Open Question

I have a John Deere L-118a riding mower. When I engage the blade, it won't turn until I lift the deck to its highest level. Then it mows fine. The blade won't turn when the deck is lowered.

SOURCE: john deere 111 mower deck. Lift is in stuck in highest position

Looked up detailed isometric diagram w/ parts denoted on John Deere website. FixYa website was a litele misleading. I did not realize that accessing a question posted "for free" would cost me something to get the answer. It's kind of like askin a neighbor as a neighbor to give you a hand and then he sends a bill.
Thanks but no thanks

GOOD MORNING, I HAVE A D140 JOHN DEERE LAWN MOW,IT RUN WELL WHEN NOT MOWING BUT WHEN ENGAGED IT SLOW DOWN AS THOUGH IT HAS TO CATCH IT'S BREATH LESS THAN THREE YEARS OLD


Make sure there isn't anything binding the deck belt or blades. Check the spindles for free movenent. If all that is good then it might be the linkage that is supposed to adjust the throttle when the engine is under load or it might be a carb issue...especially if you run ethanol gas in 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.

I have a John Deere SST16. The mower steers fine until I engage the mower blades then it will not steer anymore.


sounds like there is an obstuction, maybe from the deck, or deck hanger interfering with steering components

Problem with John Deere L120 tractor


Park brake switch is the most likely culprit,any other would cause the tractor to not turn over in the crank position.

My mowers cuts uneven I replaced the blades but it still cuts uneven how can I level it?


Park mower on a level flat surface ( a concrete garage floor is ideal ) lift deck up until you can put a piece of a 2x4 flat underneath the deck and lower deck until it just contacts the 2x4. loosen adjustment nuts or turnbuckles and adjust until the deck just starts to clear the 2x4. this should level your deck. Now , lift the deck and remove the 2x4. put blade height lever on a known cut length and with a tape measure, measure the tips of the blades from the floor to the blade tip...they should all be the same within 1/8 of an inch...if not then you either have a bent blade, bent spindle shaft, or spindle bolts are loose or misaligned. Your deck could be warped too...depending on how hard a lick it took...good luck !!! ;-D

I have a John Deere X304 that mows unevenly.


Make sure that your gauge wheels are not running on the ground during mowing,they should only hit the ground when you engage a high spot on one side.also when you level the deck the front should be a 1/2" lower than the rear.
