I disassembled the blower housing (orange). The switch is a momentary closed 2 position rocker (DPST?). Anyway, I sprayed electrical contact cleaner inside the switch as well as electrical lubricant. I also sprayed silicone on the convoluted switch linkage. That took care of the problem.

    Had the same problem and found what i assume is a thermal breaker was open and jumped it,but now I can't re-assemble it so the linkage pushes the switch. Anyone have a photo of how the switch and linkage should go? The parts exploded views are no help except to show that I have all the listed parts, but the rocker that is rotated by the slider is too far from the switch to push it.

    OK, after spending most of the day trying to figure out if I had lost a part that was also not in the parts list, I discovered the missing part was the blower base which has two prongs that push the rocker toward the switch when you put it on.

    I'm having the same problem. I got it apart, installed a fuse holder and a fuse to replace the one that had blown, but now I can't get that Rube Goldberg switch assembly back together again.

    does anyone have reassembly instructions or a photo?

BV4000 stopped working


Check finger switch is good. From the female cord contact to the switch is not letting current. Could be almost anything from a circuit diode, circuit board, u name it!

Windshield Wiper Only Works On High


There is a wiper speed control module or governor behind the instrument cluster. You can check with the dealer on price and what it looks like. It controls everything but high speed.
You should be able to do a circuit test on it to see if it is working. The low speed side of the motor may be bad too.

BV4000 is electrically sparking in the upper part of the motor when running, looks like in/near the windings. Motor has slowed too. Seems hot.


The motor/armature is burnt. It will eventually fail completely. Many times too small a supply cord and too long footage length will overheat the motor. Anything over 25' should have a 12 guage power cord.

My BD, DV4000 has lost power and the motor appears


I have this unit. Mine stopped working today after being warm on the handle the last few uses. I opened the unit up (torx 15) and smelled, then found that a fused wire coming off the motor had burned/melted/separated at a plastic plug right inside the handle. I'm not sure if it had anything to do with it, but in this same compartment of the handle there was an anti-theft strip floating around. I called BandD and they said the BV4000 type ONE has been recalled. http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07005.html

There are only a few parts to check on this unit. After you have done that,
throw it away and buy you another unit. The cost of parts and labor exceed having the unit fixed.

Black and Decker leaf hog, worked fine last use.


I posted this solution on another similar thread, but it may pertain here.
