Black and decker mm675 lawn hog

I took the blade off of my b&D electric mower, but I cannot figure out how to lock the shaft to get the blade nut tight. Any ideas?

    i tried wedging the 2x4 in place but i could not get the lockwasher to slide into place. the blade axel would not stay far enough out for it to lock the axel while i turned the nut

    I have a similar problem, but I'm trying to get the blade *off* so I can replace it and the fan and the plastic blade insulator. The instruction manual says to use a 2x4 to keep the blade from turing. Well it keeps the blade from turning, but the shaft turns freely even when the blade is held in place with the 2x4. So the question is, how do I lock the shaft to loosen or tighten the nut when the blade does not hold the shaft like it's apparently supposed to do?

I'm not sure, but I think the little black plastic thing that holds your blade in place is damaged, I am having a similar problem where the shaft is spinning and not catching the blade. Now trying to replace that part the shaft was spinning with the nut I was trying to replace. I finally got it off by using a vice grip to hold the square metal and damaged plastic part in place while turning the nut. However now I am having a hell of a time finding the replacemet part that says right on it "replace if damaged"

    Found the part, it's called an insulator. you can find it at sears, I figured out exactly which part I needed for my model from the Black and Decker website. the one for my lawn hog mm875 is 241381-01

After you install the fan the next step is to install blade then plastic spacer either orange or black spacer then the metal washer and the nut. nut will fit the 2 flat side of the shaft hold it while tightining the nut.

You can use a pipe wrench on the shaft and a regular wrench on the nut. Disconnect your spark plug and tip the mower onto it's left side. You will have to use your left hand to go down through the mower shoot to hold the pipe wrench and your right hand to unbolt the the blade attaching bolt, it should come off immediately.
Remember you may have to purchase a new blade holder, since your problem shouldn't occur if your blade holder was OK. GOOD LUCK.

are you turning nut the right way ! on a lot of mowers, the nut turns off the opposite way the blade turns, to keep it tight. good-day ! Loosen the nut in the center of the blade with a wrench by turning the nut counterclockwise.

Black&Decker MM675 lawn mower height lever would not stay


I would look in my owners manual and get the part number for the height lever and order a new one. You could also try and wire the height lever so it can not move. I am not sure how it engages but you could may be try and bend the lever so it is tight and won't move. Just a couple of ideas.

Good luck
