- Sep 9, 2010I have the same issue, but thankfully only rarely. One observation I've made is that at these times the four holes (one per corner of the mower) tend to be plugged with grass clippings. Once I clean these out, things tend to improve. It's possible the sensors are located at the top of these recesses, and the clippings are enough to suppress the reception of signals from the perimeter wire.
Hope this helps.
