Hi, I’m Helen from eSpares.

The most common thing to go wrong on a Flymo electric lawnmower is in the switch box area; either the levers or the switch itself, because they’re constantly getting pressed and yanked.

Now depending on your model, you can replace the levers or the switch separately, but some models you have to replace them as an entire unit and in this video I’m going to show you how to replace the whole switch box assembly as a unit.

Now safety first- always make sure you disconnect from the mains before you start any work. Now to remove the switch box from the handle, I need to remove these two screws, and for this I need a torx key, and you can get a set on the eSpares website. With the screws removed I can now remove the switch box from where it sits on the handle.

Now, as the new switch box comes with all the wiring, I need to remove the wire all the way up to the motor. So to get to that I need to remove the lid and the grass box and work the wire out to the motor cover. Now to remove the motor cover, I need to undo these two Philips screws.

So when I remove the motor cover, you can see that the cable’s attached to the motor by these two wires and stay clips so I just need to pull them off and then reattach the new ones in the same way and then I need to feed the cable back in and then back into the cable clips.

Then I need to put the motor cover back on, the grass box and lid and then reattach the new switch box to the handle. There we go - a new switch box and levers!

And I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s a really easy fix-it to do. Switch boxes, levers and switches for all models of Flymo are available on the eSpares website.

Thanks for watching.
