Trouble with my bv4000 black and decker leaf hog.vacuum is weak and lacks power

Check and clean filter. If electric check brushes for proper motor operation. If battery is used, make sure it is charging properly. A bad battery will not work unit properly.

Leaf Hog stopped operating

The plug then the cord. There is allot of stress where the cord enters the unit. if it looks worn you can rewire a new cord on it.

My motor brushes at end of life for a Black and Decker electric leaf blower. Where can I get them? Black and Decker leaf hog, model BV400 type 4, Cinderson 90510850 motor. Black and Decker site no help...

Try Platt Electrical supply - 800-257-5288 ( BLACK & DECKER #89754-01 REPLACEMENT BRUSH. It seems the entire motor head was manufactured by DeWalt and is now obsolete. I don't know if these brushes will fit, but someone there may help.
Good Luck!

My electric B&D leaf blower started to slow down and I could see a bright arc light in the motor housing. I have had it a few years but only used it about 4 times

Hi, sounds to me like you got worn brushes on your electric motor. On units that you can change brushes easily there is a screw plug that is located where each brush is positioned. This way the brushes can be easily replaced without removing the plastic cover. If your unit does not have this access, then the brushes are probably soldered in. In this case your better off checking the warranty and/or buying a new one because the motor is burnt. You can avoid this problem by using a thicker extension cord that is plugged to a dedicated receptacle. This way the motor will not heat up as much and burn out prematurely. Hope this helps.

Need carbon brush replacments

google for sources. In the 80's i was employed by a co that probuced brushes according to specs. We received them in bags, or envelopes, etc. If you cannot find them through the orig. mfgr., send the remaining brush or the holder, with as much of the brush as is remaining for proper dim. estimate and brush composition. some brushes have the composition of dry charcoal. while some such as "EGO" can substitute for a very soft pencil.

BV4000 is electrically sparking in the upper part of the motor when running, looks like in/near the windings. Motor has slowed too. Seems hot.

The motor/armature is burnt. It will eventually fail completely. Many times too small a supply cord and too long footage length will overheat the motor. Anything over 25' should have a 12 guage power cord.

Bad spring in carbon brush, motor won't run not enough tension on brush so metal casing is scraping causing sparks. Other brush is ok

You can go to and look up parts for your model. But I have an idea the parts and shipping are going to be more costly than a new unit. In the industry it is considered a throw away unit.
Good day.

Leaf Hog trouble

The carbon brushes wear out after a few years .B&D does not carry replacements . I took out one of the old brushes and found an exact replacement at an electronics parts surplus store . The replacement didn't have the little endcap on it so I used the ones from the old brushes and pigtailed the connector wire .
Its been working fine since !
