Question about Black & Decker Leaf Hog 12-AMP Electric Blower/Vacuum #BV4000

Open Question

B&D Leaf Hog Electric will only start if sitting on flat surface

It may continue running when picked up, but might not. It appears to be related to some secret catch or electrical connection that I cannot locate.

    I have the manual and it doesn't mention anything about this issue. The how to regards how to change out the vacuum and blower attachments, which I already know how to do using the manual. It doesn't deal with the problem I am having, at least not directly.

    Thanks for the effort, but no banana.

SOURCE: when plugged in-the B/D leaf hog won't work.

Well Jim the unit may have a motor burned out or a switch has gone bad. We leave in a disposable society. Your blower is one that is not worth taking to a shop to be repaired because the cost of repairs would exceed the cost of a new unit. So you may have to bite the bullet and go out and purchase a new one.
Good Day.

SOURCE: My motor brushes at end

Try Platt Electrical supply - 800-257-5288 (Platt.com) BLACK & DECKER #89754-01 REPLACEMENT BRUSH. It seems the entire motor head was manufactured by DeWalt and is now obsolete. I don't know if these brushes will fit, but someone there may help.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: My Black & Decker Leafblower Leaf Hog BV4000 type 2 quit running suddenly while using. It had run about an hour, was not warm to the touch and is 2 years old. Is thuis a common problem and what might

I have this unit. Mine stopped working today after being warm on the handle the last few uses. I opened the unit up (torx 15) and smelled, then found that a fused wire coming off the motor had burned/melted/separated at a plastic plug right inside the handle. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with it, but in this same compartment of the handle there was an anti-theft strip floating around. I called BandD and they said the BV4000 type ONE has been recalled. http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07005.html
But not the type 2. Even though the failure described for the type 1 is exactly what I found in the type 2.

Where do i switch theLEAF HOG FROM VACUUM TO BLOWER


Remove vaccuum tube. Allow the access door for the vacuum tube to shut all the way. Attatch the blower tube where you had the collection back for the vaccuum attatched. That is it.

Will start but wont run.runs only a second


It is possible that the ON/OFF switch is bad or the wires that connect to the switch are loose and are not making permanent contact. Check the switch.

Zipper is really stuck


sometimes dirt and debree can get stuck in there, try saturating it with a strong penetrating oil like PB Blaster, available at your local auto parts store, and let it soak in for about an hour and use a pair of pliers to get a good grip.

Leaf Hog trouble


The carbon brushes wear out after a few years .B&D does not carry replacements . I took out one of the old brushes and found an exact replacement at an electronics parts surplus store . The replacement didn't have the little endcap on it so I used the ones from the old brushes and pigtailed the connector wire .
Its been working fine since !
