Electric Lawn Mower – Maintenance



if you have an electric lawnmower up to go over some tips on what you should be doing every year so the first thing you want to do is clean and sharpen your motor blade and if you're in the north part of the country you want to do this at least once a year and if you're in the southern part of the country you want to do this two times and because it's electric all we have to do is flip it over the side doesn't matter which side we flip it over and I like using a piece of wood to lock against the blade and then you can either use a socket wrench or any type of adjustable or solid wrench and we're just going to remove the blades and then we'll go over the steps on how to clean sharp to clean off the blade you can either use a wire brush by hand or on a drill and we'll just clean up all the debris first now that the blades cleaned off and it's important that we clean it up because we're actually going to balance this when we're done sharpening it to make sure that we have the same amount of metal removed from both sides and we don't want this to be uneven because it can shorten life the bearings of the lawnmower so now you can either use a hand sharpener that you can pick up at any hardware store or one that's real convenient that you can connect to a drill is one of these stone sharpeners and all we're going to do is hold on to the blade and he has a flat side the beveled side and we're just going to run it along the length of the cutting edge once you've sharpened your blade now you want to use a balancing tool which you can pick up at any hardware store and you want to make sure that you've removed the same amount of metal from both sides and if one side is substantially different in height then you want to take off material on that side so that it's even now you want to remove any buildup on the underside of the deck and especially if you're using this as a mulch or you want to make sure that that's clean so that a mulch is property once you clean your deck I like using a silicon spray or a deck spray underneath the deck and what this will do is keep grass from accumulating and also prevent corrosion now we'll just put our blade back at so that's all there is to maintaining an electric lawn mower and the only other thing I would add is make sure you check the rating of your extension cord and make sure it matches the amps which

    That is NOT “all there is to maintain an electric lawn mower”. You should also take the top cover off, vacuum the debris around the motor, give it a few drops of oil to keep the stator running freely and most importantly check the brushes and replace before they wear out!

    How tight should it be when putting blade back on? Why does no one show this? Thanks though.

    Good tips, I seen a video from home depot where they sprayed the underside of the blade with cooking oil to reduce grass build up. My guess is they used something like Pam cooking spray. Do you have any comment about that? Since Youtube doesn't allow links just search for this: Quick Tips: Eliminate Grass Buildup from Your Mower. I have a question for you. We use an electric lawn mower and dirt and grass accumulates under the motor shroud. The screws are a bear to remove. Is there anything they can be replace with to make it easier to remove the shroud for cleaning? A person said quick release pins, but he never answered my question about what he meant by quick release pins.

    Nice to know that I don't need to buy an angle grinder to sharpen the blade.
