Those have nylon gears in the transmission so what probably happened is you chewed the teeth of the gears. In most cases it is cheaper to push it then to replace the transmission

SOURCE: Toro 6.5 self propelled Mower - Self Propell won't engage

see if the lever going to the gearbox is cracked or broken. there is a gear inside the box that has a pin going thru the shaft that may have broken but usually it is external. these mowers have a plastic lever to put the transmission lever in gear if the cable is overtightened they wont hold up.if it cracks it leaves practially no tension on the engagment system

SOURCE: Honda lawn mower, self propelled mechanism not working

check the mechanism first before changing the gearbox its possible that the cable might jump out from the pulley or the cable is worn out or its possible that the gear on the tire is worn out to if not then that would be the time for you to change the gear box it would be hard to change it if you don't have the right tools to work on it if you know how everything work its not that hard to replace it just make sure were everything goes memorize the parts before disassembling cause that would be you guide to reassemble it...goodluck

Hi, I have a JS63C self propelled push mower that is having trouble with the self proppelled device. At the first speed 1 you can feel some self propell. However, if you advance to speed 2 or speed 3 you...


Hi Jerry. Sounds like your transmission cable needs to be adjusted. Since 1st gear is easiest for it to move in, you probably have little pressure on the clutch. Take the cover off the back of the mower (Torx T25 or T30 can't remember at the moment.) The spring on the cable should be measured when relaxed (handle not being held) then when you squeeze the S/P handle, it should stretch the spring 10mm. A friend or a clamp will make holding the handle and measuring more simple. Adjust the bracket the cable clips into in front of the tranny to obtain the desired 10mm, and you should be under power again.

How do you remove the gears on a front wheel self propelled troy bilt push mower?


Take the front tires off, pull gears and take out pins, put tires back on and you have a "non-self propell" mower.

My ariens 824 wont go forward or reverse. snow thrower still works. wheels start to move a bit then stop


I would check your traction drive disc for wear or shredding.With low or little fuel in tank you can safely grab handle bars and lift machine up on it's auger housing.Then remove shield from under machine and inspect metal disc with rubber around it.If rubber looks worn you can get a replacement traction drive disc easily from most small engine repair shop's or go online and look for your nearest Ariens dealer.

My toro self propelled isn't self propelling


It may just be a matter of adjusting the cable. Sometimes they dont get them adjusted just right from the factory,heres what you do. Locate the plastic shroud in front of the push mower that covers the drive unit.Determine which screwdriver or torx bit is needed to remove shroud and remove it. After removal you will see a pulley with belt around it, as you pull the handle back to engage self propel you should see the pulley move into the belt to put tension on the belt. You can do this with it running to see if enough tension is being put on the belt,if not, locate the cable end where the small bracket holds the cable in place. Loosen the cable bracket and move cable until you have correct tension again,hope this helps.

Self propelled function


There are few things that may have gone wrong:
First thing to check is if when pushing pedal it moves gears located on the rear axle (you will have to take cover shell off to see that)
If that works fine then primary belt may be broken (see it here). Then just replace entire set to make sure that belt type matches gears
Last - the most expensive problem - the main transmission belt within transmission is broken (then I would recommend replacing entire transmission)
