I have the ego power+ mower and am having a problem with the mower idling down to a stop immediately after starting g. Battery is good, handle is fully extended, clips are good. Not sure what else the problem could be. Please help???

Ron, the most common cause of this seems to be the clips coming loose and the handle sliding down, shutting the mower off as you describe; a slow ramp down and gradual shut-off.

Does the mower continue to run if you are not moving it?  If so, can you pull it backwards without it shutting off?

If you can't keep it running at all, even sitting still, you may need to give Ego a call to diagnose and get you fixed up.
