SOURCE: John Deere Gx75, kawasaki 9hp motor- oil in carb!

A very common problem with the GX series with Kawasaki engines. The carburetor 'inlet needle' sticks open and fills the crankcase with fuel. When checking the oil, it can be difficult to see the gasoline and the level appears to be OK. Remove the dipstick and smell the oil, you may detect a gasoline smell. Also, drain the oil, and you may find much more fluid than you expect.
The solution on newer mowers was to install an 'in-line' shut-off valve to keep the fuel from syphoning into the carburetor. The inlet needle and seat in the carburetor is NOT replaceable, so a new carburetor is the ultimate solution, but VERY expensive. Installing and using an in-line shut-off valve is more affordable.
Also, this situation is common when machine is transported on a trailer, as the bouncing causes the needle/seat to leak. When transporting, always turn off the fuel supply to the carburetor.

SOURCE: John Deere Lawn Tractor LX176. Battery discharge

Locate voltage regulator above battery to the left as you sit on machine,its behind frame that supports steering wheel.Once you have found it use a light to shine on harness and follow the brown wire that leads into regulator.The plastic around that wire should not be burnt or showing any other color.The LX series machines had a problem with brown wire coming loose and causing the charging light to stay on.Remove plug from reg and use small screwdriver to clean out wire and work it a little so it makes good contact.

SOURCE: Starter solenoid on John Deere (Kawasaki) 17 hp engine

It hooks onto the fork.
NOTE: Remove the plunger from the solenoid.
Move the gear to position the fork as close to the solenoid plunger as possible.
Hook over the fork,
Re-insert plunger into solenoid
'a light film of grease could be applied to the plunger, but not TOO much'

John deere x540 with140 hours. Jump started from storage and cut 2 hours without issue. would not crank back up. Installed new battery and checked fuses. Lights and all come on but will not crank.


would not crank Chet, Relay,Solenoid or starter may be defective, give the starter a sharp bang with a hammer, to see if it is stuck.

My John Deere only starts with a hammer. I have the Kawasaki engine and it is famous for bad starters, so I carry a hammer and tap on the bolt when I want to start it. So, you either have a bad solenoid in your starter, or the contacts are dirty, battery connections are dirty. Or the battery is dieing. Check it out. Hope this helps.

John Deere 185 Hydro won't stay charged


I had the same problem on my lx176. Check all your connections first. If they are all ok and fuse and fuse link are ok, unplug your magneto connector. Mine is a 2 prong plug by the dipstick tube. Connect a voltmeter to the engine side of the magneto and set it to AC VOLTAGE SETTING.. With the engine running I think I remember it should be putting out about 30 volts AC. If you have close to this voltage there it is probably your voltage regulator. Mine was. Hope this helps
