TROUBLESHOOTING

Electric machines prefer to run at a constant speed If you encounter some heavy / thick grass that slows the motor down. slow down the forward motion to allow the motor to run back up to its normal operating speed

The electronic speed controller within the Masport smart lawn mower has been design to protect itself from damage by only operating within a safe operating zone If you cut some particularly long / dense grass (first cut of the season etc) the controller may get warm to the point that it will protect itself by switching off the motor No worries. it will allow the motor to operate again after it has cooled down This is not a fault; it is by design to provide you with a long term reliable product

The same is true of a separate electronic controller built into the Lithium Ion Battery pack and coupled with another one built into the smart charger They have been designed to work in unison to protect the high performance Lithium Ion Battery. resulting in a long trouble free operating life and providing the optimum charge every time In achieving this. the controller may sometimes prevent the battery from being charged if the previous run resulted in an overly warm battery pack Waiting a brief period after cutting the grass before putting the machine on charge will allow the battery pack to cool down to enable it to receive a full fresh charge These smarts have been incorporated to protect the various items from damage and provide the user with a reliable long term product

To allow the free running of the motor. do not cut with an excessively low cut height Two light cuts are better than one heavy cut especially when not using the catcher
