Question about John Deere Garden

L100 John Deere mower will not engage...belt seems very loose but in good condition.

L100 John Deere mower will not engage. Was mowing lawn and went to re engage mower and nothing?? The lever to engage the mower has no resistance to it where before it did. The belt is in tact and looks good but is very loose. I tightened it and cleaned out any debris but still no luck. Any ideas? Is the lever that engages it purely mechanical?

Sounds like you may have a safety switch shutting down the PTO. Check them all as there may be a loose connection.

SOURCE: Electric Clutch want engage the mower deck on my l120 john deere

They wear out. How old is the mower? Mine just gave out this week in the peak of hay season. (my grass) The wire can be unhooked from the PTO clutch and a 12 volt jumper can test it, if it jumps, it is good, if not, it is shorted out, they are expensive, I found 3 of them all the wrong size for mine. Try to find the same one. Ebay has a couple on there right now. Check it out.

Blades won't engage on John Deere x540.


I would remove the PTO switch and have a Deere dealer test it. Also on the 500 series the PTO operates through the ignition control module which is under the dash, you can see it when you raise the hood. It is black and about 2" wide x 3" long and 1" thick.

GOOD MORNING, I HAVE A D140 JOHN DEERE LAWN MOW,IT RUN WELL WHEN NOT MOWING BUT WHEN ENGAGED IT SLOW DOWN AS THOUGH IT HAS TO CATCH IT'S BREATH LESS THAN THREE YEARS OLD


Make sure there isn't anything binding the deck belt or blades. Check the spindles for free movenent. If all that is good then it might be the linkage that is supposed to adjust the throttle when the engine is under load or it might be a carb issue...especially if you run ethanol gas in it.

The tractor has a cable connection and a tension spring that may have broken or has came off. It's hard to say for sure without seeing the mower or guiding someone over the phone as they are looking at things. If i can help further you or someone may call me at (831)578-4034 i live in California our time zone my be different.
