Question about John Deere 420,1020,2010,2020,2510,2520 Tractor Float

Open Question

My JD 110 TLB starts, runs for a few miniuts ant then the fuel solinoid relay chatters and the tractor quits. If I turn the key off then on when relay starts chattering, it clears the problem for a few miniuts, then same thing happens again. When I go to start it again the engine wont start untill I release the key from start position. next time it happens the fuel solinoid chatters and then does nothing. the ignition key no longer energizes the fuel solinoid. I installed a new/ ignition switch, fuel shutoff solinoid . I switched relays around and no difference. Please HELP me.

SOURCE: 1989 JD 2155 2WD tractor, cannot start engine,

Have you tried crossing the large post of the starter with the small terminal that has the engagement wire going to it[with the machine in neutral and the range lever in neutral if course].If this will make the tractor turn over then the problem is likely the neutral safety switch located under the panel that is covering the transmission just rear of the sticks.

SOURCE: john sabre ride on mower

Check to ensure the PTO/Mower drive is not engaged.. and the parking brake is on..

Most mowers will not crank if these are not in the right position

Most riding lawn mowers also have a kill switch under the seat... check that for proper function as well. If this switch has failed... it would kill the power.

You can use a volt ohm meter to trace the power.. it sounds as if all the right parts have been put in place as far as the basic starting circut is concerned.. yet you have another two to three switches to check for proper function.. PTO / Brake and Seat...

Check to see if you have power to the ignition switch.. then trace back to the battery to check for power there.. if your battery has plenty of power(12.4 volts).. sounds as if it should.. you need to check each of these interupt switches between the battery and the ignition. They typically kill the power to the points/actual ignition.

There are other areas to check.. poor grounds.. and bad connections are typical. a bad ground from the battery to the frame for instance.. check cable and point of connection.

Best of luck

There should be a switch in the clutch pedal area. Usually safety starts for tractors is that your clutch needs to be depressed to start engine and you need to be seated to turn blades. Good Luck....

You have the same M806808 fuel shut off solinoid as the 4000 series tractors. They use a timer/heater called a thermistor. This is common to your simptoms, I just dont see it for the 2305. Talk to your dealer, and ask him to look up a thermistor for your tractor.....Dont let him tell you have a fuel pump problem...Its a scam. Get back with me if they **** you around. The fuel shut off soleniod has three wires, you can check them for voltage. Just disconnect them and check voltage between the black and blue and the black and red. On the tractor side. You will have to crank the motor to start the timer circiut. after you start ( or just hit the key for 2 seconds) you should have voltage on the red ,during crank, and voltage on blue while the key is in the run position. If you do, the problem is in your soleniod. Remove it and do the same thing to confirm.

Have Bolens lawn tractor, 15.5 HP B&G engine 2005


It is a fuel cutoff solinoid, backfire prevention solinoid. If it fails then you will get no gas into carburetor. If you turn the key from off to run and it clicks then it is working, if it does not click then there is a problem.

My uncle has a john deere 111 and my dad turned it on and off apparently trying to get the key out and it hasn't worked since. What should my uncle do?


Is this the old JD 111 made from 1979-1986? I would guess that it was left out in the weather over the years and that is why the key was stuck. Check the ignition switch and the starting solinoid. That is where I would start. Let me know if that is it. If it still does not work, then there are other routes to go. I have a JD 111 from 1980 that was recently left to me. I tuned it up last year and it still runs good. That is a testament to the old JD's.

My JD X475 will run start and run fine for about an hour and then quit. The fuel filter is empty then. If I let it sit for about another hour it will start and then do the same. Could it be the electric...


Fuel pump could be getting weak, however I recommend to check the vent on the fuel cap. I have seen this many times with the JD machines. The tiny hole in the middle of the fuel cap gets clogged with debris and won't vent, causing the engine to vapor lock. Next time you have this condition, with the engine off, remove the cap for a few seconds and try to restart.
Good luck!

First, charge the battery.(Always do the easier things first). If that isnt the problem, take a DC volt meter and check the voltage where the battery connects to the solenoid. Then check the voltage on the starter side, while you turn the key,If there is a large voltage drop, or no voltage, replace the solenoid. If voltage okay, then check the starter. Good luck...Lee
