Make sure the free wheel lever is pushed in, you have one on each side for each transmission. Have you changed tires? Make sure the key is on the axle shaft. Then check the linkage under the seat.
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 :
Your zero turn mower is weak on one side because of one or more of many reasons: traction adjustment being wrong, dragging drum brake, bad dampers, incorrect balance, tire compression does not match, or there is air trapped in the hydrostatic motor.
If the tire pressures are different on each side, it can cause one side of the mower to engage less than the other. To fix this problem, you must inspect if both tires have the same pressure using a tire gauge. Once you verify that they`re unmatched, you must inflate the tires with the necessary pressure.
That reduces their cost to build their mower but gives you zero additional value in your purchase. The dampers reduce operator fatigue by eliminating negative hydraulic-system feedback through the levers. They eliminate the “jerky” feel while performing tight, precise maneuvers around obstacles.
Low tire air pressure on the slow side. A worn drive belt that is too loose on the trans. farthest from the tensioner.
Worn or broken blade drive belt – If the riding mower blades are not spinning, the blade drive belt may be worn or broken and unable to engage the blades. If the belt is intact, inspect it to see if it`s loose or slipping on the pulleys then replace it with a new one if necessary.
Steering wheel, or lap bars? Traditionally zero-turn mowers were only known to exist with the lap bars which you would more commonly see. Now, these are perfect as you can quickly adjust the speed of each wheel by simply pushing or pulling the levers in front of you.
If your lawn mower battery won`t hold a charge, verify connections are clean and tight first, then connect it to the charger. If it isn`t fully charged within 8 hours, your battery is dead and you`ll need to replace it. If your lawn mower battery does charge fully, the charge should not drain if it is not in use.
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.

Power to turn the blades is intermitent. What should I look for?
Loose connection, corrosion on connections. If this machine is new to you, do you have to have the brake or clutch on to activate the blades? I would lean towards wires/connections as the cause of your intermittent problem.
I have a husqvarna zero turn rz4623 that will not start.
Give me an idea of what goes on when you turn the Key I have the same mower
My Z5426 won’t start. When I pull out the choke and turn the key, gas starts leaking out of the exhaust system just before it gets to the muffler. Last time it did start, it ran really rough. So, I turn off the engine and then tried to restart and that’s when I noticed the fuel leak.
Maybe bad fuel, fuel line leaking, flooding of the carburetor, since it did start and ran rough I am assuming that the gas was left set and more then likely this gummed up the carburetor, you will have to clean/rebuild it. If you have a can of carburetor clean you may be able to spray that into there and clean it up, I would not choke it to start it as it sounds like it got/is flooded/ing. Good Luck Tim
My husqvarna zero turn mower has an auto safety shut off. I have isolated 3 (Brake, Left control level, and Right contol lever)trying to see which one was faulty, but I’m not sure where to go next. When I took the brake off, the mower stalled so I held the safety button down and when the brake was off the engine stayed running. But when I pulled the Left or Right Control level to move, it shut off, so I held those down to see if I could see which one was faulty. The engine stayed running, so I couldn’t figure out which one was bad. Every thing stayed running until I engaged the mower deck, and then it shut down again. I gave up at that point and figured I needed an experts help! Thanks, Jon Sable
There should be a switch under the seat. The system is designed to stop all functions if no one is setting in the seat. I believe the seat switch has failed.
Check it out and let me know.

Could possibly have a broken selector fork on the transaxle, if so the transaxle will have to be pulled right down to repair the broken parts.
