Question about Greenworks 20" 12 Amp 3-in-1 Electric Mower, 25022

3 Answers

I hit a stump and it quit, won't restart. The blade turns freely, so that is not it. Ideas??

In a gas mower I would check the flywheel key, but don't know where to start with electric.

Make sure that electricity is reaching the motor. U might also want to check to see if when you hit the stump and stopped the motor that you did not burn out a safety device or fuse in line with the power to the motor. If that is open it will not run till repaired or replaced.

The moment of impact may also have dislocated one of the wires leading to the motor. Check that also.

U are working with electricity so u have to be careful.

Testimonial: "Thanks to all for these helpful ideas. As it turned out, I do not have a reset button, but when I was looking for it, found that the power cord light was out. The fuse on the power strip, which I always use as a double precaution with outdoor equipment, had flipped off. So it wasn't the lawnmower at all! Very relieved as I was counting $$$ when it wouldn't start. Your helpful suggestions led me to the solution, so thanks to all!!"

I have a Yard Machines/ Briggs & Stratton 675 series 190cc lawn mower. It started this morning then stopped. I replaced the spark plug now the pull/start cord won't pull, what could be the problem.


CHECK THE OIL. If oil level gets too low, the engine may seize due to excessive friction. Check the safety interlock cable for proper operation. Check under the mower for anything that may prevent the blade from turning. If the mower hit something hard like a stump, tree root, or a large stone then check the woodruff key where the flywheel slides onto the crankshaft (there is a notch in both the flywheel and the crankshaft where this key fits). If the notches are misaligned, then the key is sheared. If the key is sheared, remove the flywheel, replace the key, reinstall the flywheel.

My JD JS35 mower hit a stump and instantaneously stopped. It won't start. Occasionally it will fire once. What might be wrong?


Hi, it has most likely sheared the flywheel key and thrown the timing out. Also check that it has not bent the blade or crankshaft. Regards Phil.

My son hit the edge of a paving stone with the mower. He says that it killed the mower and then he could not restart it and that it was making a noise like the blade was hitting something when he tried. ...


Do not run it like it is. At a minimum you have partially sheared the flywheel key. That upsets the ignition timing. Remove the flywheel and inspect the key, replace if any damage whatsoever. The key is a little piece of soft metal that is designed to give way when you hit something hard. After repairing that, remove plug and turn the engine over by hand to see if anything is hitting in the engine. Probably could do that first to let you know how bad it is. If no unusual noises from the engine or knocking of parts, try turning over with pull cord checking again. Then you can put the plug in and attempt to start it after flywheel key replacement.

I hope this helps.

Everytime we hit low ground and stop the blades, it quits and won't start again. We took it in and the mechanic fixed it easy, but didn't tell us what he did. I caught bailing twine in it this evening...


I don;t know what kind of mower you have but if it is a push type mower where the blade is bolted directly to the engines crankshaft if you hit something solid enough to kill the engine it will sometimes shear the flywheel key. This throws the ignition timing off and the engine will not start. Hope this helps.

After hitting a low bearing tree stump with my troy bilt 6.75 push mower it bent the blade and now refuses to start. How do i fix it?


You will need to replace the key under the flywheel because it probably sheared when you hit the stump and you will need to replace the bent blade before starting the mower again.
I hope this helped

Flywheel moves then stops


if the engine only turns half a turn or so and feels like it hits something solid my guess is a broken conrod inside the motor(check your oil level??) dismantle engine to inspect damage
