Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Since you have replaced the belt has the machine operated at all?

Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 2 years ago.

This sounds like the brake may be stuck and not releasing.

Expert:  JohnF2015 replied 2 years ago.

Along the right side of the transmission you should find the brake assembly, just grab the lever that is sticking up on the side and pull it backwards toward the rear of the machine and see if that doesn't take care of the problem. Let me know that happens.
