The reasons why mower is not moving forward or reverse is that the battery is dead, or due to clogged fuel line. Additionally, malfunctioning transmission, or a broken drive belt, also a faulty spark plug, even when friction wheel isn`t in contact with the friction plate, or damaged Tires.
If your riding lawn mower won`t move, the problem could be a broken ground drive belt. If the riding mower is slow and sluggish, the ground drive belt could be so worn that it slips.
On most larger commercial engines (27 hp and up). The 25 amp main fuse is located about 3” from the starter on the engine. On smaller commercial and light duty commercial mowers, the 25 amp main fuse is located just behind the battery connected to the starter solinoid.
Failure of any mechanical component, a broken hose, or clogged filter will cause tractor hydrostatic transmission problems. But the most common issue will be the oil itself. In the transmission section of your operator`s manual, you`ll find a section that covers oil viscosity.

The engine stops after a half hour of mowing and will not start until it cools down, after which the cycle repeats itself
Usually when a mower gets hot, then will not start again, it is a spark issue. The Magneto or coil is going bad. Try a new plug first.
I have a troy bilt riding mower. I put a new battery in it last summer. This yr., my son left the key in on positon when he got done cutting the grass. Naturally it killed the battery, I jump started the mower and cut grass for 4 hrs., but the battery did not charge. What could the problem be?
It may not be charging due to a bad connection to the battery or to the generator on the engine. The generator on the engine may be going or has gone bad.I hope this helps.

Make sure you can turn the blade by hand, make sure grass isn’t stopping the blade after that make sure the break cable isn’t bad, sometime’s the cable don’t disengage the break from the flywheel. Hope this works.
YARD MACHINE MOWER NOT A YEAR OLD YET AND IT CRUDDIES UP EACH NEW SPARK PLUG AND SMOKES, NOT RUNNING WELL. ITS RUNS REAL FAST AND THEN REAL SLOW, SPUTTERS. I HAVE ALWAYS KEPT AIR FILTER CLEAN AND OIL CHANGED. WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM? MY SON THINKS ITS THE RINGS AND SAID I SHOULD TAKE IT BACK TO HOME DEPOT BUT I’VE HAD IT FOR 11 MONTHS. WHAT SHOULD i do??
Return the mower if possible for warranty repair or call MTD with the issue. MTD mowers typically are good quality and should run like new for a long time with proper care. Depot may give you a 1-800 number instead of customer service so before you load up the mower talk to them. It does sound like a bad valve seat or rings either one is not typical wear and tear.
Mower won’t start with key
You have one of three things going on, either your battery is is low, in which caes you shouls have it tested to ensure there is not a dead cell. or you have a bad ground, remove the starter and clean all mating surfaces with a wire brush then reinstall if this doesnt help ensure that your battery is completly charged then try using a jumper wire from the battery to the starter if the starter does engage at this point then the solenoid is bad and needs to be replaced.

If you are having problems starting your mower you should check 3 things, air, fuel and spark.Fuel: check to make sure you are full of good quality fuel, try to start the engine several times then take out the spark plug and it should look wet. If its not wet then you aren’t getting fuel into the engine.Air: remove and clean the air filter with clean gasoline if its made of foam. If its made of paper then you should buy a new one from a local auto parts or hardware store.Spark: disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug and hold the wire close to the engine block. Try to start the engine and watch for a spark to jump between the end of the wire and the engine block. If it doesn’t then either the wire is bad or the ignition coil is bad.Reply to this solution when you find the problem and I can tell you how to solve it.
