Why won't my riding lawnmower shift into reverse?


Some mowers will not allow you to shift into reverse with the blades engaged for safety reasons. Try disengaging the blades then shift into reverse.

Lawnmower wheels won't drive


If its a riding mower it probably the drive belts off track or slung off. The mower will still start up and turn blades with the drive belt off, but want engage to go forward or reverse if this is the problem.

Blade engagement lever won't disengage


If this is a manual engagment system all the lever does is to pull a jockey wheel into the back of the belt to tention it thus starting the blades to turn, so either the cable is jammed that pulls the jockey wheel in, or the jockey wheel arm is seized and needs freeing off to allow the jockey to to move to the relaxed position.

Stalls When engaging the blade clutch


Check that the blade brake is disengaging. Slip belt off blade spindles and check that they spin freely. Check underside of deck for clogged grass, ropes, wire, etc.

I cannot disengage the cutting attachment so that the mower will start; it seems like it is stuck, because when I attempt to disengage the blades the lever will not move into the disengaged position. How...


You haven't specified the model number, but pretty much all riding mowers use a plunger-type electrical switch to engage the mower. If it's stuck in the 'lifted' position (mower engaged) then it has broken internally. You must replace it. In doing that, the wires need to be placed back on the correct terminals, so take a picture of the wires (showing their colors) before you disconnect them from the switch. Take the broken switch to a lawnmower shop to find a replacement. Shouldn't be more than $10 - $20. Good luck! Please rate my solution if you found it helpful.
