My MTD Yardman ride on mower seems to be stuck in gear, in that it wont move. Is there some way I can release it?

It would be very unusual to be stuck in gear, i think it more likly the brake is stuck or seized on, check the small disc brake on the side of the gearbox, the arm should have plenty of free play, if not adjust the nut on the outside anti clockwise, this should pull the pads away from the disc.

My 50" troy bilt zero

All riding mowers have a seat safety, blade engage safety and a brake clutch safety, some mowers have a reverse mowing safety. Seat under the seat, blade and brake you will have to check the linkages underneath, and if there is a reverse mowing one I have seen them near the shifter handle right under the fender.

I have a mtd riding mower that will not start and will not move just by depressing the do i move it

generally you are going to make sure the transmission is in neutral and the parking brake is not engaged. some have a parking brake, some don't. Those that do often have it as a tilt the clutch pedal forward when depressed engagement others have a specific lever or button. if you can not get the rear wheels to turn freely, you can put a floor jack under it and wheel it about with that.

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
