I have a Craftsman DYT 4000 which has an emergency brake on the front right side of the dash. I was foolish and set it and now I can't release it.
I have gotten underneath and attempted to release it manually, but haven't disassembled anything.
Any ideas how to release it?
Thanks for looking!
Spray some WD 40 in to the release arm mounted on the dash. Also spray the brake linkage/cables/control mechanism under the mower. Let it sit overnight. Next morning press the clutch/brake pedal down and then see if the brake release will release. If not, the brakes themselves could need adjusting or may have even seized up in the locked position. Good Luck. JMO
