Check to see if all of the belts are in-tact. A belt may have become stressed and out of proportion from sitting for such a long time.

SOURCE: Craftsman riding mower won't move.

yes it is a bad belt unless it is a hydro-stat(no clutch) you need to look under the mower and see if the belt is on correctly

SOURCE: My craftsman 15.5HP kohler riding mower turns over

Try cleaning or better yet, replacing the spark plug. Depending on age and how your tractor was maintained, there are other possible causes.

  • Gummed up fuel system
  • dirty fuel filter
  • defective or misaligned armature/magneto (part that causes your plug to spark, igniting the air/fuel mixture, thus starting the engine)
  • throttle linkage/cable problems
  • low oil level. Some Kohler engines use a low oil shut down sensor which won't allow the engine to run or start to avoid internal damage.
  • Mechanical engine problems
I hope you find this solution helpful. Please rate it thanks for using Fixya!

Hi Jerry:
My Craftsman ride on Mower does not have "gears" as such.
There are separate forward and reverse pedals.
Can you give us a model number for your machine?

I have a craftsman 54 riding mower . It will start but won't go forward or reverse.


Check the lock out lever on the back of the mower. Has someone pulled it out? If so, push it back in and you'll have both forward and reverse then.

Yardman riding mower no reverse forward jerking motion


It sounds like you either have a lose belt that is slipping or the fluid in the transaxle is low, or the transaxle is going bad, if it is a hydrostatic transaxle, drain and replace the fluid first, if that fails, you may have a bad seal in the pump or a worn gear

Mower slips in and out of forward gear but rides perfect in reverse;What do I need to adjust?


Reverse is a different gear set than forward gears. Sounds like forward gear set has a broken tooth. Not an easy fix.

My craftsman riding mower is a hydrostatic and i parked it a week ago and went to use it today and it will not go forward or reverse


My craftsman riding mower has a lever on the rearend witch on occassion pops out of place and I have to reset it. The lever is on the back just above the little trailer hitch. It is there to put your rear end in neautral in case you need to push it. On mine you have to pull it to put it in neautral and push it in to put it back in gear, it varys from model to model though.

I had the same problem so I looked under the mower and the belt that goes from the engine to the back of the mower was off so I pushed the clutch as far forward as I could and the belt went on it and it worked
