I take it this tractor has a water pump? It could be that the pump is going out or an idler pulley bearing is bad. If you can move the fan back and forth there is something loose or a bearing out causing the belt to slap the housing. Check to see if you can see any wobbling pulleys. Hope this helps. MT

When I engage to mow, the mower deck has a clanging sound. do I need to change the belt ?


not likely a belt thing. Sounds like a bent blade, bent housing, bent spindle shaft. Perhaps something simple like a piece of metal or a rock jammed up in the housing.

  • Turn the key off and remove it from the machine.
  • Raise the housing up high enough to look everything over. Or maybe I should say to look everything under.
  • Rotate the blades to see where one might be hitting the housing or other object.

The belt usually does not contribute to clanking noises.

Hi, it sounds like you have the wrong belt (if it new one) orvery worn if it is used.
Also check the spindles for damage because if you have hit anything with the blades it may crack the housings which put the pulleys out of sync.
If you have hit something or there is damage , you may have bent the deck which moves the pulley off sync too.solutions would be a new belt or spindle or even deck.
Take it to your local John Deere Dealer for further advice.
regards,
Baz

My trooper died. It was making a "clakity" sound


fan could have been hitting radiator but those vehicles are known for having problems with the timing components. And a radiator under the vehicle is most likely a cooler for the power steering. Its possible that the belt stopped turning due to a pully like the power steering pully not moving causing the vehicle to not charge the battery. That will cause the vehicle to die after the battery runs down

When I turn the air switch on a sounds comes on like from the fan but the fan is turning if i turn the swith off the sounds goes away. where is the sound coming from?


could be the fan hitting or rubbing on the fan housing or something has fallen into the fan motor housing thru a vent such as a paperclip, coin etc. and the fan is hitting that object. correcting either problem requires the opening up of the fan motor housing.

My computer when turned on is making a big rattling sound. What is wrong with the computer and how can I fix it?


Sounds like something is loose and is hitting the fan blades.
Remove the cover and check the cables near the fan, tie the cables back and make sure they don't hit the fan blades.

Lg 1030hr excessive ping noise


COULD BE ALOT OF THINGS BUT MY FIRST GUESS IS THE FAN SCREWS THAT HOLD THE FAN MOTOR COULD BE LOOSE CAUSING IT TO RATTLE ON START UP OR SHUT DOWN BUT REALLY NOT MAKING TO MUCH NOISE AS THE UNIT IS RUNNING. CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE NOISE BETTER? IS IT SCRAPPING LIKE A SCRUB OR KNOCKING LIKE HIT HIT HIT HIT?
