Small Engines (Lawn Mowers, etc.)/JDeere L110 17.5 Lawn mower
Expert: BEN - 3/18/2013
Question My Brother in law has a John Deere L110 17.5 Lawn mower he has changed the drive belt on(maybe he did something wrong with that) , now the problems are it shuts off when you engage the blades or puts it in reverse...he wants to know if the rear end has a gear, or what is going on with the mower please advise...
There is a safety switch that engages when you sit on the seat check that also there are a few other safety switches that wont allow the tractor to run or start if the PTO is in gear so check that also. I would try the seat switch first to make sure it is connected,usually these do not go bad but they can.You can do a by-pass test by unplugging the switch under the seat and inserting a wire in the two pins.This is just a way of testing and not a permanent fix.
I will answer most questions related to this field of small engine repairs,servicing them and trouble shooting problem.Can not answer questions with out the proper Engine Model#,Spec # and Manufacture.
Presently own a small engine repair shop and a Electrical contracting business.I have been in this field for 26 years.
