John Deere 111 lawn tractor wiring diagram needed?
I'll try and locate one, but they tend to be fairly useless. Is there a specific problem you have that maybe we can resolve without the diagram? What's the year and serial number of the mower? Thanks, Ashley.Ashley39698.8364347222
It stopped while mowing yesterday. It would not engage the starter motor. Only the relay would click when I turned the key. Do I traced the voltages witha meter and when I traced through the relay, it clicked aagain, so I started the engine and went back to mow. However, when I switch on the PTO, the engine stalls. The clutch picks up and the blades turn, but the engine acts as if the ignition has been turned off.
Well this is going to be an interesting one I think. First off, do you have twelve volts at the battery? Have you used a continuity tester to check your ground? You say the relay clicked, are you talking about the solenoid? Have you checked the voltage at the solenoid? At the starter? At the ignition switch?
When you engage the pto, does the engine shut off immediately or does it run until you begin to mow?
I need the year and serial number of the mower and the model, type and serial number of the engine. Also if any work has been done on the mower lately or any other problems. Thanks, Ashley.
The operation of the starter system is intermittant. I did not find a problem when I was tracing the voltages from the battery, to the relay or at the starter. However, by opening the circuits to make voltage measurements, the problem resolved. However, the new problem was generated.
When I engage the PTO switch, the engine begins to die immediately. The blades turn, but slowly and unless I release the PTO switch back to off, the engine will stop.
The model is JOhn Deer 111. The serial number is XXXXX
The John Deere part number for the manual is TM1206, it's listed at $130 from John Deere. They have the manual on cd, part number TM1206cd listed at $65.00. If you go to Deere.com, then services and support, then technical/service publications you'll find it at the bottom of the list.
I would at first suspect some sort of ground issue. If the mower has an electric clutch on the crankshaft, this might cause the problem you describe, but I'd see that my battery to ground and my engine to ground is good first.
