- Sep 4, 2003Now that's some weird behavior!!! Mine was very close to the A/C unit when I started it, but I always start it from that spot. I'm thinking the A/C must have kicked on or off and confused it.

did a 180, and started edging clockwise. It went down an incline
that it normally travels up, and gave the a "start elsewhere" error.
Another time, I started edge mode and it went about 5 feet and
stopped with a "restart elsewhere". This repeated 4 times at various
points in the zone. I skipped edge mode, let it mow, and then went
back and had it edge. It did so with no problems. I have
succesfully edged that zone 3 or 4 times since then.
I have no idea what caused any of this, but it has never prevented me
from getting that well manacured lawn look, and is occasionally quite
