    Spot on! Mower back working within 15mins

    Mower stopped. Google & YouTube search confirmed switch likely to have gone. Found part on espares straight away. Wasn't sure if needed capacitor but reviews said otherwise. Easy to fit, a straight swap, however, I did need to break the old switch open with screwdriver to free wires. Machine back working within 15 mins. Cheaper than buying a new mower!!

    Good products - good service!

    I repeat my review covering both the Flymo switch and the capacitor: How to feel good! I have a couple of lawns and they were badly in need of a cut - six inch grass in places. I got halfway through cutting and the machine stopped - so did the current flow! It indicated to me that the capacitor needed replacing as well as the cutout switch in the house to be turned back on and the various other household electric items to be also switched back on and programmed. Damned nuisance. Espares were my saviour. To be safe I ordered a switch and capacitor for my Flymo. (I wasn't sure so belt and braces). Took a couple of days to arrive and about half an hour for me to replace both items then finish off the lawn. Excell

  • In fact, they are just a very tight fit, especially if there is some damp corrosion around. Just get a good grip with long-nose pliers and lever them out against the body - a bit of 'post-hole wobbling' first doesn't hurt. By Baz - Leeds, England - 15 March 2016

    Other reviewers suggest breaking the old switch apart (take photo first to identify them).

  • 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. By DS - London - 23 April 2013
  • 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! By AndytheB - West Midlands - 02 June 2010

    The wire going to the power switch can break due to movement. Try moving this when the motor is running to see if it cause the cutting out and replace if required.

    Sorry we do not have this information, however we would recommend taking a picture of the screw head to a local DIY store.

Answer this question

We have just bought the above switch for our Power Compact 400 and noticed that the existing switch has another little box on it. From reading reviews here it seems to be a capacitor. Do I need to buy a new one or can I use the existing one. The lawnmower just decided not to work when we tried to use it - no fuses blown, nothing else wrong with it. thanks

    You can reuse the original. to remove push a small pin into the switch next to the capacitor wire to release it.
