Put your left foot on the clutch pedal and push down all the way on the clutch. Move the throttle lever all the way to the top, this turns on the choke. Turn the key clockwise, to the right, to start the engine. Once the engine has started, move the throttle lever down to turn off the choke. You only need the choke when the engine is cold. If you use the choke while the engine is hot, you can flood the engine (too much gas) and this will fowl the spark plug. If you have flooded the engine, turn off the choke by lowering the throttle lever and try to start the engine a few times. If the engine doesn't start, then you may need to wait 20 to 30 minutes before trying to start the engine again. If the engine still does not start, then you can remove the spark plug to dry and to clean the spark plug. With the spark plug out, turn the key to the start position for 10 seconds, to push out excess fuel and fumes. Replace the spark plug and try starting the engine without turning on the choke.

SOURCE: MTD riding mower does not move forward or reverse.

this is a belt driven transmission. from the engine driven pulley going aft towards the xmission differential there is another smaller variable speed pulley, there is a long belt between these two, from the variable speed pulley there is a larger xmission pulley that sits kitty-corner to it with a belt between these two. This larger "xmission pulley" is what drives the differential and depending upon which gear you have selected, makes it go forward or reverse. Check that both belts between pulleys are on, check that pulley's hardware is completely secured (nuts tightened down) The heads of these pulley's are splined to align to the shaft(s) and if they aren't tight, they will just spin and not engage the transmission. If your battery is under the seat, remove it and you should be able to see and access the aft pulleys. If both belts are on and engaging the pulley's and the shaft is turning on the transmission pulley than you have transmission differential failure. Bet it's the belt off or pulley head loose. Good luck, hope this helps

My MTD Yard machines riding mower won't start.


Probably dead gas from sitting too long. Dump it out & put in fresh gas.Could have moisture in it. Pull out spark plug & crank it over several times after putting gas & let it sit a while to dry out or blow it out with compressed air. It should go.
