Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the mower. I have posted the instructions for adjusting the drive below. Click on the image to view the instructions. If you have adjusted the drive just like this I recommend having a service technician come out and service the mower. It looks like the mower is a new model. The repair should be covered by the two year warranty. Here is a link for the website:
