Re: my hedge trimmer keeps switching off
It sounds like you may have a loose wire some where that is grounding out. You might want to check all wire connections to make sure that they are tight and also check for any bare spots in the wires were they could be touching metal and grounding its self out.

The line on my new 26cc Homelite would also feed out by itself. That started me thinking the line was wound backwards. I wrapped the line in the opposite direction as was shown on the bump feed reel and now the dang thing works although the bump feed needs to be "bumped" pretty hard to work. Is it possible that the reel was manufactured with the (string direction) arrows pointing the wrong direction? The new 26cc unit is also underpowered compared to my older 25cc trimmer.

How to Sharpen a Black and Decker Hedge Hog
Maintaining the sharpness of electric timmers can made landscape trimming easier with beautiful results.
Electric hedge trimmers make trimming hedges and bushes easier
and quicker than using manual hand-powered trimmers. Electric trimmers,
the most popular type in the U.S., cost less and require less
maintenance than gasoline-powered models. Electric trimmers are used
most often by homeowners with the Black and Decker Hedge Hog series
being very popular. While they are not premium products, electric
trimmers like the Black and Decker Hedge Hog trimmer can keep trimming
reliably for years with proper maintenance, including sharpening the
blade's teeth. Difficulty:
InstructionsThings You'll Need
Two medium size clamps
Dremel tool or similar hand-held multi-purpose tool
Grinding wheel attachment for hand-held tool.
Dremel 971 (or similar) aluminum oxide
grinding sharpening stone with a tip small enough to cover the flat
facet of a Hedge Hog blade tooth
Unplug the electric trimmer before trying to sharpen the teeth.
Clamp the electric trimmer to the work table using two clamps if
necessary so the Hedge Hog is firmly held down with the blade teeth
accessible over the edge of the work table.
Insert and secure grinding tip in hand-held multi-purpose tool.
Maneuver the grinding tip so it is perpendicular to the facet of the Hedge Hog tooth.
Sharpen teeth in one direction, being careful to try and maintain the
same cutting edge angle on the sharpened tooth of no less than 35
Make same number of grinding passes/grind the same length of time a few seconds on each tooth.
Tips & Warnings
This task should take about 15 minutes.
Keep a light touch; too much force can break the grinding surface.
For best results, insert the sharpening bit slightly less than all the way into the tool.
Sounds like the air screws need adjusted on the carburator. If there are 2 the one with the L above needs to be turned althe way to the right but not to tight and then backed out 1/2 turn to left. The one with the H anove it do the same except back it out 1 and 1/4 turns to left. If it only has 1 screw dot he same but back out 2 complete turns. Hope this helps?
