How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
The circuit breaker may have tripped
Then check around the blade and clear any debris that may be blocking it. Reattach the spark plug boot and reinsert key. Wait 30 seconds so the breaker can self-reset, then try restarting.
Electric lawnmowers may cut out for two main reasons: A faulty power switch or a loose cable connection. An overheating motor can cause the thermal cut out to trip.
Loose, Dirty or Disconnected Spark Plug in Your Lawn Mower: Check it out, clean off debris, re-connect and tighten. Dirty Air Filter: Clean or replace. Fuel Not Reaching the Engine: Tap the side of the carburetor to help the flow of gas. If this doesn`t work, you might need a new fuel filter.
If a mower is hard to start, it may be the result of a dirty carburetor and/or a clogged air filter. Use a screwdriver to remove the carburetor and clean any dirt out of it with a rag. Clean the air filter or replace it if it`s disposable.

Lawn mower won t start – Black & Decker Black and Decker Mm575 18" Mulching Lawn Hog Electric Lawn Mower
I too had problems starting and running my MM575 mower. I found the switch lever would only work when held at a angle. I opened up the switch cover and found the plastic pivot pin for the switch lever was worn causing the lever to be too loose. I cut the pivot pin and drilled it out and replaced it a 10-32 screw with nut. Now it works like it is supposed too!

Same thing happened to mine it was a short in the switch (replace switch) make sure to take note of which wire goes to each terminal before replacing
I have an 24V electric mower.\i charge it
Either the connector between the battries and the mower are bad or the starter switch is bad, you know the wires between the batterries and the connector are good because you said the batterries charged just fine, so either between the connector and the motors, or the key switch has a break in its continuity, easiest way to test is connect the batterries directly to the motor to see if it works if it does connect before the start switch then after the connector the before the connector and keep moving up the connection wires until you fine where the problem is. Hope This Helps Don
I have trouble starting a toro walk behind mower
All, I thought my carb was shot, so I replaced it. Still, start but no run (and had to use starting fluid). THEN!!! I noticed the spring to the “rev limiter” (just below and towards rear of carb) was not “tight”. The stupid bracket that holds the end of that spring had been bent down ~1/16″ and that caused all this heartache. CHECK YOUR REV LIMITER!!!
Electric motor runs but well below full power, and over heats quickly. Can I fix this?
It could just need the bearings cleaned and lubed, but it might need them replaced or their could be partial shorts in the motor windings, which would likely make it junk. Perhaps try the bearings, but either bring it in or replace it beyond that.
