EGO 21” Power Loss

My EGO has been running flawlessly until this season. Then my self propelled would only work in full speed. Then the mower blade just slowed down and stopped. Swapped batteries and the blade motor would still not work. When I pick up the front or rear wheels and drop the wheels to the ground, the mower will work for a short period of time then stops again. Have to do this over and over and the same result...runs for less than a minute then slows to a stop again.

Any ideas what might be causing this and how I can fix?

I'm sorry that I can't "help" but I can say I just ran into almost the EXACT same problem with my chain saw today. When I get it to run, while cutting, it's previous power just....goes away and it dies while holding the trigger. I've only the thing 1 time last year :(

FWIW, I had a similar problem with a string trimmer when it was the only tool, battery, and charger I had.  The problem turned out to be the charger, which reported fully charged when it was not.  Probably not relevant, but it might be.  Do you have two chargers?
