Question about Garden

1 Answer

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 or the board? I tested the fuel pump wires and at times it was receiving 12 volts and other times the voltage will vary 6, 8, etc. volts. Thanks

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!

1992 Chevy Astro won't run, will start up great with starting fluid, or let it sit overnight.

You need to check the fuel pump pressure and I would change the fuel filter in the process. Sounds like you may have a bad fuel pump.

check for the cooling fins around the head and block are not blocked with grass clippings/ dirt/dust as it may be tending to overheat and boiling off the fuel in the mixture

I have a F725 mower. Runs fine when 1st started, after approx an hour it stalls and stops running. Acts as if out of gas. Sometimes you can choke it and it will run a while longer. Changed fuel filter...

Could be ignition module overheating, but then the coke influence doesn't make sense. Once it quits try either a shot of starting fluid in the carb, or tiny bit of gas. If it runs then you know you have a fuel problem. Check to be sure the gas cap is venting and check to be sure you're not getting vapor lock after the motor gets so hot. You could also disconnect fuel line to be fuel pump is pumping. Does it have a kawasaki engine? Beware of some plastic cam gears.

Runs good for about an hour, then needs 15-30 minute rest period

When it's about to quit, quickly undo the gas cap. If it roars back to life, you have a vacuum problem, where the vents aren't letting air into the gas tank to replace the used fuel, so after a while, gravity isn't sufficient enough to pull gas from the tank until is sits and equalizes for a while.

Occasionaly the engine shuts off and won't start on JD gx345.

If the fuel pump is working correctly then the problem is between the tank and the pump. run a fuel line from the pump to a gas can. If the pump is working it will siphon the fuel into your filter. If the pump is fine then there is blockage, broken fuel line (sucking air), or something blocking the pick up inside the tank.
