I have an electric Bosch hedge trimmer, new ish. Just caught it on some metal, now it is making a high pitched noise and starts to smoke if I continue to use it. Have I wrecked it?

Sounds like a bearing is stuck and overheating when you use it. If you can get to the bearings, spray some lube in them like PB Blaster, and see if that helps. It's also possible that the blades are binding and causing the motor to overwork and the brushes are cooking. One or the other.

My Bosch AHS 45 16 electric hedge trimmer start, is there anything you can suggest?

Hi Dan Walsh, When an electric motor won't start, it could be an open temperature device in the winding of the motor itself. If you have brushes and they are worn, then one or maybe two of the brushes can't stay inside the brush holder. They are spring loaded and if worn out can pop out. Also, if the winding are open, then there is not continuity. This will cause the condition you described. Not the best news, but it might answer your question.
Good Luck!

I Have a Black&Decker 2200 hedge trimmer. This year when I plugged it in the blades opearted slowly and after a while came close to stopping. How can I fix it.

Thank you for posting your question here on

You can try a new set of brushes but bear in mind that most of those items do not cost very much new and the likelihood there is damage to the motor from the brushes failing is high. You are usually better off replacing items such as this.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

Same problem. New last fall, quit after 30 min.

The brushes for the trimmer is no longer available, so unless you can find someone who has old stock of the part, your going to have to replace this one.
