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.

My lawn mower starts and cuts fine, but it will no longer self propel even though the wheels actually turn when I lift the rear wheels off the ground.


Have you checked the belt? There is a belt that runs from the shaft to the transmission that gets worn and streched out. It will spin the tires, but not under a load. I'm sure thats the problem! The cover is usually located under the deck.

My lawn mower cranks fine and runs fine, however, the wheels will not self-propel, anymore. I'm not sure how old the mower is, as I purchased it used, but it worked properly for the first four or five...


First of all clean all the gunk from all the drive wheel areas and where the drive belt operates as well as the pulleys Check the belt as it could be broken or stretched. Maybe should replace the belt and lubricate all the working areas as well as wheels. Check the shear pin as well.

Front wheels lock up when pull mower backwards


Typically self-propelled mowers are propelled using the front wheels, which only turn forward. Pulling the mower back while the front wheels are turning will damage the drive gears. It's best to raise the front wheels slightly off the ground before pulling back.

Can't push my self propelled lawn mower!


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.
