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

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.

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.

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.
