Question about Black & Decker Leaf Hog 12-AMP Electric Blower/Vacuum #BV4000
I accidentally sucked up my dogs hollow rubber play toy and was unable to turn it off quick enough - it made it almost thru I had to pull it out with needle nose pliers then when I started it back up it made a funny noise so I shut it off right away - when I went to turn it back on nothing - I let it sit for an hour and still it will not work - I am afraid I fried the motor? And getting this fixed would probably almost cost as much as a new hog?
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 !
