Unfortunately, you cannot adjust it. If you have an extra space to move it lower than it was on the handle you can do that. You might have to get a new cable. Or the belt may need to be replaced. Do you hear a grinding noise when you try to engage the self propel? If so the transmission may have gone out. The most common problem is that the belt has jumped off from where it needs to be and it is no longer turning. To check to see if the belt is off, you will need to put the mower on its' side, the side with the oil level check is the correct one. You will need to loosen the cover over the drive belt. This is done by loosening one or two bolts that hold it in place.The bolts should have 3/8 hex heads. You may have to maneuver the cover a bit to see if the belt is in place. If the belt has jumped above the pulley for the self propel then you will have to install a new belt.

What would cause a troybilt self propelled mower 12a-466m011front wheels to lock up when pulling back? Also why would this continue when mower is off?


There could be several things. Have you recently changed the belt? Was it an OEM belt? i have seen loose trannys cock in such a way as to put the belt in a bind and not let it slip when reversing. More likely is that there are dogs on the wheels and one or both aren\'t releasing.

I'd love to help you, but I think you need to rephrase your question. There is no "Starter Cable" on this mower. Sorry.

Troy Bilt 33'' Replaced the self propel v belt and now the mower will not disengage from drive mode, also very hard to shift gears


If you didn't by the Troybilt belt, try that. I had the same problem with a Napa belt. Going into drive as soon as I grabbed the operator presence button, not coming out of gear etc. When I switched the the Troybilt belt, the problem went away.

Check to see of where the canles connect to the linkage, there are usually thumb nuts you can adjust similiar to that of the brakes on a bicycle handle bar.
