SOURCE: no spark

After seeing what you and other ASK type web sites charged to answer my question, i called the dealer he answered the question for me. i ordered the part online and repaired it myself.

My advise before you pay anyone to answer your question try calling a local repair center, i found they were willing to answer my questions without a CHARGE

Check and see if the belt for the drive wheels is still on the pulleys.

You have to take off a part behind the gears and move it to a slot farther away. Mine was the same way. It's in the manual on how to adjust the speed to go faster.

SOURCE: Craftsman self propelled lawn mower will not propell

Take off the cover up front on the self propel. Engage the self propel and make sure your cable is not broken. If that is ok then remove the wheels and inspect the molded cogs on the inside of the wheels and make sure they are not stripped out. If they are stripped go to www.sears.com and on the tool bar click on parts direct. Under model number enter yours and it will take you to a parts diagram. Get the part number for the wheels and go to local small engine parts dealer and get new. You can also do a search on the web for the wheels and maybe get them cheaper.

Good luck and let me know if this helps or you need any more help.

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

Lawnboy 10665 won't self-propel and impossible to push


If you have the smell of rubber burning the belt isn't gripping. Make sure that there isn't anything stopping the wheels turning like old grass or even a piece of twig. If their clear try adjusting the tension on the drive pully.

Where is drain plug for oil on Troy bilt Tb230


It does not have a drain plug. You can remove the dip stick and tilt the mower to pour out the oil, or you can use one of those hand pump syphon units to pump it out.

I can push the handle all the way in, but I get very little speed from the mower.


Your throttle cable likely needs adjusting.
It should be fastened on the engine with a screw. Loosen that screw and adjust while engine is running then tighten Keep fingers away from underneath while engine is running.

Rerunning the belt on an o6 self-propelled Lawnboy


You may have to loosen the adjustment a bit to let the transmission tilt farther forward. Do not loosen the other nut on the adjustment, that way you will know how far to re-tighten the one you loosened when you have the belt on.
