We bought a John Deere 7610 at auction a few months ago. Everything has been working very well, really like the tractor. A couple weeks ago we went to move it and the forward reverse lever would pop back to neutral, the tractor wouldn't move. Gave it 5 more minutes to let the oil warm up and everything was okay. It sat since then and recently it is doing the same thing but after giving it plenty of time to warm up still will not move. Would appreciate some advice on how we might be able to narrow down the problem. Thank you

Try lubricating all of the shift linkages.

A lot of different things can cause this problem. Have you tried holding the lever in the forward or reverse position? If it moves when held in position, then the lever is bad. If it still won't move, you really need to pull error codes to point you in the right direction. Put any size fuse in the slot in fuse box that is marked DIAG. Turn on the key and digital display should read dIA. Operate the turn signal lever to the right until rcu is displayed. While rcu is displayed, briefly turn on hazard switch and then back off. Then flick right turn signal one time and back off. the display will show 01 and also will scroll through any stored codes. Write down all the stored codes. There will probably be several 2 digit numbers. At the end of the list of codes, END will be displayed. While END is displayed, briefly turn on hazard switch again to clear the codes. Turn the key off and remove the diagnostic fuse. Start tractor and try to move again. Most likely it still won't move, but it should store a code that is actually related to your current problem. At that point, follow above procedure to check code in rcu again. Report back here and we can tell you what the code means.
