Question about John Deere Garden

1 Answer

Lack of power after running for 15-20 minutes.

After using the John Deere X300 for a while (15-20 minutes), it doesn't have as much power. A hill that I normally climb is impossible to climb after the mower has been run for a while. It isn't that the ground is wet and the wheels are spinning, it just won't make it up the hill.

It sounds as though the ground travel belt (Drive belt) is slipping, you didn't mention the engine was bogging down so that is what comes to mind first. adjust the tension or replace the belt and if it is slipping that will remedy the issue.

My john deere 316 loses power going up hills and when I have the mower pot on

Sounds very much like a fuel issue, i.e., starving for fuel. Check the fuel filter and replace.

I have a L130 and after it warms up it starts to whine and won't go up a hill.

Is the belt going tight enough when the drive is engaged make sure it is not slipping or you may have a rear drive problem.

I have a John Deere LA150 that will not go steep

I have the same problem same year, same model. I changed the drive belt and it still won't go up steep hills that it used to easily climb. I don't see any way to adjust tension and it doesn't cover that in the operator's manual. What did you find out with yours?
