Cordless lawn mower won't start


My Black and Decker cordless lawn mower won't start (it's fully charged). I've noticed that the black wire housing that runs along the length of the mower was frayed a little but it's been working fine. Upon further investigation, the coating of the green wire inside that black housing is also frayed (chewed?! we have rodents in the area) exposing the copper wire. But the copper wire is not broken. If you have any recommendations, I'd be very grateful. The blade moves just fine.

Probably the bare wiring has shorted out, and maybe blew a fuse, or circuit breaker.

Examine the wire, replace it, or tape up all bare sections you find.

Look for a fuse / breaker, at this time .

Maybe something was unplugged.

That is what I would think as well. Be sure you don't shock yourself.

The other possibility is the hand-switch. No doubt you have some sort of handle that you need to hold for it to run. Those can be flakey. Try pushing/pulling/bending the hand-switch to see if it momentarily starts.
