Question about Forfex FX 766 Hair Trimmer

Forfex trimmer FX766 won't charge

I am not sure why my trimmer won't charge. One day it  was fine and I do keep it plugged in all of the time because I use it frequently, yet now the light is on as if charging yet the unit is dead. I know the blades are good and well cleaned. Does the unit need a new battery ? I can't figure out how to open this. Also, could it be the charger? I cleaned the connection points to make sure the charge was getting connected and changed wall outlets. Any ideas or who I can have repair this in So. Cal. ? I hate to have to buy another. Thanks, angelhair

    SorryJulie, it was new at that time & the batteries are not replaceable. Thanks anyhow. It is a problem they had with the way they made the contacts, They have since changed them on this model.

Angehair,
It is most likely the battery, don't even try to open the case if you don't know what you are doing, Forfex will not replace the batteries in these small trimmers as they state it is too labor intensive, I am working on obtaining batteries for these units.
They have to be soldered in.

If there is just no charge after you plug in for awhile, my guess is you need to get a new battery for it

Battery won t hold charge


If your battery does not hold charge, and you don't want to buy a replacement, then there is not much can do other than to keep using your laptop with the charger. All batteries have a time life span.

Have a new craftsman edger, 27cc 2 cycle. Have used one time. Worked fine. Now trying to use again and won't keep going when cranked.


If it worked the first time you used it, what changed since then? It sounds like you have old, dirty or water in the fuel. Is this possible? I need a few more details on how it acts to help you.

My worx will not stay charged... the charger goes green after about 10 minutes and only runs for about 5 minutes...


it sounds like the battery has seen better days. a battery will get a "memory" and after while it could fully charged as far as the charger know but only hold a little charge. with the advices in batteries they shouldn't do this but they all do wear out of time. I would get a new battery, and everything should be just fine. With the any new rechargeable battery you want to make sure that you charge it completely and drain it the whole way before recharging.
Best of luck

How long should trimmer run on a charge.


How large is your yard? On a small yard (like a townhouse front & back yard) the trimmer should last long enough to do the yard a couple of times before needing to be recharged, but it depends on the individual yard, how many weeds you have, and whether you keep it running a long time.

If the trimmer charges at all but not for a very long time, it's either the charger or the battery. Check the charger when it's charging to make sure the red light stays on -- if it goes off or blinks, you need a new charger. If the charger light stays on but the battery doesn't hold a charge, you need a new battery.

Hope that helps!

Problem choosing the correct string for my weedeater


When you go to purchase the line and are not sure what diameter to use buy the smaller size. It will work fine,but may need to be replaced more frequently. Most importantly you'll reduce the risk of damaging the trimmer.

Won't start


drain fuel tank. keep depressing the primer bulb until it is clear. drain tank again. remove carb cover and disconnect lines one at a time. keep depressing primer bulb to get rid of excess gas. remove spark plug an turn engine in a position that the spark plug inlet is facing the floor, pull starter rope a few times to get rid of gas in the engine chamber.
