SOURCE: replace drive belt on John

Remove the black plastic cover at the rear of the mower. Here you will find the belt and transmission/pulleys. Remove the cutting blade, (please render the mower unable to start buy removing the spark plug). The belt will pull over the blade shaft and run to the trans. pulley. re-assemble and go cut some grass. But wait until its cooler outside. Hope this helps Fix ya up.

Selfpropelled portion stopped working, replaced broken belt,have correct p/n for new belt,belt is slack ,self propelled not working


There should be 3 pulleys one on the motor on top of the blade, one on the axle for the wheels and one that goes to your cable to engage that pully and tighten the belt, take the cover off that hides the axle and pull your handle for the self propell and see if its tighting, some mowers have a little adjuster to tighten the cable on the self propell handle or even on the cable itself, did you make sure to run the belt between the guides over the blade, let me know what you find so we can further help

Why does a transmission on a self propelled john deere 14SZ mower ,18yr old, squeal?


Is it the transmission or is it the drive belt slipping.
That will make a squealing noise as well.
Is the fluid up where it should be?

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.

Hi, I have a JS63C self propelled push mower that is having trouble with the self proppelled device. At the first speed 1 you can feel some self propell. However, if you advance to speed 2 or speed 3 you...


Hi Jerry. Sounds like your transmission cable needs to be adjusted. Since 1st gear is easiest for it to move in, you probably have little pressure on the clutch. Take the cover off the back of the mower (Torx T25 or T30 can't remember at the moment.) The spring on the cable should be measured when relaxed (handle not being held) then when you squeeze the S/P handle, it should stretch the spring 10mm. A friend or a clamp will make holding the handle and measuring more simple. Adjust the bracket the cable clips into in front of the tranny to obtain the desired 10mm, and you should be under power again.

Limited self propell


The self propel cable needs to be adjusted. This can be done with a 7/16 wrench. loosen the nut that holds the self propel cable in place. You may need to pry this open with a screwdriver. Don't overdo it or you could break the plastic. Once the cable is loose pull it toward the mower deck, once the slack is out of the cable press the self propel handle in about a half of an inch. This should be close to what it was from the factory. Then re tighten the nut. And check the self propel to make sure it is engaging properly. If you hear a grinding noise when trying to engage the transmission then you will need a new transmission. Depending on if it is a front or rear self propel the part alone is either $60-$75 retail. Most repair shops will charge an hour to do this repair. I hope this answers your question.
