Question about Black & Decker 19" Electric Lawnhog Mulching Mower with Rear Bag
I was mowing along on Saturday and the mower just stopped. I removed the cover thinking the motor had blown, it did not smell as if it had blown. I replaced the switch in the handle and that did not help. I'm wondering if there is a fuse on this machine. Any Thoughts?
Mine stops like described above... but after I go to garage and dirnk 1/2 beer while watching NASCAR, then go back and mower works great.... but only for a few minutes on hot days. Results in lots of beer consumed, but great NASCAR covereage. On cooler days, it stops less often, but still stops. Results in less beer consumed, but I haven't a clue who won the Busch series today.
I thnk it's a temperature thing... but not sure about that. Sometimes works great, even on hot days; but not worth a crap on cold days. Go figure.
OTHERWISE, I love my cordless electric mower.... I just with I could mow the whole damn lawn without interuption.

Most (or all) electric motors have an overload device (heater) that detects high current in the copper windings of the motor. so if the motor is getting too hot, a thin piece of metal bends and breaks the circuit. after a while the thin piece of metal cools down, reconnects the circuit and it will start again until it overheats. overworking your motor will cause high current in the copper windings and hence the motor to stop working until it cools down.
Solution? replacing the heater in the motor may do the trick. that thin piece of metal can only bend so many times before it gets weak and/or faulty.
i am having a similar problem. i took off the cover, but it looks like the heater is internal on the 19" cm1000 motor. i'm not brave enough to tear open the motor itself..=(

I had a similar problem. My solution turned out to be the key. The metal part of the key was no longer lined up properly (I think I turned it too hard once). I took a pliers and set it correctly again, and have not a problem since.
