Question about Poulan Garden

Open Question

The deck on my Poulan XT 12530 will not adjust correctly. It should/did raise & lower the deck from position 1 to position 6. Now it won't go down past 2 and won't go up higher than position 4. At position 2, the deck is cocked with the left side on the ground and the right side up to about where position 4 should be. PLEASE, how do I adjust it back to working correctly? Thanks, Steve.

My blade adjustment lever is stuck in the highest position


Hi Cindy:
Blade height is achieved by raising or lowering the deck so it sounds like you really only may have one problem.
If the height adjustment lever is stuck and will not move, it should be fairly straightforward to look at the various components to see where it is binding, and then make corrections as necessary.
Safety First. Have the engine OFF and the key removed before you start exploring the bits.
Cheerfuls.

I have a John Deere LX178 lawn tractor and the mower deck will not raise/lower. It is all the way down and pushing in the button is how i've ALWAYS adjusted the height. It will not budge


1) NEVER adjust to where the deck wheels touch the ground. The wheels are to ride 1/4" off the ground. 2) The long lever to your left which raises & lowers the deck has 3 settings. 1- Fully back toward you which has the deck raised (called transport mode). 2- Halfway down which is the normal mowing mode (called float mode) 3- Fully away from you which sets the deck fully on the ground. This mode is ONLY used for VERY rough terrain where the deck risks getting pushed into "transport" or "full up" mode & getting stuck there. 3) On front-to-back tilt, the front should be 1/2inch lower than the back for least damage to the grass. Ok-now to adjust "cutting" height. 1) Park on a level, flat surface. 2) Pull the deck lever fully back toward you to put the deck into "transport" mode. 3) twist the "cutting" height knob (just below your seat) to the height you want the grass cut. Has choices by 1/2" increments from 1" to 3.5". The deck in "transport" mode is 4". 4) Lower the deck lever to the midway/"floating" mode point. 5) Adjust each deck wheel with its own peg & pin to have at least 1/4" clearance from ground. Thats it for "cutting height" adjustments

Why can't I raise or lower the deck?


Sounds like you have jammed linkages which raise and lower deck, you can try this which usually works best with assistant.
With engine off, shake the deck vigorously (up,down, back and forth) while try to raise deck with lever.
Check for worn or damaged arms, springs, deck mounting points, etc and repair or replace.

John deere 855-70 manual


On ALL Deere riding lawn mowers, 1st, position the deck under the tractor. Depending on the belt drive: either PTO (the yellow button on the dash panel), or tension engaged-(a lever on the right side of the operator\'s seat), you loop the drive belt from the front of the deck to the pulley, always in the lower front area of the tractor\'s engine. If it has "beltguards" too close to the pulley, you must loosen the retaining bolt for the guard, it will allow the belt to squeeze by and onto the pulley. Then, 2nd but don\'t forget to retighten after slipping the belt on, push the "Deck heighth" lever fwd to drop the deck "hangars" at the rear of the deck into position to "pin" the eyelets with the supplied pins, washers and keepers: usually a cotter pin or a lynchpin that inserts thru a hole on the smooth bolt-pin. The easy part\'s over, but don\'t panic. 3rd, lift the front of the deck onto a block, allowing a heighth to apply the "adjusting rod" into the front of the mower chassis. Screw the retaining nut onto the threaded (long bolt) and remove the block. You\'re done. Next, and very important, RAISE & LOWER the deck, engage the belt tension, (here you may have to clear the area and start the engine to engage the PTO drive, if it\'s electronically controlled belt-drive), this assures nothing is "misaligned" or improperly positioned. Now, if the machine is on a flat surface, lower the deck to a point just above the ground and measure the distance in four (4) corners of the deck and record the ht. Make the adjustments to LEVEL the deck. Now you\'re ready to start the engine from the operator\'s seat, slightly increase the engine from idle to 1/4 throttle speed so that engaging the drive belt won\'t kill the engine. Ensure the belts run smoothly, the blades turn, and the engine doesn\'t "bog". Lower the deck to a desired cutting ht., now MOW the grass!

The deck on my mower is lower on one side than the other. Is there a way to raise it up? It is tearing my yard up and scalping. I have a craftsman 15hp 42inch cut command. Any help would be appreciated...


To adjust a Craftsman deck, raise the deck to the normal cutting height.
Measure to the flange on the deck on the right & left sides. It is easier to lower the deck than to raise it, so, on the high side, find the threaded rod that supports the deck. Using a wrench, back off of the nut (counterclockwise as viewed from the end of the rod) until both the left & right sides of the deck are the same height.
Be sure your tires are properly inflated before measuring.

I have an Insight DK614 Tredmill that will not run. It displays an error message "E6" and the running deck will not lower. The motor is still running albeit at a much lower rate. No movement...


E6 or E7 An E6 or E7 error code is an incline error code. The E7 code means the potentiometer value the console is reading from the lift motor is out of range. This can happen when there is a bad wire harness connection or a damaged wire harness. It could also just mean the incline motor needs to be adjusted back into range. If all wire connections look ok, the incline motor will need to be adjusted.
  1. Turn the power OFF, wait for 5-seconds and turn back ON.
  2. Get into test mode and enter through the I/O testing step. This screen will display the potentiometer value of the incline motor. Different models will have different values. Check to see if the running deck is raised to high incline level or if it is at the low level. If the running deck is at a low position press the incline up button. This will cause the incline motor to raise the running deck up. When the deck gets to a mid-level position, press the incline up button a second time to stop the deck. If the running deck is in a high incline position, use the incline down button to adjust the deck to a mid-level position.
  3. Once the unit is in the mid-level position, power the treadmill off for 5-seconds and then power it back ON.
  4. Start the treadmill.
  5. Once the treadmill starts the running deck will move to the level 0 position. If this does not resolve the issue or it will not adjust please contact customer service.
Also, note that not all models will have the ability to adjust the incline motor. If the adjustment procedure is not found in the Owner's Manual then contact customer service. Treadmill Error Codes Troubleshooting

Replaced deck belt and it keeps coming off,whats wrong?


The belt tensioners on top of the deck need adjusted, or you make have to adjust the pulleys to tighten the belt. Sometimes if you have the deck lowered to low to the ground, uneven terain can cause that. If you have everything adjusted correctly, simply raise the deck another notch and mow.
