Brand New John Deere E130 Won't Start

I just had it delivered and mowed for 30 minutes. I went over some tall grass and it shut off. I cleaned the grass from the blades. Now the machine won't start or even try to turn over. I checked the contacts for the battery and spark plug. No ideas.

If you just bought this, it is under warranty. Take it back and have them fix it. You will void the warranty if you repair this incorrectly

Thank you. I did just that. Cant get to me till the 5th. Luckily my buddy stopped by and knows mowers pretty well. He realized the solenoid for the parking switch doesnt make contact when I engage it. Told me to let the warranty cover it.

Best to check with the store where you bought it than to mess with it. You don't want to invalidate the warranty! Let me know what they say!

You can reference your manual and check the troubleshoot section.



Engine will not start

· Brake pedal not depressed.
· Mower Engagement Lever is in ENGAGED position.
· Spark plug wire is loose or disconnected.
· Improper fuel.
· Plugged fuel filter.
· Electrical problem - See Electrical Troubleshooting

But for me Id contact the manufacture and ask for a support to help you guide through the trouble youre having.

If not since its brand new contact the store you purchased from.

I just bought the same mower got 30 mins out of it but it started getting cloudy so I drove it in and turned it off. Sat for 2 days due to rain and now it won't start. Called Lowes and they're having a tech come look at it. I checked the spark plugs, charged the battery, fuze, etc. Not understanding how a brand new mower only gets 30 mins of runtime.... Anyone know of fixes?
