John Deere L130 riding lawn tractor will not start what do I do?


I'm assuming the motor will crank over, but not start. Remove the air intake cover & filter off the carburetor air intake. Do you smell gas? Is gas dripping out of the carburetor? If not, spray a couple shots of starting fluid or carburetor cleaner into the carburetor air intake throat. Close the choke & crank the engine. If it starts, & stalls, repeat the process. If it won't stay running, your carburetor float jet is gummed up & needs to be cleaned. Check & clean the spark plug. Does the spark plug fire when the engine is cranked? If no, then you have an ignition problem.

John deere mower Won't start


Sounds like the carb is varnished up and needs to be rebuilt. They make rebuild kits depending on the carb number and you can rebuild it.

I am not familiar with this particular model but from the smell of raw gas I check the air filter and choke first to see that you are not flooding it. You could also take out the spark plug to see whether it is wet with gas.

I have a John Deere Z820A 25 Horse Kawasaki. After about 45 minutes it acts like it is running out of gas. It will start again with the choke out, but won't run for long. I have replaced fuel...


I am an ex-z820a owner because these machines are terrible. Deere issued a PIP for these motors and maybe yours has not beed done yet. The best thing to do is get with a dealer see if the PIP has been completed then sell as fast as you can. I traded my z820a on a z920a and couldnt be happier.

Lt180 won't run without choke pulled out..replaced fuel pump, gas,.2 spark plugs...fuel filter looks fine & carb was replaced last year.


Hi, disassemble and clean all jets in the carby, also check the valve clearances are correct because if they too tight the engine will not draw fuel in. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Scotts by john deere riding mower - 220 hours, 17.5 HP, 42" cut, Briggs & stratton engine -- New Strarter, new battery, good fuel... will turn over but engine will slow down then stop, will not...


Very high likelihood you have fuel line problems. Disconnect primary fuel line from bottom of fuel filter and blow compressed air back up the fuel line to the gas tank. This will clear the line of any trash. Reconnect fuel line to filter. Then remove spark plug and spray a couple of sprays of WD-40 into the cylinder.. Re-install spark plug and then restart. WD-4- will act as a starter fuel and will start the engine for enough rounds to get fuel pump to working to normal run.. Good luck.

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.

The mower starts, buts runs sluggishly, and dies


Most common is a dirty air filter, followed by a plugged vent hole in the filler cap on the gas tank. Next would be fuel issues either in the supply line or in the carburetor.
Hope this helps, --W/D--

John deere 420 trouble starting getting gas and


The engine needs air, so be sure the air filter is clean. If it is not, replace it.

The engine needs spark. Replace the spark plug and be sure that the battery has a complete charge.

The engine needs good fuel so be sure the gas is newly purchased, not gas that has been sitting around for months.
