Question about Flowtron LE-900 Leaf-Eater Mulcher

1 Answer

Flowtron LE 900, The Ultimate Mulcher, just quit

I found that the new cutting string had wrapped around under the spool. I cleared it. I checked my circuit breakers. The machine just won't go back on. Is there an internal breaker to reset? Is there an internal fuse?

    I fixed my own. So far. Tilted it up and found the remains of a reset button by the label on the switch side. It goes. Doesn't like sticks, though; they tear up the string.

I found a reset switch on the leaf-chipper. I was then careful to fill it more slowly, and to keep out sticks and clumps of wet leaves.

The motor burned out after one year of use. It was bought in Oct 2009. This year in Oct. it burned up in about 10 min. How can I get a replacement motor? I took it apart, cleaned it, reassembled it...


I would recommend contacting the manufacturer. The warranty was 1 year. If you are at 13 -14 months, I would ask Flowtron for some help in getting it replaced. Sometimes manufacturers are willing to split the cost of a repair that is near the warrany end to help keep a customer satisfied. It is worth trying.
Good luck.

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.

How do you intall the cutting string on a Flowtron leaf eater?


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.

Reload cord.


I just replaced my Flowtron cutting string. That screw in the middle comes off if you turn it hard enough. Then the spool lifted off. I took it to the hardware store to get the right gage string, and installed it like the old. It was curly though, and got caught under the spool when I used it. Then the motor quit and won't start. So I just posted that problem. ~ CarolK

Circuit breaker


I was able to get a replacement 5 amp MB-1 push to reset circuit breaker for my Flowtron LE-900 directly from Snap Action http://snapaction.net/ for no replacement cost and no shipping/handling cost. No one at Snap Action enquired as to what it was for, age, warranty, etc. (their MB1 product description indicates it to have a lifetime guarantee). I just had to mail them the defective original breaker - took about 2 weeks to receive the replacement.

Mulchers storage


when its empty you can store anywhere you like but when its full try and keep in open place due to smell that may burst from the mulcher.
