SOURCE: john deere x340 wont move

there is a release usually behind the seat that has to be pulled in order to push it physically. make sure that the release is pushed in for the forward/reverse to work.

SOURCE: wont move forward or reverse-- transmission??

Does it have gears or a hydrostatic (automatic) transmission?

If it's a gear model, sounds like a loose drive belt.

If it's hydrostatic, it could be a belt problem or a problem inside the transmission. If it's a tranmission problem, this is not good. Many of the transmissions on riding lawn mowers are not serviceable - they are just replaced.

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.

SOURCE: MTD riding mower does not move forward or reverse.

this is a belt driven transmission. from the engine driven pulley going aft towards the xmission differential there is another smaller variable speed pulley, there is a long belt between these two, from the variable speed pulley there is a larger xmission pulley that sits kitty-corner to it with a belt between these two. This larger "xmission pulley" is what drives the differential and depending upon which gear you have selected, makes it go forward or reverse. Check that both belts between pulleys are on, check that pulley's hardware is completely secured (nuts tightened down) The heads of these pulley's are splined to align to the shaft(s) and if they aren't tight, they will just spin and not engage the transmission. If your battery is under the seat, remove it and you should be able to see and access the aft pulleys. If both belts are on and engaging the pulley's and the shaft is turning on the transmission pulley than you have transmission differential failure. Bet it's the belt off or pulley head loose. Good luck, hope this helps

SOURCE: ariens ezr 1742 will not move

There is one common problen that causes this. Infront of the rear wheels there are two housings for the indepentent hydrostatic transmissions. There is one gold colored shaft with a ninety degree angle on it sticking out from EACH of the housings on the top front. Again these are on both sides and they each need to be pushed downward so that the rods can then be pushed backward into the transmissions to inguage them so both of the wheels are powered. Give this a try.

Why doesn't it move forward or in reverse?


Many tractors and mowers have a key way on the axle and axle bore on the wheel hub.. Did you remove the tire and wheel from the mower axle? ..if you did most likely the drive axle key fell out of its slot on the drive axle and when you replaced the wheel it has no way to drive the wheels..try this start the mower put it in gear and try to move..have someone watch the end of the axle at the wheel
..if the key is missing the axle will be turning..but not the wheel..any good hardware store should carry them. just measure the depth and width of the key..something like 1/4,3/8 etc...good luck..

My mower goes just fine in forward gear, but barely moves in reverse, and if on any type of incline, doesn't move at all


If the transmission is serviceable change the oil and filter, change the drive belt as well.... If it's a completely sealed unit, trying changing the drive belt, but it sounds like the transmission has worn out.. Springs, plates... Etc...

L.P. powered forklift will not move in reverse. Forklift will lift, shift, and move forward, but will not move in reverse. While in reverse the engine will rev up, but there is no reverse movement...this...


Check for blown fuses and check the reverse solenoid. You can swap the forward solenoid with the reverse one. If it works, then replace the solenoid.
