If you have a fuel solenoid switch on the float bowl you can remove it and replace it with a plug. You can leave the plug disconnected. Did it to mine and it runs better than ever. I think the solenoid get s hot and shuts off the fuel

I'm not sure of the model number of your mower or engine to know the fuel and carburetor set up. I do have one easy thing to try though as it sounds as if a vacume is building up in the tank. Try putting a half of tank of gas in it, leave the gas cap off, and see if it continues as it was or if it runs ok. If this stops the issue your cap vent is pluged up. I hope this helps

Sounds like gummy gas. Try a shot of carburetor cleaner down the fuel line to the carburetor. Or take the carburetor apart and clean it, squirting through all the tiny holes and inspecting the float needle for abnormal wear. replace the float needle assembly if necessary.

John Deere LT 133 lawn tractor quits running after about 10 minutes.


Will it restart right away or does it have to cool down? If it has to cool down, then run it until it quits. Next remove the plug, reattach the plug wire, and ground the plug to the block. Finally try to start it with the key. If you get no spark or very weak spark then the ignition coil needs to be replaced.

Let me know how it goes.

John deere lt155 lawn tractor shuts off when it gets hot while mowing, could this be electrical?


I had a similar problem lasy year.
Try this:
As soon as the machine seems to be stalling, loosen the gas cap.
If the engine continues to run, clean the gas cap vent hole(s).

Stalls after 20 mins. of running fine. (Starving for gas)


From the rear of machine look at the top left of fuel tank for the fuel line.Where line comes out of tank see if it is pinched where it goes down between frame and tank,grab line and see if it moves freely.If that is OK loosen fuel cap after 10 minutes of run time to see if your vent hole in cap is working.These are 2 common problems for the L series mowers.

John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,


could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

Have a John Deere L111 lawn tractor with running problems


I had the same problem and I figured out that it was the small hole on top of the gas cap. There is a vent hole on the top/middle and this got plugged with debris and caused a vacum in the gas tank which caused the engine to sputter and kill. Good luck!
