Question about John Deere Garden

Open Question

John Deere JS36 self propelled lawn mower does not run because it doesn't have any compression. When I pulled the head cover and rotated the motor by hand it appears that piston to valve relations

I bought the mower used and have never heard it run. Even though it looks brand new I know that it has been used some because there is grass clippings in the housing near the blade.

Check for bad bearing in clutch immediately, Remove belt, try and turn the clutch pulley if it is hard to turn or feels rough, replace the bearing in the clutch. If you do not replace bearing immediately you will be buying a $300.00 clutch very soon. I know from experience. You possibly have been hearing a loud unusual roar from engine area for awhile and wondered where it was coming from. As these bearing will usually squall a cry for awhile before they die.

SOURCE: Can a mulching blade work in a non-mulching mower?

True Mulching mowers have a specific deck design to them, but I would say yes to your question.It's been quite a few years, but I have done this little conversion myself - replace regular blade with a mulching blade. Just make sure the mulch blade does fit your mower. Also, use something substantial in terms of strength to close the discharge opening. There can be a good deal of force placed at the opening from flying debris. You'll also want to make the cover removable, so you can mow damp grass without the cover.

SOURCE: Honda lawn mower, self propelled mechanism not working

check the mechanism first before changing the gearbox its possible that the cable might jump out from the pulley or the cable is worn out or its possible that the gear on the tire is worn out to if not then that would be the time for you to change the gear box it would be hard to change it if you don't have the right tools to work on it if you know how everything work its not that hard to replace it just make sure were everything goes memorize the parts before disassembling cause that would be you guide to reassemble it...goodluck

SOURCE: blade belt diagram for John Deere LX178 Riding

Remember the belt rule, V of the belt goes in V pulleys.Flat pulleys that are stationary or move get the back of the belt. You can figure it out. Its not rocket science. Remember at some point there has to be a tensioner,usually gets the back of the belt if its a flat pulley. U may have to remove the spring and then reattach the spring after the belt is routed.

I have a John Deere JS30 self propelled lawn mower I had issues with it running for 15 minutes and then it stops running. Was low on oil. Added oil over the full line now it runs for 3 min and dies


Wayne, correct your oil level to full line, change your spark plug and try mower. If still acting up after a couple minutes, the Gas cap vent may be plugged, remove or loosen cap to see if mower will run longer and better. If no improvement, the carburetor is dirty and needs cleaned or rebuilt.

First guess is the flap that protects you from flying debris and grass. It must pass vertical and then be dragged under the mower when going from forward to reverse. c0fcb146-2ad7-49f7-900c-5183207e7c3f.jpg

How to clean carburetor on John Deere JS36 Lawn mower


Indeed, a dirty carburetor can prevent the John Deere JS36 from starting or running correctly. Mine had this problem. A video that helped:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArCAivgAyww

The video is more in depth than you need but basically shows you what to look for inside the unit. Essentially: Remove the air filter assembly from the carburetor (a couple of bolts). Clamp off the fuel line, disconnect it from the carb. Unbolt the carb from the mower (a few bolts). Disconnect the choke and throttle arms from the top of it. Unscrew the cup from the carb, clean everything out. I used compressed air for all the little fuel channels. Reassemble, reattach.

The mower starts, buts runs sluggishly, and dies


Most common is a dirty air filter, followed by a plugged vent hole in the filler cap on the gas tank. Next would be fuel issues either in the supply line or in the carburetor.
Hope this helps, --W/D--
