    Easy Fix

    This, along with the lawn mower switch, made for an easy fix (see video on that popular video hosting site if in doubt) and a BIG saving over buying a new mower. Well pleased! :)

  • Does it matter which way round the brown (live) and blue (neutral) wires go into the switch as long as it is the same on both sides? By Andy - - 19 July 2014
  • Espares were of no help so for the benift of others the live feed in goes in the holes where the screwa are, wires from switch out to the bottom holes and capscitor into the top holes on the same side. Simples. By morrisa - Larbert, Scotland. - 01 July 2011

Answer this question

When I first switched on this summer had a problem first with the mower not switching off, later only starting up intermittently before cutting out. Replaced switch, not capacitor. Now, checked with multimeter, there seems to be no voltage at all at motor. Do I need to replace the capacitor? (No expert, resistance reads ~5.5 ohms on the 200-scale across the motor on the multimeter, which I do not think is high).

    The problem is likely to be the switch. For information on this problem see our video: How to replace the Flymo switch box on a Flymo Turbo Compact 330: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/10/1421

Answer this question

I replaced the switch and capacitor, the lawnmower ran perfectly when I tested it, put it all back together only to find it won’t now run. Checked everything, no loose connections, no burning smell or buzzing.

    Use a meter to check continuity from the plug to the motor. If the motor measures high resistance then that would be the fault.

    When these fail they will blow the mains fuse or show signs of burning. They are only to reduce mains interference from the motor being radiated through the supply.
