Resolved Question:

I have a Bosch Rotak 43 corded lawnmower that has started to emit a burning smell. It still runs and cuts but the smell indicates something is wrong. Is this likely to be repairable?

Ozone smell, a pungent smell ? Likely the brushes arching on the armature. Brushes can be worn excessively or the armature can be shorted out. Motor will fail soon. It will require a new motor to repair! Sorry.
