Question about Black & Decker Garden

The electric motor on my B&D LeafHog leaf blower is generating more sparks than it should. Are the brushes bad? Runs OK with power but shooting sparks? Can I fix it or will I have to replace?

My experience with B&D products is that the unit can be repaired, but by the time you buy the part and pay shipping, even doing the work yourself, you may have close to the replacement value. You can get parts from blackanddeck.com

Problem is my hardly used Toro Blower Vac is getting no Power


If it has not run for awhile, check the brushes. they might need to be replaced. The plug is usually moulded right on power cord. That might have to be replaced because if there is a problem with a broken or disconnected wire right at plug there is no way to see it. Hope this helps.
