Question about Husqvarna Garden

1 Answer

Husqvarna 2754GLS, Hydrostatic forward/reverse pedal will not return to neutral position.

To return the pedal to neutral I have to push the reverse pedal when moving forward and forward when moving in reverse...I have the manual and it is not clear which spring(s) return the pedal to the neutral position.

    Return spring item # 161 is for the clutch....My clutch works fine...When I depress the forward hydrostatic pedal the machine drives forward but the machine will not slow down or stop when I release this pedal....I must press the reverse pedal to slow down and stop...I am unable to figure out which spring returns the pedal to neutral....It may be on or in the hydrostaic teansmission but i can not find the info to confirm this and how it can be repaired.

ENGINE NOT RUNNING,wheels blocked to prevent being run over, check the return spring ref # 161

Yes there is a safety switch.And this safety switch has to be engaged.If its not engaged then the JD tractor will not start. On JD 855 the safty switch is located under the seat, There is a rod that must be depressed before engage Somehow that rod is bent or its not pressing the switch to the point that the seat would not fully engage the safty switch.In some cases the switch itself is faulty.It has to be checked .

You may have a drive belt that is worn or broken. Check the drive belt for slack condition see if it is not slipped off idler pully wheels or the belt tensioner. I had one that was streched out and was very slack on the pully wheels - I had it replaced with new one and was fine to go. There is a device on the back of your tractor to release the transaxle for manual pushing your tractor about with out starting the engine. Make sure the device is positioned correctly for running mode (engine) - There is a symbol on the back to help you know what to do. The tractor manual has good trouble shooting info and if you don't have one, try googling for it with the model number of your tractor - you will be able to download one free to your computer for viewing it.

Good luck!

SOURCE: when i put mower in

yes

there is a adjustment under the r/h rear gaurd just under where the lever goes to hydro unit you should see a slot and a adjustment bolt arrangement

make sure you put the tractor in true nuetral 1st then undo the bolt that clamps lever to shift arm / shaft ( this connects to plate that operates swash plate on the pump ) and move the lever either fwd or back until (without moving transmission from true nuetral ) it fits into the nuetral slot correctly and tighten the adjustment bolt - test and adjust as nescesary

Husqvarna mower forward/reverse pedal is stuck in the forward position. Engine runs but transmission not engaging. Cause-probably pushing pedal forward when cruise was set. How can I get it unstuck?


If this model has the CVT transmission, you should check to make sure the CVT is cleaned in the area where the CVT unit connects to the trans. This model has been known to collect debris and cause this issue. If not a CVT, check you return spring on the pedal itself.

What oil goes in the transmission?hydrostatic #944.608860


Hello, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the trans-axle on this is a sealed unit and oil cannot be added. The only thing you can do is an air purge or replace the trans-axle.

Doing a purge is really easy:

  1. put transmission in the freewheel mode so you can push it, ensuring that it is on a flat surface
  2. start engine and run full throttle
  3. release clutch brake
  4. push the drive pedal or lever to the full forward position for a ten count
  5. push the drive pedal or lever to the full reverse position for a ten count
  6. repeat steps 4 & 5 three times
  7. depress & lock the clutch brake
  8. return the transmission to the normal mode
  9. drive tractor
If this fails to correct the problem you may need to replace the transaxle.

If you find this helpful please vote yes. Thank You!!

You didn't specify a brand or type but it sounds like a hydrostatic drive model and if so, it is 1 of 4 likely things

Drive belt from engine to transaxle slipping badly (replace the belt)
FWD-REV pedal linkage faulty
Transaxle is broken or has fluid issues (not user fixable)
by-pass rod (neutral lever/rod) is pulled out a bit. (push it in fully!)

Stick shift


Hi:
The shift pattern is pretty much the same on all 5 speed cars. The top row is the odd numbers, 1-3-5
the bottom row is 2-4-Reverse. The center position is neutral

Here is the key: The shifter is slightly spring-loaded to the center position. If you hold in the clutch pedal and pull the shifter to neutral, and let go of it, it will automatically be lined up in the position, that if you pushed it forward , it would go to 3rd gear, and if you pulled it back, it would go into 4th gear.
This way, to start driving, you start out in neutral, grab the shifter lightly, and push it first to the left, then forward. This is first gear, where you start out. when you want to shift to second, push in the clutch, and keeping left pressure on the shifter, pull all the way back . Here is the easy part, 2nd to 3rd. When you are ready, push in the clutch, and just push the gear shift forward , till it hits neutral, and is spring loaded to the middle. Then you just push it straight forward to 3rd, then next shift, straight back to 4th.
Last gear, 5th: push forward to the neutral row, then Push to the right till it lines up ,and forward to the 5th gear. Reverse should only be shifted into from a dead stop. Find neutral, push the shifter all the way right, then pull back towards you. Hope this helps.
Practice a bunch in the driveway!

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.
