Question about Troy Garden
Initially, while mowing the grass we heard a snap. The lawnmower self propeled wheels stopped working. We attempted to take off the belt to see if that was the problem. Now the lawn mower will not start after putting back together. We notice that there is now slack in the contol cable. Can anyone help us get this back together. We did order a new variable speed cable, but have no idea how we are going to replace this.

belts usually come off for a few reasons.
They become loose...stretch or the tensioner moves, Make sure that none of the tightening bolds are slipping. You can dab them with a bit of paint.
when the pulleys are not in alignment or crooked or bent. Eyeball the path from one pulley to another, also make sure the tensioner is in alignment and there are no other obstructions.
good, high quality belts are required, and they must be real drive belts...not regular v belts. If there is a way to watch the belt in operation you can usually see what's going wrong.
On my lawnmower I had to grind some metal away where the belt went from the motor to the transmission. Good luck

Cable could be stretched belt could be worn or old, if it has a gear box maybe it slipped a gear or lost some teeth. Do some investigation, Good Luck

I had the same problem with my Troy-Bilt self propelled lawn mower. You have to use the grass catcher if your grass is high. Also, I mowed wet grass and it made my belt slip off the pulley and created a new problem, somowing wet grass is definitely not a good idea.
