• If the motor still runs and sounds normal remove the blade and refit.
• The gearbox is possibly faulty and may need repairing.
• If the motor still runs but sounds noisy a new armature and gearbox may be required.
• If the full machine shuts down in the middle of cutting, this may be due to a damaged blade, which will cause an overload and the electrics will shut the machine down. Replace the blade.
The head of the machine will not pull down or the blade guard will not return.
Check the guard linkage is still connected and working - See the operator’s manual.
Check that the head max height screw is tightened up correctly and not missing.
