Question about Arnold Corporation Arnold/MTD 22" Lawn Mower Blade #742-0125 #MTD-22

1 Answer

I have an MTD 22'' self-propelled mower that is belt driven... the belt appears to be ok and in place but when I engage the propel blade, the front wheels don't pull as fast as they used to. I have to push much harder with the propel blade engage. What else should I be looking at?

Remove the drive wheels and check the gears inside, they could be worn and need renewing.

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.

Self propelled feature stopped functining. I previously replaced the wheels after the gears had worn down. Now I can't get any response to engaging the self-propelled cable.


Have you checked the drive belt? There should be a belt running from the main shaft (above blade) out to the wheel drive. You didn't list model number but I'm assuming it's front wheel drive. There should be a cover over this belt so it might be hard to see from underneath. Also there should be a cover on top going to the drive transmission. If the belt is OK, check to be sure lever is moving the transmission lever.

Need instructions how to install belt on self propelled craftsman push mower


raise the front of your mower up and support it with something safe like a jack stand
take the blade off
when your blade is off locate the plastic cover covering the belt and remove
now remove the belt but first remove the plastic cover on top of the mower to uncover the gearbox that turns the wheels your belt goes from the engine pulley to the gearbox pulley
you will have to work the belt off the pulley while turning the motor by hand or the same when installing the belt.
to install belt reverse the procedure.
hope this helps some

Self propel won't allow the mower to back up freely. works fine moving forward.


either the wire going to the transmission is not tight enough and need adjustment or belt needs replaceing
