Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Check your belts for wear or damage and make sure the linkage is moving on top of the transmission. After you have done this, be sure that the pulley on top of the transmission is spinning ! If you have done all this, remove the linkage from the transmission, push the lever on the transmission forward. Also, check that the spring on the foot pedal is still installed correctly. Have any of the tires been removed after backing into garage?
If it dont move after this you have something internal inside the transmission, please repsond back with your results and we can go further !
If the best is loose, I would say you have a belt issue. possible that it has gotten stretched. Is the drive belt running on all pulleys like it should? At times I have seen it slip off the idler pulley and become loose so it will not work as it should
no problem. good luck. I hope you have a good weekend.
I would recommend changing the belt. If it were mine, I would change the belt first and go from there.
