Question about John Deere 420,1020,2010,2020,2510,2520 Tractor Float

1 Answer

John Deere 318 blades won't engage once it gets hot.

Once you let it set for a while, the blades will kick in but then the battery light lights up and stays lit. It will then mow fine until I finish.

Check the clutch gap in the front of the machine (the one that engages the belt) by tightening or loosening three lock nuts around clutch. Tightening decreases gap/ loosening increases gap. Note: do not tighten too far as it will result in clutch drag or lockup! Stop when its just starting to touch then back off slightly. Also without a proper charge on the battery the magnetic power for the clutch is altered and not strong enough to engage clutch when hot. Find out why battery light is on.

My 318 John Deere mower blades would not turnoff. The switch would not move. Even when I got off the seat the mower blades continued. I turned the motor off and now it won't start. Any idea?


Faulty attachmentment switch, replace it as it is sending a signal that it is engaged to your starter circuit, that is why it wont start.
It is also faulty as it wont engage the attachment (mower cutting deck)

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.

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.
