Its a fault with these machines. The blade is fixed on a plastic mounting (the black hemisphere you can see on top of the blade) and this seems to wear quite quickly. So the blade is not fixed to the shaft! To fix - you have to access the end of the motor shaft. To do this, pull the base out as far as it goes(15-20mm) insert a flat screwdriver into the barbed flaps on the central plastic shaft and push gently to release (not the easiest of jobs!) once released you should see the end of the motor shaft with a flat slot. Now, you can unscrew the capping nut holding the blade. I replaced the blade assembly with the following: First, 15mm OD washer with 4mm hole onto shaft. This should sit on the shaft at the bottom of the thread. Then the blade. You'll need a washer that sits into the hole in the blade to center it on the shaft. This washer needs to be slightly thinner that or the same thickness as the blade. Thesn another 15mm washer over this followed by a lock nut or cap nut to secure. This worked perfectly for me.

B&D Hedge Trimmer (HT33) was working yesterday but not today. Motor sounds fine & the blades move back & forth ... just not cutting any foliage ... any ideas?


Mechanical issue. Make sure that the screw that holds the moving blades up against the non moving blade is adjusted properly. If loose, the blades will not be close together during the cutting stroke and no cutting will ensue.

Wipers not working


If you hear the wiper motor running but the blades do not move then the linkage grommet that connects the two wiper arms to the motor needs to be replaced. If you don't hear the motor running it could be a loose connection, a bad switch, a blown fuse, a burned or shorted wire, or a bad motor. Only an electrical multimeter and patience will sort out an electrical issue.

Wiper blade slipped loose in heavy rain.


Unplug the electrical connector at the wiper motor. Use a voltmeter to check for power and ground on the Pink and dark green wires. This setup has two relays: hi speed and low speed. If you're not getting power and ground with IGN switch on RUN and wipers turned on, then yank the relays and check for ground to the relay control coils provided by the body control module. The wiper switch acts as a signal to the BCM to provide ground to the relays. The switch doesn't actually switch power to the relays.

Homelite hedge trimmer , motor runs but blades do


Had the same problem: when I turn on the trimmer, the motor would hum but the blades won't move.
What I did:
1. Sprayed a ton of wd40 between the blades
2. Took a screwdriver and kinda wedged it between the blades to get them unstuck. Also removed some guck between the blades.
And it worked!

Windshield wiper do not work but motor runs


If the motor works and the blades are not moving you have a stripped gear or the connecting arm has come loose. I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual for your vehicle to have Diagrams and photos available for reference during the repair.

Motor starts and revs but blades do not move. Have checked for corrosion and opened cover plate to check cogs and linkage. also made sure blades move if I manually move them.


Check the pully coming of the crank shaft and see if the key may be broken in there. Or check the tension on the blade belts, if too loose then the belt will be slipping in the pully.
Good luck

Motor runs, but blades dont move


with engine off, take a screw driver and manually move the blades to make sure that they are not jammed. Then spray the blades down with wd-40 oil and they should move freely again.

Cant get blade off


I don't know which model you're using, but normally there's an arbor lock button on the motor side of the blade somewhere that allows you to lock that whole middle housing down so it won't turn. Look underneath the motor and see if you can't find some kind of lock botton or lever. That will make it easy to loosen the nut and tighten the blade down correctly.
Otherwise you're going to have to improvise some way to lock it in place enough to break that nut loose.
Reply with a model # and I can try to find a parts schematic to check for you...
