Does this mower have a Briggs and Stratton engine with overhead valves? If so, (and this will sound really weird) you need to adjust the valves. After a few hours of running, the intake valve will go out of adjustment so the decompressor won't work. It acts like the battery is dead when this occurs.

sounds like it didnt take a charge; make sure all electrical connections are good and that it is getting power to the built-in charger. is there a indicator showing that its charging? are all the wires on the mower connected? you may need to get a new battery

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.

SOURCE: I just bought my PR625Y22RKP and it says to charge

If it starts don't worry about 24 hours. Mow the lawn then put it back on charge. If it doesn't start pull the cord.

John Deere L120 wiring diagram

The electric clutch draws current while engaged. It is quite hungry on power which means that if the battery is low, the generator may not be making enough to charge the battery and hold the clutch in too. This is why the batteries on these machines are so large relative to say an ATV battery. I have several times experienced units with low batteries which started the engine OK but would not hold the clutch in. The battery may be getting old and not holding the charge. Try charging with a mains operated charger. Make sure to check water level in battery cells. Running them dry can ruin the battery.

My l130 will not power the cutter

Check batter power is high enough to operate the electro magnet. Charger may not work if battery is very low and yellow light stays on. Check battery water level. Charge with external charger.

Battery not charging

Looks like the battery is wasted. I'd have it replace it. A new battery should keep charged for longer period of time.

The charging system on a C425 John Deere riding lawn mower will not charge the battery.

It could be that the battery is not taking a charge. If you have an external battery charger, try taking it out and charging it.

You should also be able to take the battery into your local auto parts store and they can test it for you for free.

If the battery tests good then you probably need to replace the alternator.

Mower will not start - seems as if the battery is dead (what to do).

How old is the Battery? Are all battery terminals clean and tight?
Charge the Battery for one hour and if the battery charger has a starting position , after one hour set the charger to starting postion and try starting the mower. Make sure the blades are not still engaged the mower will not start. Check key switch. I have had them go bad.
Check all safety devices to see if maybe one of them might not be making contact.

Good Luck,

Old john deere gator and battery new charger still will not move

Could be several things.  Your battery could be bad. After not being charged for a while, they do go bad- often. You may want to try a new battery along with your new charger.  You could also have a switch /connection problem. If you get a new battery and it still doesnt work, you may want to check the switches and wiring. It is not uncommon for the switch to go bad especially if it had been stored outside.
