New Black & Decker Cordless (CM2040) Mower Won't Start


Have had this for a month-used it twice and all went well. However... this time it just won't start. No noise-nothing. Have read manual, done everthing it says to do, have "chatted" on line w/B&D rep. - useless. Anyone have any suggestions of what to try - other than taking it to a Service Center?? Thanks

I assume you charged it up, until the green light came on. And you fully inserted the safety key, then pushed the button on the switchbox, then pulled the handle lever.

If you have a meter, you can check the battery. But even that is not a 100% check, because you are not checking it under load.

Another good possibility is that one of the cheap plastic switches is not making contact. Sometimes you need to jiggle the key/switch a little.
