Have a LT155 It runs great and mows fine but the problem now

Customer Question

Have a LT155 It runs great and mows fine but the problem now isit won't move forward or backwards all the time. When it gives me a problem I put the parking brake on and off and rock the unit and sometimes it moves what can be the problem?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else the Small Engine Technician should be aware of?
Customer: No it has been fully serviced and runs great
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Small Engine Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

good morning my name is ***** ***** ill see what I can do to help you out. The first place I would start is the drive belt and tensioner pulley. the pulley should be spring loaded and move freely. I assume that when you apply the brake you are moving that pulley and regaining your tension. does this only happen after the machine is warmed up? if so that may be a completely different issue
