SOURCE: my toro 20016 self propel is only turning the right wheel

Remove the left wheel and check the gears inside the wheel and the drive sheft. They might be worn or sheared and need renewing or maybe they just need oiling. Spray them with WD 40.

Selfpropelled portion stopped working, replaced broken belt,have correct p/n for new belt,belt is slack ,self propelled not working


There should be 3 pulleys one on the motor on top of the blade, one on the axle for the wheels and one that goes to your cable to engage that pully and tighten the belt, take the cover off that hides the axle and pull your handle for the self propell and see if its tighting, some mowers have a little adjuster to tighten the cable on the self propell handle or even on the cable itself, did you make sure to run the belt between the guides over the blade, let me know what you find so we can further help

Yes it is the transmission. A Mower shop will charge you about $225 to fix.. I order parts online and fixed mine for $90. Transmission consist of 3 gears which turns the rear wheels to self-propel.

Self propelled lawn mower makes whinning noise


disconnect the spark plug turn the mower on its side and inspect the drive belt on the pulley above the blade (on the crankshaft) it may have a shroud over it. Also there is a small gear case that maybe dry that the belt drives, that goes to the wheels, Also try lifting the drive wheels up off the ground and engage them and see if it still does it. if it stops once lifted it might be the bushings on the axle its self.

Self propell not working right


Leave aside all the puffery about 3-1 and such, you described a front wheel drive (pull) walk-behind (FWD), but are asking why the rear wheels won't propel. When you push down the hand grip the front wheels should spin free. Whan you lower from wheels by releasing pressure on hand grips, turning wheels lowered to ground should propel the mower along with its unpowered rear wheels now turning be ground contact. Reminder, never, ever lift rear drive wheels of any mower off the ground while walking behind with engine running:
  1. You could be struck by blade propelled object.
  2. You could pull mower and spinning blade backward onto your feet.
  3. You could lose balance and be pulled forward in a fall.
Contemporary FWD mowers are recognized by a black chain housing on deck top leading from engine to left front of deck. RWD propelling chains are situated underneath deck so cannot be seen from above.

How to remove rear drive wheels on old MTD 21


Daren Ingold's suggestion works only for the right rear wheel on my 19+ year old MTD Yardman 21" self propelled mower. The ratchet spur on rear left wheel is held on by a bolt in the center of the axle and a spline. Remove the center bolt and washer. Pry the ratchet spur off the spline by using three medium blade screwdrivers wedged between the wheel and the spur gently tapping the three screwdrivers in succession until the spur is half off the spline. It will come off easily after that. Remove the spur, noting direction, and remove the wheel and replace it with one of the front wheels (they're all the same design) if it is in better condition and use the rear wheel for the front. Good luck ever finding a new replacement for this particular wheel. My mower is 19+ years old but runs perfectly otherwise. Stored in dry basement.

I would probably take it back to where I bought it to begin with. But, I have an old Huskavara mower self propelled, at times if I set it on top of two 4 x 6 blocks (6 inches up) I have to take off the wheels and clean up the axles using thinner, degreaser, or gas, anything to break down oil or dirt. Then I oil the surfaces and reassemble, and the wheels work for a while.

First of all clean all the gunk from all the drive wheel areas and where the drive belt operates as well as the pulleys Check the belt as it could be broken or stretched. Maybe should replace the belt and lubricate all the working areas as well as wheels. Check the shear pin as well.

Belt jump off the drive pulley


I don't have this kind of mower. But I was faced with the same problem recently. I got my belt back on by taking a large wrench and affixing it to the bolt head holding the pulley which you want to slip the belt on. Hold the belt firmly against the pulley and turn the wrench and the belt in the grove will walk around the pulley until it slips in place.
