AHS 4-16 Bosch hedgetrimmer

I have the above split open. Two problems have occurred. I have browsed for a parts blowout plan but no luck.

First, a spring suddenly popped out and is approx. 1" long. I think its for the squeeze trigger on the handle but cant see where it goes.
Second, the bushing on the bottom side, [looks a bit like a hat with no lid] also fell off. I have put that back on and it slots in well. It does not appear to fit the other way round. Is that right? Thankyou for any help.

There is a small protusion in the plastic of the handle that acts as a seat for the spring. If you look carefully it is suddemly very obvious. The same is true with the soring for the upper handle.

What is the best way to sharpen bosch AHS 45 16 HEDGE TRIMMER

Please understand, if you do, you may well start a business!
You will have to take it all apart, and then take either a file or a grind stone and resurface the blades.
I know you can learn this skill, if you do not know how, but this time it will take you to do it right will be hours, and if you charge a reasonable rate to do this for others, you may find it cheaper to buy a new one!
You may be able to find a web-site by looking on-line that will tell you exactly you to do this.
God bless your efforts.

I have a Bosch hedge trimmer AHS 52 LI and yesterday when I tried to fit the battery to the trimmer it would not fit

Make sure that you are using the right battery, positioning it right to match how it goes the receptacle. Last thing is do not be afraid to give it a good push in there. New ones in particular have a firm seating which can take a little bit to get it in.

How to open a Bosch AHS 4-16 Hedge Trimmer ?

Not sure how to open it - if engine runs but clutch doesn't engage on revving perhaps the clutch has seized... point to bear in mind though is if you can't open the gear box (don't know how to) you most certainly won't be able to change a part inside - you will just get fiddly bits everywhere and never get them back where they should be - best get a pro to give you their opinion on whether it is worth the cost of getting it fixed.

Bosch AHS52-16 hedge trimmer inop, changed fuse and mains lead. Are there any internal fuses or diodes likely to be faulty?

No internal fuses or diodes, but it probably has a set of brushes you can check and replace if necessary. Look for the brushes on both sides of the motor (you may have to open the case to do this). If they're there at all, one will be on each side of the motor at the "free end" (away from any mechanism).

My Bosch AHS 45 16 electric hedge trimmer start, is there anything you can suggest?

Hi Dan Walsh, When an electric motor won't start, it could be an open temperature device in the winding of the motor itself. If you have brushes and they are worn, then one or maybe two of the brushes can't stay inside the brush holder. They are spring loaded and if worn out can pop out. Also, if the winding are open, then there is not continuity. This will cause the condition you described. Not the best news, but it might answer your question.
Good Luck!

I have Bosch hedge trimmer AH15 63-16C which has stopped cutting. It still seems to be working as it should and the cutters moving as normal but suddenly stopped cutting? Just wondering if this is fixable...

This sounds similar to a problem I have with my Bosch AHS 60 24s. The blades are moving but not independantly and therefore not in a cutting action. I took it apart and the bottom blade has slipped off the drive wheel. I put it all back as it should be but as soon as I used it again, the same thing happened. I'm not sure why this is happening, it may be that the motor end of the bottom blade has become slightly bent, so I will be trying to straighten at the weekend. The cost of replacement blades is prohibitive and time for a new hedge trimmer. Has anyone else had this problem and a different solution.
