Battery charged, everything seems fine but machine won't start. On light blinks green. Self-propulsion is fine, just no blade action

Repeatedly tried pulling the handle in place and made sure locked.

And you are pressing the green button first, and holding it pressed while pulling on the bail? Sometimes people try to do it in the opposite order. Doesn't work in the opposite order.

Yes, I have operating and praising mower for one year. It has been sitting for winter months so assuming this isĀ  a corrosion problem, though less than year old. Something I can fix?

I would call customer service and let them help you troubleshoot. Corrosion hasn't been a problem with these mowers.

I had the exact smae problem and realized that one of the clips that secure the handle in it's extended position had come undone when I brushed past a bush. If I left it for a minute it would start again then fade within ten seconds. It would always drive though. Extending the handle and snapping the clip closed fixed my problem.

i have the same issue now. i had the lawn mower for 2 months. i went to start it today and the blades wont engage. i tried different batteries, tried extending the handles. the blades wont engage. i called customer service and was put on hold and never got anyone to answer the phone. the self propelling works though.
