    i just bought a Toro 6.5 HP self propelled mower from Home Depot and my self propeller isn't working either. I am a young woman, do you think i can find and fix the problem easily?

    We have had the mower upside down and checked and belt seems fine. Not sure about what the pulley should or should not do or look like. We have downloaded manual and gone over the mower the best we can. Mower might propel for a short distance and then not. Surely would be nice to get this fixed as the grass is growing taller.:-)

    I have the same problem, except that if I engage the self propelling mechanism, the engine will strain, and eventually will smoke. Also the rear wheels will not go in reverse, hopefully only a simple belt problem but advise would be excellent

    Thanks!

This is a very simple solution, When you pull the lever it simply pushes a pulley into the belt to make it tight. Most of the time the belt has come off or maybe the cable broke. Turn the mower over and you will see the belt. My money is on the belt off.

Where is the model/serial numbers found on a toro self-propelled lawn mower found?


On the rear of the deck, usually under the black plastic shield. Lift the shield (like you were putting on the bag) you should find a white sticker with black lettering. The model number is 5 digits. If it is a commercial type model, sometimes they hide the sticker behind the handle name plate.
Good luck

My toro self propelled lawn mower won't roll backwards... the wheels are locked up


My Toro Pace Master self propelled 22" 6.75 mower will not move by itself. I can push the mower and cut. It does start with no problem. I have a cable on left side of the mower that extends to the top of the handle broken off at the top of the mower and is loose. Is there a way to check to see if this is why it will not self propel. It attaches to the push handle that does I push down to propel the mower. Any suggestions?

Self-propelled feature does not work at all! Any suggestions?


You might have a broken belt to the self propelled or a broken spring or whatever engages the self propel. Take off the cover and see if anything is broken or missing. Have someone engage the self propel while you are watching and see what is going on.

Front ppropelled mower


You dont adjust the belt,you adjust the cable that moves the pulley into the belt. There will be a small single bracket close to the engine side of the mower that holds the cable in place. Simply loosen bracket and move cable until pulley contacts belt enough to engage self propel.

Toro Personal Pace self propel problem.


Your self-propel is probably belt driven. Belts can make an awfully lot of noise when unhappy. Possible it has rolled over and is running on the wrong side of the belt or is worn and just needs replaced. Hope this helps.,
