SOURCE: 2305 john deere, idle runs slow in full idle.

Look at the fuel filter bowl on the rear of the engine right hand side to see if you can see a red ring raised up slightly from the bottom of the bowl.If you can see the ring then there is water in the fuel[or ice by now]You will need to take of the filter and get the water out of the filter bowl by taking it indoors to thaw.Before removing the filter bowl,turn off the fuel,petcock is just above and to the rear of the filter.Once the water is out you then need to clean the bowl out and re-install with a new filter.Pick up a product called "diesel melt" at the dealership and add it to your fuel for the rest of the cold season{follow the instruction on the bottle}.If this is not the case then the linkage on the injection pump may need to be adjusted to get the rpm up to no more than 2450 rpm..

did you drain the gas before putting it away last season? If not, I would drain all of the gas and put in fresh gas, also replace any in line gas filters

SOURCE: John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,

could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the ideas. I will try your suggestions. Tractor used for snow blowing during the winter and gas did not stay in it long. Good ideas!"

SOURCE: Hello my name is John. I have a 345 John Deere

345's have a habit of the choke sticking at the carb.Another problem they have is the fuel pump diaphram will crack and allow your engine to fill up with fuel,to much fuel in crankcase will end up past the rings when not running and smoke pretty bad when fired up.

SOURCE: my john deere rideing mower idles up and down at

The motor has a governor that controls its speed, and if one of the pivoting parts or linkages is sticking this would happen. Look for the throttle linkage on the engine carburetor (move your throttle up and down, watch what moves). The governor will be a second linkage attached to the throttle arm. Squirt some WD-40 on any rotating parts and make sure a foreign object isn't stuck in there. It could also be the part of the governor that's internal to the engine -- harder to get at, but not expensive to fix.

La-175 will only click when trying to start,battery fully charges, terminals cleaned any thoughts

Could be a sticky starter motor, try giving it a tap with a leather hammer or something similar. If it then turns over, you may want to invest in a new started motor

I have a john deere push mower JX85. It is running rough is there an adjustment

It is possible if you cleaned the carb you may have upset something. You could have dirt in the carburetor jet. Also make sure you have the right spark plug and that you have it set properly. Also the right gas. Has anything abnormal happened to this machine? Does it run rough in idle? then advance the idle adjustment.
