Can't push my self propelled lawn mower!

I have a Craftman rotary lawn mower 675 series ,which is very hard to push .Changed the belt and that didn't fix the problem. Someone said I needed a new transmission

    Once you fire it up, will it move when the drive is engaged? If it does then it's not the transmission. However, when it comes to pushing it, does it have freewheel capability, because some doesn't. It needs to be running before it'll transport.

Remove the drive wheels and have a look at the gear teeth in them. If even slightly worn, they need replacing. If you run the mower with the wheels off, that end elevated with a block, see if the axle turns when you engage the drive. If it does, your transmission is fine. Wheels are a lot easier to change than a tranny.

What kind of battery does it take


Mowers don't typically take batteries. Possibly riding mowers might, but not push/self propelled mowers. They run off a spark plug and gas and that's it.

I HAVE A CRAFTMAN LAWN MOWER 6 HP SELF PROP RUN FOR 2 OR 3 MINUTES ONLY I CHANGE THE OIL GASOLINE AND S/PLUG CAN YOU HELP ME TO FIX IT?


It sounds like you have a bad Ignition Coil (Module). This is how they act when they start going bad. When they get warm, they quit. Some will last up to 20 minutes before they shut down. You can sometimes find a used one pretty cheap at a small engine shop.
