Is the cable engaging the transmission? Is the belt on?

Welcome to the forums waldo! they'll need more info about your mower and what's wrong with it before anyone can help

retrofixx - my stepson has a craftsman self propelled mower that is bad about chewing up the gear on the front tires [it's only plastic] Pull one of your front tires and see if the outer portion of the gear is worn down, if so you'd need to replace the 2 front tires [I think they are $15-20 each]
