Question about Black & Decker Black and Decker & Grass Hog Electric Trimmer

Open Question

GH1000 - I push the button and the motor runs but the trimmer head does not turn. Happened all of a sudden while I was using it. Didn't hit anything, didn't run into anything, just suddenly stopped turning.

SOURCE: Black & Decker gh1000 trimmer head not spinning

The same thing happened to me. You either have a ruined belt pulley, or, hopefully, the belt burned out. Belts are easy to find online, but the housing is tricky to remove - see other posts.

I finally got it the plastic housing apart on my trimmer (there is one screw hidden under the label), only to find a total meltdown. The plastic pulley is ruined, and the only way to get it replaced is to buy a new motor (the most expensive part).

If your trimmer is no longer under warranty, then you can get a refurbished gh1000 for the price a new motor unit.

I was using my B&D GH1000 Trimmer/Edger, date code LZ2008 51-58-21, on very light grass when the motor disengaged from the trim head. Motor runs fine but head is not being driven in either trimmer or...


hi there, there is no shear pin but the head is driven by a long cable with square ends, either the cable is broken or it had become disconected at one end. i would suggest looking at the head assembly end. remove the head assembly, start the engine and see if the cable rotates. if it doesn't the problem lies in the cable or at the engine end. unless you are technically minded i would suggest taking it to a repair centre, if you are technically minded let i have included a blown up diagram of the model which will give you an idea how it is assembled.
cheers

Black&decker GH 1000 trimmer. The line breaks when spool is full


Try using a thicker line when using the thinner line it is good only for grass if you should hit fence or concrete it will eat it up and you will be pulling it out every 5 minites or less.

GH1000 Motor runs but spool just quit working.this is electric.


Same thing happened to me. The belt broke. You'll need to take off all the screws to change the belt. There's a hidden screw under the black label. Feel around for the soft spot.

I agree with you there. I have read a few dozen complaints about the same problem, and none have been answered to my knowledge. I have not been able to find the parts to self repair either.

GH1000 string trimmer


This is for the Black and Decker GH1000 string trimmer. There are 20 screws to remove altogether. The last screw is under the black label with instructions on using the button to extend the shaft. The screw hole is just above the white line on the label-you have to poke a hole in the label! Very tricky!
