Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you.
Can you tell me a little more about what is happening? The belt that you replaced was the mower deck belt? If so, it sounds like there may not be enough tension on the belt. Does the machine move forward and backward?
The drive pulley on the engine is rotating or on the transmission?
So can you tell me if the pulley on the top of the transmission is turning? It sounds like your belt is too loose which is causing the belt to not turn which would also cause the pulley on the transmission to not turn.
Well, if the pulley on the transmission is turning then I doubt that it is a belt problem. Did you by chance pull the lever to release the transmission so that you could push the machine prior to replacing the belt? Make sure that this lever is pushed back otherwise the machine will not pull itself.
Okay, so you are actually looking at the pulley on the top of the transmission. I would take a closer look at the transmission belt to be sure that it is turning the pulley on top of the transmission.
It has been a pleasure to assist you.
