SOURCE: toro self propelled mower will not move

This is a very simple solution, When you pull the lever it simply pushes a pulley into the belt to make it tight. Most of the time the belt has come off or maybe the cable broke. Turn the mower over and you will see the belt. My money is on the belt off.

SOURCE: toro 20016 self propel

If you take the wheels off and remove the belt from the small pulley on the the front axle underneath the pulley you should see a small transmission. You usually can split this unit in half . You will see two gears and sometimes one plastic and one metal. The plastic one is usually the culprit. Hope this will help you out. Donnyb60

SOURCE: Toro Personal Pace self propel problem.

Your self-propel is probably belt driven. Belts can make an awfully lot of noise when unhappy. Possible it has rolled over and is running on the wrong side of the belt or is worn and just needs replaced. Hope this helps.,

Toro 20333 self propel. Doesn't engage. l


Is the tension spring gone? How is the cable? Usually there is a spring at the end of the cable in which when you pull back on the bar with your hands, this tightens the belt so that it engages with the engine allowing the wheels to turn.

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.

My toro self propelled isn't self propelling


It may just be a matter of adjusting the cable. Sometimes they dont get them adjusted just right from the factory,heres what you do. Locate the plastic shroud in front of the push mower that covers the drive unit.Determine which screwdriver or torx bit is needed to remove shroud and remove it. After removal you will see a pulley with belt around it, as you pull the handle back to engage self propel you should see the pulley move into the belt to put tension on the belt. You can do this with it running to see if enough tension is being put on the belt,if not, locate the cable end where the small bracket holds the cable in place. Loosen the cable bracket and move cable until you have correct tension again,hope this helps.

Front ppropelled mower


You dont adjust the belt,you adjust the cable that moves the pulley into the belt. There will be a small single bracket close to the engine side of the mower that holds the cable in place. Simply loosen bracket and move cable until pulley contacts belt enough to engage self propel.

Self propel always engaged


you may have lost the spring that pulls the transmission drive belt down or have the cable adjuster too tight.word of caution here, the cable goes thru the engagement lever and if you overtighten it the lever will crack or break. if it does the complete transmission will have to be replaced.seems they dont make the lever avalible seperate.
