Yes you should be able to repair it. Is it a flex or shaft drive? If it'a a shaft, it is the coupler at the motor. If it is a flexible drive the cable may be broken. B&D is is seldom worth repairing. The majority of lawnmower shops won't repair them because of cost.You can try, but you need the owners paperwork to order the right parts. Good luck and at the least, tear it down and see what failed. Start at the string end.. Good luck and make sure it's not plugged in. - Ned -

Trimmer line is spinning but slowly, like it has lost power.


Sounds like just what you said "it's lost power" Are you sure the battery is fully charged? Try another battery if you have one. There is no clutch to slip on this type trimmer. It's got to be either the battery is not putting out enough to turn the motor or the motor itself is bad.

Why does my gh 1000 endlessly spit out line??


You need to make sure the line is on fairly tight and that the bump and go system is not engaged as this will spill the line out. It also need to be wound on anti clockwise.

I have a Talon electric line trimmer AT2307A. When I press the start button, the bottom attachment with the nylon line does not spin even though the motor is running.


Halfway down the shaft of the line trimmer, you can detach the line trimmer attachment ( this in so you can fit a lawn edger attachment if need be). Unclip the line trimmer at that halfway point and the start the motor and see if that rod inside the shaft is spining, if so, reattach the line trimmer attachment and see if the nylon line spins, if so, it wasnt attached correctly, if not, then there a break in the flexible rod going to the trimmer head, most likely at the bend.

Blades not moving on ss24 weedeater


I just disassembled a SS24 hedge trimmer that had the same problem of the blades not moving. The problem is that there are 2 or 3 teeth on the helical gear that are missing. Consequently, the small gear on the motor shaft cannot continuously engage the gear that moves the blades back and forth.

Ryobi Reeleasy line trimmer head PROBLEM


sounds like the clip isn't engaging properly. For a bump and feed they have steps that lock when enough cord is set out. If the head is not locked when its on it will recoil in. Try to make sure its not sitting wrong.

Cam does not engage blade


I had this problem with mine. I ended up disassembling the two halves of the trimmer, then reseating the cam. The cam was jammed when I caught the blades on a chain link fence. Good luck and patience.
