A mouse nest could be tangling up the return mechanism. Sounds like the drive cable isn't returning completely to the free spot after you let go.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

You either have the wrong belt(s), routed them incorrectly or have an idler that's stuck in it's engaged position and not backing off.
The belt should be a little loose when you don't have the handle pulled in, down ....

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I don't know how that Husqvarna is, but a lot of blowers keep the belt tight all the time and engage and release the friction drive. Is yours hydrostatic or friction drive?

The platter that friction wheel touches should have a spring pulling it away from the friction wheel (rubber wheel) at rest like Shryp mentioned. If you have the belly pan off you can actually pull up on the platter and it should go back down by itself.
Does the drive lever cable have any slack with the lever up? If it's tight, you need to back down the cable adjuster at the top or pic a higher loop hole in the bracket below near the tractor body. Don't know how yours is setup, but you mention cables, so guessing you don't have metal rods from handlebar to tractor. Here's video describing the opposite problem you have, but should give you some idea what I'm trying to say.

Here's another if you have the adjustments at the bottom

I remember working on a newer Craftsman that actually had the drive idler controlled by the handlebar lever to engage the drive belt. The drive pulley and platter were static, and the belt would go loose at rest, tight when the idler arm engaged it. Essentially the friction wheel was always in contact with the platter. If I remember right the friction wheel assembly had a bracket on the left side that a bolt could be loosed on the left tractor body to allow the friction wheel assembly to pivot a bit. Very different than old Ariens setups. If yours is setup like this did you route the new drive belt correctly, INSIDE the idler and INSIDE the belt keeper around the engine PTO?
A static drive disc with a idler engagement of the drive.
