Take the muffler off and clean the gunk out of the hole going to the motor and i would soak the muffler in some carb cleaner overnight, let it dry and shake out the gunk. Put it back on and i'm certain it'll fix the problem.

I have a John Deere JS30 self propelled lawn mower I had issues with it running for 15 minutes and then it stops running. Was low on oil. Added oil over the full line now it runs for 3 min and dies


Wayne, correct your oil level to full line, change your spark plug and try mower. If still acting up after a couple minutes, the Gas cap vent may be plugged, remove or loosen cap to see if mower will run longer and better. If no improvement, the carburetor is dirty and needs cleaned or rebuilt.

Either timing is off or you may have turn key off with engine hot and running in high speed. Always return engine to idle for at least 30-45 seconds before turning engine off.

My john deere push mower starts fine mows for 10 min quits wont start so I took the the gas cap off looked at it put it back on push the prime bulb 1 time it started ran for 10 min quit did the gas cap...


I'm not sure of the model number of your mower or engine to know the fuel and carburetor set up. I do have one easy thing to try though as it sounds as if a vacume is building up in the tank. Try putting a half of tank of gas in it, leave the gas cap off, and see if it continues as it was or if it runs ok. If this stops the issue your cap vent is pluged up. I hope this helps

1981 John Deere 1050 Diesel Tractor - Engine will go to high idle by itself. You can shut key off and engine will eventually die. What would cause the engine to high idle? Afraid engine will lock up.


There are 2 types of governors on diesels. one is controlled from the foot and is fixed speed at the foot setting. The other is variable speed which will run to high idle if the setting is not changed IE on start it will idle ok but if you use a fast setting on a hand throttle say to warm up the motor it will run to high idle. I suggest that if you have not had a problem before then you should have a diesel pump specialist look at it as there may be a fault in the governor control.

L100 john deere runs but has erradic idle, okay when blades engaged???


Never mess with the air adjuster .. If it was set correctly once It should never need messing with. Now you have another variable to the problem. More then likely the fuel Jet has some obstruction in it. Drop the fuel bowl and take the Jet out and clean it.

Stalls after 20 mins. of running fine. (Starving for gas)


From the rear of machine look at the top left of fuel tank for the fuel line.Where line comes out of tank see if it is pinched where it goes down between frame and tank,grab line and see if it moves freely.If that is OK loosen fuel cap after 10 minutes of run time to see if your vent hole in cap is working.These are 2 common problems for the L series mowers.

John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,


could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.
