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

20332 recycler will not self propel. Brand new out of the box.

Check the drive belt from the pully around the shaft to the drive gear. It may be off the pully. Not a big deal just put it back on.

Toro 6.5 self propelled Mower - Self Propell won't engage

see if the lever going to the gearbox is cracked or broken. there is a gear inside the box that has a pin going thru the shaft that may have broken but usually it is external. these mowers have a plastic lever to put the transmission lever in gear if the cable is overtightened they wont hold up.if it cracks it leaves practially no tension on the engagment system

Self-propelled feature runs slow and won't pull as it should!

Check the belt tension. There is a spring that holds the tension and connects the gearbox to the mower deck. If it has slipped off the belt will not be tightened properly.
Hope this helps.

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
