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

1 Answer

Blade assembly does not tighten

When I start the mower, the blade assembly is so loose that the armature spins to fast and the blade does not move. I replaced the fan, insulator, and spacer parts but that still did not get it tight. Is there a way to keep the armature from spinning. I'm really at the end of my rope with this thing. I have the same problem with my Model 8000 electric mower.

I think either the bolt holding the left blade onto the spindle is loose, or the cup washers under that bolt are flattened or missing. As a result, the blade is slipping on the shaft and probably making a squeal or squawk. Take off the deck, flip it over, and remove the blades. Note if the bolts seem tight. And look at the washers stacked under the bolts. Replace any missing washers, or flattened cup washer. Make sure the cup washer faces the right way (hollow side toward the blade). Tighten things back up securely - it takes a hefty pull on the end of a 2 foot long wrench to get enough torque.

I dont believe there is a shear pin on your blade spindles, what I have found on these machines is the the spindle nuts on the balde spindles sometimes loosen or wear and no longer squeeze the pulley on the blade spindle. To make this process easy on your self you need to tighten these with a impact wrench. However if you dont have access to a impact wrench you can use hand tools and block the blades you are trying to tighten with a wooden block. Just make sure you block the blade you are trying to tighten

Craftsman 42" riding lawn mower blade free spinning but wont cut


It sounds to me that you need a new mower deck drive belt, or your blades need sharpening. If the blade edges are rounded, they won't cut butter... Also, when mower is off, check mower deck drive pulleys to make sure you don't have any that are locked up or are dragging. You can check this by pulling the belt away from pulley and spinning the pulley by hand. MOWER MUST BE OFF before attempting any of these checks. You would be surprised how many people would try this with the mower running.
Hope this helps

I need to change the blade, but am unable to loosen the nut holding the blade in place. the nut and square spacer underneath move together.


you need impact gun.air or electric operated impact,run it reverse. it shouldn't be loose like that. i am guessing the armature drop could be the ring is out of the armature groove. ring are located inside the motor assy.

Blade assembly does not tighten


problem could be the armature ring/ drop. it's for the bearing stopper. if the ring slip off from the grove, all you to do is to put it back to the grove & make sure that the grove are in good shape..its common problem for older armature type.
