I have a john Deere stx38 yellow deck Kohler motor does this mower have any fuses that has anything to do with getting fire

Hello I'm wade No it doesn't! It is all ran by key switch. If you can remove air filter and spay starting fluid in engine if it starts then you having fuel delivery problem. Fuel shut-off solenoid usually sticks not causing fuel to get into engine and that solenoid is what kills the engine when key gets turned off. If you have any further question I'm here to help.

I have an older john deere stx38. engine starts and runs fine, engage the blades and and engine does not bog down. with the clutch engaged, the shifter moves through the gears smoothly. left the clutch...

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the automatic belt tension was blocked with grass so it was not tensioning the belt correctly. It was quite difficult to completely clean it but it has been fine ever since.

Stx38 won't start

Actually, this is a problem with many lawn tractors. John Deere makes a "Starter Assist Kit" that sells for about $25. After time, the electrical connections get a bit corroded and when you turn the key the solenoid doesn't get the full current it needs to be activated. I have made my own relay to overcome this problem on my STX38, have shared with many folks with positive results as well. Cost is about $5 total. If you still have this problem and would like a schematic of the "fix", go to:, go the the Lawn and Garden section, click on John Deere. When the page opens, search STX38 and look for the thread started by "Brad". Info is in there.

Good Luck.
