Just got my LM2102SP self-propelled mower. The blades won't spin but it moves forward. I got this so we would not have hassles with gas and pull starting for a petite woman. The book says to re-torque the blade which we did (not many Joe Blow's have torque wrenches??). Well we do and torqued as directed and it still does not work. I have been on hold forever trying to get help. I think this is going back to Home Depot to get an electric start Honda. The kids and I got this for Mothers Day gift so this really stinks!!!!

Don't give up so fast. This is a great mower that will serve you well and be a lot less hassle than any gas mower.

I just want to confirm the method to start the mower to insure you have it correct.

With the battery properly charged and installed...

1. Push & hold in the green button (release after the motor has started).
2. Pull the long black level to start the blade motor.

You probably know that the self propelled motor works independently from the blade motor when the green lever is engaged.

If this isn't working call the support line.
If it is faulty you will be able to exchange for a new one at the HomeDepot without any problem except for the hassle it caused you.
