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

Lawn edger stops working after 2 uses

The machine just stopped working in the middle of the 2nd job. A deaf friend was using it, but I was right there and did not hear any seizing etc. It's like there is no electricity going to the machine even though there is. The Home Depot guy told me that they may have a fuse. Is this true?

    Well I was wondering if the Black and Decker Edger (This place would not let me post under the actual correct equipement name as it is NOT what is shown at the top of the post but strictly the "lawn Edger" only). Anyway, I was wondering if this piece of equipment has a breaker box" I haven't taken it apart to look yet but I was wondering about fuses with the way it just shut off, dead. Thanks Christine

Did you check your breaker box? Mine sometimes blows the house fuse if I hit a big rock or something. I've never had any problems with internal fuses and I've owned mine for 3 or 4 years. Also, you may have to check the armature (the part that spins inside.) I had the same problem with my dremel tool. It's all magnetic and if the electrical current gets disrupted, the armature won't spin.

On my trroy-bilt lawn tractor pony i was in high grass it seem to stop cutting smoke came from the deck stop cutting the handle that engage the blade become reaaly easy to move nothing happened

It sounds like you got into a job that was too big for the machine, and you may have either burned up the drive belt, or toasted the transmission or clutch.
Someone knowledgeable about such things should be able to raise it up in the air and look underneath and discover which problem you have.
God bless your efforts.

Why did Craftsman LT2000 stopped moving? Engine starts and blade engages fine.

The transmission drive belt is a separate one from the blade belt. The clutch pedal when released puts tension on the transmission drive belt so it tightens up and drives the gearbox pulley by way of a large spring. Make sure the spring is ok. The belts don't last forever and probably needs replacing looking at the age of the machine. That is a fun job as it is right up under the machine and runs from the engine pulley right back to the top of the transmission. You have to drop the deck right off and I usually find a tree with a large branch and haul the front up with a rope or winch so the mower is vertical. Makes it easier to work on. Drain petrol first though. Hope this helps otherwise get a mower shop to do it for you if you feel it's to much of a task. Good luck.

check that you can turn the cutters by hand . I suspect that the bearings for the cutters may have seized up from the wet grass causing them to rust up

If the motor isn't charging the battery as you work then it will gradually discharge while the engine is running. A faulty battery will also not hold a charge. Make sure the charging circuit is OK and get the battery tested at your local dealer.

Why does my lawn tractor tractor rev way up when the throttle is on slow and the choke is off?

There are several things that can cause this.
1. a broken spring on a carb linkage
2. a lean fuel condition due to debris in the carb or a restriction in the fuel line.
3. A worn butterfly on the carb allowing air to be drawn into the carb and increasing fuel flow.
4. A worn or broken spring on the engine governor linkage

Paragraphs 1 - 4 above are the most common reasons. Most of the time this is not an outrageous repair cost. But it is an expense you should incur before things get much worse.

Just my recomendations from working professionally in 3 lawn mower repair shops as a 2nd job.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Lawn Mower begins then stops before in use

It means that either not enough gas is getting into the engine. The gas you pump in when you prime is enough to start the engine but not to keep it going.

There could be several things that cause this.
1. Old fuel:
Solution: Replace the fuel. Dump out the old stuff. If it is a year old it won;t work.

2. A dirty carburetor:
Solution: Clean the carburetor.
Easy carb clean:
Pull the bowl off and use carb cleaning solution to clean it. (you can buy carb cleaning solution a Wal-Mart in the automotive section. I have also heard acetone will work but I have not tried it.) Make sure not to loose the little parts like the pin.

Better carb clean:
pull the carb off the machine and clean each part with carb cleaner. There is a youtube video someone else posted on how to do this.

3. Your gas/air flow is not adjusted properly.
To check:
Pull off or out the air filter. Try to start it.
If the machine runs longer there are two options: The air filter is dirty so replace it, or the air flow is not adjusted proberly. There should be a screw like thing sometimes called the "main jet" that you turn to adjust the air flow. It is on the carburetor side or bottom.
If the machine dies faster or won't start there is probably too much air flow and by removing the filter you added more air. Adjust the "Main Jet" as above.
