Mower started stalling at level 3 at some parts of my lawn. In the past, it would stall at level 2. The only way I could restart it is to set the deck higher. Any solution to this?
Sorry forgot to include those details. It's the 21-inch push model. It flashes orange then stops. I dont think my lawn is super thick. In the past the mower would stall at level 2, but lately it would even stall at level 3 at some parts of my lawn, again I don't think the thickness of my lawn has changed.
I have the 20" mower, and there is a transition in the grass between my yard and the neighbor's (it steps down towards his yard, about a 2-3" drop-off). If I just run the mower forward over it, it will bog down, blink orange and then stop). However, I have found a work around; I tip the mower back (like when you start up), go over the drop-off, then lower it carefully onto the grass, and then pull backwards to cut. I have found that when driving forward, the mower cuts more; and when going backwards it tends to cut less. In this situation, the work around has allowed me to "feather" in the transition step between our two yards.
