This motor assembly on your lawn mower is responsible for driving the blades to cut grass. If the motor malfunctions, the blades may struggle to cut grass or not spin at all. Additionally, you may experience overheating, grinding, squealing, or rattling noises. Neglecting to replace the motor will result in excessive stress on the mower, leading to breakdowns and expensive repairs. To remove the existing motor, gather a screwdriver, nut driver, and adjustable wrench. Ensure the machine is turned off and wait for the blade to come to a complete stop. Flip the machine over and secure the blade with a 2 by 4 to prevent movement. Remember to wear protective gloves while handling the blade. Remove any spacers or washers, and then detach the blade. Proceed to remove the mower shroud and disconnect any wires and brushes connected to the motor. Finally, remove the old motor from the machine. This replacement part is sourced directly from the original equipment manufacturer and is sold individually.
