Question about Garden
Yes there is a switch.Its called "dead man switch"
Inside the black plastic housing that the "dead man" switch comes out of is a plunger switch that is pushed down by the "dead man" switch when it is pulled back. The plunger switch has four wires connected to it and is the "real" safety switch. If that plunger doesn't go down the circuit is not complete and the mower doesn't go.
you cut the wires to the plunger switch and connect them directly to each other. The plunger switch is built by INTAK, but searching for the part number directly on the Internet doesn't work very well. But it turns out other people have had problems with the plunger switch in Black & Decker electric mowers. Following that lead the replacement switches can be bought from DeWalt (which apparently owns Black & Decker). you can buy this switches for $12.
the on/off switch built into the handle. Basically it is a "dead man" switch which only allows the mower to run while you hold the spring backed handle in place. Taking your hands off the handle immediately cuts power to the mower. This can be a lifesaver (literally) if you notice you have just run over something like a rock or piece of glass which you missed in the yard before you started mowing.
