Question about John Deere Garden
As I'm cutting grass I will turn it off to dump the cut grass out of the bags. The motor is hot at this time I go to start it and it wont. I checked the oil, and made sure battery cables were tight. If you let it sit for a minute, it will then turn over. FYI- The lights come on also, the battery I would think is not the problem.

A very common problem with the GX series with Kawasaki engines. The carburetor 'inlet needle' sticks open and fills the crankcase with fuel. When checking the oil, it can be difficult to see the gasoline and the level appears to be OK. Remove the dipstick and smell the oil, you may detect a gasoline smell. Also, drain the oil, and you may find much more fluid than you expect.
The solution on newer mowers was to install an 'in-line' shut-off valve to keep the fuel from syphoning into the carburetor. The inlet needle and seat in the carburetor is NOT replaceable, so a new carburetor is the ultimate solution, but VERY expensive. Installing and using an in-line shut-off valve is more affordable.
Also, this situation is common when machine is transported on a trailer, as the bouncing causes the needle/seat to leak. When transporting, always turn off the fuel supply to the carburetor.

sounds like the flote is stuck down in the carb thats causing it to flood up strip card and give it a goofd clean out
its that or the mower deck is sezed up or the blades are rounded off and your stalling the engine trying to turn it and cut grass,, have a look at them as well,,,
