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 :

Excess current demand that can result in fuses blowing or breakers tripping are: Short circuits: Check for loose, disconnected or damaged wires Megger the motor to see if there is a short in the windings – keep rotating the motor in about 10º increments and check around the entire motor.
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.
A fuse box that keeps tripping indicates that you have a faulty electrical item. Or faulty wiring somewhere in your home. The simple solution for this problem is to contact an expert for professional help. Or you can solve the problem yourself if it`s not that complicated.
When a circuit breaker regularly trips or a fuse repeatedly blows, it is a sign that you are making excessive demands on the circuit and need to move some appliances and devices to other circuits. Or, it may indicate that your house has too few circuits and is in need of a service upgrade.
Improper modification is one of the most commonly seen problems. The most common of these is tapping more than one conductor from a single connection point.
Although we often think of fuses as a nuisance, they play an important safety role in preventing damage to equipment due to electrical overloading, thereby reducing the risk of electrical shock to patients and staff. You should not dismiss a blown fuse as an inconvenience.
If the engine will not crank, you likely have a problem with… Discharged / defective battery or faulty electrical connections. To address these issues, check the battery and charging system for problems. Faulty parts: potentially the safety interlocks, starter motor switch (open circuit), or solenoid.
The fuse used on most of our riding mowers is a 20 ampere, 12 volt, automotive-type, two-prong, flat-blade fuse ( known as. SAE ATC® style).
If your riding mower`s battery is fully charged and your ignition key is pressed, you could also have a blown fuse, but nothing happens when you turn the key to start the engine. Short circuits can cause fuse blowing in your lawn mower. The fuse is located behind the dashboard, which is a good place to start.
Worn Check Valve

When the compressor goes to restart and re-fill the tank, the pressure exerted on the compressor from the tank causes the motor to pull a lot of power to compensate for this. This in turn leads to a blown fuse.

The main reasons your amp keeps blowing fuses are a short circuit, faulty wiring, a loose connection, excessive heat, or damage to the power supply or output section or the amplifier.

I have a problem with a Black and Decker electric lawn mower model MM525. While cutting some high grass today, the mower slowed down, then quit and would not restart. I checked the electrical outlet and there was no power–the fuse was burned out in the switch box. I replaced it, tried again, and again it would not start or even give any response at all, but again it blew out the fuse in the box. The fuse is 25A and the mower is only 12A so that’s not an issue, besides, I’ve used this mower from that outlet for about 4 years since I first got the mower and never had any problem before. My question is: is whatever is causing the mower not to start and to blow out my fuse something that can be repaired or should be? Thanks.
ANSWER : Hello blumph,
I can think of only one or two things that are causing your problems. It could either be approx. a $14.00 switch in the handle that has shorted out, or 2 bad brushes $1.75/ea.on the armature (motor). Both are fairly simple fixes with just a screwdriver and maybe pliers. You might also check and see if the power cord has been chafed or damaged and is shorting out. See below for parts:http://www.ereplacementparts.com/black-and-decker-mm575-electric-lawnhogtrade-mulching-mower-parts-c-4167_9514_9550.htmlyurcarguyken@yahoo.com
