There is no easy way to check transaxle fluid level for this model. See service manual below.

First check both bypass levers are in proper position. See page 17 of operators guide.

If bypass levers are correct, then see purge procedure page 4-8 in the service manual.

Note; left turn failure during forward travel is a power issue with the right transaxle.

If there is marked fluid leaking from suspected transaxle, it will need addressed (removed, repaired, reinstalled).

I would suspect the right wheel motor is barely working (or not at all) and forward motion is from the left only so any attempt to turn left is problematic since the right wheel motor has little or no power. If you can get all wheels off the ground you can test and compare wheel motors.

You don't. Just wrap a bungee cord around the handle to keep engine running if you take your hands off the bar.

Be aware that "weed eater" is a registered trade mark of "WeedEater". What you want is the price of a Toro String Trimmer. Here are Home Depot's prices:

Try starter fluid to determine whether its a fuel problem or spark. Remove air filter cover and filter and spray a short burst (about 1 second) of fluid into carb throat (or as close as possible behind baffle C) and promptly pull starter cord.

Hopefully it is off by now. If the kill switch does not work then take off the air filter and put your hand over the opening or pull the plug wire or put the choke on full.
