Dear Mr. Connolly:
I sincerely apologize for your experience. Fire is not covered by John Deere warranty.
Fire causation is difficult to determine. Our dealers are not trained to determine the cause of a fire. If you have not already done so, please contact your homeowner's insurance company, as the agent you spoke with instructed. This way you will receive an unbiased opinion. They have experts who are trained to determine the cause of the fire.
If you have further questions, please call our center.

After calling again.. and filling out another fire
report...and after getting a $865.16 bill for
repair of the tractor.. And being told that John Deere
will offer no compensation at all.. I just wanted to
let you know that John Deere has lost a valued
customer.. The "nothing runs like a deere" slogan
means nothing without you backing up your product..
I can't express my feelings I now have.. I will do my
research while looking for a new tractor.. I will
hope that Cub Cadet or Ariens and Kabota are willing
to take care of customers
