    My brand new honda does this. Try engageing the blades with the choke on or put the lever in the cold start position and try the blades, If/when the blades come on line, put it in gear and mow.

Good advice from bbenson6 (above), and check this: The mower has a seat switch that kills the mower if the operator gets off the seat with the blaqdes engaged. A bad seat switch would kill your mower every time.

New yard man 21''-- mulching -- too much grass comes out left front wheel area and covers engine when cutting -- help...


Maybe try removing that blade and checking it/sharpening it. You could also install a new blade or a 21" mulching blade that is designed a little different, giving a different cutting process and results. When the grass comes out by the left front wheel, have you shut the mower down and checked for any kind of grass build up under the deck?

We have Toro Lwa 100 Lawn Mower Model #26623. Power engaged, start mowing but lawn mower will not cut grass. You have to stop and let it rev up again to cut more grass.


This 1991-92 model is equipped with a blade brake clutch. When the blade slows down this means the belt is slipping. This slipping can be caused from a few different things.
1 --A loose cable. barterjoe_0.gif
Try adjusting the blade cable on the upper handle. this unit has an adjustable section. make sure the cable is not so tight that you snap it.
2 --A sticky pivot point under the belt cover
The belt cover in the back builds up with dirt and debris. Make sude it is clean under the cover and all of the pivots move freely. ( do this with the engine off)
3 --A sticky belt tensioner under the deck cover
The underside of this machine has a metal cover to protect the belts. Remove it and check that the blade belt idler arm is not frozen in place. this will cause the belt not to enguage all the way.
4 --A worn belt or belt pulley
The large flywheel and pulley can wear. Check this if the belt looks good.
This is all there is to the machine BBC system.
I hope this helps.

Mower squeeking - mowing as usual, and it's squeeking, checked oil, it has oil in it, what else should I check, mower 1 year old, I've done minimal maintenance on it. and can't find my owners manual.


Does it squeek when at an idle, or when driving, or cutting? Does it cut fine? I would check the belts and pulleys and blades for extra play. I had a mandrel bearing go bad on my ys4500 (also about a year old) and the first symptom was a squeeling sound when the blades were enguaged. Play in the mandrel caused the belt to squeek at the pulley that turns the blade. It also cut some nice gouges in my yard due to a floppy blade. I hope that this helps, I got the answers to my problem here on fixya.com.

I believe that one can find a downloadable .pdf version of the owners manual with a quick google search.

good luck

Lots of smoke when I engaged stuck blades - now runs roughly


Most likely what you did was burn one or more spots on the belt. When the blades and belt stop turning, like in tall grass, the engine doesn't stop and will burn flat spots on the belt at the engine pulley. Every time the flat spot hits a pulley, it will jump and can set up a bad vibration. Run your hand around the sides of the belt or take it off and you will feel or see the thin spot(s) on it. Replace belt.

Craftsman 42" riding lawn mower blade free spinning but wont cut


It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps
