Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. I may need to ask you some troubleshooting questions as we go.
Did this problem occur suddenly, or gradually, over a period of time? Have you recently removed one of your rear wheels?
Thank you for this information. I would like for you to check something, when you have an opportunity. Check, to see if your lever is still attached properly to the lever on your transmission. Then check to see if there is a build up of dirt or debris on your transmission, that could be restricting the full movement of the bypass lever on your transmission.
Also, check to see if your transmission drive belt is fully tight, after you release your brake/clutch pedal. If your belt is slipping, this can affect the performance of your transmission. Double check to confirm whether the thick grass caused any issues relating to the movement of your mower.
Thanks for this information. Check your drive belt. Keep in mind that your mower have two belts. (Deck Belt and Drive Belt)
This could be part of our problem. Let's make sure that your belt is on all of your pulleys. Check the spring that attaches to your idler pulley arm.
If everything appears to be ok, then you may consider replacing your drive belt. Your existing belt may be stretched, causing it to be a bit loose.
There are not any adjustments for your belt. Looseness is accounted for, when you release your clutch/brake pedal, as long as your belt is in good condition.
Hello Luke. This is just a follow up, to see if all went well for you. Thanks again!
