how to open the cover ?
To remove the top green coloured cowling first remove the height adjuster knob (there are two small screws near the base of the knob itself. Second, remove the five screws near the back of the cowling above the catcher chute and sides. Lastly, peel back the two long stickers (1600 watts) on the front sides of the cowling to reveal the last two screws - seven in all. Grab the handle and pull back slightly and off.
Hi, we just bought RLM16E36S few months ago. It just stopped working. Please advise the next step to be taken.
If it is / was still under warranty then return it to where you purchased it from. Provided you have kept the original receipt (its a good idea to staple them to the instruction manual) then you should not have any trouble. I believe the warranty period is quite generous but there is little leeway if you dont have a receipt.
Mower has stopped. Possible overheating. How do I clean filter?
You have to remove the top cowl to properly clean out the old grass - not sure if this voids your warranty. The small motor is prone to overheating and grass clippings will build up under the cowling. If it has just stopped temporarily then turn it off and allow it to cool down as it has an automatic overload gizmo attached. It it has stopped permanently then get a refund if you can as repairs will often cost more than its worth. The motor seems prone to seizing or binding up causing it to overheat. Cutting long damp grass will also cause it to overload.
I have had a Ryobi RLM16E36S electric mower for about 18months. All good but suddenly it will not start using the same extension chord, changed that worked once but now that doesn't connect either. i am pressing all the right buttons to start it. Frustrating!
I would like to buy a Armature for my landmower. From where I can get it?
1. Does this use a battery or is it corded?
2. If corded, what is maximum reach of the cord?
3. Will an extension drop the voltage too much?
Corded. You have to also buy an extension lead to use. In my experience no the power is fine, but i only use a 20m lead. i think if you used more it would.
This mower requires 240 volts from a regular household power point. A standard 10 AMP extension cord should be OK but I would recommend a heavy duty cable for use outdoors. As far as distance is concerned there should be negligible voltage drop but amps may drop off a little once you start talking about 100s meters LOL
I am assembling a new RLM16E36S. I have got the quick release fastener (item 12 on the product plan) into the correct position as shown in the manual. But to get it tight I am afraid that exerting too much pressure would break it. How much pressure should I apply? Shouldn't it just snap into place?
