Question about Black & Decker 19" Electric Lawnhog Mulching Mower with Rear Bag

1 Answer

Breaker Blower I have a 19" Black & Decker Lawn Hog (Plug-In) mower. It operates but appears to be drawing more than its 13.5A rating. It will run for a few seconds, then will blow the 15A breaker on my main panel. Has anyone else encountered this? Is this indicative of a failed electric motor? Is it even worth fixing?

If its rated at 13.5 amps, then you should be operating it on a 20 amp circuit. Also, you need to use a 14 gauge extension cord, otherwise the voltage drop on the extension cord causes the motor current to rise

There are a few sellers on ebay for this switch (search for 681064). Some only ship to the USA.
According to some websites, Sears also uses the same switch for their Craftsman electric lawn mowers.

Mower tripped outlet breaker - wiring schematic available?


I had a MM875 go out after some months' service -- it actually went out with a bit of a bang. The problem was a shorted circuit; the weather was hot and the "solid state switch" on top of the motor shorted out. This part wasn't a switch but a bridge rectifier. The original part was specified a bit close to its actual working limits so I bought another (from Radio Shack, no less) that was higher rating -- something like 30 amps at 200 or 400 volts. ITs worked for years.

If it is a bridge then it will have two terminals labelled '~' and one each with the '+' and '-'. The plus and minus go to the motor (keep those connections the same as the original) and the others go to the supply wires.

Mower won't start


13 to 15 amps electric or battery operated mower may runs slow when cutting thick grass. also recommended not to cut grass when it's wet & need very sharp blade to do the lawn. may overloading it, cutting grass too thick also draws too much power. check house breaker first.
