MTD yard machine model 668 (46in) does not engage

MTD yard model 668 (46in) only moves in hi (5/6) gear. Unit can not be pushed or moved in neutral either. Belts are intact, runs fine otherwise. Any suggestions?

Check your brake pins on the trany there rusted and sticking. you can also shoot some wd-40 and hit your bake pedal till ti comes loss. now if you still can't use low dear check your variable speed pulley assay. may need to be replaced or rusted too. check for missing spring too. adjustment may be needed

I have a snow blower which will start up but it won't move forward in the snow nor will it push the snow. Not sure what is wrong. I can manually move the blade around that pushes the snow.


If you start the machine and the axles spin but the augers do not it is because the shear pins are broke. If you look closely you will see the the augers have shear bolts and nuts or shear pins. If you jam a piece of ice or a stick in the augers while they are spinning the bolts will shear so you do not damage the expensive augers or the worm drive gears. If the axle spins with the augers you may have torn up the front worm gear in the front of the auger intake. If you spin the small auger and the large auger moves but when you start and engage the auger nothing happens you will have to remove the under cover and inspect the drive belt pulleys for jammed or broken parts or more commonly broken drive belts.

Thee is no serial or model no. plate on my mtd yard machine tiller. I need a diagram of the gear mechanism, when I split it apart all the gears a nd chain fell out.


Had the same problem with my MTD Yard Machines 5 horse tiller. I called MTD at 800-800-7310 and with the model and serial and such off the engine - which are stamped into it - a nice lady was able to narrow down my tiller year. From there with horsepower details she narrowed further to one of two models that I could look up on the MTD corporate home page and get a schematic.
Hope that helps.

My Yardsman Snowthrower will not move when it is put in gear.


My old machine just did the same thing. When I lift the unit off the wheels with the gear engaged the wheels move. when I put it down the machine doesn't move. This happened while I was using the machine. BTW the machine is 20 years old.

My 2000 / 2001 17HP Yard Machine won't start. Battery and plug OK


It could be a burned fuse!
Locate the wiring harness at the back of the ignition switch and follow it until you locate the in-line fuse. Remove the fuse and check it. It should be a 20 amp fuse.

Yard Machines - Won't shift into gear


The problem most likely is the shaft on which the interlock slides back and forth on inside the transmission. The yardmachines have a continous spinning shaft which ends in a bevel gear. The is an interlock plate which is connected to the Forward Reverse shift lever, this plate slides back and forth and either engages the forward gear or the backward gear. This shaft is most likely galled up, preventing everything from sliding the way it needs to. This is not a difficult thing to fix if you are somewhat mechanical. Disassemble the transmission and check if everything slides
