Over time with general usage, improper operation and storage can deteriorate your machine, causing your lawnmower to develop issues. Before using, you may want to read over the manual to understand your machine more, taking advice from the manufacturer to extend the life of the lawnmower.
Here is a breakdown guide, pinpointing common faults that can occur when you have had a lot of usage out of your corded Flymo Lawnmower.
Check your manufacturing guide for the correct starting procedure for your model.
Check the lawnmower propulsion system is working. Additionally, inspect that the cable isn’t coming out of the socket if there is damage to the cable or has a blown fuse.
You can find out if the fuse has blown using a multimeter, then replace if required.
If this continues to happen, you will need to take your machine to a specialist to be checked over.
Check that box hasn't been overloaded - Some lawn mowers cut out when the grass box is full. Simply empty the grass box.
Cutting too much grass or grass that is too long can cause the mower to slow down and even stop. To resolve the problem, raise the cutting height and recut it afterwards with a lowered height. Alternatively, you could use a brushcutter if the grass is too long, then go over the grass with your lawnmower with an adjusted cutting height.
Disconnect from the mains, and check that the blade has been fitted properly. If this part is damaged or worn, replace. When replacing or sharpening, make sure that the blade is perfectly balanced. If it is not, this can cause an uneven cut and cause irreparable damage to the machine.
The cutting height should be raised to a higher position.
The wheels and rollers should be able to rotate freely to easily push the lawnmower.
Overtime debris can build up underneath with grass and soil. Therefore, this needs to be cleaned out to ensure that your lawn mower can work to its full capacity and so that the blade can function properly.
There is a possibility that the drive belt has worn or even stretched, which will mean the blade will not rotate properly. Check that the bearings on the spindles as this can hinder the mower's performance.
If the motor is running and the blade is not turning, the belt could be loose or even have snapped. In this case, make sure the four screws that tighten the belt are secure. Or if the belt has snapped, replace this part.
If you still have persistent issues with your lawnmower this will then need to be dealt with by a professional.
