Mountfield SP474?

The mower works fine apart from the self propelled
mechanism,which does not seem to do anything when
you engage the clutch I have tried adjusting it.Does
anyone no if a maintenance manual is available,or can
offer any advice.
Thanks Alan

Hate is a very strong emotion, perhaps the mower has picked up on your extreme dislike towards it and is trying to teach you an important life lesson. Try and show the mower love and I'm sure it will work fine. Failing that get a new drive belt.

If you look under the mower, above the blade you will see a plastic cover, remove this (you'll have to remove the blade too) to see the state of the drive belt. It's probably broken or slipped off the drive mechanism. It's not difficult to replace, but if you are not sure take it to a garden machinery place. They shouldn't charge more than half and hours labour, the belt is less than £10.
