With out seeing the trimmers it is a little difficult to tell but with process of elimination - you may want to check the blades to see if the bolts on the blades are to tight there should be very little play so the blades move freely, that wold cause it to heat up, or you may have a short in the wiring which could also cause it to heat up. For the wiring you will have to take the handle and housing apart. If you have to take it apart take your time and lay everything out in order that you take it apart so that all you have to do is go in reverse order to put it all back. Any problems or questions feel free to ask and I will gladly help.

My Hedge trimmer will start and run for 2 or 3 minutes, then it dies and will not start again until the next day. Any ideas what is wrong?


Withou make and model it's tough to be accurate so I'll need to make a presumption that it's electric.

First clean the blades thoroughly then spray them liberally with a light oil like WD40

It sounds like the blades are binding and causing a thermal shutdown of the motor. Allowing it to sit over night resets the thermal circuit breaker

My Black and Decker hedge trimmer's blades won't move, but smoke and a burning smell comes from the motor. Can it be fixed? How much would it cost?


Your blades are stuck together.
Had the same problem: when I turn on the trimmer, the motor would hum but the blades won't move.
What I did:
1. Sprayed a ton of wd40 between the blades
2. Took a screwdriver and kinda wedged it between the blades to get them unstuck. Also removed some guck between the blades.
And it worked!

Hedge trimmer starts fine then stops after 5 minutes


Carburetor high speed adjustment ( screw nearest the filter ) open ( counterclockwise ) 1/2 turn.
Adjust again as needed to run when hot.
make sure the gas mixture ratio is as required.

Remington Axcess hedge trimmer wont run at all.


Check your fuel lines. It is probably getting air into the system. Also check inside the gas tank to make sure the fuel pick up line is still attached.


If you need more assistance please provide an exact model number and I can better help you.

Cuts out after 10 minutes


Sounds like fuel tank vent problem , air has to get into tank
sometimes its vented by fuel cap but a lot of hedge trimmers use
a duck bill valve right thru tank or hooked to hose .
To test if this might be the problem loosen gas cap when it starts to die .
good luck
