Electric Mower not working

    Craftsman lawn mower just bought last year and a half ago and smoked right in the middle of mowing. Engine went slow and onto the last leg of mowing, smoked and died. I pulled lever but nothing. unplugged right away and opened the engine area and noticed a pin missing on the center pole that rotates. One of the metal that rotates was detached and I could not find it . I probably need a new motor and if it is, then where , aside from Sears, can I get this ac motor ?

Check and see if the battery is actually charged. If the battery sits run down all winter they have a habit of not holding a charge. and needs replacing.

Hello blumph,

I can think of only one or two things that are causing your problems. It could either be approx. a $14.00 switch in the handle that has shorted out, or 2 bad brushes $1.75/ea.on the armature (motor). Both are fairly simple fixes with just a screwdriver and maybe pliers. You might also check and see if the power cord has been chafed or damaged and is shorting out.

Saw your post about Black and Decker MM525 Lawn Mower

Most lawn mower mfgs offer a mulching kit which usually consists of a metal plate to block the discharge opening and a mulching blade which just has a longer sharpenned cutting edge.
With a little labor you can make your own.
