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 have a RYOBI pole saw that starts fine, but there is a disconnect between engine and saw blade. The blade will not turn.


I assume you have the Ryobi powerhead with the multiple tool shaft (can use it with an edger, blower, trimmer, and pole saw) If so, does the powerhead square drive spin when you squeeze the throttle trigger? Does the chain move freely on the saw end when not connected? Is the attachment fully inserted into the powerhead shaft (small spring-loaded button should pop out of the hole when fully inserted.

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.

With the water faucet turned fully on and the power switch on squeeze and hold the trigger for at least 10 seconds to let the water flow push the air out and then it should start up.

Weedeater gas TE400. Trigger broke (perhaps


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.

Gas engine will not start without pulling trigger on wand to relieve pressure-engine dies when letting off trigger


I am afraid that is how they work even electric ones wont start unless you squeeze the trigger ,once they are running you should be ablr to release the trigger , and then squeeze it again whilst running . if yours dies when you release the trgger while motor is running -----good chance you are working at too high pressure. but to start you have to release all the internal pressure

The motor want turn the attachments i.e. string on the trimmer or blade on the edger


there is definitely a problem in the drive shaft. check to make sure there's nothing blocking the mal and female ends. if there is, clean it out and lubricate it so that the male will attach to the female slot. also check to see that both ends are not stripped. if the motor portion of it is stripped, which most liekly is out culprit, then it needs to be replaced, or you need to get a new trimmer. if you do, i recommend the Ryobi model CS26 gas trimmer.if the atachment shaft is stripped, the the attachment needs replacement. if you replace the motor portion you need not lubricate the attatchment slot. if the attachment is stripped, it needs to be replaced, but im quite sure the female end in the motor shaft is our problem. it could also be broken inside the shaft. make sure nothing falls out if you hold the attatching ends to the ground.
