FIRST THING TO CHECK WHEN YOUR MACHINE WILL NOT MOVE IS THE DRIVE BELT. YOU SHOULD HAVE A BELT THAT IS AROUND ALL PULLEYS AND NOT BROKEN OR CRACKED. CHECK THE BELT AND LET ME KNOW HOW IT LOOKS PLEASE..

My tractor is brand new purchased at the end of July no belts are broken.
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 10 months ago

If it is possible you ran over a stick, it is possible said stick knocked the belt loose, broke the belt, damaged the belt, or disengaged the bypass valve at the rear of the machine.

If the belt is on and around all the pulleys from front to back, and the bypass valve is in the engaged mode, then I would return to dealer as you may have a transmission issue

being as this happened while mowing, I would check the drive belt above the deck from front to back and on all idler pullies

The belt is off on the engine side which explains why it's so loose at the back. Is there a quick way to get this back on?
Technician: JON, Small Engine Technician replied 10 months ago

you will need to loosen the bolt on the crankshaft and slide the pulley downwards to reinstall the belt, and then just tighten bolt back up. Sometimes it will require the bolt be removed, but I would loosen it as much as you can first before complete removal
