How to Change the Fan Impeller on an Electric Mower

When your trusted lawnmower has given up the ghost, the fault could lie with the impeller fan, if this falters then the repair is quite simple. Once fitted with a new fan your mower will be back up and running helping you trim and maintain your lawn again throughout the remainder of the cutting season.

What You Will Need:

Step 1 - Safety Advice

Safety first: always unplug electric lawnmowers before repairing, and keep the mains plug beside you so no-one inadvertently reconnects the power supply. Wear safety gloves while working with blades.

Step 2 - Removing the Blades

With the machine switched off, gently turn it over. With your safety gloves on, remove the blade height adjuster along with the blades. (for more specific instruction you should always refer to your user manual)

Step 3 - Lifting the Fan
