2yr old x300 john deere riding lawn mower wont turn over

We let our mower sit this winter with the old gas in it and no stabilizer as the manual rec. when we attempt to start it it turns, but wont start up all the way and this last time smelled like it flooded. My husband changed the fuel filter, cleaned the tube coming and going from it and changed the plugs. Suggestions?

Anyone know what the the black plastic part is that is attached to the fuel line after the fuel filter? The manual doesn't say anything about that?

Lawnmowers; mine is not starting. First use this year I believe the fuel might be gummed up from sitting over winter. How do I clean this out?


When gasoline sits for an extended period of time the "varnish" builds up inside the carburetor and can keep your engine from running. If you suspect that this has happened, the only good solution is to first replace the carburetor, and then ALWAYS use a Fuel Stabilizer every time you buy gas for your lawn mower.

Also, at the end of a season, it is always a good idea to run the engine until it is dry and out of gas before storing the lawn mower over the winter. A fuel stabilizer should keep your gas fresh over the winter, and the lawn mower will start up quickly in the spring. If you are the cautious type, always buy fresh gas at the beginning of every season, and NEVER forget the fuel stabilizer no matter what. Gas starts turning bad after just 30 days....

John deere riding lawn mover doesn start, said, code 7.6


Gas is bad these days. If it's turning over but not starting, Pull the plugs and replace, they are cheap. Drain the gas out and add high test with no ethanol. Add a couple drops of a fuel jet cleaner. Turn it over a couple times. Don't panic if it does not start leave it sit overnight, then start. Check the gas filter and air filter as well. Nothing here expensive. Unlikely anything else wrong unless someone was paying with the carburetor or choke.

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.

ok a couple of things to try 1 try using starter fluid in carburetor 2 second spritz and crank does it fire or pop? if yes then there is spark, if not then pull spark plug and put new one and try again, if no then leave spark plug out of engine and lay on engine with wire connected and look for spark( do in shade to see better. if no spark then coil if bad. if it does fire on starter fluid, check gas filter and air cleaner it may be too lean or rich to fire properly.
