Question about John Deere Tractor Starter 285 345 2243 Lx178 188

1 Answer

A friend has a 345 John Deere Tractor mower with the Kawasaki Heavy Industrial water cooled engine. When he turns the key to the on position, the starter kicks in and the motor starts but the starter does not kick out. He has replaced the switch ( with the circuit board) and replaced the starter and solenoid. When in the 'ON' position, the wire to the solenoid is hot. Any sugestions? .

Sounds like solenoid is either wired wrong or is bad

SOURCE: INSTALLING THE MOWER DECK ON JOHN DEERE 345

Can't help you completely but I believe the brass colored bar coming from deck towards front should be on top of the black bar that puts the tension on. I had it on the bottom and the both bars ended up under the deck.

SOURCE: Hello my name is John. I have a 345 John Deere

345's have a habit of the choke sticking at the carb.Another problem they have is the fuel pump diaphram will crack and allow your engine to fill up with fuel,to much fuel in crankcase will end up past the rings when not running and smoke pretty bad when fired up.

SOURCE: problem with John Deere L120 tractor

Park brake switch is the most likely culprit,any other would cause the tractor to not turn over in the crank position.

You have dirt in the fuel tank and it sucks the dirt up on the filter that is attached to the pump. After the machine stalls, the dirt falls off and it will restart and run for a few min.

Do you have a wiring diagram for the starter on a John Deere 285 garden tractor? The old starter was removed and no wires were labeled.


Generally starters ground through the engine, so that only leaves the positive wire. That one comes from the starting solinoid. Starting solinoid gets power from the battery. Anyway these wires are the biggest ones on the machine including the negative/ground wire from the battery.

I hope this helps.

Water pump gear or the water pump impeller could have failed. If its the pump and due to it being at the bottom front side of the engine it would take some time for it to boil due to the fan is always pulling air down thru the radiator and its at the very top of engine. Cool water on top and really hot coolant around the cylinder with sensor. I'm sure it's the pump.

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.
