SOURCE: Craftsman riding mower won't move.

yes it is a bad belt unless it is a hydro-stat(no clutch) you need to look under the mower and see if the belt is on correctly

SOURCE: My craftsman 15.5HP kohler riding mower turns over

Try cleaning or better yet, replacing the spark plug. Depending on age and how your tractor was maintained, there are other possible causes.

  • Gummed up fuel system
  • dirty fuel filter
  • defective or misaligned armature/magneto (part that causes your plug to spark, igniting the air/fuel mixture, thus starting the engine)
  • throttle linkage/cable problems
  • low oil level. Some Kohler engines use a low oil shut down sensor which won't allow the engine to run or start to avoid internal damage.
  • Mechanical engine problems
I hope you find this solution helpful. Please rate it thanks for using Fixya!

Craftsman riding mower


Hi Jerry:
My Craftsman ride on Mower does not have "gears" as such.
There are separate forward and reverse pedals.
Can you give us a model number for your machine?

Why won't my riding mower start, using the key?


There should be a switch on the gear shifter so it will only start when in neutral. If the switch is bad (or the shifter is in gear) the solenoid with not engage.

Riding mower won't go nowhere it's got drive belt on but won't drive


Is it a hydro? check the release lever some times i forget too. If its gears then try different gear and check that the belt is engaging fully if the clutch spring broke your pedal shouldn't push back up.

Lawnmower wont move in fwd or reverse


Is the brake sticking. On my craftsman mower there is a bar under the brake pedal that pushes back a lever when starting. And the lever sticks. I have to reach underneath and pull the lever forward and then the mower goes. I haven't found a solution to that yet.

Craftsman hydrostatic strains but won't go forward or reverse


Hi,
There is a brake lever attached to your transaxle, that when activated, pushes dowel pins which serve as brake pistons, against a brake pad which presses against a disk from your transaxle...whew. Much like a disk break on your car.
The pistons, or dowel pins may be sticking, causing you to be "riding your brake". A little disassembly and some good ole WD-40 might loosen up the bind.
Good luck!

Will not go into gear


a hydro uses a foot pedal on the right side , you push forward to go forward or rock the pedal rearward to go in reverse - a regular transmission has a shifter usually between your legs for reverse 1st 2nd or 3rd gear - you also said the blades wont engage . are they electric ( with a switch ) or do you manually move a lever .
