Check the cable for the speed control handle.... at the top of the handle bars, there should be an Adjuster (or possibly half way through the cable) which you can use to remove the "slack" due to the cable stretching. Keep adjusting until speed control is resumed but not to much or the machine may drive all of the time.

Can I control speed of self propelled mower ?


most self propelled mowers should have a variable speed. the more you squeeze the handle the faster it will go. it is on a spring lever. as some people cant walk as fast as others. some just kick in at a set speed.

How do I fix the speed control on an Ariens walk behind lawn mower?


do you mean the throttle cable? as its a push mower im gussing it is. If the mower is relatively new then it will be fitted with an opc (or dead mans handle) in which case there is no need for a throttle control as the engine speed is governed and should only be used at the fixed goverened speed

How can I slow down the speed at wich u can walk with the machine it is a propelled mower. Thanks


If the mower motor speed cannot be controlled, then you cannot control the walking speed.

And most transmissions are directly connected to the motor pulley so that if you slow down down the mower's motor, you also slow down the blade speed and cutting power.

How do adjust for Speed stability on Lawn-Boy mower. It hunts up and down.


Speed control for motor is controlled by an automatic governor, so there isn't any adjustments. Surging is caused by an air leak. Has the air filter been changed? Spray card cleaner around that side of the engine to find the air leak. Does it have a choke adjustment? Make and model would be handy in answering this question!

John deere instructions


Your mower doesn't have enough power to handle very thick grass at high speed. You need to go slower across the lawn. That's easy to do if this is a push mower (just don't walk so fast) or if it's a self-propelled model with a speed control. But if it's a single-speed model you'll have to mow the lawn in fits and starts: squeeze the lever to move it forward; release it when you hear it bogging down; wait for the motor to reach full speed; squeeze the lever to move it forward again; repeat. Also, is the grass very high? If so, try setting the cutting height higher on the first pass, then lower it for a second pass. Finally, make sure the blade is sharp.

My lawnboy starts but will not shut off. I replaced the coil recently and believe the woring is messed up. Does anyone have the correct wiring diagram for the engine shut off switch?


there should only be one wire to the coil. it plugs into a spade terminal and runs to a kill switch which is usually a piece of metal that comes in contact with a part of the throttle so when you either move the speed control to slow/stop or release the handle the two parts touch and ground out the module

My mtd tradesman lawn mower does not run smooth. where is the idle mixture adj. screw? the engine is the tecumseh 5.5 hp model #VLV55 501029A(D)


The newer machines do not have a way for you to adjust the Idle, what you can do is change the spark plug or spray some carb cleaner or remove the air filter and run it for a few minutes without the air filter and see what happens
