SOURCE: john deere runs then stops

I fixed my mower stalling issues on the L111 by loosening the gas cap. I ultimately drilled a hole in the gas cap and screened the hole. Sounds ridiculous but without that venting the engine would run approximately 20 mins and die. It was also much more difficult to start the next time. Something else to pass along to whomever might view this... I replaced the cranking battery with a battery that had allot more cranking amps and I no longer had hard start issues ( this was after I vented the gas cap). Hope this helps.

SOURCE: John Deere 318 won't start. Replaced starter/alternator.

I don't think it's electrical. The starter gear gets jammed against the teeth on the flywheel. Try tapping the edge of the gear with a drift of some kind then try starting again. It won't solve the problem long term, but it will save you spending time troubleshooting an electrical problme that doesn't exist.

John deere 170 with a kawasaki 14hp engine. Battery has 11 volts. I turn the key nothing happens when I jump the solinoid the starter hums. Any help is greatly appreciate

Battery is low. Either the battery is bad or the charging system is bad. You should read 12.5 volts or more when not running, 14 volts when running.

My John Deere 1023e had a dead battery now it won't start

Sounds like the battery is discharging somehow. I would check to see if the key that starts it and controls the headlights is left on and allowing the batter to discharge.

John Deere LA140 won't turn. New battery. No sound when I turn the key. No headlights, what should I do?

Check your connections at the battery. May have a bad ground or bad battery connection. Also check to make sure new battery is good by supplementing with a jump start. If new battery is good and connections are solid, you most likely have a broken wire somewhere. The lights may only work with the mower running though. I believe on my LA105 the lights only come on with the engine running and dim/brighten with the RPM of the engine.

John deere model240 mower will not start. Have replaced coil and still not getting spark at the plug . Engine turns over strong

Only option left.... 12 volts feeding coil is not there. The ignition key applys the 12 volts to the coil in the "Run" and "Start" positions. Verify 12 volts at input to coil and then (if needed) follow wire back to key and confirm voltage there....and (if needed) follow input wire to key from battery. One of those critters is open - since you have already confirmed the coil/spark plug wire is not at fault.

My John Deere srx75 was running good I shut it off and now can't get it restarted. The battery is fine and when I turn the key there is no sound at all.

Hold key in the start position and move or wiggle the transmission lever a little; you'll hit the sweet spot and it will fire!
