Did you buy the correct belt?
It may be too long.

Check to make sure the belt is properly set in the pulleys. I had the same problem and noticed the belt had loosened and come off the pulley. I routed it over the pulley and then adjusted the belt - there should be a tensioner on the mower to tighten the belt. That should work.
