Hi u812, 


Welcome to The Community.


Your mower has a 2-year manufacturer's warranty. You can take it to your local Home Depot for service or call the number in the operator's manual.


Before you bring it in, try a different extension cord to eliminate that as a possibility. Also look under the mower to make sure that the blade is not obstructed. 


Thanks for asking. Good luck.

It looks like those mowers use about 12amps.  Make sure there aren't other devices/appliances on same circuit possibly overloading it.
