Question about Black & Decker Garden
The motor is running, but the head won't spin. This seemed to happen gradually; the head just slowed down & eventually stopped completely. The motor is running normally as far as I can tell.
The same thing happened to me. You either have a ruined belt pulley, or, hopefully, the belt burned out. Belts are easy to find online, but the housing is tricky to remove - see other posts.
I finally got it the plastic housing apart on my trimmer (there is one screw hidden under the label), only to find a total meltdown. The plastic pulley is ruined, and the only way to get it replaced is to buy a new motor (the most expensive part).
If your trimmer is no longer under warranty, then you can get a refurbished gh1000 for the price a new motor unit.
