2 problems are common with this machine.One is the earlier machines had bad placement of the fuel line at the tank causing it to get pinched off and restrict fuel flow.It may get pinched at the very top of tank where line starts or between very rear of tank and frame.2nd problem is with the decompression setting of the valves causing engine to have too much compression at start up.Set your valves when piston is a 1/4 inch past top-dead-center.Set your intakes at .004.

Those motors are funny. Oil level and oil delivery are essential. They have saftey shut off sensors if there is any problem with oil level. There aren't many hours on the motor for that to be an issue but check oil level, check it's color. If it's anyting but nice gold color (considering the low hours), you may have found your problem. Change filter, and flush (don't just drain and replace).

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.

John deere lt155 lawn tractor shuts off when it gets hot while mowing, could this be electrical?


I had a similar problem lasy year.
Try this:
As soon as the machine seems to be stalling, loosen the gas cap.
If the engine continues to run, clean the gas cap vent hole(s).

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 runs then stops


I fixed my mower stalling issues on the L111 by loosening the gas cap. I ultimately drilled a hole in the gas cap and screened the hole. Sounds ridiculous but without that venting the engine would run approximately 20 mins and die. It was also much more difficult to start the next time. Something else to pass along to whomever might view this... I replaced the cranking battery with a battery that had allot more cranking amps and I no longer had hard start issues ( this was after I vented the gas cap). Hope this helps.
