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.

The pull start cord will only move about 3-4 inches and then it stops and then cord stops, Troy built- Briggs/Statton 21 inch self-propel lawnmower.


The mower's drive shaft may need to be lubricated. If you turn the mower over and try to move the blade by hand (with the mower off, of course) does it move, or is it hard to move? If it's hard to move or it won't move at all, lubricate the shaft by squirting some WD-40, 3-In-1, or other lubricating oil onto the drive shaft where it meets the chassis of the mower. Squirt enough oil to cover the circumference of the drive shaft, then try to spin the blade again. It should at least spin a little bit now. Squirt some more oil and spin the blade again, until the blade spins easily. Then turn the mower back over and try to pull the start cord -- it should pull normally now.

Mower blade is spinning loose is not connected to motor. did a stud brake cause not is tight


Don't ever run a mower with a loose blade. Most push mowers have a blade adapter that slips over the engine shaft and allows the fastening bolt (and it should be a special hardened one with 6 lines on the head of it) to thread into the end of the crankshaft. The adapter could have slipped and needs to be repositioned on the shaft so that the blade can be properly tightened.

MTD 42" CUT MOWER MODEL 42A707 TYPE 1238 01 CODE960 2085A. 1) Mower blades do not stop spinning when deck is raised all of the way. 2) Left blade intermitantly makes a horrible noise when cutting grass...


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.

Bolt comes loose and rip cord is yanked from hand


  1. block off the blade and driver assembly with a 2x4 to keep it from moving
  2. remove the flywheel nut (regular hand force should be sufficient)
  3. tap the 3 holes on the flywheel (if they aren't already threaded) using 1/4inch 20national tap set
  4. remove the flywheel using a flywheel puller -- a harmonic balancer puller which matches the tecumseh bolt pattern on the flywheel also works using 3 1/4inch thread (20national, 2inch long) bolts with washers
  5. NOTE: (if the blade was removed/reinstalled, tighten the blade to manufacturer's spec of 60lbs) before installing the new flywheel key
  6. remove the sheared flywheel key
  7. clean up the flywheel (wipe off all the dirt and grease)
  8. install the new flywheel key (part 611004 for toro 20016)
  9. install the flywheel (pull the bail brake handle to get the ball-brake inside the flywheel)
  10. tighten the flywheel nut to manufacturer's spec of 37.5lbs
  11. prime the gas bulb, give it a pull and mow away

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.
