I used it yesterday and today it will not start. Battery is full charge. Button key is in place.

I would first take a meter and test that the battery actually charged. If that tests out fine ( should read at about 12.8 to 13.5 Vdc), I would then check all the wired connections to make sure they did not come loose.

Need instructions on changing the spool on electric grass trimmer/edger

Turn the trimmer over, I put it in my lap.Remove the orange spool cap by squeezing with thumb & forefinger. It will come right off. Remove & discard(there has got to be something they can be recycled as?) If you are right handed, hold the new spool firmly with left hand with flat side with the arrows up, keep a firm grasp & use small needle nosed pliers(I use hemostats) etc. to free the loose end of the line where it is looped thru the 2 slots. Keeping hold of the spool so it doesn't all unwind, let enough out to feed thru the hole on the side of the compartment where the old spool was. 2-3" will be enough. Then, place the spool into it's compartment with the flat arrow side up.Keep a good grip on the spool until you get it into place. Replace the spool cap by aligning it in the 2 slots that it came from & gently squeezing again until it locks into place & you are set to go. Don't worry about feeding the line out to proper length, it will do that all by it's self.

Battery dead had trimmer lest than 1 yr

If you like the trimmer you can send the battery pack off to various places who will put new (and better) batteries in it. Do a web search for "rechargeable tool batteries" or "battery pack replacements" there may be a place nearby

Is there any place to send a shaver to be repaired? My trimmer broke. It works but will slide completely out and then have to push it back in.

If you don't want to attempt to undertake the repair yourself, you can contact Electric Shaver Service in Lincoln, Nebraska.

They sell new shavers and replacement parts, as well as provide a repair service for many brands of shavers and clippers. They can repair your Braun shaver for you.

Just go to their web site at and click on the repair service link and fill out the form and follow their instructions for sending in your shaver. Typically, they can do most repairs in about a week from the time they receive it in their shop.

I use them to get repair parts for my shavers and recommend them to family and friends as a good place for parts (and service).

They also sell new shavers too. Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I have a Power Glide Cordless String trimmer that will not run. I feel it might be the electrical switch in the handle. It wa only used a couple of times & suddenly quit working. It was opened and the...

O.k. first ... Are you using an exterior plug?? Check and make sure you are getting power to the plug on the trimmer. If so, I would guess that it would be cheaper to replace the trimmer than to go to the manufacturer or a repair shop. If you like to tinker, go to Radio Shack and get a 20 amp rated switch and hardwire the darn thing. If you do something like this, ALWAYS SWITCH THE HOT (BLACK) WIRE!!! Never the white one.

Stops running

if you bought it recenly and still able to return or exchange at store, try that first. if not, check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.
