Just guessing but is there a reason you put fresh gas in it. Did it sit a long time with old gas in it?
If you want to see if its a gas problem, take out the spark plug and pour a little gas (teaspoon) in the hole and reinstall the plug and wire. If it tries to run for just for a little while and dies then your problem is something plugging the gas line or in the carb. If gas sat in it for a long period it turns to a green varnish and plugs up the jets in the carb.

I have a John Deere JS30 self propelled lawn mower I had issues with it running for 15 minutes and then it stops running. Was low on oil. Added oil over the full line now it runs for 3 min and dies


Wayne, correct your oil level to full line, change your spark plug and try mower. If still acting up after a couple minutes, the Gas cap vent may be plugged, remove or loosen cap to see if mower will run longer and better. If no improvement, the carburetor is dirty and needs cleaned or rebuilt.

John Deere Snowblower 1032 won't start. Obvious solution?


First dump the old gas and put in fresh. Clean or replace spark plug.
Put a squirt of starting fluid in the carb. If it fires the ignition system is good. Do this a few times because there is still old gas in the float bowl and fuel line. When the fresh gas gets to the carb it will stay running. If it did not fire with starting fluid the points and condensor will need to be replaced and maybe the coil.

STARTED AND RAN ROUGH AND WONT START AGAIN... NO SPARK


Drain gas completely from tank to ensure no water is in the tank, check for spark with spark tester, if no spark shows with spark tester, re check gap on coil, if points & condenser are present, sand down the gap between the points to ensure a proper connection. Make sure to change fuel filter with a high quality John Deere fuel filter and use fresh fuel... Fuel can "go bad" after 1-3 months, if the tractor is/ left outside chances are there is water in the tank.

21" Troy Built Self Propelled lawnmower engine won't start.


Remove spark plug, clean or replace. Remove air cleaner, clean or replace. Ensure oil is full. 30w. Drain old gas out of tank. Fill with fresh gas with Stabile added. Remove bowl from bottom of carb. clean. Observe bowl screw, see if hole goes thru screw. Clean out. Bread wrapper works nice. Observe float. Float down gas flow, float up no gas flow. Re-assemble, prime 3 times, pull rope 10 times to start. No start replace carb.

JS30 will start (sometimes) but cuts off within a few seconds. Fresh gas, new spark plug, and air filter have been installed. Cleaned bolt to float.


JS30 has a problem with the cutoff switch. The cable running to the lever on the
handlebar develops slack over time, and can be tightened up by pulling the
cable at the lever end. Manuver the pressed on end through the hole in the
lever til it locks on the point where the cable enters the pressed on piece. This
takes up enough slack to allow the switch to engage when the lever is pulled
back.

John deere 425 mower won't start


The ignition switch module is likely to be the problem,they seem to quit for no good reason.The safety relays and fuses are built into the board that comes with the switch and will most likely fix your problem.

The mower starts, buts runs sluggishly, and dies


Most common is a dirty air filter, followed by a plugged vent hole in the filler cap on the gas tank. Next would be fuel issues either in the supply line or in the carburetor.
Hope this helps, --W/D--
