Question about Garden
The ignition switch on the mower keeps on coming loose in the housing. I removed the wires from the ignition switch to unravel them, tightened up the switch but cannot remember which connectors go to which terminals. I photographed the assembly before removing the connectors but regrettably the photograph is too dark to show which wires/connectors go to which terminal Larry Granger Guernsey
Go on BING images, put in John Deere Ignition switch diagram and all sorts pop up. See if that helps. Most are the basic switch setup. Keep a copy for the future.

I am holding the switch part (INDAK 681064) with the black pushbutton switch to the right.
The two wires on the top are Red then White. The two wires on the bottom are both black.

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.
