How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
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.
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.
If there are punctures or damage in the shoulder or sidewall of the tire, it is not repairable. If the injuries are close enough so that the repairs overlap or the injuries are directly across from each other, the tire cannot be repaired and must be scrapped.
Fix-a-Flat will not cause harm to most tires when used as directed on the label. We do not recommend installing Fix-a-Flat into quiet tires. The tread area of a quiet tire is coated with a layer of foam.
The likely cause is a failed wheel bearing unless something exceptional has caused the brake caliper to lock the brake rotor. By far, the most common cause of what you are describing is simply bearing failure though. Repair can be obtained by requesting wheel bearing replacement.
Grinding gears, starting and stopping during operation, and the wheels not rotating with the pulley are common signs that your mower`s transmission is breaking down.

Well first you should check to make sure that the blades move freely. While the engine is off you can (safely, with a glove) grab one off the blades and see if you can move it freely,(the other two should move as well) By process off elimination you should be able to figure out which blade is giving you trouble. I’m guessing it could be as simple as something wrapped around the blades, to as complex as a bearing has gone bad. If this doesn’t take care of your problem you can reply back, being more specific and I’ll do what I can to walk you through this. Please rate my answer.
