Re: I don't know how to thread the Craftsman Electric...
The center rotating disk contains two sets of holes, very near the center silver screw on my unit. The holes form two small tunnels through the black plastic. You cut two 10-12 inch pieces of heavy plastic weedwacker line and thread one piece through each tunnel. the loose ends are then poked through the large hole nearby so that each set of lines points straight out from the center. You end up with four cutting "blades" which revolve to cut up the leaves. The don't have to be attached...they stay in place as they rotate.. I could send you a picture but I think you will not need one. good luck, Vernon

I have used a DieHard portable battery charger (model 200.71222) for several years to recharge my 24-volt, 18-year old Craftsman mulcher, model 315.370270. This is after the on-board charger died. I just disconnect the link between the two 12-volt batteries and remove all other battery connections. Then connect the charger leads to the positive and negative terminals on one of the batteries before plugging in the charger. I put the settings on the charger at conventional low maintenance and 2 amps. Charge one battery and then the other (assuming you have two 12-volt sealed lead acid batteries like my mower). I use binder clips from an office supply store to hold the battery wires on the terminals when I'm mowing...makes it simpler to remove and reattach for charging instead of the nut-and-bolt connectors that came with the mower.
"Electric Start" means that it is started by an electric motor (the starter) which is powered by a BATTERY (the electric) much the same as a car. One does not PLUG it in. If it does not turn over when you turn the key, repost your question and include the Sears model number >>917.xxxxxx<< the x's being numbers 0 thru 9 off the tag on the back end of the mower near or under the seat and I will see if I can steer you to an operators manual for it
I have no idea if your problem is related to mine, but my B&D electric mower did the same. The cord worked on other equipment so wasn't a bad cord. It turned out I had to get a higher amp cord for the mower. Why it worked for a while on the other cord I don't know but I've had no further problems with it. The cord was expensive though.
Shot in the dark here. If the mulcher is tripping and needs to turned off then back on, it's defective and should be replaced. If the circuit breaker in your house panel is tripping, try to use different circuit on a 20 amp circuit breaker. If your using a plug that is controlled by a GFCI receptacle or breaker, move to a different plug. GFCI receptacles tend trip when motor loads are applied. These are my best guesses since I'm not sure what exactly you are reseting.
I have an electric weedwacker which may be different. In the leaf wacker there are four small holes very near the center screw on the revolving shaft. These holes form two small tunnels. cut two pieces of line (10-12 inches) and stick one through each tunnel. Center each line, put the two ends together and poke them out through the small hole on the edge of the rotating shaft. You end up with two sets of plastic line facing out from the central shaft. Flowtron may be different. Good luck.
