    I'm stumped how to solve this and avoid a trip to the dealer. Left ESC grip fails to release all the way, pulling the mower of course to that side.
    If I nudge it forward w/the top side of my fingers I can get it to release all the way, but a complete pain in the arse....I have done everything I can think of (clean, lube, etc.) but cannot correct it. Dealer offers no tips, just bring it in and pay $$$.
    Any suggestions?

    Does it does this if the machine is running or not?

    If it does this when the machine is and isn't running, you've most likely got some binding in the linkage somewhere.

    If it only does it when the machine is running, you might have an issue in the pump itself.

    Let me know what you find and we'll walk through it.
