Does it crank over at all? I would look at all the fuses, and check the wiring going from the battery to the starter. Also check the key switch for corrosion.

During mowing I smelled burn rubber like the belts were bad, then the riding mower would not go in forward or reverse. I do not know what is wrong. Little help please.


it sounds like a drive belt to me. there is another belt above the deck belt that runs to the transmission. it could of died of old age but it was rubbing on something when it gave up.
did it leave a trail of parts? look for a broken belt on the top of the transmission/axel.
good luck/
