I have a john deere 345 tractor starts fine but bogs down after I engage the mower and wont stay running


Although not a riding mower, when mine was doing that, dis-assembled, cleaned and then re-assembled the carburetor. Now doesn't shut off when engaging the mower. Also, if you left gas in the mower over the winter, try some of the additive, but that didn't work for mine.

How do i dis engage the safety device?


It's not recommended but find the switch you want to bypass should have two wires going all the switch does is make a connection to send the power to start the mower or to keep the circuit going to keep mower running

Have a john deere sabre turn key won't start thought battery was dead charged battery still won't start jump start with car battery it will start then . try to engage reverse with blades running it...


Some mowers have a mowing reverse safety switch. That safety will kill the mower if you try to reverse with the deck engaged. Some mowers even have an override button that has to be held while backing up. As for the battery thing, no matter how much you charge a bad battery you will not get it to start a mower if it has a bad cell or two. I would use a multimeter to check battery voltage, but the end result would still be the same, replace the battery.

I hope this gets you going again.

When engaging the moer it doesnt want to start


The tractor has a safety feature that doesn't allow you to start the engine with the mower engaged. Just disengage the mower, then start the engine. Once you have it running, then engage the mower.

The mower starts but the blade switch won't conect yth1542xp


Husqvarna uses an electronic clutch to engage the mower deck. When the clutch works itself out of adjustment it will quit working. Sometimes it will blow the 20 fuse and the tractor will continue to run, but the blade won't engage. When you then shut off the tractor it won't crank again until you replace the fuse. When you attempt to engage the blades again, the fuse will blow again.

Follow this link for a detailed description of the adjustment process:

Ariens ezr1742 mower blades do not engage....noticed after went over a stump.


The common cause of this problem is that one of the safty switches has come dis-connected or has failed since most every newer mower has a electric clutch controlling the mower deck PTO there are safties bilt in under the seat and in other locations to make sure everything is ok before the blades engage, easiest way to test this is to run a jumper from the positive post of the battery to the input wire on the electric clutch assembly making sure all other wires ade dis-connected from the clutch and see if the blades engage if so then usint a continuity tester check all the wires and switches to this item to check for a faulty switch or broken wire. Thanks Don
