Go to www.toolpartsdirect.com and in the search box select brand and enter your model number and you should be able to find a break-down of your machine which will give you an idea as to how it goes together.I tried the GT249/H1 and GT249 as the model number and it didn't come up so you will have to look for a tag with the model and serial number on it for the correct number.

My Black & Decker trimmer starts and stops whenever I move the trimmer in any direction -- any advise as to how to solve this problem?


I'm not familiar with your machine, BUT... that description of symptom sounds suspiciously like a bad/poor electrical connection.

The problem could be in many places:
  • plug
  • cord
  • switch
  • brushes
  • internal electrical wiring
The "solution" to this problem is for someone who knows what s/he is doing, to troubleshoot the defective machine, determine the defect, and properly repair or replace the defective part.

My electric hedge trimmer blades do not move when it is turned on. Suggestions? hs2400 date code 20021249


Check that the bolts or screws holding the two blades together aren't too tight preventing the blades sliding. Lubricate the blades also with WD40.

Black & Decker GT370-GT371 20 inch hedge trimmer - electrical fault in front handle causing difficulty in starting/resuming cutting. There is no local servicing and help from B&D was restricted...


Your best bet would be to use http://www.eReplacementParts.com as a source to get your Black and Decker parts and than use their tool repair forum and submit this question. They have licensed mechanics that repair these things all the time, so I'm sure they could put together an easy fix.

Accidently cut cable on GT450 hedge trimmer. I opened up trimmer, replaced cable and closed it up. Now it won't work. Do you have any troubleshooting tips for this??


Me too - I rewired the cable into the junction inside the unit and after reassembly it stopped working. I've narrowed it down to the internal switch(es). There's a black and a red alongside one another. When pressed together - no power. When only the red is pressed - power. But the orange, external handle press engages them both at the same time and I can't see how to avoid this after it's back together
Thanks, Matt

How to Sharpen a Black and Decker Hedge Hog sharpen-black-decker-hedge-hog-800x800.jpg 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: Moderately Easy Instructions Things You'll Need
  • Work table
  • 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
    • 1 Unplug the electric trimmer before trying to sharpen the teeth.
    • 2 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.
    • 3 Insert and secure grinding tip in hand-held multi-purpose tool.
    • 4 Maneuver the grinding tip so it is perpendicular to the facet of the Hedge Hog tooth.
    • 5 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 degrees.
    • 6 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.

I need a copy of the owners maual for Black n Decker. When I turn it on the blades do not move but the gears inside are moving. Therefore it screams. Thanks.


Do you use WD40 on the blades between sessions

If you have been cutting resinious branches there is more than a chance that the blades are seized together.

You could try putting the blades into a bucket of very hot soapy water (Without a power line attached or the battery removed )

Leave them to soak for a couple of hours, take them out of the water and give them a try, if they run then dry the blades off with a hair dryer and apply some oil to the surfaces.

If they donT then you have stripped the teeth on the gearbox and you may as well dump them as it will be cheaper to buy a new machine than it is to get B&D to repair it

Electic trimmer


You're going to take off like 20 screws including the ones that hold the handle and the hood at the base of the blade. You open it like a clamshell. There is a black plastic cover at the very bottom that covers the gear wheels (one tiny wheel that comes from the motor and a large wheel that actually moves both blades back and forth). The black plastic cover is no attached with screws. You just remove it so you can get to the gears. Now you oil and manipulate the large gear wheel until it comes loose and you can see the blades move back and forth. Put the whole thing back together and you are ready to go!
