For some time it has not wanted to crank up when you turn off the motor after using it a while. After it sits a while ,maybe an hour or so it will then crank right up

The filters were changed a couple months ago. The mower is appromimatly 11 years old. I hav to check the hours on it in the morn. Can I still get an answer then without more money?

I don't request money from you. That is the website and just answer. I'm a independent John Deere expert that works for the site

Here is where you're going to want to check. After you have shut the mower down lets make sure that the blasdes are fully disengaging. If not this will give you a hard start condtion. Look at the drive belt from the engine to the mower deck to make sure it is loose when you disenegage mowing. Next look under the mower deck to make sure nothing is wrapped in the blades
