if you bring the lift lever all the way can you turn the knob? if you can spin the knob and nothing happens then the little trunnion on the knob shaft may be broken or the clip could have come out.

if you lift the hood then look under the battery tray on the left side of the tractor you will see the threaded shaft that the knob is connected to. check the shaft to see if the little trunnion is on the threaded shaft and if it moves when you spin the knob. if it moves as the knob spins (and it's in place) then there is likely a broken lift linkage.

if the lift linkages look good on the mower deck then it's possible that something broke on the lift lever itself.

let me know what you find.

thank you for using manage my life!
