Q:

my bolens model 18a-717-765 elec. mower won't run

A:

Thank you for your question. 

 

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the mower. If the motor is not coming up to speed, the problem is likely the motor. Before replacing the motor or buying a new mower, I recommend checking a few things. First, unplug the mower and tip it on its side. Then turn the blade with a gloved hand. You want to be sure the blade turns easily and there is not anything wrapped around the motor shaft. If the blade turns and you do not see anything wrapped around the shaft, tip the mower back over. Then plug the mower into a different power cord. This will rule out a cord problem. If the motor still does not come up to speed, the motor needs to be replaced. I looked up the motor for the mower. Based on the cost of the motor (275.78) you may consider a new mower. I pasted a link below to a model close to yours. Click here to see the mower. 

 

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. 

 

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.
