Common John Deere transmission issues can vary by model, but a typical issue is the machine not moving with the engine running. One cause of this issue is the transmission oil being low.
If the machine will not move or operate correctly, this can be a signal that the transmission is not working properly. If the transmission oil is too cold, it can result in the machine not working correctly. In cold weather it is advised that the engine be allowed to warm up before the machine is used.
Transmission issues should be diagnosed by a John Deere repair retailer. Transmissions are sealed components. Pump drive belts that have slipped or are damaged may result in the machine not moving when the engine is running. If the mower blades are unbalanced, this can cause the machine not to operate correctly.
