Unhappy Honda HS928WAS ~ Drive Lever Does NOT disengage transmission!

*Also Posted under Honda Brands as 'HS928 Transmission STAYS Engaged with Drive Clutch Released!'
Hello ...

Hoping to find some help.

My Honda HS928 has starting behaving rather "strangely" ... the drive clutch is NOT disengaging the transmission when released. Yesterday it began creeping in both forward & reverse and the only way to stop it was to set it into neutral (a very finite setting btw). I'd thought perhaps it was simply due to the bitter cold & blowing snow but ... today it seems to be even worse i.e., we're not just creeping anymore!! If the auger is still engaged it's ok but, if I release the auger clutch without setting the trans back to neutral first well ... let's just say it's a bit unnerving. Needless to say this is a heavy, powerful machine and challenging enough most times so this has me concerned.

The only info on transmission problems I've found so far seem to be related to the unit not engaging/moving ... unfortunately I've the opposite problem. It won't stop snowing around here long enough to get it into a service center so any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance!

* Thanks to these forums I've learned a lot about operating the hydrostatic drive already ... perhaps now the 928 will stop beating me up each time I use it !!
