On mine (front-wheel drive, about 8 years old) you first remove the plastic hubcap from the front wheel - then there's a big nut holding the wheel on. The hubcap just pops right off. I used a skinny, regular screwdriver to do it.

I have a Craftsman front wheel self propelled mower. The front wheels no longer turn either in self-propel or in manual push mode. What can be done to fix this?


Take a good look at the wheel assembly. Is it rusted on from being left exposed to the elements? Remove the cover for the self propelled mechanism. Is the drive belt intact? Try turning the small pulley.

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

Self-propelling action on 917.378771 not working


This type of mower uses a gear box driven by a v-belt. First check the v-belt. Is it in place and does it turn when the drive is engaged. You can also check the drive pinions in the wheels. These can wear out or "chew up" the insides of the drive wheels. I doubt it is the transmission, these are tough little units on this mower.

Craftsman self propelled lawn mower will not propell


Take off the cover up front on the self propel. Engage the self propel and make sure your cable is not broken. If that is ok then remove the wheels and inspect the molded cogs on the inside of the wheels and make sure they are not stripped out. If they are stripped go to www.sears.com and on the tool bar click on parts direct. Under model number enter yours and it will take you to a parts diagram. Get the part number for the wheels and go to local small engine parts dealer and get new. You can also do a search on the web for the wheels and maybe get them cheaper.

Good luck and let me know if this helps or you need any more help.

Need instructions how to install belt on self propelled craftsman push mower


raise the front of your mower up and support it with something safe like a jack stand
take the blade off
when your blade is off locate the plastic cover covering the belt and remove
now remove the belt but first remove the plastic cover on top of the mower to uncover the gearbox that turns the wheels your belt goes from the engine pulley to the gearbox pulley
you will have to work the belt off the pulley while turning the motor by hand or the same when installing the belt.
to install belt reverse the procedure.
hope this helps some

I have a 7hp briggs and straton craftsman self propelled push mower. It's a few years old but runs great, the only thing wrong is the self propelled part won't engage. I took it apart down to the axle but...


Could be a stretched out/broken belt, a worn out transmission or the drive teeth on the inside of the wheels could be worn out. I would start by looking at that. Remove the drive wheels and check for damaged or missing teeth.
