My craftsman riding mower has a lever on the rearend witch on occassion pops out of place and I have to reset it. The lever is on the back just above the little trailer hitch. It is there to put your rear end in neautral in case you need to push it. On mine you have to pull it to put it in neautral and push it in to put it back in gear, it varys from model to model though.

more than likely your low on transmission fluid. I heard alot of this pertaining to hydrostatic transmissions on yards with inclines. I would check your fluid level .

Riding mower no longer moves.


If this is a hydrostatic transmission, one of 3 things:
1. Drive belt off pulleys (recommend replace belt if so)
2. Belt broken (obviously, replace)
3. Hydrostatic transmission failed (least likely, but this is an expensive repair shop issue if so)


This happened to my GT1554 two weeks ago - fortunately, replacing the belt resolve the problem.

I have a 2008 John Deer X300 riding mower. I parked it and when I went to use it the next day would not move forward or backwards. It is hydrostatic. What could it be? How do I check fluid for hydrostatic?


Sounds to me like your hydrostatic control lever has became disengaged. If you had a fluid problem yuou would probably find fluid on the ground or within the tractor chasis somewhere. I,d check the linkages for your problem. Also make sure your parking brake is released.

Wont move forward or reverse-- transmission??


Does it have gears or a hydrostatic (automatic) transmission?

If it's a gear model, sounds like a loose drive belt.

If it's hydrostatic, it could be a belt problem or a problem inside the transmission. If it's a tranmission problem, this is not good. Many of the transmissions on riding lawn mowers are not serviceable - they are just replaced.

Craftsman hydrostatic strains but won't go forward or reverse


Hi,
There is a brake lever attached to your transaxle, that when activated, pushes dowel pins which serve as brake pistons, against a brake pad which presses against a disk from your transaxle...whew. Much like a disk break on your car.
The pistons, or dowel pins may be sticking, causing you to be "riding your brake". A little disassembly and some good ole WD-40 might loosen up the bind.
Good luck!

In the back of the mower...probably under the seat, there should be a lever to release the transmission, or it is on the back plate. As far as the noise when trying to move drive the mower, the brake in the back, next to the transmission is jammed, use a 1/2 inch wrench to loosen it maybe 1/4 turn and this should unlock the brakes

Lawnmower will not move in gear with motor running


Hi
Check to see if any oil leaks between rear wheels where the tractor was parked. Also make sure hydrostatic disengage lever, at rear of tractor by hitch, has to be pushed in.
