    I operated a John Deere mower for years. There was a BUTTON in an inconvenient place under the steering wheel that I had to push while reversing or the motor would stop. When I reached forward to push the BUTTON I couldn't see what I was reversing over. I mangled a few things with the HELP of the BUTTON. One day I discovered that the mower had begun to reverse without the BUTTON. Mowing was safer when I could look where I was going in reverse. Easier too.

To bypass you need to splice the wires. It acts as a three way switch. There should be a bypass on the key, bUT some do not have it. It is a trial and error wI ring job.

SOURCE: John Deere ride on mower L100 17 hp.

Hello there:
I would first check to see if there is any binding in the deck belt's or gears and make sure that the deck is not set to low that you are cutting dirt instead of grass also make sure that all of the rods and opins are secure and are not bent ok?
best regards mike

SOURCE: John Deere Lt 166 ride on mower

jd lt 166 has 5 different decks
3 of which have the same belt routing
1st the belt needs to be adjusted correctly to stop it from "slacking off"
then on most decks the belt is routed in between the 2 small idler pulleys and then to the engine pulley
so let me know the deck i.e. 36", 42 ", 46", 48"
different belt sizes also

SOURCE: my john deere lt 133 mower with a double blade

This model mulching deck uses a flat/ribbed serpentine belt that is set at very high tension.When belt breaks under the cover only one blade will turn due to IT being driven from PTO clutch as the other blade being turned from serpentine belt.This deck was Deere's first and last shot at making a true mulching deck and only made it a couple years.When you buy the VERY expensive belt it will come with detailed instructions on how to install it.Goog luck.

Have lt155 john Deere mower. When cutting blades are engaged, pushing reverse pedal all the way down cuts out motor. Yellow lockout button is also pushed in.

A lot of mowers have a safety feature built into them that don't don't allow reverse mowing, there is a sensor switch that cuts the motors when depressed. you can however override this safety feature by removing one of the wires off the reverse pedal depress switch, but do so only if you are a competent confident user of the machine. And remember to reconnect the wire if there will be other users.
