Question and Answers


Why won't my mower move? 917254531


Thank you for your question.


I am sorry you are having a problem with the tractor. In the details of your question, you did not state if the brake pedal would spring back when you release it. If the brake pedal is not coming, back the problem could be the parking brake is set or the clutch return spring is broken. To determine if it is the spring, I recommend starting the tractor and put it in first gear. Once it is in gear try to pull the pedal back with your foot. If the pedal comes back and the tractor drives I suspect the clutch spring is broken. The spring connects between the idler arm and the frame. The part number for the spring is 105709X and can be ordered from the following link. Clutch return spring for Craftsman tractor model 917254531.

If the pedal will not come back when you pull on it, I recommend checking the parking brake lever. Push in on the brake pedal and then push the lever down. While holding the lever down, release the brake.


I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.  


Thank you for using Manage my life.
