I have a 3 year old JD 130. Mowing my yard this afternoon

Customer Question

I have a 3 year old JD 130. Mowing my yard this afternoon and mower quit moving forward. Engine runs fine and blades turn fine. If you try to move forward or backward it will move in that direction for just a second and stop as if it has no power. Have tried turning engine off for 5-10 minutes and restarting and disengaged and re-engaged the transmission engagement lever on the back of the mower. None of this had any effect. What do I need to do to fix it?
