Edger blade will not turn

Electric Edger motor runs while squeezing the trigger, but the blade will not turn consistently, or rarely. I see it trying to turn, but it isn't constant. Any ideas? Can it be repaired?

    The shaft turns intermittently, with no consistency. I can hear something inside spinning, it's just not turning the shaft. Assuming Mr. Fixit is right again, where would I find the small drive gear?

    Can you tell if the shaft that the blade is on is turning.

Take a pair of vise grips and clamp the blade to a 2X4 for more leverage. Some old edgers had a left hand thread.

If it is seizing up it is probably not worth fixing,but there is a chance that you just need to change the brushes.You can usually pull these out pretty easially,and have a look at them.If they are all eaten away try replacing them.Again though if it is actually locking the shaft,and pulling the brushes out does not free it up you may have to just toss it.

Have you made sure the drive shaft cable is tuning and is properly installed and that there is no debris or dirt stopping the blade from turning?

SOURCE: Gas Edger Blade

you can try to drive something between the blade and the washer (like screwdriver) to create more friction or try holding the washer with channel locks might have left hand threads and you are actually trying to tighten. if that doesnt work probably need an impact wrench. Go to a auto repair or tire shop with mechanic and give them a few dollars for luch or dinner and let them try with air tools

If it's electric, you probably cut the wire internally by kinking it or stretching the iwre beyond it'd capability.

I bought a homelite curb runner and need to replace the blade. The problem is I cannot find the blades anywhere. Any ideas?


I found that your electric edger blade is rounded on the ends. I did not find a part number for it. I also found a site that has about 30 or more Homelite edger blades listed, but again, with half of them without pictures, I can't give you the edger blade part number. But, if you have removed the blade and can measure all the dimensions of the blade, then you can match it up with one from this site.They have more blades than other sites I checked. It should not be too hard as each blade listed has the critical dimensions listed with it. I wish you good luck.

Problem with my B&D LE500 lawn edger. Will run good then quits. pressing trigger several times edger starts. may keep running or quit. are there points or something electrial that could be problem?


Check the switch, it could burnout. The trigger switch made on this model are very cheap and can not supply current to motor for a long time without burning out. So it could be that switch has melted, and plastic is covering parts of the terminal.

120' cord. I would go to a big-box store and investigate making your own cord so that you only have 2 ends. 12 guage at the very least. any thing smaller, and you will burn up the motor.

I believe that the trigger and throttle cable should solve your issue.

I bought a Sears edger #536 796526. It dies on me.


Hi Tom. You are not doing anything wrong. That being said, your edger has a slightly gummed up carbeurator. I would go to an auto parts store and get a can of a product called seafoam. this is a gasoline additive. Add one ounce per gallon of gas and use this as the fuel for your edger. You will solve your problem in just a few minutes after using this product, I believe. Give it a try and let me know.
