    I chedked, the belt is not on the transmission pulley....I have purchased another belt and will try to get it on soon. thanks!

  • rheern Jun 19, 2009

    The belt was wedged under the pulley, so I did have to pull the deck, when I finally pulled the belt it was worn so I replaced it, and the mower blades, and mowed my grass :-).

    Have you checked the condition of the belt? Is it still on the two idler pulleys by the engine pulley and is it still on the transmission pulley? Did you take one of the rear wheels off before this problem started?

Just because it came off doesn't necessarily mean you need a new, one unless it looks bad. A stick or Sweetgum ball could have flipped it off. Try just putting it back on and see how it does. Easier than dropping the deck and replacing it.

X595 john deere pto wont kick in


These John Deere Garden Tractors have a RIO (Reverse Implement Option) on the PTO. If your PTO is engaged and you back up, the PTO will automatically stop. To reset it, depress your PTO engagement switch to the OFF position. Take your foot off the reverse pedal. Pull up on the PTO engagement switch. The PTO should restart. To use the RIO feature, pull up on the PTO switch for a second or two just before you step on the reverse hydrostatic pedal. The yellow RIO indicator light should come on your dashboard and you can now back up with the PTO still running. Works great for snow blowing when I don't want to keep resetting my electric PTO clutch to keep restarting my snow blower.

If your PTO will not restart, you may have a PTO switch starting to fail, or a likely logic problem in your electric PTO control module, or one of your forward/reverse indicator switches, which is linked to your PTO control module along with the overtemp circuit, is stuck/faulty.

Engine runs but stalls when engaged


This sounds like a micro switch, or relay issue, it is not stalling it is being switched off, if there are some relays on the back of the bulk head replace them, they are just a push fit.

Lawnmower wont move in fwd or reverse


Is the brake sticking. On my craftsman mower there is a bar under the brake pedal that pushes back a lever when starting. And the lever sticks. I have to reach underneath and pull the lever forward and then the mower goes. I haven't found a solution to that yet.

Engine dies when engaging PTO switch on a John Deere GT235. I have replaced the seat switch and the PTO switch.


Check and adjust your RIO switch{reverse implement option}near the trans if so equipped.What happens when you press forward pedal then engage blades?Would also check the lower bearing on your pto clutch to see if its seized up.

Will not go into gear


a hydro uses a foot pedal on the right side , you push forward to go forward or rock the pedal rearward to go in reverse - a regular transmission has a shifter usually between your legs for reverse 1st 2nd or 3rd gear - you also said the blades wont engage . are they electric ( with a switch ) or do you manually move a lever .
