Next you will change the oil. To lower oil viscosity and get it moving freely run the engine for a few minutes. Now shut the engine off and roll the mower onto a piece of cardboard or drop cloth. Close the fuel line (if your mower has one) and unhook the spark plug as before. Find the oil filler tube and remove its cap. Often the cap also functions as a dipstick.
More than 1100 buyers have left five-star reviews of the LM2101 on Home Depots website. Austing wrote a review after a year-and-a-half of ownership and was impressed with how lightweight and quiet it is. He shared a story of hitting a metal pipe in his yard with the mower. It damaged the electronics and EGO sent him a brand new mower to replace it. Buyers also appreciate that the battery only takes about 40 minutes to recharge from dead.
To clean it first start with a cool engine. If your mower has a fuel valve switch it off. If you can disconnect the spark plug too. Next use a leaf blower to blast away any old dirt and major debris. Now gently lay the mower on its side fuel cap facing up. Try to get rid of any junk on the mowers underside as well.
