Does anybody know someone who fixes lawnmowers? I'm not looking for a shop or anything like that just maybe someone who does it more of a hobby. Obviously pay but not too much as not worth it.maybe take a look and tell me if worth fixing. Got two dead mowers now,grrr... Thought before I tip find out.local to Rockferry/Bebington surrounding areas.Thanks.

Does not sound good Cools, sorry. Smoke from an electric motor usually spells the end of the line unless it is simply the carbon brushes but they would not normally cause smoke. Good luck with them.

just spent last Saturday servicing my 4 mowers but they were petrol. Silly question have you at least tried a new fuse in the plug? Have stripped a couple of electric garden things down but they don't tend to make them too diy friendly with soldered wire connections. Like others if a fuse doesn't sort it the next thing would be to just unscrew the starter lever (machine unplugged that is) and see if any loose or broken wires as they do fray where cable goes into starter handle. Beyond that I would scrap them.

Thanks Fish , someone is going to look at the one that just suddenly stopped as you say could be a simple fix , the smoking one that's a goner.
