You can go to searspartsdirect.com and you can order a cable online. Or you will be able to get one from the parts department at your local sears. Best of luck.

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.

I have the Toro time master 30" self propelled. The self propel doesn't work. How do I fix it?


These are very expensive units, a little overpriced. If the self propelling system isn't working, see if the cable is actually disengaging the self propelling clutch, if it is and there is still no movement, the trans is shot and the way you fix that unfortunately is to buy a new transmission gear box. Save money and do it yourself if your kinda handy.... Go onto you tube, search for self propelling transmission replacement and you will have a few to choose from. If you are going to take it to a shop, be prepared to pass out when they give you the estimate for the parts and labor. Maybe you will get lucky and it's just the cable which is a very easy fix and the cable shouldn't run ya more than 20 to.25 bucks. BUT get a Toro part no aftermarket! !

What do I need to do next if the tension is gone on my craftsman self-propelled lawnmower.


The cable will need to be replaced. They tend to rust and become broken. The function of the cable is, it opens the kill switch and releases the engine break. Hopes this will help ya.

Self propel unit broken


This is a farily common repair on this model. What ends up happening is that when someone picks up the vacuum cleaner2_bing.gif by the handle of the machine, which on this model also is the controller for the self-propelled transmission, it places too much strain on the actuator arm of the vacuum2_bing.gif cleaner.

You can do the best to try and not pick up the machine by the handle, but instead using the carrying handle on the back of the vacuum cleaner, this is distribute the weight much better, and even make the machine seem less heavy, and this will also prevent the actuator arm from breaking again in the future.

Now for fixing your vacuum, Please click the link below for an excellent tutorial on how to replace this part;

Self propelled feature does not work. I replaced


There is a cable from the handle down to the transmission on this machine that breaks all the time or the cable is mounted to a plastic piece that is broken. That will need to be replaced.

Craftsman self propelled walk behind lawn mower sef propel handle will not engage..the wheels will turn if you hold the handle down but the handle won't lock in........is something broken in the gear box?


Normally grass and debris are clogged under the belt/transmission cover, preventing the full engagement of the transmission cable/lever.

The cover is located on the topside, left front corner of the mower shell. Clean debris, try it again. If OK, re-install cover, If not, there is a cable adjustment (threaded portion with a nut on either side of a fastening arm) move the cable adjustment towards the rear, this will tighten the cable. Sometimes the cable assembly (includes the cable and the control box) needs to be replaced

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.
