Dies when I start to move it. I bought my mower almost a year ago and it is wonderful, but this year I have have had this problem twice now. Mowing my yard just fine until the battery dies, put another battery in so I can continue and it starts just fine but when I start to move it to mow it dies. I have 2 batteries and it does this with either one of them. I took it to my local Home Depot and the associate & I put on the ground so I could show him what it does and it worked fine. Here I am again with the same problem about a month later. Does anyone have any suggestions on what could be the problem?

Unclamp the green handle locks. Pull handle back all the way until you see the black lines, then clamp them. Problem should be fixed. Its from you pushing the mower, it is collapsing the handle slightly.
