Question Snapper Mower REACT Drive Control System

Good Morning,

I have a Snapper mower with the REACT Drive Control System that automatically adjusts self propulsion speed based on how hard you push the mower. Ive encountered an interesting issue that I need help troubleshooting and have a feeling this is an easy ID/fix based on the symptom; just not sure what it is. I'd certainly like to avoid taking it in for service if possible.

The mower starts fine with a single pull. It also idles fine and continues to run/cut perfectly if pulled backward with the mower behind me. However, the second I try to push the mower in a forward direction normally (and by doing so, activating the REACT feature using the handles) the engine immediately cuts off. It will start again immediately with a single pull and behave exactly as before until I try to push the mower forward again.

Any ideas on whats causing this or how to correct? Thanks in advance.

Sounds like the engine shut-off cable on the handle is barely working, and the forward movement of the handle is just enough to let it contact the kill switch.

Is that something I can adjust?

They aren't adjustable. You can unhook the end at the handlebar and tie a knot in the cable and reconnect it to make it pull better.
