You probably have a belt driven system and the belt is either loose or worn. Check your belt tension and adjust, if no adjustment is left replace the belt.

Self propelled lawn mower makes whinning noise


disconnect the spark plug turn the mower on its side and inspect the drive belt on the pulley above the blade (on the crankshaft) it may have a shroud over it. Also there is a small gear case that maybe dry that the belt drives, that goes to the wheels, Also try lifting the drive wheels up off the ground and engage them and see if it still does it. if it stops once lifted it might be the bushings on the axle its self.

Self propell not working right


Leave aside all the puffery about 3-1 and such, you described a front wheel drive (pull) walk-behind (FWD), but are asking why the rear wheels won't propel. When you push down the hand grip the front wheels should spin free. Whan you lower from wheels by releasing pressure on hand grips, turning wheels lowered to ground should propel the mower along with its unpowered rear wheels now turning be ground contact. Reminder, never, ever lift rear drive wheels of any mower off the ground while walking behind with engine running:
  1. You could be struck by blade propelled object.
  2. You could pull mower and spinning blade backward onto your feet.
  3. You could lose balance and be pulled forward in a fall.
Contemporary FWD mowers are recognized by a black chain housing on deck top leading from engine to left front of deck. RWD propelling chains are situated underneath deck so cannot be seen from above.

I have a Honda HRR2165VXA mower that is having issues with the smart drive.


hello, hello, Drive belt replacement for front drive mowers. remove the belt coved on top of deckand clean out grass,turn mower on side where carb is facing up,use a pair of vice grips on side of mower deck so the blade can stop,remove the blade,remove the belt cover and clean out the grass,remove belt from rear and front pulley pulleys. install new belt,put belt cover and blade back on,put front belt cover on, should work,if that is not the problem; wheels will not prepeal the mower,wheels turn only when raised off ground, Check the gears or groves on the inside of the wheel for access wear that is a common problem,check the axle drive gears to make sure turns ok, to check gear box if ok pull mower back wards while drive is engaged,if wheels turn backwards than the trams is bad,all of this is caused by the operator,by not disengaging drive while pulling mower backwards or by holding mower back not allowing to propel self completely,hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you.

My toro 20016 self propel is only turning the right wheel


Remove the left wheel and check the gears inside the wheel and the drive sheft. They might be worn or sheared and need renewing or maybe they just need oiling. Spray them with WD 40.

Front wheels lock up when pull mower backwards


Typically self-propelled mowers are propelled using the front wheels, which only turn forward. Pulling the mower back while the front wheels are turning will damage the drive gears. It's best to raise the front wheels slightly off the ground before pulling back.
