SOURCE: zipper is really stuck

sometimes dirt and debree can get stuck in there, try saturating it with a strong penetrating oil like PB Blaster, available at your local auto parts store, and let it soak in for about an hour and use a pair of pliers to get a good grip.

Put the switch in the center off position. That allows you to press the big black button in the front and take the vacuum attachment off. Replace the vacuum with the blower attachment and you should them be able to blow rather than vacuum.

SOURCE: My Black & Decker Leafblower Leaf Hog BV4000 type 2 quit running suddenly while using. It had run about an hour, was not warm to the touch and is 2 years old. Is thuis a common problem and what might

I have this unit. Mine stopped working today after being warm on the handle the last few uses. I opened the unit up (torx 15) and smelled, then found that a fused wire coming off the motor had burned/melted/separated at a plastic plug right inside the handle. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with it, but in this same compartment of the handle there was an anti-theft strip floating around. I called BandD and they said the BV4000 type ONE has been recalled. http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07005.html
But not the type 2. Even though the failure described for the type 1 is exactly what I found in the type 2.

Where do I attach the bag for the vacuum?


When the machine is converted to vacuum mode, the collection bag will go on the machine where the blower tube (long part) is connected for blowing mode.

Where do i switch theLEAF HOG FROM VACUUM TO BLOWER


Remove vaccuum tube. Allow the access door for the vacuum tube to shut all the way. Attatch the blower tube where you had the collection back for the vaccuum attatched. That is it.

Older leafhog don't know how to change over to blower instead of vacuum model Bv2500


Remove the vacuum tube completely from the bottom of the machine and make sure the impeller cover closes completely. Remove the collection bag off of the blower outlet. Now attatch the blower tube to that outlet on the blower. Done.

I can not get the Leaf Hog to swtich from vacumn to blower. Any suggestions?


it does not "switch"

The air intake becomes the vacuum with an attachment. The "blower tube" is then the vacuum exhaust.

the motor does not change directions.
