  • 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

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.

  • Had exactly the same problem. Found out it was caused by a broken retaining spring to one of the motor brushes. Tried to obtain a replacement to no avail so cannibalised an old spring from a defunct motor and fabricated it to fit. Mower now working fine. By R. Shore - Staffordshire - 17 June 2017

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

Is this the capacitor?

    You would need to test the components with a multimeter to determine which part has failed.

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
