Question about Ariens 34 In. Zoom Series Riding Mower

1 Answer

St24 will not stay in gear when using anything higher than 2nd.

My machine is quite a few years old but works well except that it won't stay in anything higher than 2nd gear. Now that the season is over I want to get it ready for the next winter season.
I am not an expert but can do a few things. I can't find anything obvious but I am wondering if a worn friction wheel (the plate with the rubber on it that in turn drives the wheels) can cause this problem. It appears to be somewhat worn and cracked.

You are close, mowers that use a planitary and platter drive will pop out of gear when the wheel gets cracked too bad, it makes the wheel bounce rapidly and rattles the whole planetary mechanism until it pops out, Snapper uses a similar system with similar issues when the wheel goes bad.

Is this poor technique or bike problem? The bike fails to go from 1st to 2nd gear and can slip from 2nd into neutral even after engaging.


Depending on the age and use the machine has had, the problem would quite possibly be worn engagement cogs on the gears.
I would be considering a rainy day mechanical project, or a trip to my local repair tech to find out a cost estimate.

2004 Chevy Cavalier engine light and trac off light


One year ago---your check engine light came on
The PO405 code was for an EGR Valve issue
No mention--- if you had that fixed

A Few Days Ago---you get Trac Light on,that is part of
the ABS Braking System
Now that system has to be diagnosed & repaired,not just
continue to use the car,actually make the repair, before
you do some damage or can't stop the car & worse things happen

Changing Trans Fluid---is NOT a FIX for anything,but should
be done on all vehicles every 3 years.

If the Engine Management System isn't working correctly,then
your trans won't work as it should either

You need to be proactive & immediately have any abnormal
operation or check light problems, at least diagnosed in a few days
of noticing them

You need to stop using any car that isn't 100% & have it
repaired as soon as possible.

Not wait weeks or years.
Being 9 years old, the trans may also have it's own issues

What is D3 in autogear


it will be more noticeable at highway speeds if you use D3 as the transmission won't use the 4th and 5th gears. This will result in higher engine revving (watch the tach) and will use more gas. The car may feel like it's accelerating faster at these speeds, but at the same time, engine braking will slow it more when you take your foot off the gas.King Scanner G3 for Toyota Tis and Honda Him

D3 exists if you are going up (or down) a mountain and want the engine to be limited to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear rather than "searching" for the best of 3rd, 4th, and 5th frequently (although with the grade logic Honda employs this has never annoyed me). ymmv (your mountains may vary).

D3 Doesn't hurt anything; slightly more fuel consumption as the engine will rev higher, but better to be in "D" for normal driving and let the transmission use its full range of gears

Well, it seems like there is a problem with the shift return spring; it's on the backend of the gear, Seems broken or not attached properly, so first of all do this check.

My singer athena 2000 won't pull the bottom thread up to form a stitch. I know this is an OLD machine and I couldn't find the right selection from the list My Singer Athena 2000 sewing machine was...


I think if you watch the hook as you turn the wheel you will see that it is not moving.If it's not moving it can't pick up the thread or sew or wind the bobbin. If you really like this machine you can take it to a technician who is going to tell you you have a broken gear.Always have them replaced in pairs. On this machine there are 2 gears( 1 Pair) on the left and 2 gears( 1 Pair) on the right. If the machine is making buzzing noises, replace the machine instead of the gears. Singer makes a nice machine which sells for around $300 which will do more than the one you have and it is easier to use. Look at Model 7467. I sell quite a few of these and they don't give me or my customers problems.
