Scotts Lawn Mower self-propulsion weak

Just recently my scotts mower stopped climbing hills. When I lift the rear wheels off the ground they move. Also the speed selector still appears to work. DO I have to make a cable adjustment or check for worn gears? Or is it something else?

If you have an adjustment on the cable, adjust it to get the cable tighter. If not, I'd have a look at the belt.

do you have the model number? I happen to have a 2001Scotts self propelled in the shop now. I noticed on this one that the plastic drive wheels are half worn out on the inside where the drive gear drives it. look at the inside of the drive wheels.
