21" self propelled ego. lazt time used, 2 weeks ago, after mowing 30 minutes, i stopped. on trying to restart, blade spun briefly, then blinked orange and stopped. after a break, it worked, so i thought maybe an overheating issue. however, this morning, same problem. fully charged batter, starts to spin and in anout a second stops with blinking orange light. mower is about 2 years old. any ideas?

Steve, more than likely, it's the battery. I had a similar problem with a new power head with pole saw attachment. Home Depot returned it for exchange the entire package. If within 90 day return period, take it back to Home Depot or afterwards, call customer service at
1-855-EGO-5656 (1-855-346-5656). Call early during the workday to avoid long waits.
