If the engine is running well you either have a loose drive belt or the transmission is on its last legs.

How can I slow down the speed at wich u can walk with the machine it is a propelled mower. Thanks


If the mower motor speed cannot be controlled, then you cannot control the walking speed.

And most transmissions are directly connected to the motor pulley so that if you slow down down the mower's motor, you also slow down the blade speed and cutting power.

Craftsman Riding Mower (24 HP 42 in cut Model 289254) with throttle issue. Very slow in 6th gear


follow the throttle cable all the way down to the engine. Have some one move the throttle up and down to see if the throttle plate is opening and closing all the way. You can loosen the screw holding the throttle cable and move it back and forth to see if it will allow the throttle plate to open and close correctly. It may have slipped when the assembler tried to tighten it.

I had the same symptoms, after bumping the corner of my house - slow drive speed, actually slow rotation of engine. Tried cleaning air filter, replacing drive belt, spark plug; no difference. Took to JD today figuring it was the carb. They went to a piece of the linkage under the shroud ahead of the air filter; a piece must have been bent. I did not see closely enough to know exactly what, but perhaps it will be evident upon inspection.
