SOURCE: my john deere 214 won't start

The deck lift lever normally wont start lifting until you pull back at least half way.Ther are 2 sets of wires that go under the fender deck,one set goes to the seat switch and the other set goes to the neutral start switch next to the shift lever,just in front of the seat.The neutral start switch wires more than likley came loose when you pulled fender deck off.The micro switch is on the back side of plate that surrounds shift lever.

SOURCE: Three point hitch on 2020 Jogn Deere Tractor will not raise.

In the worst scenario, the follower, or the piece that senses load on the control shaft , may have broken. Several causes could be the culprit, but happened on my 2520 . Fix requires total disassembly of final drive and differential to remove control arm and repair the follower. Good luck.

My rider craftsman model 917280083 the deck sits too low it drags the ground even at the highest settting


most craftsman have a bar that goes from the deck to the front of the frame that raises or lowers the deck in your case you will want to tighten it up to make the deck higher.

I have a John Deere LX178 lawn tractor and the mower deck will not raise/lower. It is all the way down and pushing in the button is how i've ALWAYS adjusted the height. It will not budge


1) NEVER adjust to where the deck wheels touch the ground. The wheels are to ride 1/4" off the ground. 2) The long lever to your left which raises & lowers the deck has 3 settings. 1- Fully back toward you which has the deck raised (called transport mode). 2- Halfway down which is the normal mowing mode (called float mode) 3- Fully away from you which sets the deck fully on the ground. This mode is ONLY used for VERY rough terrain where the deck risks getting pushed into "transport" or "full up" mode & getting stuck there. 3) On front-to-back tilt, the front should be 1/2inch lower than the back for least damage to the grass. Ok-now to adjust "cutting" height. 1) Park on a level, flat surface. 2) Pull the deck lever fully back toward you to put the deck into "transport" mode. 3) twist the "cutting" height knob (just below your seat) to the height you want the grass cut. Has choices by 1/2" increments from 1" to 3.5". The deck in "transport" mode is 4". 4) Lower the deck lever to the midway/"floating" mode point. 5) Adjust each deck wheel with its own peg & pin to have at least 1/4" clearance from ground. Thats it for "cutting height" adjustments

check brakes. raise front wheel and spin should spin freely. if so lower front wheel back to ground and raise rear wheel. turn wheel by hand and listen for brake drag/binding should turn easy. loosen axle nut see if that helps . loosen nut no more than half a turn.

2000 craftman lawn tractor 917.270822 blades will not engage


If your blades won't engage when you raise the lever to engage them AND that lever moves freely without the normally expected resistance, then you've lost the cotter pin that connects the lever rod to the mower deck assembly. Very easy fix! Using the mower deck raise/lower lever, lower the mower deck to "down" position. Now, lay on your side along the right side of the mower and look up (use a flashlight) under the mower at the top of the mower deck while moving the blade engagement lever "up" (which pushes the connected rod down). At the end of the rod, you will see a hole where the mower deck and rod connect. Align the hole at the end of the rod with the matching "pin" on the mower deck (you'll see it) and insert a new cotter pin to secure them together. Use a nail if you don't have a cotter pin. Voila! you are done. The blade engagement lever will now engage/disengage your mower blades successfully. Just remember that mower deck must be down, or lowered, before you engage the blades!

I purchased a used Craftsman LT 1000 17 hp 42"


I've had to do this at least 5 times. If you look under the body, there are two supports that carry the mower deck and lift and lower it. Each of these has a nut that holds up the deck and the nut is on a stud that goes up and down when you raise or lower the lever. Put the deck in the middle of it's range, around #3, make sure the key is off, move your blades so they are on the right and left edge of the deck.
Get yourself a device to measure blade to ground height, I have a block of wood that is 3 inches long. Make sure your floor or ground is level and tires are properly pumped up. Then raise or lower the adjustment nuts until both sides are equal height.

Deck only raises a little bit, not the way it is supposed to. Selections 1-4 is the same level, resting on the ground. how do i fix this


The bolts or wing nuts for the deck adjustment have likely come loose or off entirely from the raising/ lowering undercarriage.
Once you have identified the loose or missing nuts (and replaced, making sure to add lock washers) then move the mower to a flat, level surface and move height lever to the lowest setting (some mowers have a flap over an ultra-low setting for this purpose).
Now tighten the nuts on the raising / lowering arms. You should now have normal control over the height. Farmerbear at FixYa.com

The deck will not raise even , the riding lawnmower is a MTD Yard Machines, and when you raise the deck the left side does as it should, but the right side stays lowered to the ground and will not raise....


There is a pin that has come out of it's holf from the right side of the deck. Have someone raise the deck up and down and you should see a bracket or rod moving up and down. This attaches to the deck with a clevis pin to hold it in place.
