Question about Black & Decker 14" Grass Hog Xp Trimmer/Edger

Open Question

Motor turns but shaft does not

The problem is the belt drive between the motor shaft and the drive shaft to the trimmer end has slipped and melted the plastic gear on the drive shaft end of the belt. This is a fatal problem and requires replacement of the drive system inside of the motor housing. Cost wise, probably means you totaled the unit.

SOURCE: Take apart method to replace rubber drive belt.

I had the same dillema, till I discovered a soft spot on the label. They put one last screw there. I got the housing open and discovered the belt was broken. Ordered a new belt ($12.39) through ACE Hardware repair center, now I can't get the belt on. That is why I came to this site.
The Ace guy told me he has had lot of calls for this particular belt. If you order one, I suggest you order two.
Good luck.

I'm in a similar situation with my GH1000, except that it was a part that comes with whole motor assembly. I could sell you the shaft assembly of my trimmer, or I'll buy your motor assembly. Yes?

Rigid table saw blade frozen


Well with only this info it could be a lot of or many failures to lock it down . First is it belt driven or direct shaft drive.if it is belt driven ,
(possible more not likely ) then unplug power supply .locate belt and follow to bearing journal and pulley on the blade end . pull from this end in the direction the teeth are facing(forward or fryont )
. Shouldn't take much effort.the idea is to roll any foreign object
clear , or free of smaller areas that would bind or jam any part of the drive train . While your there check belt
TIP: usually,almost any type of motor that has a belt for the drive train, has built in thermal overloads .. Like a fuse when it gets hot ,
the solder pot melts thus opening the circuit . They reset themselves In a time vs. Temperatures. Depending on the melt point of pot ( some in mins , some in hours ) . For yours it takes 15
mins or so to allow solder to cool and the link has made continuity thus closing the circuit. If belt slips around pully but motor shaft turns , something or some object has gotten between frame and drive ,or the bearings are seized up on the blade end . That's why we roll the belt at the blade end istead of turning shaft at motor end . The only other thing is if it's a direct shaft drive , you still will be looking for a jam piece , however possibly a locked rotor in side motor ,, meaning the out put (Armature ) shaft extending from motor to blade has seized up internally .Again check bearings if direct shaft .,,also more and more power tools are coming with a brake on them . As soon as the user has taken the power of
of tool the brake will engage and stop any rotating parts .

Stihl fs 55r head won't turn


Check drive shaft. Some models have a flexible cable drive shaft that is prone to breaking. also make sure the drive shaft is engaged in the clutch drum and in the gear head end.

The trimmer head stopped turning What could be wrong


here is web site for parts

http://www.partstree.com/parts/?lc=husqvarna&mn=225+L+%281994-06%29

almost sounds like the driving drum engagement end has rounded off or the end of drive shaft broke off at either end , or the gear head end is broken / damaged

have a look at the splines on the output shaft on the gear head , check the plate that engages those splines too

physicaly take off the tube / shaft assy from power head and check drum and clutch rotating , check drive shaft end (s)

if ok refit tube / shaft assy ( make sure engaged properly)
tighten mount bolts - remove gear head from end of shaft, start motor and run see if shaft turns ok with some rev s if so
problem is in the gear head

check out website good site


cheers paul hope it helps

Plastic shaft drive melted and belt snapped. can I get these parts?


No, they only sell the plastic pulley as part of the motor assembly, not separately. Currently $54.88, more than half the cost of a new trimmer. The belt says "call service center". I tossed mine and bought a cheaper model (NOT B&D!)

The motor want turn the attachments i.e. string on the trimmer or blade on the edger


there is definitely a problem in the drive shaft. check to make sure there's nothing blocking the mal and female ends. if there is, clean it out and lubricate it so that the male will attach to the female slot. also check to see that both ends are not stripped. if the motor portion of it is stripped, which most liekly is out culprit, then it needs to be replaced, or you need to get a new trimmer. if you do, i recommend the Ryobi model CS26 gas trimmer.if the atachment shaft is stripped, the the attachment needs replacement. if you replace the motor portion you need not lubricate the attatchment slot. if the attachment is stripped, it needs to be replaced, but im quite sure the female end in the motor shaft is our problem. it could also be broken inside the shaft. make sure nothing falls out if you hold the attatching ends to the ground.

Slipping belt onto motor shaft pulley


On most vacuums, you:
put the belt on the motor,

slip the beater bar thru the belt,

put the end opposite the belt into the frame,

stretch the belt and put the belt end of the beater bar into the frame.

Hope that helps!

Head will not drive. Can feel it slip between nut and motor.


inside the shaft is a flexible drive cord, at each end is usually a hex or torx head fitting that slides into a sleeve, theese can sometimes strip or even snap off and need replaced. remove one end of the shaft (either the engine or the spool) and the cord should slide right out easily. inspect each end for stripping and to make sure it didn't snap off inside the sleeves.

Vacuum smell


Your belt is slipping, it is probably stretched and slips trying to drive the brush roll. Take the bottom plate off, check the brush also, make sure the ends turn freely. The belt runs from the brush roll to the motor shaft. If you can't get to the motor shaft, then you will have to remove the top cover.
