John Deere L130 riding lawn tractor will not start what do I do?

I'm assuming the motor will crank over, but not start. Remove the air intake cover & filter off the carburetor air intake. Do you smell gas? Is gas dripping out of the carburetor? If not, spray a couple shots of starting fluid or carburetor cleaner into the carburetor air intake throat. Close the choke & crank the engine. If it starts, & stalls, repeat the process. If it won't stay running, your carburetor float jet is gummed up & needs to be cleaned. Check & clean the spark plug. Does the spark plug fire when the engine is cranked? If no, then you have an ignition problem.

John deere riding mower wont turn over unless plug is out

IF you have to remove the spark plug to get the engine to crank, check to see when the motor is in the compression stroke and go just past that point and try again to see if the motor cranks with the spark plug back in. 3 of 4 piston motions are not related to compression. If it does not move then the starter does not have enough torque.

John deere will not start

Charge the battery fully, verify good contact on the battery terminals. If it won't crank, check for voltage at the starter motor while trying to crank, check battery voltage while cranking (if it drops below 9V, the battery needs to be replaced).

If it cranks but doesn't fire, make sure it has plenty of good fresh gasoline, verify that the carburetor float valve isn't sticking shut, verify that the spark plug is good and you're getting good spark while you crank.

My JD lawnmower won't start. Starter is good. Replaced Cylinoid. Removed spark plug...too much gas there.

John deere lane rider la135 wont start.

You don't mention if they are on and are bright or are week. Do they dim when trying to cranks the motor? I would start with checking the ground wire at the battery and where it connects to the frame. Make sure both are clean. From there, have the battery tested and then the starter.

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.
