SOURCE: john deere 420 trouble starting getting gas and

The engine needs air, so be sure the air filter is clean. If it is not, replace it.

The engine needs spark. Replace the spark plug and be sure that the battery has a complete charge.

The engine needs good fuel so be sure the gas is newly purchased, not gas that has been sitting around for months.

SOURCE: The charging system on the mower will not charge the battery up

The first thing to check on this machine is your voltage regulator try bypassing the voltage regulator to see if the alternator starts charging, it would be better to check your charging system with a voltmeter so that you know what the exact input and output in the electrical system.

Park brake switch is the most likely culprit,any other would cause the tractor to not turn over in the crank position.

Hi


Unhook the fuel pump feed to carb line and place it over a gas can with ignition disabled to see if it is pumping any fuel at all. If you are getting fuel past the filter and pump (should be low pressure) your next bet would be to check the carb itself. Many smaller motors that aren't run often can develop deposits or contaminants that clog small ports or jets in the carb and prevent fuel from making its way into the motor. If you have any available you may want to try spraying a little starting fluid into the carbs while cranking to see if it will help it turn over.

However if you are getting gas out of the bowl, then it can't be a plugged fuel filter. It could be bad needle-valve or blocked passage. Take the carb apart and soak it overnight in Lacquer thinner then blow it out with an air compressor. The float should be set slightly higher than level with the carburetor upside down.

Lx173 John Deere wont start. starter motor will not run to start eng you hear only solenoid engaging starter drive. have tested motor on bench. started blowing fuse since solenoid replaced.


You may have a bad key switch or you have a short in the wiring somewhere. Also check the Magneto's for proper gap. If they are loose they will stick to the flywheel and prevent motor from turning and could blow fuse.

Trouble shoot a John Deere lx 188 clutch?


Sounds like new belt is jammed or something is out of place. Turn by hand and find out where the problem is. You can tell where the belt is stuck or jammed. Pull the key before you mess with stuff underneath the unit. I installed my belt the wrong way on my unit and ruined a new belt and it would not shift.. The shifter rod could have been dislocated when you installed the belt also.

John Deere LX173 pto will not engage. Wet recently


Probably the pto switch. Find the 2 wire 'T' plug from the PTO clutch and disconnect. With a voltmeter across the the 2 spades on the tractor side of the plug you should get 12 volts DC with the PTO switch on ( you may need to sit in the seat ). If you get 12 volts at the plug its probably the PTO clutch. If no power then its a fuse or the PTO switch

John Deere 165 will not turn over. New battery has fuel. Engine clicks one time when I turn the key. Could this be starter or solenoid? How do I trouble shoot?


"One click" tells me it's a connection issue. Remove and wire brush the ground and battery cable connections at the battery, chassis, starter and starter solenoid.
