When you shift the blade clutch lever to the engaged position, the blade clutch cable tightens the blade belt to spin the cutting blades. If the blade clutch cable is broken or worn, the blades won't spin. When the blades won't turn, look at the cable. If you find the blade clutch cable broken, replace it.
