It should only do it when the mower is engaged. It's a safety feature, to prevent you from chopping up the people you might back over. My machine has a reverse button to override the safety switch, I have to push it everytime I want to mow backwards but I got used to it

I believe your reverse safety switch is shorting out when you shift it. Take off the cover where the shift lever is and remove the wire from the safety switch. If this cures the problem, replace the switch.

Why won't my riding lawnmower shift into reverse?


Some mowers will not allow you to shift into reverse with the blades engaged for safety reasons. Try disengaging the blades then shift into reverse.

Riding mower surges in forward and not reverse. It


Ok first of all is not an automatic.Its a pedal operated transmission. The motion is accomplished by tightening a belt with a moveable idler and it is only shifted with a lever to forward and reverse. The belt probabley has a burnt spot in it and it hits that spot and it feels like a surge. Replace the motion belt
