There are 4 wires, - black and white, red and blue

..and there are 4 connections - 2 on each side of the motor.

Does anybody have advice on how the wires should be connected?

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.

My Black & Decker trimmer starts and stops whenever I move the trimmer in any direction -- any advise as to how to solve this problem?


I'm not familiar with your machine, BUT... that description of symptom sounds suspiciously like a bad/poor electrical connection.

The problem could be in many places:
  • plug
  • cord
  • switch
  • brushes
  • internal electrical wiring
The "solution" to this problem is for someone who knows what s/he is doing, to troubleshoot the defective machine, determine the defect, and properly repair or replace the defective part.

I have a black and decker ht2200 hedge trimmer. The white wire came lose, but I can't figure out were it goes so I can re-solder it. Can anyone please help?


Hopefully if the black wire is still fastened, you can see where it goes. The soldered white wire is just pressed fit in the contact on the other side of the motor in the same place as the black. You should see a very small round hole in the top of a contact. The white wire goes there and then the wire snaps into the wire guide along the inside of the housing.

I do not know of a reset. Most likely you damaged the wire and have to repair that section, or replace the wire.

If really helpful, please rate.

My hedge trimmer blades do not move when I turn it on


Check the power wires that connect to the motor. My 18 inch B&D hedge trimmers both had loose wires at the motor that had to be re-soldered. You will need to open the trimmer casing to get to the loose wires, if that is the problem.

Black & Decker Hedge Hog 24-Inch Hedge Trimmer. Motor runs, but blades don't move. Is there a sheer pin that I can replace, or is the thing bound for the dump?


You can definitely pick up a sheer pin for that model. I know ereplacementparts.com has them usually pretty discounted, or just check out a local store, but make sure they are in stock.

Black and decker hedge trimmer GT 249 I have cut through the cable and wondered where i could get it repaired. I live near Selby / Leeds


cut the bad part out,then strip the outer insulation off carefully as not to knick the inner insulation,then strip off all wire ends appx 3/4" to 1" and twist the black wire to the other black wire and tape securely so no bare wires are showing,then do the same with the white/white wires and then green/green ground wires and finally tape the whole thing to keep out moisture with electrical tape from most hardware/d.i.y. stores

How to Sharpen a Black and Decker Hedge Hog sharpen-black-decker-hedge-hog-800x800.jpg Maintaining the sharpness of electric timmers can made landscape trimming easier with beautiful results. Electric hedge trimmers make trimming hedges and bushes easier and quicker than using manual hand-powered trimmers. Electric trimmers, the most popular type in the U.S., cost less and require less maintenance than gasoline-powered models. Electric trimmers are used most often by homeowners with the Black and Decker Hedge Hog series being very popular. While they are not premium products, electric trimmers like the Black and Decker Hedge Hog trimmer can keep trimming reliably for years with proper maintenance, including sharpening the blade's teeth.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions Things You'll Need
  • Work table
  • Two medium size clamps
  • Dremel tool or similar hand-held multi-purpose tool
  • Grinding wheel attachment for hand-held tool.
  • Dremel 971 (or similar) aluminum oxide grinding sharpening stone with a tip small enough to cover the flat facet of a Hedge Hog blade tooth
    • 1 Unplug the electric trimmer before trying to sharpen the teeth.
    • 2 Clamp the electric trimmer to the work table using two clamps if necessary so the Hedge Hog is firmly held down with the blade teeth accessible over the edge of the work table.
    • 3 Insert and secure grinding tip in hand-held multi-purpose tool.
    • 4 Maneuver the grinding tip so it is perpendicular to the facet of the Hedge Hog tooth.
    • 5 Sharpen teeth in one direction, being careful to try and maintain the same cutting edge angle on the sharpened tooth of no less than 35 degrees.
    • 6 Make same number of grinding passes/grind the same length of time a few seconds on each tooth.
Tips & Warnings
  • This task should take about 15 minutes.
  • Keep a light touch; too much force can break the grinding surface.
  • For best results, insert the sharpening bit slightly less than all the way into the tool.
