With engine off, check to make sure blades turn freely and that bearings operate smoothly. Engage the blades (once again w/engine off),to check for belt tension. The spring that holds the tensioner can break or stretch. These would be the first things I would check...

Re: MTD ride on mower smokes

After it started does it now do it all the time or only when the blade is engaged? so if you disengage the blade does it stop?
Really sounds like somthings caught in the belt or the tension is off like fred said
