problems in the PTO clutch assemply or the Jack sheave on the Pirana mulch deck? Both were too ht to touch when the belt broke.
bontai Joe Check both, It sounds like a bad bearing somewhere that causing the belt to slip under load, which leads to belt failure. I'm assuming that you are using the correct size Deere belt? Or if you are using an $8 auto belt, that alone may be the problem.
