Question about John Deere Garden
Usually this parking brake lever slides up or down depending on the actual position of the brake pedal meaning ... you can lock the brake pedal in position whenever you stop (park) for whatever reason so the lawn mower will not roll. When you want to continue to mow or simply ride, you make sure the brake pedal is depressed and move this orang parking brake level to an off position and off you go on your merry way. Currently this lever does not move up or down. I've looked in the compartment to see a single metal rod that goes down into an enclosed area where I can't see the full details. I can use the lawn mower, but can't "park" it in a safe condition ... menaing, it can still roll if not on level surface. I have the operator's manual, but no exploded parts catalog or view to determine how this orange parking brake lever interacts/interfaces with the actual brake mechanism. Any ideas what I should do next? Is there some sort of cable involved here that has ound up? I couldn't see anything, as I said. I guess I need to build some sort of a ramp mechanism so I can get it up high enough to see fully from beneath it.
I hope I make sense here.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
The parking break is associated with your foot break. Depress the foot break ALL THE WAY down, then you will find that your parking break can be pulled all the way up.
