    Hello Taper,



    I have a trimmer purchased last year. It's the Grass Hog 14" Black & Decker Electric Trimmer. I hope this answers your question.

    I was told the cable is broken and needs replacing.

    Thanks for your time

    How old is your trimmer? Gas or electric?

The motor is working but the trimmer part stopped spinning. I checked the line but there is plenty, I removed and replaced the line spool but still not working.


Does the trimmer head spin freely? If so then it is somehow disconnected from the motor. There should be a motor coupler somewhere near the motor and also near the trimming head. Make sure they are connected.

I just bought a BD Grass Hog and after 1 h of use,


If the noise was up by the handle it may have been the drive pulley breaking loose of the shaft on the motor causing the motor to spin and stop the flex shaft of the trimmer. Another possibility would be the small belt that aids the flex shaft. If those don't fix the problem check the lock nut that bolts the flex shaft to the spool housing. If the shaft broke free from the housing the motor would still run and the shaft would turn, but the spool housing would not spin if it does it could be stopped very easily. Definately check the warranty.

The cutter won't rotate --- engine runs, but no spin.


Plastic gear inside is likely stripped or broken. But...there may be grass or line bound between moving head and none moving part. That will cause the unit to not turn as well. It there is sound, then these two are likely. If no sound, then there is typically a one time thermo link that has tripped. This is the case with the GH500. $2 fixes that.
