    My mower wouldn't start. Fuse, plug and socket were fine. Looking on-line, people suggested it was usually the switch , which was cheap, so I ordered this one. Fitting was fairly straight forward - you need a torx bit, and the best approach is to lever the back off the old switch to get the wires out, as they are held in by spring clips. The old switch looked fine, but it turned out to be the cause of the problem, as the mower worked perfectly after it was replaced.

    Full marks to espares , identifying the relevant switch as it wasn't listed on the website. Despite remarks in other reviews, it was not a major job to fit. Needed to strip one cable end to re terminate, but anyone who can fit a 13 amp plug should be able to cope.

    Easily fitted and worked first time. Seems identical to original part not a copy. Same price as from Flymo Official site but postage was about one third of that from Flymo.

      Actually I found the best way to remove the two wires was to prise the back off the switch (doesn't matter if you wreck it). It is then a simple matter of removing the clips securing the wires and pulling them out intact. This way, there is no danger of damaging the solder tags on the ends of the wires, which are useful when refitting. To refit, simply push the wires into the appropriate holes in the new switch and they will latch. Same for the capacitor.

      The way I removed the wire from the old switch was to push a pin into the hole beside the wire and pull. The wires are held inside the switch by a simple spring mechanism!

      Without the capacitor the mower will work but may cause interference to radios TV.s and phones nearby.

      This is an anti interference capacitor. Many people have posted comments on the best way to change the switch is to break the old switch open. This would release the capacitor to fit on the new switch.
