This isn't a 'generic' problem; you have to include the make and model number of the mower. If you don't know where to find these, go to the mfr.'s website and you will most likely find instructions on where to look for it. There are simply too many different makes and models to give any kind of usable answer to your question.

Why won't my riding lawnmower shift into reverse?


Some mowers will not allow you to shift into reverse with the blades engaged for safety reasons. Try disengaging the blades then shift into reverse.

Lawnmower wheels won't drive


If its a riding mower it probably the drive belts off track or slung off. The mower will still start up and turn blades with the drive belt off, but want engage to go forward or reverse if this is the problem.

Blade engagement lever won't disengage


If this is a manual engagment system all the lever does is to pull a jockey wheel into the back of the belt to tention it thus starting the blades to turn, so either the cable is jammed that pulls the jockey wheel in, or the jockey wheel arm is seized and needs freeing off to allow the jockey to to move to the relaxed position.

2 things, one, the belt jumped track, broke, or melted in place, 2, the hydrostatic ****** is out of oil, you didn't say if it was hydro or not. I doubt that the gear box has gone bad, but I would put more blame on a belt or pulley. Check it out. Hope this helps.

Model RZT42. When you back up the blades shut and when I go back to forward, the blades will not engage.


Some of the newer riding mowers have a safety system on them that won't let the blades work while you are backing up. If the blades are engaged and you put it in reverse they will stop. You usually have to reset the blades, turn them off then back on, when you put it back in forward.

Cub cadet starts but won't move forward or reverse ? what should i try to do?


What model? I have a 1554, that I just took to the dealer, for repairs, for the same thing. The motor starts, the blades engage and cut, it just stopped moving forward, or reverse. If I remember, I'll get back on here and let you know, unless you already know?

When cutting with pto on and going into reverse and forward again the pto cuts off


That is a safety feature. When the blades are engaged and you go into reverse, they will shut off until you get out of reverse and turn the blades on again.

Will not go into gear


a hydro uses a foot pedal on the right side , you push forward to go forward or rock the pedal rearward to go in reverse - a regular transmission has a shifter usually between your legs for reverse 1st 2nd or 3rd gear - you also said the blades wont engage . are they electric ( with a switch ) or do you manually move a lever .
