Question about John Deere Garden
Posted by Anonymous on
Search for part AM106852 but not sure its wise to spend over $100US on a carb for a 15 year old machine. Problem could be crankcase leak.
Should be able to find a different source for under $30. Look for numbers stamped on the carb and internet search those numbers for a different source.

Hi, You have gum or old gas in the main jet on the carb, turn your fuel off, stand the snowblower on the front blower housing with handles in the air, remove main jet from the bottom of the carb and clean. Jim

A very common problem with the GX series with Kawasaki engines. The carburetor 'inlet needle' sticks open and fills the crankcase with fuel. When checking the oil, it can be difficult to see the gasoline and the level appears to be OK. Remove the dipstick and smell the oil, you may detect a gasoline smell. Also, drain the oil, and you may find much more fluid than you expect.
The solution on newer mowers was to install an 'in-line' shut-off valve to keep the fuel from syphoning into the carburetor. The inlet needle and seat in the carburetor is NOT replaceable, so a new carburetor is the ultimate solution, but VERY expensive. Installing and using an in-line shut-off valve is more affordable.
Also, this situation is common when machine is transported on a trailer, as the bouncing causes the needle/seat to leak. When transporting, always turn off the fuel supply to the carburetor.

The H (High Speed) and L (low Speed) should not typically need adjustment. What happens is the diaphragms get stiff and do not operate efficiently. If the unit is over 5 years old and/or the fuel is not completely drained with the unit run dry at the end of the fall, then I would suggest replacing the diaphragms within the carburetor. This along with spark plug change, air filter cleaning and a check of the muffler to insure it is not clogged is considered a basic tune-up.
