schematics for a John Deer

Recommended Posts

I used to be able to go to the John Deer web site and print out schematics for my lx188. Well now I can't seem to be able to do that. Currently my rider shuts down after about 30 minutes of running it. I think i need to put on a new carb, or at least try to clean it out. Any one have any ideas?

I think your problem is one of the safty switches, there are two, one under the seat and one on the mower switch. If either one of these is bad they will cut the voltage to the magnetic shut off on the bottom of the carb. and cut off the fuel supply. The one under the seat you can jumper across the two wires after it is unpluged to check if this switch is the cause of your trouble. Or as soon as the mower stops check for electric power where the wire fastens to the magnetic switch on the bottom of the carb. There is also a plastic moguale on the left side of the engine that gets soft and mushy from engine heat that will shut the engine down. Hope this helps.

Nothing sits like a deere. It seems like every other John Deere has the same problem. Here is the possibilites that aren't mentioned above.

1. Possibly the vent on the gas cap is clogged. You can try removing the gas cap to see if the problem goes away or clean the vent or replace the cap.

2. Delay module $15

3. Ingition moduel hope it's not this one because it's expensive right around $300 I believe. If it's this trade it off a get something that's made to last. This doesn't usually happen till after many hours. A good dealer will let you try out the part to see if this is the problem.

4. Carb/overheating problem

5.fuel filter or your tank filter not sure if the lx has a tank filter.

6. switch module flywheel

7. water temp module (if liquid cooled)

8. bad safety sitch

If it's not any of these I have some other ideas for yah.

If it does happen to be the ignition module i have seen someone before take a magnify glass and find the sodder connection that is broke and re-sodder it and it worked great.

No luck yet but I think I have it nailed down. I have noticed that my fuel filter empties real quick. I also have some sort of over flow valve on the carb that gas leaks out of. I have been told that it might be my float in the carb. well I am not the best at taking stuff apart and then get it back together again but I think I am going to give it a try. I still am not sure if I am going to try to re-build the carb or just replace it. That is why I would like some diagrams of it so I might have a shot in heck of putting it back together right. I am going to tare into this week.

Yes you might have a hole in the float. If you do it will fill up with gas and sink and the fuel will flow consistantly. I have brazed (sp) these many times. But i wouldn't think it would run good for a while and then quit if this was the problem. But I've been wrong before.

Reef if you have a "Good" dealer just go to the service tech and he will give you everything you need in diagrams.

Well I got the carb off last night. LOL Good luck getting that back on!! Hopefully I won't have to many problems with it. I took lots of pictures incase I forgot what spring went where and what thingamado went into what thingamahole. I did find the HSOforum that had the schematics I was looking for. So that is a good thing. Today I am going to head down to the local dealer and see how much a re-build kit is verses and new one all together.

    • Way to go!  That's persistence!
    • Way to go Britt!
    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
