Electric Lawnmower tripping circuit-breaker, Motor still runs. Answered
I know you folks must have seen this question many times, but I still have to ask: my electric lawnmower tripped the circuit breaker (I suspect due to excessively long grass), and kept tripping it after I reset the breaker. The weird thing about it is that each time I reset the breaker and restart the lawnmower, the motor would actually start and run for half a second, before the breaker trips again. I infer that means the motor itself is not shot, and possibly not the rectifier either? Can anyone help with this? Thanks in advance!?
