I have a petrol hedge trimmer TRY26PHTA. The engine will start fine but the blades will not move


If the engine starts 'fine" then it has not seized.

Many, if not most, hedge trimmers are , for safety, equipped with a "CENTRIFUGAL CLUTCH" between the engine and the blade to prevent blade operation unless the engine is at full RPM.

IF your machine is so equipped, it's possible that the clutch is worn and slipping so badly that the blade can't move.

The trimmer on my Braun 1775 FreeControl shaver has stopped working. When it is engaged, the pitch (sound) of the shaver changes in the usual way with the usual increase in vibration. However the trimmer...


The trimmer is either broken or clogged up with a combination of shavings and skin oil. If it is broken, there are no replacements available. If it is clogged, you can fix it by thoroughly cleaning it. Dip the blades of the trimmer into some rubbing alcohol or other mild solvent type liquid. Soak it for about one minute. Then take an old toothbrush and firmly scrub the teeth. Then turn it on and it should free it up. If it still doesn't move you can advance the blade manually to get it 'unstuck'. One of the blades is fix and the other moves back and forth. You should be able to see which one is supposed to move by sight. Take a small flat screwdriver or similar object and push the blade to each side once. Turn it on and it should move freely. Dip the trimmer blades back in the rubbing alcohol while it is running and let it run for about 15 seconds.
If still not working it is beyond repair. The easiest and least expensive way to get working again would be to purchase a new ;lower unit' which includes the trimmer. You will find at shaveroutlet.com. See link below

FS85 Gas hedge trimmer started first time this season but cutting blades will not move. Unit new last year only about 10 hours on it. Why no blade movement on new unit?


soak blades in gas for a while then soak in oil and then try to force the blades to move a little and then try to start again, You will have to break away the rust and stuff that's holding them together, that's where the gas comes in and the oil next for lubrication.

Having a problem starting my Shindaiwa T22 Weed Eater.


take the spark plug out and pull the engine over with the spark plug in the wire and ground the plug to the trimmer and see if it sparks. if not flip the switch the other way and see if it sparks then you shall know.

Sideburn trimmer does not cut anymore but still makes noise. trimmer blade does not move.


It is pretty common for the trimmer to get jammed up with hair particles and skin oils which can prevent the blade from moving.

Try running the blades of the trimmer in a shallow dish of rubbing alcohol. Then clean the blades vigorously with an old toothbrush or similar. If the blades still does not move try using the tip of a small flat screwdriver or similar object to push and advance the moveable blade. Repeat running in alcohol and brush clean

If this doesnt work, you will probably need a new trimmer

Trimmer malfunction


Hi,

I had same problem, at first I could not find out how to seperate the small silver cover with the on/off switch from the rest. After removing the 3 torx screws, 1 at the power entrance, and 2 under the shaver blade. You can remove the black cover. I also removed 2 more torx screws to separate the battery, from the rest, (don't know if thats really necessary). The silver covers are 'clicked' into eachother. When lifted the part where the battery part was screwed into, the silver parts became partly seperated, then you can pull the part apart.
I cleaned/washed the trimmer part with wd40 contact spray.
Assembled the parts, and made sure that the little plastic nodge was came into the trimmer.
Cleaned it all (removed leaking wd 40) and works fine again.
Hopefully this is helpfull to anyone.

Goodluck,
Adrian
