Sounds like the belt going to the hydrostate broke. Or a key on one of the pulleys broke. The belt runs inside of the frame and is hard to see.

I have a yard master riding mower. It's got a new carb, does fine in reverse. When I put it into forward, it dies after about 20 seconds & backfires. Spark plug is fine, cleaned out exhaust. HELP!


if it runs fine in reverse , there is no problems with the motor
when you put in forward check for wires shorting out , faulty switches , safety switches gear change switches or wires that are tangling somewhere
the backfiring is from an uncontrolled circuit for the coil , something continually switch it on and off when it is running

Brand new Troy-Bilt XP Horse, model 13bx79kt011 - Won't Move


Confirm the park brake is off. If a hydro-static drive tractor starts but engagement of the operator controls for the transmission drive results in neither a forward or reverse drive of the mower itself, the operator should check that the manual bypass controls have not been left in the activated (bypass) position.

Look in to where the lever connects and confirm the movement. You should be able to hear the hydraulic oil with a slight whine as you activate the drive forward pedal!
See page 18 for bypass setting?

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

I have a Teac A-6300 that won't go fast forward or reverse but the capstan motor is running


The Capstan motor is just for the play speed regulation so it has nothing to do with the reel motors. You can have an open safety microswitch or maybe a bad relay. It is really hard to say without looking at the unit but I am sure it is repairable. Is the right dummy plug put in the back? This can stop all transport functions if it is out.
