Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor 48" Deck, 23 Hp, Model# Yth2348

1 Answer

Engine runs fine til hot.

I have a John Deer 325 ride on mower with a Kawasaki FH531V engine.It runs fine til it gets hot. At that point it struggles to throttle back up when mower is engaged. Disengage and it seems to run fine. At times it blows back fuel thru the intake. Please help.

I think one of the intake valves, or a valve pushrod, is bent or warped. When the engine heats up, the metal expands and the valve starts sticking open. That would cause compression to be lost in one cylinder, reducing available power so things drag when you engage the blades. This would also causes air/fuel to be blown back through the intake. I think you'll need to take it to a small engine mechanic. Good luck! Please rate my solution if helpful, thanks.

Where is the fuse that runs from the p.t.o of a John Deer riding mower ?


Go to upstateoutdoorpowerequipment.com, look up your engine type not mower brand and you can get an illustrated parts view of it. If not in engine type parts view you can look it up in your mower brand. Engine will have a plate on it that gives engine info. Mower info is usually under the seat. If PTO is not engaging it usually means low battery charge or the PTO switch is bad.

Engine seems to run fine but when mower is engaged it loses power. It is a john deere 325.


Check to see if the mowing deck spins free or somewhat free with the engine off, It might be wrapped up with twine or something stopping from spinning, this will bog down the engine. Hope this helps.
