Aside from a deck adjustment gear, your mower may have a linkage that helps adjust the deck height. The linkage has a nut that you can tighten to raise the deck and loosen to lower the deck. If the metal linkage becomes damaged or seized, and you can`t make these adjustments, a new linkage is required.
Check your grass bag isn`t clogged

If the lining of your grass bag is clogged with old grass you should clean it using a jet wash, air line or simply a brush and water. Once clean the air should flow through the grass bag more efficiently and improve the grass collection.

For most effective results, a lawn mower deck should have a pitch of 1/8-inch to 1/2-inch between the height of the deck rear to the height of the deck front. Naturally, this makes the sweet spot about 1/4-inch of pitch, depending on the type of mower.
Mower deck gauge wheels should be properly adjusted to prevent scalping grass on uneven terrain. The bottom of the wheels should sit approximately 1/8-1/2 of an inch from the ground, depending on your cutting height.
Deck wheels prevent lawn scalping. They also help maintain a smooth cut on varying terrain. Deck wheels also aid in protecting decks from damage. Replaces Original Equipment parts starting with 734-04155, 734-04039 and 734-3058.
Remove the spark plug and scrape off caked-on grass from underneath the mower deck using a pry bar. To prevent grass buildup from sticking to your mower, spray the deck with non-stick cooking spray, silicone lubricant, or a rust protectant.

Have a john deere 318 riding lawn mower. it had been hard to start with it taking several turns of the key to do anything, then would not always engage. once engaged, would start with no problem. now when the key is turned, does nothing. checked 2 fuses near battery and tried jumping but no change. suspect starter and or solenoid. john deer shop claims starter price is $505 with almost 4 hrs labor too. is there good way to test to see if starter, solenoid, condenser, switch, etc is problem? what is the easiest way to access and remove the staqrter and solenoid? is there a relatively cheap equivalent to this starter and solenoid?
ANSWER : Usually the shop would make the fixing of an item to look so complicated this is usually to ensure that the customer comes back. To confirm if the starter is the cause of the machine not starting. tell the shop to check the machine if either of the 2 options are the cause of the problem as they will have setup procedures for doing this. Do not settle for cheaper equivalent as this will only cause further damage to the unit. It is rather concrete that starting problems are caused by the starter.Hope this has been helpful?

I have a Husqvarna LZ6127 zero turn mower, works hard on 50 acre farm, I was mowing last evening and it developed a nasty sounding rattle from the underside, I shut off the deck and noticed sparks from underside along pump belt, I lifted it today and the idler looks ok, I tried to start it while it was lifted and it turned a few times and then just clicked, starter won’t turn the engine over now, should I suspect the clutch?
ANSWER : This machine has a electro magnetic clutch,bolted to the end of the crankshaft, if the bearing in the centre has seized it would explain why the engine will not now crank, it relys on the crank turning on the bearing when the blade are not engaged, unfortunatley the clutch is non servicable, it is is part no. 539105406, check also the anti rotation bracket is still in place and fractured, this stops the clutch outer from spining with the centre, the clutch is just bolted on the end of the crank,remove the belt, you will have to loosen it by taking it off one of the blade pulleys, remove the 5/8 bolt, dissconnect the wiring connector, and pull the clutch off the end of the crank, if the bearing in the centre is solid, it will require a new clutch, be aware they can be expensive!.

Does the John Deere series 100 lawn tractor have some sort of safety feature that shuts the engine off if it gets dangerously low on oil? I was cutting grass this morning and the engine sputtered and quit. I got off the tractor and noticed that the oil drain line plug was open and dripping oil. Have I ruined my engine or can I refill it with oil and continue on?
ANSWER : Not sure on this specific mower, but oil is usually there to lubricate and keep the temp down. When theres none in it, it gets hot and melts the pistons. Sounds bad to me

The reverse pedal on my F525 John Deere lawn mower is not working. It is impossible for me to back up. The pedal goes down but does not activate the mower to go back.
ANSWER : Hi there,We are having the same problem, I followed the cable to the back part of the lawn mower by the battery. There is a small ram that the cable pushes in and back out when you release the peddle. I found that the top part of the ram was broken and there was no pressure to push the cable back in when the peddle is released. I have not found out how much the part is yet, looks to be an easy fix though. I hope this help..Chad

I have a 14 HP Kawasaki engine on my John Deere lawn mower (LX176). I have no spark.I’m guessing coil but unsure of how to test it. I get readings through the windings with an OHM meter but I don’t know what it should read. I wish I had a wiring diagram for the lawn mower to better analize the trouble. Suggestions?
ANSWER : All the “safety” engine-kill “features” on this mower will ground the ignition system, stopping the engine and causing a no-spark condition. Check the seat switch, the brake switch. Also, the circuit board will cause the problem you have if it gets rained on, (the mower hood does not protect it); point is do not let the mower get rained on (or washed) unless you protect the PC board, which is right behind the ignition switch. Mine dried out and worked again but only after liberal spraying with (plastic-safe) electronic parts cleaner. You are right the manual would help, it’s like $76 but it’s in depth. Good luck, and PLEASE tell us what the solution was!

Helpful Deere lx176, lx178, hood hinge tip: If the hood hinge is broken on yours like on most, Deere has a GREAT repair kit that’s only $10. They really priced it at cost or less to correct a defect they are aware of.
