My Atco Windsor electric mower won't start

The two Flickr photos show the switch. The motor will sometimes not start. The only way that it will is by applying a lot of pressure in the direction of the red arrows, waiting and then it may eventually start. And if it does start then it soon cuts out again.

SOURCE: Bright colors causes it to do crazy horizontal shifting.

It's always nice to have pictures when diagnosing a set over the internet. I've seen this problem before. I found CR14710 burnt and the focus block arcing from the bottom of the control. The capacitor and other components in the circuit should be replaced as well. They only cost a few cents and damage to them is a possibility. Hope this helps.

There may be a fault contact due to vibration check all the electrical wires and contacts if they are very well connected check corrosion point at contacts, use wd40 spray oil in the motor and contacts, there may be a fault in the carbon contacts to the rotor.

SOURCE: I have a problem with a Black and Decker electric

Hello blumph,

I can think of only one or two things that are causing your problems. It could either be approx. a $14.00 switch in the handle that has shorted out, or 2 bad brushes $1.75/ea.on the armature (motor). Both are fairly simple fixes with just a screwdriver and maybe pliers. You might also check and see if the power cord has been chafed or damaged and is shorting out. 

See below for parts:

    ATCO sit on mower. Engine cuts out when I engage the blade. Help? Maria

    Most sit on mowers and riding tractors have an "operator present" switch beneath the seat. If this switch is not activated then engaging the blade will cause motor shutdown - which is what you want if you fall off the mower or even stand up off the seat. The switch could be disconnected, defective, loose or messed up with dirt. Be sure this part is working and I'd expect you will have it fixed.

    My atco 12s electric mower will not start, power is getting to the switch ??

    Firstly how have you ascertained the power is getting to the switch?
    It is common on these mowers for the supply cable to brake inside the insulation just where it goes either into the plug which is then inserted into the switch assembly or if wired directly where the wire enters into the switch assembly .
    Insuring that the lead is plugged in to an RCB safety circuit breaker - hold the lead approximately a yard/meter from the switch ( check for any damage in the insulation before starting this test and before switching the power on) operate the switch on the mower and hold in the run position now move the flexi maintaining the yard/metre distance up the cable from the switchmove the flexi in all directions ifyou have any reaction from the motor on the mower this will almost certainly confirm the problem is indeed the flexi.
    All other testing should only be done by a suitably qualified electrician/service engineer

    Why do I need this for flickr???

    Flickr Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

    Flickr is a more sophisticated network, of where you share photos, and people rate them, using it like 'face book', could, if not will, make you unpopular, it is a great website for photo sharing, but it is taken very seriously by some people.

    From Flickr:
    "Tags are like keywords or labels that you add to a photo to make it easier to find later. You can tag a photo with phrases like "catherine yosemite hiking mountain trail." Later if you look for pictures of Catherine, you can just click that tag and get all photos that have been tagged that way."

    How to do this:
    1. When you upload photos to on step 3 you can add tags.
    2. On step 3, create the same tag for each of your photos (exp, "forgickr")
    3. After you finished upload all of you photos go to
    4. Enter your tag ("forgickr") and user name and then select all the photos you need for your slide show
    5. Press next and that's it!
    Let me know if you have any questions

    Good luck
