Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.
Sounds like the drive belt may have just came off an idler pulley once brake was engaged. Look under machine and make sure belt is on all pulleys fully. This is common and would mean in the end the belt is loose and would need replaced eventually. Let me know how the belt is on the pulleys and we can troubleshoot from there if needed.
