Self-propelled mower moves but does not mow

Bought a new LM2102SP self-propelled mower. I powered up the battery to full charge. After installing battery, I can get the mower to propel about the yard, but the mower function does not start up. I’m depressing all of the handles, but get nothing. This is very disappointing.

The sequence is important to engage the mower; it's a safety feature to prevent accidental starts. As duane said, push green button in and hold while pulling the bale back to start. Once started, you release the green button. Also for the self propel release shortly before you want it to stop, turn and engage the self propel again. May seem awkward st first, but you'll get used to it quickly.

Just got my 2102sp back from ego repair shop couldn’t believe when I go to start it thinking all is well and should be good as new but no it’s doing the same damn thing when I brought it in 2 months ago. Called customer service told them the issue and they’re shipping me a new mower. So that’s cool. Just saw the email with the tracking earlier today. They're also sending me the rma for the old mower to ship in the new box. Of course

Used mower about 20 times.  Blade will not work self propel ok.  Does not cut very well leaves high streak in middle of cut.  Bought new blade no difference.  Love no gas & light weight.  Everything else about "mower" sucks.  Glad I still have 10 yr old Honda.
