I assume this question is about an electric mower and not a breadmaker.

Electric mowers almost universally use a series wound brush-type motor which is inherently electrically very noisy so the internal insulation is very highly stressed. Voltage spikes, surges and transients on the mains supply do not help much either. Low quality motors are built for a short working life and while some will survive for a long time the majority of motors in budget equipment are soon thrown away along with the equipment because it is more economic to replace rather than repair.
Almost as common as motor problems is extension leads with a broken wire somewhere inside and these aren't the only possible problems.

The space here and the time and effort required to tell you how to check these things, starting by telling you how to use a multimeter, etc. is insufficient. Owning and using appliances is something for those with money or those with the know-how to carry out troubleshooting and a few repairs. I suggest you learn and there is no better way than to arrange for a circle of friends and neighbours who can teach you and/or help do the things you can't.

I have a 2006 Cub Cadet Push mower with a 5.5 160cc Honda Engine. I have never had any problems till last week. The engine started racing while mowing. I stoped the engine and checked the oil and air...


Replace engine, only 1 yr. warrenty. Engine about $119 at Harbor Freight. Easy to change out. all Harbor Freight engines are Hondas. Bolt pattern same. 160cc or 190cc will work. Remove blade, remove mounting screws, replace engine. Carb may be the same for throttle connections. Reinstall blade. 10 pulls required to start engine 1st time. 1 pull after that. Pull 1/2 way 4 times 1st to prime even if you use the primer bulb. Ensure oil is full, 30w oil. Excellent engines good for 7-8 yrs with proper maintenance. Observe cable connections before old engine removal. Take pics.

If you expect you old reliable to maintain perfect tune-up status after TWO years, you are expecting too much, it could be many small things. Do a complete inspection before changing so many parts.

"quadratic function" diophantus , a greek


Let x be Diophantus' age when he died.

His son died 4 years before Diophantus (so Diophantus was then x-4 years old). His son lived half as long as Diophantus so when he (son) died he was x/2.
Diophantus' son was born when Diophantus was (x-4)-x/2 years old. That was 5 years after his marriage so when Diophantus married he was (x-4)-x/2-5 years old. We also know that 1/6 of his life was spent in childhood, 1/12 in youth and 1/7 as bachelor so (x-4)-x/2-5=(1/6+1/12+1/7)x.
Now you solve last equation:
  • x-4-x/2-5=11/28x
  • x/2-11/28x=4+5
  • 3/28x=9
  • x=9*28/3=84 years

Diophantus was 84 years old when he died.

If you have never replaced the lamp it is most likely to be the problem.Most lamps last 2-3 years under normal use.

LTX1000 42" 18HP Kohler - Blowing fuse after 2-4 min mowing.


sounds as though you are on the right track
but be sure to check the wiring directly from the electric clutch on the front of the motor back to the switch
a wire could be pinched in the frame and shorting out intermittingly
look around and find those wires and move them around and look for chaffing and tightness
and what you could also do is to unhook the clutch at the connection to it at the front of the motor and engage switch and ride around and see if fuse blows and if not you may have an electric clutch issue

Engine stops after ~ 15 - 20 min of mowing


try changing the spark plugs. if that doesnt work check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes.
