You do not give very much information on John Deere model so answers will have to be for general generic repair.


  • There could be more than one problem so if these suggestions do not solve your problem then a call or visit to your local John Deere store would probably be your next step as they will have any parts you may need and can tell you how to do the repairs.
  • This suggestion is from John Deere: Shut the engine off and if it's a manual PTO, make sure your deck engagement spring is connected correctly and if it's an electric PTO, again, check the belt. It could be your bearings and your spindle pockets, or spindles, have seized up.
  • All of these links have good information.

You can also contact John Deere about any problem and they will send information on repairs.
