The John Deere L130 lawn and garden tractor has a service timer on the dashboard to remind you to do maintenance and keep your mower in top running condition. The reminder system activates and blinking based the number of hours of mower operation (commonly every 50 hours). The timer must be reset to indicate when another service interval is required and to keep on schedule.
How to Reset the Service Timer on a John Deere L130
- Drive your John Deere L130 to a flat area in the lawn or on a driveway. Move the throttle lever to slow, and allow the engine to run at a slow idle for a few seconds. Turn the ignition key to the "Stop" position. Engage the parking brake.
- Perform the service on the engine or mower according to the owner's manual service intervals and the maintenance schedule that is listed under the seat.
- Turn the ignition key to the "Run" position, but do not start the engine. Leave the key in this position for two hours, then turn the ignition key to the "Stop" position and remove the key. The service timer system will reset and come on when the next service interval is reached.
