There is a cable that runs down the shaft and some times when grass gets built up on the head it will overheat and melt the plastic piece that runs the blades. you will have to get a new shaft

I have a petrol hedge trimmer TRY26PHTA. The engine will start fine but the blades will not move


If the engine starts 'fine" then it has not seized.

Many, if not most, hedge trimmers are , for safety, equipped with a "CENTRIFUGAL CLUTCH" between the engine and the blade to prevent blade operation unless the engine is at full RPM.

IF your machine is so equipped, it's possible that the clutch is worn and slipping so badly that the blade can't move.

Engine runs great, accelerator responds perfectly, but the blades stopped moving. Any ideas?


Ensure blades are sharpened. If there are burs on blades they can seize.
Blades should be lubricated with WD40 , waste oil or other lubricant.
The bolts holding the two blades together shouldn't be too tight.

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!

Hedge trimmer won't start. No jam or bend in blade. Battery is re-charged. Just won't start! Reset button isn't doing a thing!


Take the battery off. Now see if you can move the blade. Sometimes the blade can get to a point where it acts as though it will not run. If the blade has moved, reinstall the battery and see if it goes. I had you remove the battery for safety...Lee

Thihl HL75 hedge trimmer engine will not run at full speed


Remove the cutting attachment, insert a screwdriver in to the shaft receptor and it should operate smooth with a slight bit of friction. if not then check the blade bolts and make sure the blades move freely. Lubricate the blades and the gearbox regularly. If the attachment end is good then turn the driveshaft by hand (with attachment still off shaft). If this too moves freely then go to the clutch.
