The mower runs 30 seconds and coasts down before beginning to mow. Orange light shows.  Repeats on restarting. Charger shows battery has full charge, Ran fine the first year.

Hi John,

Do you have another battery to try.  Even through it's showing a full charge, it "may" be the battery.  Had this happen to me.

That won't work.. It has to be the heavy load of the mower.
