Open your circuit breaker box. Locate the breaker that has tripped. Turn the breaker OFF (it is in a mid position). Then turn it back ON. Before you do that you need to ask yourself, why did the circuit breaker trip? They trip because of an overload of current. Is something else running on that same circuit, say for example an electric heater or something similar? Depending on the rating of that circuit breaker (15 or 20 amps) you may be drawing too much current. Look for anything else that could be running on the same circuit (only so many outlets can be put on the same circuit). Disconnect or turn off all other devices. Attempt to operate your mower again. If the breaker trips again, then there is something wrong with your mower (electrical short?).

According to wikipedia. a commutator is the moving part of a rotary electrical switch in certain types of electric motors and electrical generators that periodically reverses the current in a DC motor. It's part of what makes the motor run.

Pull the plug. MAKE SURE THE PLUG IS COMPLETLY REMOVED AND SEPARATED FROM THE MOWER!! Remove the cover with the pull start attached. see if you can turn it by the flywheel or the blade. If you can, you can just have the rewind repaired.
If not, then you have a probable bent or twisted crankshaft. Most likely not worth repair.

no doubt the brushes have decided they need replaced .

It sounds like bearings are seized and need to be replaced. Too much attempted use will burn out the field windings and a rewind or new motor will be needed - both costly.

If you still have it, one of the possible fixes for this is cleaning the contacts in the switch box. Make sure the battery is unplugged. Remove the top handle by unscrewing the big yellow knobs on the sides of the handle. Remove the cable from the top cable clip. Turn the switch box over and unscrew the 5 screws. Taking the box apart you will be able to see where the cable comes in and splits into 4 leads, two white and two black. Pull the switch out and unplug the 4 lead clips from the switch prongs. (Take note that with the 4 prongs up and the switch pointing to the left, the 2 white leads will be on the left and the two black leads on the right.) Now turn the switch over to where you see the two screws. After removing the screws you can pop the switch apart. You will likely see rust on the springs, and a patina on some of the copper contacts and prongs. Spray the inside with some WD-40 to treat the rusted area wiping with a paper towel afterward and drying. Then use a piece of sand paper to clean your contact points and the prongs on the back. After the points are cleaned, put the switch back together and replace the two screws. Reconnect the wires to the switch. You can now test to verify if you have succeeded by depressing the switch while the battery is connected. If this works, then disconnect the battery and put the switch box back together on the handle. Reconnect your top handle and your are done. Good luck! I just repaired mine today when I realized this is why it had not been working.

needs new set of brushes in motor

Electric Lawn... | Answered on Jul 05, 2014

Most electric motor problems are caused by the bearings failing. Before that happens it may get very stiff but stil turn. With the power off, and the blade still attached, try turning the blade at least half a turn. Is that possible? Any noises as you turn? Is it very stiff or fairly free? If you turn it several times you may find that putting it upright and connecting the power it may start turning again.
Let me know what you find.
