Have a echo 150 gas hedge trimmer motor runs blades don't move what could cause that


Inside the bottom panel, is where the grease etc is... you can take the cover off to make sure it's greased up inside, if it's running and the blades aren't moving when you throttle it, then they can be siezed , or the gear under the panel is off line or broke.

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.

Stihl HS45 hedge trimmer runs fine, blades move well, does not appear to cut hedge - what could be the problem ?


Dull blades! Lol, or they're not meeting eachother on each reciprocating stroke so there is no shearing action, much like a pair of scissors. Check to see if the blade bolts are too loose or is the blades are warped or if the cutting edges are simply too dull

You should be able to sharpen your hedge trimmer blades. There is a good video on how to sharpen hedge trimmer blades on youtube by ereplacementparts. He explains how to do it with a file or a grinder.

My hedge trimmer blades do not move when I turn it on


Check the power wires that connect to the motor. My 18 inch B&D hedge trimmers both had loose wires at the motor that had to be re-soldered. You will need to open the trimmer casing to get to the loose wires, if that is the problem.

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 blade not moving


I have a Troy-Bilt gas powered hedge trimmer. My blades would not move. After tearing it apart, I found that there were some spacers under the 5 or 6 screws along the blades. These spacers are steel and designed so that you don't overtighten the screws. However, around those steel spacers, there is a teflon type material that makes the oval shape of the slot. That teflon had fallen apart and lodged so that the blades would not move. I removed the teflon and put the spacers back in and it now works fine. There is a little play between the spacer and the edge of the slot and it will probably eventually wear out but at least I got a few more cuttings off of it.

Electric Hedge trimmer will not cut


more than likely it damaged the inner gears or drive pins that make the blades reciprocate and need replaced. if you would like instructions to repair it yourself i will send you them or you can take it to a service center.
