Jd X320 will not start changed fuel filte,spark plugs,and checked air filter

I assume it cranks, but won't fire up? Make sure the choke lever is moving the linkage in front of the carb. If so, tap the carb bowl lightly with a wrench. (That fixed mine once, and it never did it again) Have you had your valve lash adjusted? Be sure the carb is getting fuel. Pull the fuel line off the carb, and try to crank it... My X320 has 1,500hrs on it, and I have had great luck! Keep me posted, I want to help you get this figured out!

I have a john deere gx85, i have been using it all year and had no issues until recently. it runs strong for about 5 minutes then all of a sudden dies and sounds like it chokes itself out. i cleaned air...

A buddy of mine had this problem. He said there is a line running from the carb down to the crankcase. I don't know if a valve quit working in the carb or what...basically after he shut it off, it was draining fuel into the crankcase. Obviously he changed the oil, and started shutting off the fuel valve after he mows with it. No problems since.

I imagine the problem could be solved with a carb rebuild as well.

JD L120 riding mower keeps dying on me

Loosen fuel cap 1 turn to see if it will stay running.Theres a tank breather hole/vent in the cap and when it becomes plugged no air can get into fuel tank when fuel is used,can also be a plugged fuel filter.

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.

That is a fuel problem caused by stale gas you will need to remove and clean the carb with carb cleaner.

John deere 42 inch,17.5 hp-was running good then just died-will start back but will only run about a minute and die again,clean air filter,changed fuel filter,checked fuse -ok, module on side of engine...

have you had a look at carb side of things as it may be having fuel starvation probs.. the fuel in line not getting through jets or float chamber cleanly.. also the tank might have contamination from rust or debris..
