schematics for a John Deer

10 posts in this topic

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.

    • Think we should change the topic to "Trump for Trees."
    • Had to go all the way back to Missouri to hunt in the snow this year! Beautiful morning but not much movement. Did see some late rut activity Friday.
    • Dotch, you guys over there are almost famous....   Almost because it is Waseca, but whatever.    Mark Seeley's weather blog... http://blog-weathertalk.extension.umn.edu/   .... Waseca now reports 54.13 inches of precipitation for 2016 and this is a new statewide annual precipitation record, surpassing the old one of 53.52" at St Francis (Anoka County) in 1991.
      ....   And an interesting thought...(from Mark, not me) Commentary on Winter TIME: No question will be answered this week, but I want to take TIME to make a comment about Winter TIME. Managing the TIME in the Winter Season in Minnesota is a different ball game than other seasons of the year, because everything takes longer. No question winter will be felt more frequently soon in the daily weather, and snowfalls will become more frequent this month. The rash of bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicular accidents reported during the snow storms towards the end of November reminded me about adjusting for Winter TIME. Our concept of time needs to be adjusted. Lengthen the time intervals that you have intuitively built-into your everyday habits and tasks. It takes longer to walk places, longer to drive places, longer to dress and undress, longer to warm up the car, longer to degomble (shed snow) when you come into the house. You need to make time to shovel snow, scrape the windshield, clean the furnace filters, When you walk take shorter steps and not too fast...put the boots, gloves and hat on when you go outside....check on the neighbor if their place hasn't been shoveled...everything should slow down..except for the long Minnesota goodbye..that is better shortened...just say goodbye, open the door, leave and close the door behind you....no need to stand in an open doorway for minutes conversing about last minute stuff. Winter TIME is an adjustment that may save you anxiety, regret, or even injury.
    • Would you use a bobber on your rattle reel with these? I would think a lively minnow would pull the line out of the contacts.
    • My my, how the mighty have fallen...  I went back to the thread on the cook subsidy, and what did I find in the second post from you, on the second page....     Gee, you were ok with the 66 million because it wasn't a stadium or something, but now all butt hurt over 7 million of Indiana money?    Now that there is a funny joke.  
    • Thanks to everyone who replied. Lots of good advice. I'll start with an electrician and go from there.
    • Is there some type of frame or carriage that bolt to machine?  Or do the extra wheels just "float" back there?
    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.
