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

Open Question

My Black and Decker Grass Hog Trimmer has performed well. I have had it for 3-4 yrs. The last time I tried to use it, actuating the trigger nothing happens. Battery indicating charged by the Green indicator light, I have 13.65 volt D/C accross the battery contacts, The safety trigger is actuation correctly. It is just like no voltage is getting to the motor? I have rotated the head many times with no response. Just dead? Do you have any suggestions?

SOURCE: CST1000 Black & Decker Cordless Trimmer/Edge won't start

http://www.toolpartsdirect.com/cgi-bin/schematic.cgi/blackdecker/CST2000_TYPE_1

Part number #243614-00.
It's a microswitch made by Honeywell that costs about 5 bucks plus shipping.
The attached file has the schematic and parts list.
The CST2000 is well worth spending a few bucks to keep it going. Finding a local B&D authorized service center near you will even save you the shipping as they can order it for you.
Every other component is pretty dependable- the motor, battery, wiring, charging system, spool system- all built to last.
Only down side is you really only get 20 to 25 minutes of hard weedwhacking before you need to recharge. Of course, it's time for a cold beer in the pool by then.

It sounds like that the automatic line release is damaged.

1. Remove and clean all debris from the head. I assume that you have already done this if you have changed the line a few times, but just make sure.

2. Remove the the head from the shaft.

3. There should be a large spring in there. If its broken, damaged or missing that will allow the head to spool line pretty fast. again make sure all debris is removed from this area.

4. Check the feed dogs in the same area as the spring. If they are worn the same problem will occur.

5. Install line on the spool.Make sure that it is wound the proper direction. There should be arrows indicating this. The line wound in reverse will also cause the same problem as well.

6. Put it all back together and see if works now.

7. If this doesn't solve it you may need to replace the head assembly.

Good luck!

I have bleck and decker grass hog auto feed and it does not work


There is a smalll white part below the spool called a "lever". This is likely in need of replacement. Call Black and Decker at 800-544-6986 with your Model No, and Date Code (stamped on the trimmer itself near where the extension cord plugs in). If it is still under warranty they will send you the replacement part - if not, I loooked it up and it's less than $3 for the part itself.
