Why won't my 22 in. Kohler Low Wheel Variable Speed Self-Propelled Gas Lawn Mower self propel anymore?


i would guess that the belt is'nt tight enough when engaged. when you press the drive bar on the handle it should make the belt really tight if not it will need replaced. sometimes the gears in the wheels will mess up. there are videos on you tube that describe that and also the belt.

My 650 series self propelled is not working. the propell engage cable still has tension but when I grip it to engage it does nothing. It doesn't make any funny sounds or any thing like that. The mower...


I believe your problem to be with belt adjustment. Your engage cable is apparently working because there is tension. Check end of engage cable where it attaches to tighten belt, check to see if belt is broken or close to being broken, or so worn down there is no grip left. You may need to replace belt or just adjust belt. I hope this will ease your up hill struggles.

Self propelled #860. self propell got slower and slower. now barely assists. can I adjust the belt. manuual says bring it in. too far. how do I tighten? thx, bruce


Hello,

Your self propell is not adjustable. The belt runs over a spring tensioner,you either need a new belt or axle bushings. If you pull the top cover off, you can watch the belt when you engage it. With the engine off, can you move the front wheels up or down or forward or backward? If so the plastic bushings are worn out and this changes the geometry of the drive system, making the belt appear too long.

Hope this was helpfull, Matt

Self propelled feature stopped functining. I previously replaced the wheels after the gears had worn down. Now I can't get any response to engaging the self-propelled cable.


Have you checked the drive belt? There should be a belt running from the main shaft (above blade) out to the wheel drive. You didn't list model number but I'm assuming it's front wheel drive. There should be a cover over this belt so it might be hard to see from underneath. Also there should be a cover on top going to the drive transmission. If the belt is OK, check to be sure lever is moving the transmission lever.

Self-propelled feature does not work at all! Any suggestions?


You might have a broken belt to the self propelled or a broken spring or whatever engages the self propel. Take off the cover and see if anything is broken or missing. Have someone engage the self propel while you are watching and see what is going on.

Self propel always engaged


you may have lost the spring that pulls the transmission drive belt down or have the cable adjuster too tight.word of caution here, the cable goes thru the engagement lever and if you overtighten it the lever will crack or break. if it does the complete transmission will have to be replaced.seems they dont make the lever avalible seperate.

Toro Personal Pace self propel problem.


Your self-propel is probably belt driven. Belts can make an awfully lot of noise when unhappy. Possible it has rolled over and is running on the wrong side of the belt or is worn and just needs replaced. Hope this helps.,
