Why won't my mower go in reverse on the left side?
First, make sure the steer stick in moving the lever into reverse. Please check this with the engine off
Second, Check the belt tensioner. Sometimes they end up stuck which has been known to cause the belt to slip on the left transaxle only.
Third, buy a new transaxle...

Sometimes on the Briggs and Kohler engines, the compression release fails to operate at the proper time or is malfunctioning. A remedy for this is to remove the valve cover(s) and adjust the OH valves per the manufacturers specifications. This enables much easier starting, produces less wear and tear on the starter and may allow your new battery to completely turn that engine over. Out of adjustment valves mimic a weak or failing battery quite well and the engine hangs up on the compression stroke because the compression release system is not working properly. Adjust those darn valves.

The stick probably pushed the motor speed control and slowed it down. The clamp which holds the cable can let the cable slip if it's pushed enough. You can loosen the screw on the clamp and reposition the cable to match the control on the handle control.

well there could be a number of problems the 2 things i would do is clean out the bowl and clean the jets on the carb clean the bowl first and if that does not work clean the jets before u do that make sure to shut the gas off to clean the bowl u have to unscrew the one bolt on the bottom of the bowl then take electric parts cleaner or starter fluid and spray the whole bowl with it then put it back together the way it came off then turn the gas on and try it if it still wont start turn the gas off take the carb off and the little screws on the carb turn them in and count how many times they went in then remember that number. unscrew the screws and spray some starter fluid or parts cleaner in there and screw the screw in all the way then unscrew the screw how many turns u remembered and do the other ones then turn the gas on if it still does not start take out the spark plug get a lighter or a propane torch an get the oil and **** out of the tip of it be careful don't touch it it will be hot let it cool down then put it back in and try again GOOD LUCK!

First check to see if you have any leaks especially on the problem let side. This includes the wheel motor. where hydro oil comes out, air can go in. either way it sounds like you need to take your pump out and open it up and check for metal inside. If you do not have any metal inside check the 5 pistons to see if they are stuck. What series hydro pump do you have?
10L 10A etc.

Testimonial: "Thank You very much for your support on this matter. "
SOURCE: Slow speed on one side.
Check to be sure there is not a lot of grass and debris packed in spaces that prevent proper movement of the control arms.
If the control arms have free range of motion then you will need to check your fluid level and purge the pumps.
To purge the pumps jack the unit up and place on jack stands so that the drive wheels are off the ground. Release the transmissions so that they are in freewheel. Start the unit, release the brake and work the control levers slowly to full forward then full reverse 6 times. Shut the motor off, lock the transmissions back into drive. Start the unit and work the control levers back and forth 6 times again. Take down off the jacks and check fluid level. If there were any air pockets in the pumps this procedure would have purged the air out.
