Have your ESN and Engine Model on hand? Our ASE Certified Technicians can help find the right parts!
What Information is Needed to Receive a Quote?
When requesting a quote, our certified technicians will always ask you for these two things:
- Engine Serial Number
- Engine Model Code
Having this information ready to go will make things run more smoothly. It'll also guarantee you receive the correct parts! Read on to learn more about where your ESN is located and why you need it.
Engine Serial Number
You can find your ESN on a plate in your engine. Typically, with John Deere engines you'll find this plate on either side of the block. It can vary on which side depending on the model.
In the diagram above, your engine serial number is the 13-digit code next to the label "A." On your engine plate, you won't have each section labeled with letters, so just know it's the longer set of digits.
Finding this plate and recording the numbers will take you one step closer to purchasing the right parts!
Why Is My John Deere ESN Important?
Just your model number alone isn't always enough. We want to ensure you get the right parts, the first time. The engine serial number allows our techs to verify that the part you want will fit your engine correctly. This can save you time and money in returns.
When requesting a quote on our website, you'll notice a field titled Engine Serial Number/CPL. This is a required field for a reason, if it's left blank, we'll have to call you and verify.
To learn more about your John Deere, check out our Engine Serial Number blog, which breaks down what each digit of the part number means.
Engine Model Code
Your engine model code is another necessary piece of information our techs need to help you. If you look at the diagram above, the engine model can be found next to the letter "B." This number will have fewer digits compared to the ESN and is located close to the bottom.
