My mower will not go forward or reverse won't go forward or backwards??.. what..??...HOW are you going to cut grass??.. cutting in one spot doesn't help much huh..??... Is this a riding mower?.. 0-radius turn?...
Seriously.. since we do not know what type of mower you have.. here goes: Take it to a qualified professional.

1. The drive chain is broken or come off the sprockets.
2. Your drive has failed.

Brand new Troy-Bilt XP Horse, model 13bx79kt011 - Won't Move

Confirm the park brake is off. If a hydro-static drive tractor starts but engagement of the operator controls for the transmission drive results in neither a forward or reverse drive of the mower itself, the operator should check that the manual bypass controls have not been left in the activated (bypass) position.

Look in to where the lever connects and confirm the movement. You should be able to hear the hydraulic oil with a slight whine as you activate the drive forward pedal!
See page 18 for bypass setting?

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse

I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

Hi.The mower works fine except it gets very slow and will completely stop moving when reversing up a slope. It is slightly slower in forward as well. The petrol engine is running properly, and all the...

Perhaps you are low on gas and because your tank is tilted as you wheel backwards up hill, the gas line is not getting what little gas is in the tank.

My riding mower stopped forward and reverse movement every once in a while..then it stopped completely. the engine is running fine and the throttle parts move when the pedal is pressed

Check the main drive belt. Without knowing your specific model and brand, its hard to be more detailed than that. Almost all riders have a main belt. When you look under your mower, there are usually two belts that come off of the drive shaft of the engine. One drives the mower deck and one drives the transmission for your mower. The way your mower "stopped forward and reverse movement every once in a while" tells me your belt developed a bad spot, then completely let go. Also, many mower companies host a website for their products. You can find your model's owners manuals, parts lists, and diagrams, to help you fix the mower yourself, which I highly recommend, if you are able. Shops in my area charge around $150.00 to $200.00 dollars to change a main belt.
