The guide width is a measure of how far from the
guide wire the product is allowed to travel when it
follows this to and from the charging station. The
area beside the wire which the product uses is
called the Corridor.
The product has a default setting for Medium
wide corridors. To further reduce the risk of
tracks forming, it is recommended to select as
wide corridor as possible. The Narrow corridor
setting is not normally recommended, but in a
garden with one or many narrow passages, a
narrow corridor may be the only option. The
Narrow corridor setting increases the risk for
tracks forming along the guide.

5 Maintenance
5.1 Introduction - maintenance
For better operating reliability and longer service
life: check and clean the product regularly and
replace worn parts if necessary. All maintenance
and servicing must be done according to
GARDENA's instructions. Refer to Warranty
terms on page 48.
GARDENA offers a special cleaning and
maintenance kit as an accessory. Contact your
GARDENA central service.
CAUTION: Never use a high-pressure
washer or even running water to clean
the product. Never use solvents for
cleaning.
When the product is first used, the blade disc and
blades should be inspected once a week. If the
amount of wear during this period has been low,
the inspection interval can be increased.
5.2.1 Chassis and blade disc
It is important that the blade disc rotates easily.
The edges of the blades should not be damaged.
The lifetime of the blades varies immensely and
depends for instance on:
1.
Set the Main switch to position 0.
2.
Lift the product onto its side.
3.
Clean the blade disc and chassis using for
example a dish brush. At the same time,
check that the blade disc rotates freely in
relation to the foot guard. Also, check that
the blades are intact and can pivot freely.
•
•
•
•
Operating time and size of the work area.
Type of grass and seasonal growth.
Soil, sand and use of fertilizers.
The presence of objects such as cones,
windfalls, toys, tools, stones, roots and the
like.
The normal life is 4 to 7 weeks when used under
favorable conditions. Refer to To replace the
blades on page 31 on how to replace the
blades.
Note: Working with blunt blades gives a poorer
mowing result. The grass is not cut cleanly and
more energy is needed resulting in the product
not mowing such a large area.
WARNING: The product must be
switched off before any maintenance is
done.
WARNING: Wear protective gloves.
5.2 Clean the product
It is important to keep the product clean. A
product with large amounts of grass stuck to it
will not cope as well with slopes. It is
recommended to clean using a brush.
30 - Maintenance
Inspect the blade disc and blades once a week.
5.2.2 Wheels
Clean around the front wheels and rear wheel as
well as the rear wheel bracket. Grass on the
wheels can impact on how the product performs
in slopes.
5.2.3 Cover
Use a damp, soft sponge or cloth to clean the
cover. If the cover is very dirty it may be
necessary to use a soap solution or washing-up
liquid.
5.2.4 Charging station
Clean the charging station regularly from grass,
leaves, twigs and other objects that may impede
docking.
WARNING: Use the plug to disconnect
the charging station before any
maintenance, or cleaning of charging
station or power supply.
968 - 002 -
5.3 Replace the blades
WARNING: Use blades and screws of
the right type. GARDENA can only
guarantee safety when using original
blades. Only replacing the blades and
reusing the screw can result in a screw
wearing during mowing. The blades
can then be propelled from under the
body and cause serious injury.
Replace worn or damaged parts for safety
reasons. Even if the blades are intact, they
should be replaced on a regular basis for the best
mowing result and low energy usage. All 3 blades
and screws must be replaced at the same time to
obtain a balanced cutting system. Use
GARDENA original blades embossed with the
crowned H-mark logotype, refer to Warranty
terms on page 48.
4.
Remove each blade and screw.
5.
Fasten new blades and screws.
6.
Check that the blades can pivot freely.
5.4 Firmware update
If service is done by GARDENA customer service
then available firmware updates are downloaded
to the product by the service technician.
5.5 Battery
WARNING: Only charge the product
using a charging station which is
intended for it. Incorrect use may result
in electric shock, overheating or
leakage of corrosive liquid from the
battery. In the event of leakage of
electrolyte flush with water and seek
medical help if it comes in contact with
the eyes etc.
WARNING: Use only original batteries
recommended by the manufacturer.
Product safety cannot be guaranteed
with other batteries. Do not use nonrechargeable batteries.
5.3.1 To replace the blades
1.
Set the main switch to position 0.
2.
Turn the product upside down. Place the
product on a soft and clean surface to avoid
scratching the body and the hatch.
3.
Remove the 3 screws. Use a straight slot or
cross-tip screwdriver.
968 - 002 -
CAUTION: The battery must be
charged fully before winter storage. If
the battery is not fully charged it can
be damaged and in certain cases be
rendered useless.
If the operating times for the product are shorter
than normal between charges, this indicates that
the battery is getting old and eventually needs
replacing.
Note: Battery life is dependent on the length of
the season and how many hours a day the
product is operating. A long season or many
hours of use a day means that the battery must
be replaced more regularly. The battery is fine as
long as the product maintains a well-cut lawn.

6.6 Find breaks in the loop wire
Breaks in the loop wire are usually the result of
unintentional physical damage to the wire such
as when gardening with a shovel. In countries
with ground frost, also sharp stones that move in
the ground can damage the wire. Breaks can
also occur due to the wire being stretched
excessively during installation.
Mowing the grass too low right after the
installation can damage wire insulation. Damage
to the insulation may not cause disruptions until
several weeks or months later. To avoid this,
40 - Troubleshooting
always select the maximum cutting height the
first weeks after installation and then lower the
height one step at a time every second week until
the desired cutting height has been reached.
A defective splicing of the loop wire can also lead
to disruptions several weeks after the splice was
done. A faulty splice can, for example, be the
result of the original coupler not being pressed
together hard enough with a pair of pliers, or that
a coupler of lower quality than the original
coupler has been used. Please first check all
known splices before further troubleshooting is
done.
968 - 002 -
A wire break can be located by gradually halving
the distance of the loop where the break may
have occurred until there is only a very short
section of the wire left.
The following method does not work if ECO
mode is activated. Make sure first that ECO
mode is turned off. Refer to ECO mode on page
25.
1.
Check that the indicator lamp in the charging
station flashes blue, which indicates a break
in the boundary loop. Refer to Indicator lamp
in the charging station on page 38.
Guide
2.
Check that the boundary wire connections to
the charging station are properly connected
and not damaged. Check that the indicator
lamp in the charging station is still flashing
blue.
POWER R L GUIDE
3.
To rectify the fault you will need boundary
wire, connector(s) and coupler(s):
a) If the suspected boundary wire is short
then it is easiest to exchange all of the
boundary wire between L and the point
where the guide wire is connected to the
boundary wire (thick black line).
b) If the suspected boundary wire is long
(thick black line) then do as follows: Put L
and GUIDE back to their original positions.
Then disconnect R. Connect a new loop
wire to R. Connect the other end of this new
loop wire at the middle of the suspected wire
section.
Switch the connections between the guide
wire and the boundary wire in the charging
station.
Start by switching connection L and GUIDE.
If the indicator lamp is lit with a solid green
light, then the break is somewhere on the
boundary wire between L and the point
where the guide wire is connected to the
boundary wire (thick black line in the
illustration).

between a solid green light and a flashing
blue light. Then follow instruction in step 5
below.
If indicator lamp still flashes blue in step 3
above: Put L and GUIDE back in their
original positions. Then switch R and
GUIDE. If indicator lamp now is lit with a
solid green light then disconnect L and
connect a new boundary wire to L. Connect
the other end of this new wire at the middle
of the suspected wire section. Follow the
same approach as in 3a) and 3b) above.
When the break is found, the damaged
section must be replaced with a new wire.
Always use original couplers.
If the indicator lamp now is green, then the
break is somewhere in the wire between the
disconnected end to the point where the
new wire is connected (thick black line
below). In that case, move the connection
for the new wire closer to the disconnected
end (roughly at the middle of the suspected
wire section) and check again if the indicator
lamp is green.
Continue until only a very short section of
the wire remains which is the difference
