A lot of mowers have a safety feature built into them that don't don't allow reverse mowing, there is a sensor switch that cuts the motors when depressed. you can however override this safety feature by removing one of the wires off the reverse pedal depress switch, but do so only if you are a competent confident user of the machine. And remember to reconnect the wire if there will be other users.

SOURCE: Mower cuts off when blade is engaged.

Not familiar with this model, but a thought, check for a kill switch.

SOURCE: mower cuts out

I would check the seat switch first. I had one that did that that ended up being a bad cell in the battery and a faulty charging system. Does it have an amp gauge on it to see if its charging ok?

One other thing....you say that it tries to stay running when you slightly depress the brake...is that including the pto? www.nnyparts.com

SOURCE: john deere mower stopped cutting

it could be a few different things it depends on if it is a electric clutch or manual for engaging the deck. It also could be a bad pulley on the deck

My 318 John Deere mower blades would not turnoff. The switch would not move. Even when I got off the seat the mower blades continued. I turned the motor off and now it won't start. Any idea?


Faulty attachmentment switch, replace it as it is sending a signal that it is engaged to your starter circuit, that is why it wont start.
It is also faulty as it wont engage the attachment (mower cutting deck)

My Lt155 ride on wont engage in forward or reverse


(Simple answer)Hydrostatic drive machines have a setting that allows you to push them. machine won`t move if this is engaged.
Also If park brake is on. Otherwise check drive belt has not snapped is loose or broken. Jack machine up and see if wheels will drive without weight of machine.

I just bought an old John Deere 68 riding mower but it does not cut grass even though the blade spins when engaged. I made sure the blade was on correctly but it still doesn't cut. I noticed the pulley...


Are you sure it is the correct blade and when it is turning the sharp edge is on the leading side? A spinning blade will cut grass even if the blade is dull. Did you lower the deck to the correct level?

Hello Sir, I have a john deere 25 horse 48 inch cut,the first thing that happen was the orange button you push to back up with blades engaged quit working and then the blades wouldnt come back on after...


sounds like the switch is bad, you will need to check it, as it may be just a loose connection, you can jump it out to test it out, or just straight wire it. Good luck Tim

Check fuses.Does the dash light for PTO come on?Right side screen by pedals sometimes comes in contact with wires and cuts them.This happens mainly on the older units.
