Question and Answers


lawn mower


Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the mower. If the right wheel is turning, we know the gear case is working. I suspect the problem is in the left pinion. I recommend removing the left wheel first. Then take the pinion apart and clean the parts with brake clean. Then reassemble the mower and test the operation. If the wheel still will not drive, I recommend replacing the pinion. Then image below will show you how the pinion should be assembled.

Please feel free to reply below with more details if you need further assistance.
