Re: John Deere LA115 The traction drive belt is very loose. Normally I would replace the belt, but in this case I ha. ve reason to believe replacing the belt will not solve the problem. Actuating the deals does not cause the belt to tighten. WThe belt is a bit worn, but not so worn that it should not work. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thank you! Robert Wood

Well one easy way to find out is to get a replacement belt, try it, and if you have the same situation you can return that new belt and go back to the old one. There could be a few other things that many cause a loose belt like that, but they are unlikely. I would start with the belt if it were me personally, and then once you have confirmed a new one does or does not rectify the situation carry on from there.
Let me know, Tim

Where can i find a John Deere la115 wiring harness diagram?


The John Deere site has the wiring harness diagram on the LA115 parts diagram in the Electrical section (section 40, page 19). Start here: https://www.deere.com/en_US/parts/parts.page and select the Parts Catalog. http://jdpc.deere.com/jdpc/servlet/com.deere.u90490.partscatalog.view.servlets.HomePageServlet_Alt is where I ended up. The carburetor is in section 30 (Fuel and Air), page 10.

I hope this helps.

How to adjust tension on belt of John Deere Ride On D140


How to adjusted Cutting Deck Belt Tension

You do not say which size cutting deck you have. I will be writing about the 48", 3 blade cutting deck

The belt on this deck is self tensioned. The tension is provided by a spring attached to a moveable pulley on the deck. When the belt is in place you can manually force this pulley forward/backward and it will release the tension.

If the belt is off track, place the belt back around all the pulleys in the correct path, lastly force this spring loaded pulley forward/backward (depending on your deck, the direction is not important, the tension is) to get the belt around the pulley. If the belt is placed correctly, when you release the spring loaded pulley it will properly tension the belt.

Typically, these belts should not be jumping off. If yours is coming off frequently the belt may be worn. When they wear they get quite a bit longer, then the tension pulley cannot apply the correct tension. Rarely does the tension spring have to be replaced.

The other problem that causes belt jumping is worn spindles and stationary pulleys. The spindles are the most likely to need replacement. You can buy excellent replacements for JD spindles on Amazon for very reasonable prices. The following spindles are super replacement spindles for the 48" deck. They may very well be the same for smaller and larger decks; I have not researched that. Just search Amazon for Silver Streak # 285851.

John deere x300 will not move


It sounds to me like the traction drive belt slipped off of a pulley or broke. The easiest way to get to the traction belt is to remove the mower deck. There is no easy way to replace the belt, however. It runs from the transaxle at the rear to the engine at the front, around idlers. Let me know if you would like assistance in replacing the belt and I can walk you through it, Daniel.

I have googled LT155 and came upon john deere LT155 lawn tractor(noncurrent). It took me to John Deere's site. I put in your model number and it had several catagories. I would try the alphabetical list, go to B and look for traction belt.
Good day.
