I have a Deere X360 lawn mower. Mower runs good for 15

Customer Question

I have a John Deere X360 lawn mower. Mower runs good for 15 minutes and the loses power. I cleaned the gas tank, changed fuel pump and fuel filter. It still looses power after 15 minutes and barely cuts. How can we fix the problem?

Does this model operate on a computer system? If so, could the computer be faulty?

No it does not I would replace the spark plugs first if that does not fix the issue you may have to replace the coil packs they could be heating up and not working

Any update yet?

coil packs were the answer. Night and day difference in how the lawn mower performs. Both mechanics ( John Deere dealer mechanic & my local mechanic) could not solve the problem. My mechanic was very reluctant to try your suggestion but he was amazed that it worked. Thanks, ***** ***** my lawn mower.
Is this a common problem with the X360 lawn mower?
Expert:  Bradley Martin replied 2 months ago.
It is a normal issue when engines start to sputter after the engine is warm I would not say it is a typical problem with the x360 the x360 is a good mower glad we got you mower running good again let me know if you have anymore questions
