Craftsman 22 in. Electric Hedge Trimmer- blade stopped moving

After several uses, the blades on my Hedge Trimmer stopped moving. It is plugged in and I can hear the motor turn on, the blade just doesn't engage.

Please tell me if there is something I can do!!

Thanks

Blades wont move when power connected. Stripped it down. Motor is fine. I think it must be the gears attached to the blade unit


Either the gears, OR SOME machines have a "CENTRIFUGAL CLUTCH" [a safety feature] between the engine and the blades.

IF your machine has this feature, then it's possible that the clutch has worn out and is slipping so badly that the blade won't move.

Do I need toil this Remington 22in electric hedge trimmer?


It's always a good idea to oil the blade of a hedge trimmer with WD40 or similar otherwise the sap from branches will eventually build up a coating on the blades and increase friction.

I have a 22inch Craftsman Hedge Trimmer, Model No. 315.81591. When trimming a hedge near a chain-link fence, one of the steel links from the fence got caught between the blade guard and the cutter blade. ...


The likely issue is the gear pin has been sheared. The part is no longer available from Craftsman. (P/N from sears: 616255-001)

I had a similar issue with a similar electric trimmer. I removed the old pin and used a split pin and ground it down to the proper size. It's now worked for about 2 years just fine. This requires complete dis-assembly.

Sharpen hedge trimmer blade??


My trick is to make sure that I always lube the blades after each session with a 3/4 engine oil + 1/4 kerosene mix - making sure that every tooth gets a drops or 2, then run it for a seconds to spread the oil & leave the blades overlapping. Doing this allows the blades to self sharpen I've found. 2 stroke oil , unmixed is about the perfect viscosity aswell.

Describe your Black & Decker Hedge Hog


You may have a piece of metal between the moving blade and the stationary one. Also the motor may have been at the top of the stroke when it stopped. You may be able to "force" the blade to move a little. This may free it enough to work.

Cam does not engage blade


I had this problem with mine. I ended up disassembling the two halves of the trimmer, then reseating the cam. The cam was jammed when I caught the blades on a chain link fence. Good luck and patience.
