How do I find a replacement electric motor for my Worx WG718 lawn mower?
WORX Lawnmowers seem to be incredibly unreliable, at least according to their own customer reviews. I found that Sears (one of their retailers) does carry some replacement parts, including motors, but often the models are updated, and beyond their 2 or 3 year warranty, the motors are discontinued. You may have to look for another WORX mower being sold for parts to acquire a working motor. Alternatively, keep checking EBay for a used motor. When operational, the WORX mowers are great, but with only a 2 to 3 year life expectancy, they are not the bargain they appear to be at first. Many customer reviews give high marks for the first year. Fewer for the second year, and by the third year, you'll be hard pressed to find a positive review of their mower products. I'm a WG780 owner: 2 years and my mower was shot too. WORX will not offer replacement motors, and will not offer repair service beyond their 2 or 3 year warranty (Two year warranty for machines sold prior to 2013; three year warranty after 2013) . Their operators will tell you that you'll need a new mower. Service during the warranty / Nothing afterwards.
