Lawn mower circuit breaker. Electric Lawn Mower Not Starting? It’s One Of 12 Issues

Electric Lawn Mower Not Starting? It’s One Of 12 Issues

Well, wouldn’t you know it? You’ve got the time finally to attack the lawn you’ve been meaning to get to and what happens? Nothing.

Not because of anything you’ve done. No, you’ve planned to get this done.

Yet, regardless of all your planning, your trusty electric mower just won’t start.

Okay, maybe that’s all a bit dramatic. Perhaps you just figured it was as good a time as any to hit the lawn with a well-deserved trim. Or maybe there’s a storm coming through and you wanted to get the mowing done before the grass became saturated for a few days.

Regardless of the circumstances, the main thing is your mower isn’t cooperating, so there’s not going to be any mowing until you figure out what the issue is. That’s the dramatic part.

Just remember, when it comes to an electric mower not starting, whether it’s a corded or battery-powered mower, it will probably be an issue with the power supply (outlet/breaker or battery charger), power transmission (cord or battery), or the mower itself (breakers, connections, motor control switches, etc).

Before you start tearing anything apart in a desperate attempt to get your mower, well, mowing, below are some things to troubleshoot and things to consider that might fix the problem before you have to get a technician or service center involved.

Safety First

First, let’s go ahead and get this out of the way. Always remember safety first when it comes to troubleshooting any kind of equipment that can either cut off fingers or electrocute you or both. That’s a bad day that should be avoided at all costs.

Second, have your manufacturer’s manual (or owner’s manual, whichever you prefer) available. If you don’t have a hard copy, you can probably find it online by doing a Google search that looks like, “[Your Brand] [Model Number] Manual PDF.”

Once you have that ready, you’re ready to start troubleshooting.

Troubleshooting Processfor a Corded or Battery-Powered Mower

Before we get to the specific electric mower you have, the troubleshooting process will follow essentially the same path in this general order:

  • Inspect the power transmitter (the cord for a corded mower and the battery for the battery mower).
  • Insect the power supply (the outlet and circuit breaker for a corded mower and the battery charger for the battery mower).
  • Inspect the power receiving end on the mower.
  • Consult your warranty information and contact service center if necessary.

A Corded Electric Mower

Before we determine what the power issue with your electric mower may be, first it helps to know the type of electric mower you have. In this case, let’s assume you have a corded mower.

lawn, mower, circuit, breaker, electric

Let’s also assume that, until this moment, you’ve had zero issues with the mower when it comes to starting and stopping it or anything related to sources of power.

Now, let’s troubleshoot.

Inspect the Cord

If it is a corded electric mower then the first thing you’re going to want to do is to inspect your cord. As most corded mowers do not come with a manufacturer’s provided cord, you have to provide your own extension cord. It should be a standard 16-gauge grounded cord and free of any cuts or other visible damage. Also, check the prongs on the male end and the female end for damage. Lastly, check the male end on the mower itself.

Inspect the Outlet and Breaker

If you’re satisfied the cord is good, try plugging it into another item from the same wall outlet. If there’s no power at the outlet, then you’ve probably identified the issue. It could be a loose wire, a bad outlet, or a tripped breaker. Check one after another until you find the problem.

Check the Breaker and Motor Control Switch

If there isn’t a problem at the outlet or breaker and the cord successfully powers something other than the mower, then the issue is probably at the mower itself.

At this point, check the connection at the mower again to make sure it’s tight and holding firm.

From here, go to the breaker on the mower itself. Push RESET and see if the mower has power now. If it does, there was your problem. If it doesn’t then you may have a bad motor control switch. At this point, unless you know how to repair or replace such a switch, you’ll probably need to consult a service center or repair technician.

Warranty and Corded MowerTroubleshooting Review

One thing to check that’s not on the mower but applies to it is how old it is and if you still have a warranty on it, whether it’s a manufacturer’s or from the store it was purchased at. If you still have a warranty, don’t do any more work on the mower and place that warranty-issue call to get it fixed.

That pretty much sums it up for a corded electric motor. If it isn’t starting, check the power supply at the plug and main breaker, the power transmission at the cord, and final the power receiving at the mower itself. Do that in that order. From there, if you can’t identify the problem, time to call for help.

A Battery-Powered Electric Mower

Okay, now if you don’t have a corded electric mower but a battery-operated model, then this section is for you. However, you should still read through the corded mower section because you might pick up on something there that might help someone you know down the road.

Like the corded mower, let’s assume your mower has functioned normally until this moment and, unexpectedly, it’s just not starting.

Well, clearly there’s a power issue of some sort. So, let’s get to troubleshooting.

Inspect the Battery

With inspecting the battery, you should be looking for any kind of visual damages or leaks. Also, check the battery light to ensure it does indicate a charge. It might not be true but check all the same.

While inspecting, also make sure the battery is dry. A damp or wet battery can cause a short, lead to overheating, and cause a breakdown. If you believe this happened, you shouldn’t have a solid charge on the battery at all.

Speaking of charges, if everything looks good, and you have a battery tester, this would be an ideal time to test it. That way, if it’s not showing a charge even though the indicator lights up green, then you know the battery is probably bad and needs replacement.

Inspect the Battery Charger

If your battery is charged and you’ve tested it and you’re confident it is, then your battery charger should be operating properly. However, if you’ve got no charge on the battery after testing it, check the charger to see if there’s an issue there.

One way to test the charger is, of course, to put another battery on it and see if it charges. However, not everyone has extra lawn mower batteries. Really, the only thing you can do here is to inspect the charger for damage, check the outlet, and inspect the breaker as you would do with a corded mower.

Another thing you can do is use a volt meter. A positive result would indicate that a charger is at least supplying energy but the battery probably can’t hold a charge for long. A negative result would indicate that the charger itself is bad.

Store Your Mower in a Dry Place

Another tip that sounds obvious but one that’s very important when it comes to electric mowers. Remember, water can seriously damage an electric mower, especially a battery-operated one.

Store Your Cord and Battery After Use

Don’t leave the cord with the mower where it can get damaged. Store it somewhere it is easy to get to but won’t be affected by things like sharp blades or wheels. You get it.

For batteries, remove them after use and charge them but don’t leave them on the charger all the time. Also, don’t run the battery completely dead all the time. Running a battery to both extremes can diminish its service life quicker than normal.

Visually Inspect the Mower Before Use

Again, it sounds obvious but it’s good advice, especially if you haven’t taken a look at the blades in a while.


When you use equipment that runs on electricity or gas, eventually you’ll have an issue that needs some special troubleshooting attention. The good news is, with electric mowers, it doesn’t take much time to figure out what the issue might be and when you’ll need to call for assistance.

Just remember to always be safe, walk through the steps, and be patient. Electricity is a wonderful thing but it isn’t magic. Be safe and remember to call for help if you need it.

How to Fix CRAFTSMAN Electric Lawn Mower Problems

Every homeowner with a lawn has experienced the occasional glitch on their electric lawnmower from time to time. The CRAFTSMAN electric lawn mower is reliable, but hardworking garden machines experience wear and sometimes require troubleshooting to fix minor problems.

Possible problems your CRAFSTMAN electric lawn mower can experience:

  • CRAFTSMAN electric mower won’t start.
  • The mower cuts out while mowing.
  • Overheating and doesn’t work.
  • Uneven cuts.
  • Losing power.
  • Excessive vibrations.
  • The mower is hard to push.
  • The electric mower trips the breaker.

CRAFTSMAN Electric Lawn Mower Won’t Start

One of the most fundamental problems you can experience in an electric lawn mower is that it will not start. There are several non-starting problems you may experience. The mower may not start when you take it out to mow the lawn, or it can stop during mowing and refuse to start up again.

There may be some crossover for the causes of both these issues, but we will address them separately since there may be different problems causing each issue.

If the mower won’t start right away when you take it out of the shed or garage, but it worked without an issue the previous time you mowed the grass, you should perform a sequence of checks.

These checks will give you the way forward to resolve the problem on your CRAFTSMAN electric mower and get it running again.

An electric mower relies on a connected circuit to deliver power to the motor. If the mower does not start, there is a fault between the power source, the power outlet, and the motor.

The best way to establish the problem is to run through a series of checks to eliminate the possible problems one by one, beginning with the simplest and most obvious and ending with the least likely issues.

The switch will need to be replaced.

If you are unsure how to repair any of these faults, especially problems in the motor itself or switches on the controls, you should take your mower to the nearest service center to have it checked out.

Never open the mower housing or work on switches with the mower connected to the power. This action is dangerous and can result in a severe electric shock!

CRAFTSMAN Electric Lawn Mower Cuts Out While Mowing

If you are using your CRAFTSMAN electric mower and during the mowing, the machine cuts out and will not start, there are some potential issues to check.

Some issues that can cause this problem are simple to check and easy to remedy. There may be some crossover between the causes for this problem and the lawn mower issue of not starting from the word go.

Solution 1: Check the Circuit Breaker

The first aspect to check is whether the circuit breaker has tripped. Circuit breakers do not normally trip for no reason, so if the breaker is off, the problem bears further investigation.

Solution 2: Check the Extension Cable

Check the extension cord for frayed areas or damage. If the extension cord does not look good, try a different extension cord or replace the extension with a new one.

CRAFTSMAN Electric Mower Overheats and Doesn’t Work

Occasionally, an electric mower motor can overheat to the point that the mower cuts out and refuses to work until it has cooled down sufficiently.

An overheating problem in your mower could be a simple result of working the machine too hard and long on a hot day, or it can result from a maintenance issue that must be addressed.

Solution 1: Let the Mower Cool Down

If the mower has been working for an extended period on a hot day, the mower motor may reach an operating temperature that is outside of its specified safe range. The mower motor will then cut out as a safety measure to protect the motor from damage.

This result is a normal protective measure for the mower, and the only thing to do is to stop mowing and give the mower 10 to 15-minutes to cool down.

Solution 2: Remove Grass Build-up in the Mower

Another cause for overheating in electric lawnmowers is a buildup of grass and organic material under the plastic housing covering the motor.

The only method to clear this problem to prevent overheating is to remove the plastic hood over the CRAFTSMAN motor and clear away the debris. The plastic hood is easily removed by loosening the 3 screws on each side of the plastic cover.

Once the cover is removed, check for debris clogging the vents inside the cover and any accumulation of cut grass under the cover.

The best way to remove the grass buildup under the hood is to blow it away with an air compressor or a leaf blower. Alternatively, the grass can be wiped away with a cloth.

Once the obstruction is cleared, air can circulate freely around the motor, keeping it cool and solving the overheating problem.

My CRAFTSMAN Electric Mower Is Cutting Unevenly

If you notice that your CRAFTSMAN electric mower is cutting unevenly in a single pass over your grass, or there are high and low patches in the cut path, you may have a problem with your mower.

The cut should be clean and even across the entire swath cut by the mower. A worn mower blade is the most common cause of an uneven cut height.

The only solution to this problem is to replace the mower blade. This job is easily done as a DIY project and does not require the mower to be taken to a service center.

When you replace the blade, it is likely that the blasé insulator, a plastic part under the securing nut and spacer, will also need replacement. The blade and the insulator can be purchased from your local mower spares supplier.

Follow these steps to replace the mower blade.

  • Unplug the mower from the power source.
  • Lay the mower on its side to expose the blade.
  • Use an adjustable wrench to loosen the central locking nut on the blade. Use a gloved hand to hold the blade in position and prevent the mower blade from turning when you loosen the securing nut.
  • Remove the old blade and insulator.
  • Replace with the new blade and insulator, positioning both parts in the correct orientation as indicated on the parts.
  • Replace the locking nut and tighten it securely, but take care not to overtighten the nut.

CRAFTSMAN Electric Mower Loses Power

As you mow the lawn or your backyard, you may find the mower losing power when cutting longer grass or generally struggling, and you can hear the motor lose power and speed.

The two main causes for this problem are trying to take cuts that are too deep in thick grass or cut grass, leaves, and debris that have clogged the underside of the mower and are impeding the spinning blade.

Solution 1: Raise the Mower Cut Height

The solution for the first cause is relatively straightforward. Use the lever on the side of the CRAFTSMAN electric mower to raise the level of the cut to the highest setting.

With the cut height lever set to the highest mark, make several passes over the long grass, lowering the cut height a notch after each pass until the mower cuts to the desired length.

Solution 2: Remove Debris From Under the Mower

The second cause for the power loss problem can be debris accumulated under the mower in the blade space. This accumulation of debris can interfere with the spinning blade, causing the mower to lose power.

To fix this issue, ensure the mower is unplugged from the power source, turn it on its side to expose the blade space, and clean out the debris. If the dirt is caked onto the mower chassis and is difficult to remove, a paint scraper can be useful to dislodge the material.

CRAFTSMAN Electric Mower Vibrates Excessively

Experiencing excessive vibrations and shuddering when operating your CRAFTSMAN electric mower can be disconcerting. The cause for the vibrations could be a simple fix, or it may require the mower to be checked out by a service center.

The more serious of the two causes is a possible bent shaft in the motor, while the second and more likely cause is a bent, worn, or loose mower blade.

Solution 1: Check the Mower Blade for Looseness or Damage

The blade problem is the easiest option to investigate and remedy and should be checked first as the possible cause for the excessive vibrations.

Ensure the mower is disconnected from the power outlet and lay the mower on its side to inspect the blade. Check the mower blade for damage and wiggle it to see if it is loose.

If the blade is loose, simply reposition the blade and spacer and tighten the securing nut. If the blade shows signs of damage or is bent, it must be replaced.

Solution 2: Get the Mower Checked by a Service Professional

A bent motor shaft is another possible cause of excessive vibrations in the mower. This situation is a serious problem often caused by the blade striking a hard, immovable object while spinning at high speed. The impact of the blade on the object can bend the motor shaft.

Unfortunately, a bent motor shaft is not a problem that the mower owner can solve. The lawnmower should be taken to an authorized repair center. In all likelihood, the motor will need to be replaced.

CRAFTSMAN Electric Mower Is Hard to Push

There are times when cutting your lawn that you find your electric mower hard to push and difficult to control.

This issue can be caused by cutting high or thick grass, uneven ground, or soft ground. These situations can make the mower difficult to push and cause the mower to struggle to cut the grass.

The uneven ground may cause the rear of the mower housing to drag on uneven ground, making it difficult to push the mower. Thick grass can also cause drag on the blade, which will make the mower hard to push.

Solution 1: Raise the Mower Cut Height

To make pushing the mower easier, raise the cut height to take a smaller bite of the grass at a time. This strategy will require multiple passes to get the grass to the desired height, but the mower will be easier to push.

Raising the cut height will also prevent the mower body from dragging on uneven ground, reducing the effort required to push the mower.

Solution 2: Engage the Self-Propelled Lever

Some CRAFTSMAN electric mowers come with a self-propelled option, which is engaged by pulling a lever on the mower’s handle. This option will use some power from the motor to drive the wheels, which propels the mower forward, reducing the effort required by the person pushing the mower.

CRAFTSMAN Electric Mower Frequently Trips the Circuit Breaker

A problem you may experience when using your CRAFTSMAN mower is the circuit breaker frequently tripping while the mower is being used.

This problem may be caused by factors external to the mower or a problem with the mower itself.

Solution 1: Check the Extension Cable for Damage

The first check you should perform if your CRAFTSMAN mower frequently trips the circuit is to inspect the extension cord for fraying, damaged insulation, or a fault. This damage is the most common and likely cause of frequent circuit breaker trips with an electric mower.

Replace the extension cord if any wear is noticed on the cable or damage to the exterior of the cable is visible.

Solution 2: Check the Circuit for Overloading

Another cause of the circuit tripping may be unrelated to a fault on the mower or the extension. If the circuit the mower is working on is overloaded with other appliances or devices, the circuit may trip when the mower motor is engaged.

Check for other appliances or power tools on the same electrical circuit, unplug them while using the mower, or consult an electrician to install a larger circuit breaker.

Cutting thick grass may also cause the circuit preacher to trip. The mower will draw more power when pushed through thick grass, and more demands are put on the motor. Raise the cut height when cutting thick grass to prevent this problem.

Why Does My Breaker Keep Tripping With Nothing Plugged In?

The common problem is: “breaker won’t reset nothing plugged in”. We’ve all experienced the frustration of a circuit trip at least once.

You can do some basic troubleshooting before calling an electrician. The causes of this problem are several. Please continue reading to discover the grounds with us.

How To Know If Your Circuit Breaker Is Tripping?

Power going out in a specific area of your home is the first indicator of a tripped circuit breaker. Additionally, numerous broken outlets in a single location are a warning. You are now experiencing a tripped circuit breaker.

After that, investigate your electrical panel to determine the situation. Look for the one that stands out, as most breakers will be on.

The handle will be between the “on” and “off” positions if a circuit breaker trips due to using extra amperage than it is designed to handle. Flip the handle to Off and then to On to reset. To identify which panel has tripped on some, you must check closely.

Reasons Your Breaker Keeps Tripping Without Plugged In

When too much electrical current passes through a circuit breaker, it trips. Suppose nothing is plugged in, and your circuit breaker keeps tripping. It may be a symptom of an overcurrent, ground fault, short circuit, or defective circuit breaker.

You may delve more to discover the issue, which is likely why you’ve arrived here. Here are the possible reasons:

lawn, mower, circuit, breaker, electric

Short Circuit

A tripped breaker results from a short circuit because a considerable amount of current flows through the electrical wires. When this occurs, the hot wires might cause visible damage to your connected device.

A wiring issue in the house, such as hot wires or loose connections, is the cause of this problem. You should examine your electrical circuit if this occurs when no electrical device is plugged in.

Remember that you should be grateful that your breaker tripped because this issue is dangerous.


There’s a chance that the trip is caused by a connection that you are unaware of. Any time an electrical current exceeds the intended load, overcurrent occurs. Circuit overload, short-circuit, and using maximum amperage are the main subtypes of overcurrent.

Ground Fault

A ground fault occurs when a hot or active wire touches the ground wire, a part of the junction box. A trip occurs due to heavy currents flowing through the fuse box when the hot and ground wires come into contact.

Why this Greenworks Electric Mower will not Run!

GFCI – Ground-fault circuit interrupters are created to keep an eye out for this issue. However, when no appliance is plugged into a GFCI, a ground fault may happen due to moisture buildup in an outlet or a faulty wire.

Defective Circuit Breaker

If none of the above explanations are the root of your issue, you may have a faulty breaker. Circuit breakers deteriorate much like every other object. If it trips a lot, it can be an outdated circuit breaker.

Circuit breakers need to have routine professional maintenance or inspection. To fix the issue, you might think about replacing it.

How To Fix a Circuit Breaker That Keeps Tripping

Check For Overload

Start by unplugging and turning off every appliance in each room that has lost power. Then proceed to engage the breaker. If the breaker trips immediately, you probably have a short rather than an overload.

If the circuit breaker doesn’t trip, return to the room and begin plugging everything in and turning them on one at a time. You know you’ve used up your circuit’s capacity when the breaker repeatedly trips.

Reset The Circuit Breaker

It’s time to reset the breaker if no problems with the input wires are discovered. Switch your breaker back and forth between “OFF” and “ON.”

Once it continues to trip, give it a moment; there is probably an issue. It has to be changed.

Replace The Circuit Breaker

Replacing the bad circuit breaker is your last resort. Consider the new breaker’s kind, size, and brand when replacing the old ones.

We advise that you consult a qualified professional electrician because tinkering with the panel can be risky.


Can A Circuit Breaker Trip For No Reason?

A circuit breaker will always trip for a valid reason. When your circuit breaker trips out frequently, you are using too much electricity.

If your circuit breaker constantly trips for no apparent reason, there may be a leak or damage someplace. It would help if you ascertained the cause.

The causes of a circuit breaker trip have been discussed above. We hope you can find what you need.

Is It Safe To Reset A Tripped Breaker?

Keep in mind that you should only reset a breaker if the circuit is overloaded. Resetting a breaker several times could result in an arc flare or a fire, and determining the causes is crucial. Keep the following in mind if you decide to reset a tripped breaker.

Electric lawnmower repair (Black & Decker ). How to repair the lawnmower if it won’t start.

Don’t disassemble your breaker panel because several parts can electrocute you if just touched. Then, before resetting, remember to unplug all of your electrical appliances. It is preferable to stand to the side when resetting your breaker box because sometimes it can spark.

How Much Does It Cost To Fix A Bad Breaker That Keeps Tripping?

Breaker box replacement typically costs 1,475. A 200-amp panel update can cost you up to 5,000, whereas a low-amp panel costs 1,000 to 2,000 on average. The cost will be lower, roughly 250, if you only want to replace the circuit breaker switch.

When figuring out the breaker replacement cost, you must remember to factor in the electricians’ service fees. A licensed electrician can be hired for 40 per hour, compared to 100 in some states. You must use websites or recommendations to discover a reliable location at a fair price.


Now that you know the common reason, we hope you can tell us why my breaker keeps tripping with nothing plugged in. Understanding your circuit breaker does not require you to be a licensed electrician.

We think you already know the path. Check the cause of the breaker tripping before applying the solutions we provided to resolve the issue. Call a qualified electrician if things become out of control.

Why Does My Generator Circuit Breaker Keep Tripping? – Reasons

Are you here because you’re wondering, why does my generator circuit breaker keep tripping? In a majority of tripping cases involving a generator’s breaker, people predominantly end up discovering they’re only dealing with an electrical overload or a power leak/ ground fault.

Secondly, a faulty breaker may be to blame. Lastly, don’t overlook the possibility that there may be something wrong with its circuitry, particularly a loose connection. Read on to learn why these issues happen and the best steps you should take to address them.

Why Overloads and Short Circuits Commonly Plague Generator Breakers

Every generator and its corresponding circuit breaker has a maximum load capacity. For example, your portable Generac generator breaker keeps tripping probably because you’re not entirely aware of the generator’s load capacity.

lawn, mower, circuit, breaker, electric

Try looking back to when the trip occurred. Did you turn on more appliances and gadgets than usual? Did you add a new appliance to the circuit? Chances are, it may be drawing more amps than you anticipated, and that’s the only reason why the generator keeps tripping the breaker.

If that’s the case, then you only need to reduce the load. Incidentally, people share this common issue because they’re not mindful of load capacities. If you rely a lot on your generator because you’re outdoors a lot (i.e. sailing or camping), you may have to closely watch out for when you’re pushing the limit from now on.

Don’t Forget About the GFCI Side of Things, Too

When tripping circuit breakers are concerned, GFCI breakers tend to come into play, too. After all, most generators integrate only these two types of breakers.

If your generator’s GFCI keeps tripping, it’s not usually because of an overload. It’s most likely performing the specific function it’s designed for, which is to trip when a power leak or a ground fault happens.

Think of these “leaks” as electric currents that have gone awry. They’re more inclined to follow a different circuit than the one that’s connected to the generator. GFCI breakers keep track of these electrical anomalies and will shut down the power once they do.

Is that the only reason why GFCI breakers of generators trip? Not really.

  • We can’t totally rule out the possibility of an electrical overload being behind it.
  • Be wary of the presence of moisture near the GFCI breaker. It may have built up to the point that it’s beginning to cause the usual “generator circuit breaker keeps tripping” problem. These are rare in portable generators, though, for they’re naturally equipped with better protection against the elements.

Frequent Tripping Has Always Been a Tell-Tale Sign of a Bad Breaker

Next, we need to consider the possibility that you’re dealing with a breaker that’s on its last legs. Regardless of what power source you’re using, a breaker that needs replacing will start showing this sign. This is especially true if the generator to the breaker trips without load.

However, that’s rarely the only symptom you’ll see. The breaker itself may be short-circuiting and gets damaged in the process. You’ll see signs and odors resulting from the damage, like a smoky smell or blackened spots around the breaker.

Don’t delay replacing the breaker once you confirm that it’s no longer functioning. You won’t be able to use your generator properly and safely without it.

Are Faulty Wires and Loose Connections Possible Culprits?

We can’t rule out the odds of them affecting the generator breaker. After all, there’s not much difference between a home circuit breaker and a generator circuit breaker. Although, I admit that they’re not as common as the other problems mentioned here.

However, we can’t deny that almost every breaker is designed to trip if it’s sensing there’s something wrong with its wiring. This is why I give the benefit of doubt and check the screws of setting the wires in place when diagnosing generator circuit breaker problems. A little tightening could very well solve the issue outright.

lawn, mower, circuit, breaker, electric

Here’s a fine demonstration of it:


So to sum up the answers to “why does my generator circuit breaker keep tripping?” I recommend you remember these pointers:

  • The power draw of the appliance/s exceeds the load capacity of the breaker so
  • Electrical leakages and ground faults will keep tripping the GFCI breaker until you address the issue of moisture or faulty wiring.
  • Breakers that are about to go tend to trip a lot.
  • Don’t overlook loose connections.
