Question about Garden
There is a problem with some types of belt driven self propelled mowers. One is grass clippings and dirt get clogged in there, dry out and act like plaster. But if yours is clear of debris...then what has probably happened is good old "stretching of the belt" even a tiny bit. And unfortunately all belts stretch eventually. If you do not see a obvious adjustment to increase the pully spacing then take a good look at the cable that you squeeze to make the mower move. Up by that "go" lever there is usually s small screw or an "adjuster nut" to tighten the cable up. (Cables stretch too! just like belts.) you should be able to adjust it at least twice before you'd have to get a new cable or belt. So place the belt back onto its pulleys, then (mower off!) pull the "Go" lever and watch the pulleys move. You'll get the idea immediately. So, if no adjustment at the pulleys, look to the cable adjustment up at the lever area. Let me know.
