Hello maggie,

When you install the 624374-00 Push Ring on the axle. You will want to press it on with the prongs facing out towards you.

How do I remove the old blade spacer from the mower? I have removed the cutting blade and fan but an not able to pull the blade spacer off the shaft. Is there a trick I am missing? I am not sure it needs replacing but the motor spins but not the blade.

WJA

Hello 1169769,

Usually you can get the 90561895 nut off, by holding the blade and using a socket wrench. But sometimes they get pretty hard to remove. You might have to use an impact wrench. If you don't have one, hopefully one of your neighbors does.

How do you remove a push ring to replace a wheel or flap guard on a Black and Decker Cordless Electric mower.

Hi walter99,
Really they should be used only once and replaced with a new one.I just grab it with a pair of channel locks and twist it off.If you want to use the old one you can sometimes rock them back and forth while pulling and this will often get them off.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Question: Switch Key

Gina

There are two different keys that I've seen pictured. One is $23, the other $3. Which one, and what's the difference?
WJA
Reply: Switch Key

WJA

Hello Gina,

It all depends on what type number you have for the CMM1200 Mower. Type 1 uses the part number 90505894 Switch key. Whereas type numbers 2,2A & 3 use the part number 90530033 Key. You will need to look at the manufactures label to see which type you have, if you cannot see a type number, consider it a type 1.

Hope this helps,

Hello carrninja,

The tool you will need to unscrew the screws that hold the 90508011 battery pack, is called a Torx Wrench, they come different number sizes. The 330019-13 is a size T-20. Torx wrenches can be found in any hardware store.

Hello Cary,

I checked all four types of the CMM1200 mower and the charger part number 90556983 is the part number the manufacture has listed for all of them. You may want to contact a Black and Decker Factory Service Center near you and see if they have an answer for you.

is it hard to replace the battery pack for the cmm1200? I am not very handy.
WJA
Reply: Battery Pack For Cmm1200

WJA

Hello 1139127,

It may be a little involved to replace the 90508011 battery pack. I have never done it myself. It looks like you have to remove the 90512673 upper shroud. Then you should be able to see the battery. It will have the 242881-00 battery strap that you have to remove. It looks like it has some foam blocks that will just come out with no problem. Then make a wiring diagram if you feel that you need to when you install the new battery. I would think you will be able to do this with no problems.

If I order this part, does it come with clear directions on where and how to install it?
WJA
Reply: Circuit Breaker

WJA

Hello 1063732,

I am not sure that it comes with instructions on how to install it. What you could do is to make your own wiring diagram before taking the old one off. Then you'll know exactly how to install the new one.

My lawn mower will have a full charge but after about 10ft of cutting it will power off. It will start again if I remove the key and wait a minute but repeat the process again. The grass is not thick so I don't think it is being overloaded. Could this be a faulty circuit breaker? I also noticed that one of the shunted brushes is worn very low and you can see white sparks coming from it while it is running with the cover off. Would like to repair this mower but I'm not sure exactly which part is faulty.
WJA
Reply: Circuit Breaker

WJA

Hello cttcdonato,

You may have a worn 90541220 Breaker. First you may want to inspect the armature. You will want to look at the commentator (Where the brush makes contact), look for darkened bars or bars that are not in line with the others. If your armature is shorted this could cause the breaker to open the circuit. If the 241648-01 Brush is too short, the arcing may be causing this problem also.

Question: CMM1200 Type 0 ?

Black

My mower has this on the rear door:

MODEL CMM1200 24
TYPE 0 2007 10-49

I have not seen CMM1200 "Type 0" mentioned anywhere. For the purpose of finding parts, would it be closest to a Type 1, or Type 2?

Thanks!

Hi Black,
I'm not showing that B&D ever made a type 0.They made a type 1 ,2,2a and 3.What part are you looking for? Your date code shoes that it was made on the 10th week of 2007.
Black
Reply: CMM1200 Type 0 ?

Black

Thanks Tinker. It was purchased in Apr 2007. Right now I'm looking for the circuit breaker, #84 on both Type 1 and 2's parts chart, and info for the breaker says it fits both Type 1 and 2. On the Black & Decker web site it mentioned Type 1, 2, 2a and 3, but no "Type 0". I'd really like to find out what "Type 0" is about.

Question: Charging Connector Wiring

Can any one tell me where the black wire from the white charging input belongs? The black lead is in the middle of the white connecting block on the inside of the handle housing. Mine is broken off at one end and I do not see where it was attached. My unit is a type 1 cmm1200.

Hello Mike1,

In speaking with the manufacture. They don't have a delivery date on the 90556983 charger. You might try one of the many Dewalt factory service centers around the county to see any have it in stock.

Hope this helps,

I looked at the part breakdown,hard to explain but it must go on trigger or throttle handle ....just look at the handle and where it fits and moves and the spring has to connect on it some where...I have to stare at items like this,and figure out which way it goes.....kinda figures out that way. sorry

Reply: Short In Handle

Jeff

I had a problem with my cmm1200 mower while back, just shut off when mowing & wouldn't restart at all even after recharging. Problem was the switch box inside the handle. I thought the key may have been an issue too but turns out it wasn't. It's part # 90505886. Also had the starter handle pin break like others have said. Put a screw into where the pin broke so the spring could have something to hold onto ( some JB weld around the screw base to help keep the screw secure)
Lately, when I use my CM1200, I've encountered a problem where the mower will just shut down after mowing a little while. If I let it sit and cool for a few minutes it starts and runs fine for a short while then shuts off again. This happens when cutting fairly short, dry grass so it's not being overloaded.

Could this be a faulty thermal cutoff switch?

Sounds like a faulty circuit breaker, actually a common problem. They seem to go bad after a few years, last year I had to replace the breaker on my CMM1000.

Here is the replacement part for the CMM1200:
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/breaker-p-104563.html

The breaker is part #84 on the CMM1200 drawing shown here at ereplacementparts.com. Look for number 198 near the top of the drawing, *then* look to the lower-right of that to find the breaker, part #84.

I had the same problem and ordered the circuit breaker. It is located under the housing which is easily removed by taking off 4 screws. It is very obvious where to place the new part once the housing is removed. I have not tried it yet but will respond with the results within then next few days. I did make sure that once the housing was off I disconnected the positive lead off the battery before I replaced the breaker. I started it up afterward and it ran but I have to wait until the next time I mow before I judge any results.

I had the same thing happen. At first, I thought that just the little spring had fallen out (a small $1.00 purchase). After finding the proper type of screwdriver to remove the plastic screws on the clamshell part that holds the switch lever, I found that a tiny piece of plastic had broken off inside the unit. It could not be replaced or repaired (glued or otherwise) since it holds the orange starting handle). I am in the process of ordering the whole clamshell unit now. Ugh. There are too many fragile plastic parts on this product.

I complained to Black and Decker. Fortunately, there is a 2 year warranty and they paid to ship it to the nearest repair facility (80 miles away), fixed it, and shipped it back within a week. They even had a really nice box and shipping label delivered to pack it up. Superb service.

This just happened to me this morning. I took the lever housing apart and saw that the black plastic pin on which the lever rotates had broken. Gluing it would not work.

Rather than put another plastic piece in the housing, I drilled the rest of the pin out of the sleeve. I accidentally continued drilling through the outside of the housing, but realized that may not be such a bad thing. My plan now is to buy a bolt, nut and washer, and replace the plastic pin (which takes too much force to be plastic) with a metal bolt that won't break again. The bolt will extend all the way to the outside of the housing, where the nut and washer will keep it in place, allowing me to tighten or loosen it as needed.

I'm sure this voids the warranty, but I think I'm out of warranty anyway. And even if I'm not, the repair place is out of town and I just don't want to mess with it.

Response # 5 has it right. I made the bolt -through-the-whole assembly repair very easily for pennies last year. still working like a champ. Make sure to drill a large enough hole and select a bolt that fits the hole exactly for a stable hinge point. I think I used a 1/4 in x 3 in thick bolt with a nylon locknut.

Another "well done" for Tarl on the suggestion. My cheap plastic pin broke as well. I drilled a 3/16" hole thru both ends of the clamshell and bought a 2 1/2" machine bolt with nut and washer, got it all back together and working great again! Thanks for your tip!

Question: CMM1200 Key Box/Switch

aart

I, apparently, have the type 1 CMM1200, because it employs a key that must be inserted and turned to allow the mower to run. However, this box/switch does not seem to work right because the key has to be at right the right spot, or must be held in a specific location in order for the unit to run. I have tried new keys, but with the same results. Is there a replacement box/switch for this unit... OR, is there a good way to bypass this ridiculous feature? I realize that this may have been considered a safety feature, but does it also switch the unit to allow charging? Or is it strictly a safety feature to prevent accidental actuation?
Please email any reply to link removed

Thanks so much!

I have the Black & Decker CMM1200 24VDC cordless mower. This unit employs a keyed start switch... which I believe makes this unit a Type I, if I'm am not mistaken.
Do I understand correctly that the [I]Type II[/I] has done away with this keyed method?
If so, is there a way to retrofit this unit to be [U]key-less[/U]?
The problem I am having is that the key/switch does not always work. Sometimes it will if jiggled or fiddled with... but does not remain on while in use.
As you can imagine, this is EXTREMELY frustrating, not to mention inconvenient.
I have tried new keys, but this does not seem to be the issue, and seems to be the switch itself (not the switch actuated by the lever, but the one actuated by the turned key right at the recharge receptacle)... which does not [U]appear [/U]to be a replaceable part!! ...of course.

If there is no retrofit, does anyone have any recommendations on how to bypass this ridiculous key/switch? My main concern is that there may be a recharge mode that is switched when the key is in the off position (DPDT switch). Does anyone know if this is the case?

If anyone has ANY information as to this circuitry or retrofit, or any other suggestions, I would appreciate it.

aart12, I have a cmm1200 type 2, I just now determined its a type 2 by taking the clamp shell apart. I noticed when comparing the parts break down and parts list, type 2 has p/n681269-00(spring) and p/n 90529879(pin). Type 1 has the spring but no pin there like type 2. Someone gave me this mower to get it out of their garage, and it was not working. Mine has a full charge on it, but when I insert the key and turn it on, and then pull the switch lever up to engage it, nothing happens. Only a clicking noise. Looking at mine dis-assembled when I do this I noticed the part where the pin goes moves and the clicking is coming from within the conversion assembly. So, some unrelated information, being POOR and a disabled Veteran, meaning I cannot afford the $2.35 for the 2 parts, I am going to have to try to "JERRY" rig it by opening the circuit and letting the key act as an ignition switch, if that is possible or straight wire it somehow. Anyway, noticed your post it caught my eye, and am assuming you have a type 2 and not a type 1 based on the above info.. If the tech who reviews these has another idea, do email me and give me some shade tree tech/mechanic help.. thanks

I have had a Black & Decker CMM1200 battery powered lawn mower for about 2 years. During that time I have replaced the 24 volt, 2 amp battery charger 2 times. Out of curiosity I opened both failed chargers and found that the 2 amp fuse failed in both of them, probably due to another failed part. Its getting to be very expensive to replace these chargers. Does anyone have a schematic for this B & D charger (B & D or DeWalt part number 90556983 or obsolete part number 90505885) so I can fix it myself? Does anyone out there repair these chargers? Is there another charger I can buy - either an upgraded B & D/DeWalt charger or a different charger that someone else makes that I can buy?
Thank you.
I have the same issues as everyone else. They mower was great under month 20 then I had the charger go out and the closest service center was out of business. The next closest was 180 miles away, either north or south. SO for the cost of gas I ordered a new one. Then about one month later the "conversion handle box", as they noted broke. So I called and they want 85 bucks because they no longer make the current one. The current one was only 29.00. I would feel like it was okay until I read that everyone else had he same problem.
Thanks to previous on-line hints, I just repaired the "orange" hand switch. Took it apart carefully, drilled out the broken plastic rod leftovers that acts as the pivot axle (passes inside the spring and mounts into two plate insertion holes that need to be hollowed out carefully with a 3/8 " drill, not too deep), and replaced it with a small metal rod (someone suggested a 3/8 " door hinge, cut to 1.5 "). I used a short screwdriver tip (pop out kind) instead. Works fine.

Who, in their right mind, would use plastic rod for a moving part that is used every time you start the engine. Not an engineer I hope. Silly design, not too clever !

The rest of this machine is pretty sound and durable so far (2.5 years). BUT...why would B&D risk losing a customer who pays hundreds of dollars over a 5 cent tiny piece of metal ???

This really baffles me... !

Thanks Jerry,
I just had the same thing happen to my mower after about 20 months. I was thinking the same thing (why would anyone use cheap plastic for a mechanical pivot). I was also thinking about drilling all the way through the plastic housing on both sides and insert a screw all the way through and secure it with a nut on the other side. I haven't taken the switch apart...do you think this would work?

I had the exact same problem. Here's a good fix: Open the handle compartment. You'll need to drill out the remains of the old switch pole (3/8" drill). Then cut 1-1/2" off a standard door hinge pin. It fits perfectly, it's metal so it won't break, and it works fine.

I too have have this problem. Being my father's daughter, I decided I would try to fix it myself. Of course my brain didn't take the easy route. I went to our local hardware store and bought a length of metal rod with the same circumference. Back home I got out my unused Dremel (that I knew would come in handy some day) and went about pulling the casing apart (while taking digital photos of each thing I took apart so that I could remember where everything came from). I used my drill to empty the holes of the stuck broken remnants and fit into the hole the cut piece of metal (8 tries to get the proper length, mind you). That was last summer and it is still holding well. Buying the rod and having to cut multiple lengths was fine. Saved me from buying a whole new handle casing. I did my dad proud and me too!

I agree, cheap design on the plastic plug which broke off in it's housing area. I used a small drill bit and drilled trough the center of the broken off plug and then used a screw to screw the handle back on and then just put the handle casing back together. It works fine.

This is a great source of info. After reading some of the responses, it occurred to me that I could use the same 3/8 drill bit as a pin. I did have to cut it to a 2 inch length and not 1 1/2 as Jeff did. Works great now. Thanks

Same problem here in Pittsburgh, which developed only after 3-4 years, probably because of my small lawn. I was so glad to find this thread on the web, which validated my impression of both the source of the problem and the possible solution. Without the shared experience of others I never would have had to courage to take on this repair. I drilled out the plastic with a 5/16 bit, being careful to not go all the way through, and took a hacksaw to a 15D common nail to make a 1.75" pin (I cut pieces of stiff wire to find the right length to cut). I came to the nail as the right source after realizing that the hacksaw was not making much progress on a hardened steel screwdriver rod.
Kudos to previous respondents and to the ereplacements web site - a really great resource. Raspberries to B&D, who clearly realized early on that there was a serious design flaw in the throttle of Type 1 machines (hence the appearance of 'conversion kits') and who really should be preemptively replacing them at no cost for all of us pioneering early purchasers of the CMM1200.
At first, this mower seemed too good to be true! Then the wires on the charger lost contact, and I had to replace the charger. Now I find the switch handle has come loose, apparently because the plastic pin that holds it snapped, a failure noted by several other reviewers. This means the whole unit encasing the switch lever has to be replaced. The idea of shipping the whole mower back to company seems like excessive effort to me. I will try to have it fixed locally, but it annoys me that such an otherwise good machine has such a flimsy way to anchor the switch lever.
