Riding lawn mower - running at high speed
I have a riding lawn mower model # 536.270282 that I purchased used. When I put the speed control lever all the forward and hold it, the mower will run at top speed. As soon as I let go of the lever, it returns to slow speed. How can I get the mower to go at high speed without holding on to the speed control lever?

You need to replace the throttle control on the mower. The part number of the throttle control is 1401248MA and the cost is around $16.00. This comes with the throttle cable and the throttle lever. Something has broken or worn out in the throttle lever.

I have no problem with the throttle. It's the speed control lever, or direction lever I am talking about. When I put it in forward and hold the lever all the way to the top, it will run at full speed. When I let go, the lever "falls" back and the speed drops. The engine rpm is still runnung at fast.
