“4 mows and motor burns out”

★☆☆☆☆

written by CarolAJones on 02/06/2014

Motor burnt out after four mows. After a month I am still waiting for redress. I would not recommend Bosch nor B & Q.

My motor failure was caused by a piece of the plastic mains cable clamp at motor end entering the rotating motor armature and ripping apart one of the motor field coils (poor quality cable clamp) there are probably other poorly designed parts - A good product let down by lack of quality control, being a retired electrical enginner with many years spent rewinding & repairing all types of electric drives I intend to remove the motor housing of my replacement mower and look for anything that could possibly detach and enter the fast turning parts
I would like to completely dismantle, inspect and rebuild the drive parts but will not due to the warranty, the manufacturer should pull random products and do this
