Question about Electric Lawn Mower
Every time I have to turn the blade a little by hand before it will start. There is no smoke or smell or anything and the motor runs and cuts perfectly. The mower is about three months old.

The lawnmowers electric motor has a bad spot on the armature. You need to replace the electrical brushes that contact the motor. If you are lucky you may just need to clean them and reinsert them in to brush holders.

If it's like mine (MM 875), it has a plastic "clutch" that has little edges on it that broke off when I was chopping sticks with the mower ;-) Went to the local B&D place and got a new one for less than $3.
But now I'm worrying about the nut holding the blade on -- if I try to get it good and tight, the plastic "clutch" spins around off-kilter... Funny how I never even looked at the blade after I bought the mower used, but never worried about the blade being loose and flying off.

The generator makes the particular rotary cutting blades spin so that you can cut turf. Sometimes the particular cut grass penetrates the generator shaft and will either temperature it up to standstill or perhaps clog the particular motor. The motor needs to be checked for almost any foreign things, the armature needs to be rotated to find out if that moves openly.
A smoking rectifier is not good, it will need to be replaced.
The rectifier is required to switch AC (wall power) to unregulated DC.The brushes are the power input to the motor, with the slowing,the brushes are shorted to provide a dynamic break which quickly stops the blades. You will need to test the motor to see if that caused the rectifier to go.
I am not sure what the specs would be for resistance but it should be in the 10 ohm range for a 12 amp motor (120 volts/12 amps=10 ohms)
