Will not go into drive gear, either forward or revers.


On some models, mainly MTD built units, there is a metal pull out at the rear of the mower. If you pull it slightly up and let go, the metal pin goes in, and your drive train is bqck to operational.

Front wheels lock up when pull mower backwards


Typically self-propelled mowers are propelled using the front wheels, which only turn forward. Pulling the mower back while the front wheels are turning will damage the drive gears. It's best to raise the front wheels slightly off the ground before pulling back.
