John Deer riding mower

The charging system is not working on my 5 year old John Deere L120 riding mower. I have already replaced the battery. That didnt fix it. I was told there are 2 alternators on this model. Is that true? How do I go about finding the problem?

Here is a link to John Deere website for this model, it states that it has a 16 amp charging system. It also has the phone numbers listed for contact, and requesting the manuals for this mower.

John Deere L120 wiring diagram

The electric clutch draws current while engaged. It is quite hungry on power which means that if the battery is low, the generator may not be making enough to charge the battery and hold the clutch in too. This is why the batteries on these machines are so large relative to say an ATV battery. I have several times experienced units with low batteries which started the engine OK but would not hold the clutch in. The battery may be getting old and not holding the charge. Try charging with a mains operated charger. Make sure to check water level in battery cells. Running them dry can ruin the battery.

My John Deer L120 riding mower is shutting down

Two things to and fuel. Lets start with the simplest....check and replace the fuel filter, drop bowl off the bottom of carb to make sure float is working properly. If this dosen't work...your looking at a new coil. Some coils will go quickly where others are gradual. As they heat up...they will stop working until allowed to cool down again.

Try replacing the gas in the fuel system. The manufacturers are telling us that gas over 30 days is considered bad gas.
Good day.

John Deere L120 appears to run out of gas

This is the most common problem with the L120 I'm told. The pin hole in the gas cap needs cleaning (top and underneath as well). I have replaced mine twice already and have only 140 hrs. on it. Starts right up after cleaning. (My symptoms were identical to yours)
