2010 Troy built 42 inch riding mower with auto transmission : mower has to have brake pedal depressed to start. It starts fine - let of the brake pedal and the motor stalls out . What is wrong ???

Most of these machines have similar saftey systems.

If you apply the parking brake the engine should continue to run.

If the brake is released and the operator is not in the drivers seat then the motor will stop.

If the operator is in the seat and the seat presence switch is working properly the motor will continue to run as the brake is released.

If the weight of the operator is low (skinny little kid) then the seat presence switch will not activate the motor will stop.

If the switch is defective no matter how heafty the operator is the motor will stop.

There are other components in the electrical system that the switch connects to that could also be the problem

Start with the switch

Hope this helps?

How to set and release the brake

You would depress the clutch/brake pedal all the way down and then pull or activate the brake engage lever or linkage. To release it normally all you have to do is fully depress the clutch/brake pedal and the linkage or lever will automatically disengage.

Lt130 aws is hard to steer

Yes they get that way after a few years. To get it to steer better again you need to take the spindles out of the axles and clean and grease them.

My lawn mower will start easily and continue running as long as the clutch brake is depressed but when I lift the clutch or try to engage the blades while the clutch is depressed the mower will stall.

This is a shot in the dark. I think you have a failed "operator presence safety switch". Rule this out by finding the switch and jumping it.

Your mower should run with no one in the seat IF THE PARKING BRAKE IS SET.

If the brake is released and no one is on it, it should shut off.

If you are on it and the brake is released you should be able to engage the blades (probably an electric clutch)

Purpose of this interlock is the shut the machine OFF should you fall off or jump off the machine. Do not disable this valuable safety feature.

Let me know what you find.

Thanks for your question @

Troy Bilt ride-on mower will not move in either fwd or reverse

Is the parking brake on? Or if it's a hydrostatic (automatic) there is a release lever to push the unit around when it isn't running. Most of those releases are on the back of the machine, and you just push it in for drive and pull it out to push.

Riding mower goes slow in forward speed

There is a variable speed pulley that is a double belt from engine to pulley and one from pulley to transaxle....remove both belts...pushing in the clutch will help with removal....remove o ring on top of pulley and pull up......the middle piece of metal is stuck....this piece is meant to slide up and down.....put the middle piece of metal on your pulley in your vice...wd40 the hell out of the shaft on pulley .....grasp the top with one hand and the bottom with your other the stuck pulley free.....put lithium grease on shaft...reinstall....done
