    Which model mower is it? You may have the nuts too tight which is binding the wheels...give me the model number so I can get more in-depth.

Take cover off the top off deck and see if your belt have came off next turn deck sideways but before you turn it sideways take air filter off cause oil can come through and ruin the filter noe look and make sure the belt is on the pully

I have a Craftsman front wheel self propelled mower. The front wheels no longer turn either in self-propel or in manual push mode. What can be done to fix this?


Take a good look at the wheel assembly. Is it rusted on from being left exposed to the elements? Remove the cover for the self propelled mechanism. Is the drive belt intact? Try turning the small pulley.

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

Self-propelling action on 917.378771 not working


This type of mower uses a gear box driven by a v-belt. First check the v-belt. Is it in place and does it turn when the drive is engaged. You can also check the drive pinions in the wheels. These can wear out or "chew up" the insides of the drive wheels. I doubt it is the transmission, these are tough little units on this mower.

How do you remove the driven wheels on a craftsman self propelled mower


On mine (front-wheel drive, about 8 years old) you first remove the plastic hubcap from the front wheel - then there's a big nut holding the wheel on. The hubcap just pops right off. I used a skinny, regular screwdriver to do it.
