    That means your stator under the flywheel is shorted. Possibly need a new flywheel also. Magnets come unglued and stick to stator and short it out. Seen it happen on the dixies more than most for some reason.

    Again... what kind of problems are you having? What's the matter with your dealer?

    I love my Choppers.. any problems that I have had they have stood behind.

    Dixie Chopper has a website called **********.com If you register as a member on that site you can contact DC Service. He seems very heplful in resolving service issues with DC mowers.

    Edited to add: Well it looks like this forum censors out the name of DC's forum. But you can go to Dixie's website and click on the link to get there.

    mylons1, without specific information - i.e. model, and problem symptoms for starters - this is just another "My brother's sister's uncle's cousin's nephew's girlfriend's father had one and they were garbage" post.

    If you are indeed having an issue, this could be why you can't get any resolution from DC. Same applies to any make; they can't help you if you don't tell them what's wrong.
