I had the same thing happen. I got the tank out, but it wasn't easy. Take out the bolts out that hold the rear end on. Take off the two springs that support the seat. Take out the battery and the battery tray. Take out the 6 bolts that hold the black cowling and the front of the green platform to the frame. This will allow you to lift the seat platform far enough off the rear end to allow the tank to be pulled out through the side. You also have to remove the metal bracket which holds the front of the tank and has caused the tank to leak in the first place. New tank is $56.00 not installed. I used a soldering gun and melted the plastic back together. I think it will hold quit a while. I know this is a little sketchy, but It worked for me.

SOURCE: I have a lx 255 john deere wont start

You have a defective ignation coil. When the engine gets hot, the winding in the coil opens and the engine stops. After it cools down, it will again make contact and start again. If you don't know where the coil is, follow the wire from the spark plug. The spark plug wire is attached to the coil from the factory. It's easy to replace with a 1/4 inch socket set. Set the magnet to coil gap with a standard business card.

You may simply need a new fuel cap,vacuum in the tank will rob your fuel and stall it engine,try taking off the fuel cap and see how it runs.If this does not help you may need a new fuel pump,which runs off of crank case pressure and should take over from the choke once the tractor has started.

You may try blowing backwards from behind the fuel filter into the gas line. Not to much air pressure though. Make sure the gas cap is off.

Is this an older machine ? If so try finding the points its usualy on the front lower part of the engine behind the cover, if you see that then it needs its condensor replaced, lookes like a round battery.

If this is newer or you can also try changing the spark plug sometimes they heat up and fail.

My john deere L111 riding lawnmower starts fine but after running for 20 minutes, it just shuts down. Will not restart until it cools down. Any suggestion where to look.


I had this same problem with my John Deere LA140. I suspected that it was some sort of fuel delivery problem. Long story short, it turned out to be the gas cap was not venting properly, creating a vacuum in the fuel tank. The temporary fix was to loosen the cap when it starts to die. This relieves the vacuum and allows the gas to flow again. Installing a new cap on the tank fixed the problem.

I have a John Deere Generator which has always run fine. It was last run about 3 months ago and this weekend I started it up to find it smoking like crazy. The oil tank was full of gas. Any suggestions?


Sounds like the float mechanism in the carburetor lost control of the fuel level and let fuel run into the engine and into the oil sump. Is there a shut-off valve on the fuel tank? Be sure to change the oil before using the machine. Hope this helps!

Stalls after 20 mins. of running fine. (Starving for gas)


From the rear of machine look at the top left of fuel tank for the fuel line.Where line comes out of tank see if it is pinched where it goes down between frame and tank,grab line and see if it moves freely.If that is OK loosen fuel cap after 10 minutes of run time to see if your vent hole in cap is working.These are 2 common problems for the L series mowers.

John Deere 445 Garden Tractor, starts immediately,


could be bad gas, but it sounds like a choke problem. did it sit over the winter with less than a half tank of gas in it. try putting some rubbing alcohol in the fuel or draining the tank and disconnecting the gas line so you can drain the gas out of the carb. also check the gap of the spark plug and make sure that is correct. when was the last time there was fresh oil put in. also check the air filter, it could be full of dirt.

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--
