Blade motor will not go on after sitting the winter. I have made sure handle is locked in position. Operating light blinks green occasionally. Please help! Thanks!
Love this mower but now....?

Official Response
Does the blade turn freely (remove battery and try and turn it by hand)

Do you have any other tools / batteries so you can pinpoint the problem item by swapping components.

What mower model do you have.  Does the SP work.  Do the headlight work

Are you holding the button / safety key down while you lift the bale handle to engage the motor.

Blade turns, propulsion works, starting directions followed carefully. Headlights works. Blade motor won't turn on.

Again just to confirm as we have had this solve the problem several times. You are holding the start button down while you lift the bail handle ?

If still nothing. Then you will need to call customer service for diagnosis and instructions.
