I have a Husquvana mower and although it moves forward it

Customer Question

I have a Husquvana mower and although it moves forward it has slowed down. If you pull the brake pedal back with your foot it speeds up?
JA: What's the make and model of the mower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: 2 years old it is a CTH224T I think
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: not really
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.

Sounds like you are missing the return spring for pedal or it has stretched and not allowing for a full return of pedal

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
where is this spring and how do I fix it?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sorry, also is this the brake pedal or the drive pedal?
Expert:  JON replied 1 year ago.

I apologize. I misread the question. I was referring to the drive pedal. Give me a few moments to catch up and get you the correct info

Expert:  JON replied 1 year ago.

Check the spring for the brake. Sounds like it is not releasing brake all of the way and causing brake to say engaged.

Do you have a parts manual for this mower?

Expert:  JON replied 1 year ago.

you most likely need #532 10 57-09 Spring, Return, Clutch

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I don't have a parts manual. I will have a look later, thanks

Did you receive the parts manual? I sent it in a PDF file. Is should let you save to your computer for future use also
