Anyone know where I can find the inline mower fuse (or better yet a fuse holder and correctly sized fuse) for the red wire that runs from the battery pack to the internals?
I don’t have the luxury of a warranty since both the mower and battery were bought through ebay. I found out that wonderful fact AFTER I paid $400-$500 total for both and was forced to buy a new battery after less than a year, even though both the mower and battery were brand new when purchased. When the problem developed w/ the motor not starting, I was forced to go looking for the problem myself. Checked the inline fuse, and it had blown. Of course, rather than a simple fuse holder, apparently the ego mower needs a completely new wire - since the fuse that is run between the battery pack and wherever it goes in the internals is soldered directly to the wire. I don’t know a ton about electronics, but that seems like a pretty dumb idea to me. A simple fuse holder that twists together seems like a much simpler and better solution. Besides, supplying a simple serial number to each item and requiring people to register their products w/ proof of purchase seems like a much more valid way to deny invalid warranty claims. Seriously, if I have to go buy another mower because a fuse get’s blown (and taking apart the mower is a royal PITA), how likely do you think I’d be to recommend eGo’s products to my neighbors or purchase anything else from eGO? Stuff like this and the ridiculous amout of time it takes to find replacement parts is beyond frustrating. It’s a mower for cryin out loud, not the SR-71 Blackbird...every major manufacturer offers electric yard tools. You guys should have the wiring diagrams online, replacement parts available for purchase, etc. This is all beyond frustrating...
