We are having the same problem, I followed the cable to the back part of the lawn mower by the battery. There is a small ram that the cable pushes in and back out when you release the peddle. I found that the top part of the ram was broken and there was no pressure to push the cable back in when the peddle is released. I have not found out how much the part is yet, looks to be an easy fix though. I hope this help..
It will probably be one of two issues. Either the waterflow sensor is not working correctly or the propane valve connected to to control knob is stuck shut. The water flow sensor is located on the side of the copper element (grey box) check that it spins easily. The propane valve is attached to the control knob by a long metal wire and should turn freely as you turn the control knob to warm
All the "safety" engine-kill "features" on this mower will ground the ignition system, stopping the engine and causing a no-spark condition. Check the seat switch, the brake switch. Also, the circuit board will cause the problem you have if it gets rained on, (the mower hood does not protect it); point is do not let the mower get rained on (or washed) unless you protect the PC board, which is right behind the ignition switch. Mine dried out and worked again but only after liberal spraying with (plastic-safe) electronic parts cleaner. You are right the manual would help, it's like $76 but it's in depth. Good luck, and PLEASE tell us what the solution was!
-Tom Helpful Deere lx176, lx178, hood hinge tip: If the hood hinge is broken on yours like on most, Deere has a GREAT repair kit that's only $10. They really priced it at cost or less to correct a defect they are aware of.
When you start to have this problem loosen the fuel cap and see if that makes any differance,there is a small vent hole in the cap that can get plugged.When it gets plugged your fuel tank will develop a vaccum and cause you engine to starve for fuel.Im not sure on this model but the older 100 series had a problem with the fuel line being pinched between the frame and the tank.
try changing one by one the fuel filters there could be as many as 4 or 5 one in the carb, on the fuel line to the carb on top of the engine, in the fule line on the frame rail, in the gas tank, even the sock covering the pump in the gas tank. secondly it could be the fuel pump or the fuel pressure regulator. a bad pump would cause hard starting ( many cranks befor it turns on) a bad regulator may cause a fluxuation in the idle.
I could see the progress in the battery down right corner. If entire battery becomes black then it is full charged. However I have a problem of the charge getting discharged very fast i.e., when the player is NOT powered OFF.
