I'm having an issue with the blades not engaging unless the push handle is straight up

When the push handle of my self propelled mower is in it's proper position, the blades will not engage. However if I move the handle to between the 11:00 and 1:00 position (almost vertical), the blades engage. Has anyone else had this problem?

That has been mentioned here before. Seems there is a switch, or some kind of electric connection that breaks where the handle pivots. It's another built in safety feature. Give EGO CS a call and they will take care of you.
