Make sure you are fully engaging your clutch. If you are, then the shift linkage needs to be adjusted.

Why won't my riding lawnmower shift into reverse?


Some mowers will not allow you to shift into reverse with the blades engaged for safety reasons. Try disengaging the blades then shift into reverse.

I have a Craftsman LT1000 Riding Lawn Mower, Model # 917.271645. My problem is that even with the Gear Shift Rod sitting in the Neutral position within the Shift Console, I still have trouble...


There is a neutral safety switch, also known as an interlock switch. Check the switch mount and be sure it has not come loose from it's mounting location. If the engine does start from time to time, it most likely has become loose or has a loose connection at the connection. Let me know what you find.

Craftsman 42 in 19.5 unable to control speed forward motion


is this perhaps a hydro trans? if so, try putting the shift lever in neutral, then let off the brake pedal, use the shift lever to go forward and to neutral to stop - same with reverse, don't even use the brake pedal except for emergency stops. if it's a manual shift, it's possible the belt is incorrect, and/or the belt guides are bent or the belt is improperly routed - the belt guides are important as they allow the belt to "blossom" off the engine pulley, reducing the "shock" load when engaged - hope this helps
