Check to make sure the trannsmission is not in freewheel. The lever on Murrays is ussually under the seat. If not that then its likely a transmission belt problem. Check that the belt is on, all pulleys are free, and that the axle key is in place.

Husqvarna 4623 zero turn mower will not move

Maintanance - How to purge Hydraulic drive system Published 01/13/2010 11:56 AM ' Updated 06/02/2015 02:52 PM
How do I purge the hydraulic system?
Hydrostatic transmissions use oil, under pressure, to provide movement for the tractor. The fluid is pressurized with a pump inside the transmission. If any air is in the fluid, the pump will try to pressurize air. This condition is known as cavitation, and is detrimental to the pump since it allows the pump top operate dry. When the pump cavitates it is not pressurizing any fluid, so the transmission is not able to provide the movement needed.
If your mower is new, or has been stored for a long period (longer than 2 months) the transmission needs to be purged before use. Also, if you experience loss of drive, or slower response, then the transmission should be purged first.
The following procedure will remove trapped air inside the transmission(s).
Step 1- Place the rear of the mower safely onto jackstands on a level surface with engine off and parking brake set.

Step 2- Disengage transmission by placing freewheel control, located at the back of the frame, in the freewheeling position.

2a- Mowers with seperate pumps and wheel motors the freewheel is activated by turnign the bypass valves, one on each pump, two full turns.
The oil resevoir needs to be filled to the specifications listed in the owners manual before starting the purge procedure.
Step 3- Sitting in the operators seat(riders), start engine. After the engine is running, move throttle control to slow position. With motion control levers in neutral (N) position, slowly disengage clutch/brake pedal.
Step 4-Move motion control levers to full forward position and hold for five (5) seconds. Move levers to full reverse position and hold for five (5) seconds. Repeat this procedure three (3) times.

NOTE: During this procedure there may be some movement of the drive wheels, but they are not under load. The air is being removed from hydraulic drive system.

Step 5-Move motion control levers to neutral (N) position. Shutoff engine and set parking brake. Check and add oil as needed for units with an oil resevoir.

Step 6-Engage transmission by placing freewheel control into driving position, or by closing the bypass valves on the pumps.
Step 7-Sitting in the operators seat, start engine. After the engine is running, move throttle control to full speed. With motion control levers in neutral (N) position, slowly disengage clutch/brake pedal.

Step 8-Slowly move motion control levers forward, after the tractor moves approximately five (5) feet, slowly move motion control levers to reverse position.
After the mower moves approximately five (5) feet return the motion control levers to the neutral (N) position. Repeat this procedure with the motion control levers three (3) times.

Step 9-Your mower is now purged and now ready for normal operation.For further information or assistance, we recommend contacting your lo

When i put in the baking pan, the kneading blade does not move

If the motor is working and the paddle doesn't move, take the pan out and see if the drive shaft is turning. If not then it's probably a broken belt. If it is then check for a seized shaft in the pan.

I cannot remove the paddle from my Hobart stand mixer. I was making a very large batch of cookies and when I finished the paddle would not come off. I put the paddle on just before starting the cooki

Get some CRC into the top between shaft and paddle socket and in and around that driving lug on the side. Then grasp the paddle with a hand on either side and rock (turn) it back and forth as forcefully as you can until it starts to come free. Eventually it will start to move and you will be able to remove it. Polish the shaft and scrape out the hole, it is flour that has wafted in there that has tightened it up, it packs & embeds itself into the aluminium paddle.

My MTD will not move when I put it in forward or reverse

MTD utilizes a 2 belt variable pulley system. The first step if you lose drive is to attempt to reset the system. Place in neutral and let clutch out with speed selector in highest position or press the motion pedal all the way down. Then attempt to drive at a moderate speed. If still no motion then check both belts. Be sure they are on all the pulleys. The rear/upper belt should have tension on it all the time. The front/ lower belt will be loose when the clutch is depressed and will tighten when released or the motion pedal is depressed.

Motor runs paddle does not move

Your drive belt is probably broken or has slipped off. unplug your machine and turn it on its side (remove the pan and paddle first) and remove the bottom panel with a screwdriver. You will then be able to see if the belt is broken or has slipped off. You can reach me at for reinstall or replacement of your belt.

Step count not accurate

The sensor is not necessarily counting steps as much as motion that is enough to be considered to be equal to a stepping motion. Positioning the device differently may result in a more accurate count.

The mower with not move! I put it in forward push the gas paddle and it will not move. It just wont move, it has a brake paddle and a gas paddle and brake. All yard machines basicly have the same setup in...

Inspect the drive belt,if it is broken.Under the hood is a list of parts and part numbers.Find the drive belt on there and get a replacement.The package the belt comes in has the diagram for installation on the back.Would not be a bad idea to go a head and change the deck belt if it is ore than 2 years old,while you are under there.

While the machine is kneading it makes an awful grinding sound.It sounds like the paddle is not moving.If you lift the dough up the paddle moves freely.

It sounds like your belt is slipping. All bread machine operate off of an electric motor and drive belt and they do wear out.

It's like the motor is going in slow motion when kneading...only about 10 min into the process too...then it simply doesn't turn anymore, like the dough is too stiff or heavy to move...

Hi, It could be a few things. It could be the paddle is sticking. Take the pan and paddle out of the machine and see if you can spin the paddle freely by hand. If it spins freely that is great. If it sticks then the sealed bearing that the paddle rotates in is failing. If everything is okay, then the belt is slipping and is too loose or is worn out. The dough gets thicker and requires more work for the belt. If the belt is loose then the paddle won't turn. The belt and motor is located in the base of the machine. Be sure to unplug before you check this out. Also, make sure the pan is installed correctly in the machine. Good luck...Hank
