I believe the trigger is part of the battery handle assembly and you cannot buy these separately. You will have to replace the whole battery handle which is not available anymore according to black and decker service site.

See
exploded parts view

Item 1 is the battery handle. You must have dropped the lower trigger which is inside the handle. I suppose you can open the screws as you would do to get to the battery and once the handle assembly is opened find out where the microswitch sits (this is the bit where the trigger must be pressing). The top switch must only be a mechanical interlock to block the trigger switch. You may have to look for an old unit in the junkyard and salvage the trigger from it.
Alternatively extend the microswitch and improvise your own trigger from another model. see

Ditch that old switch, and buy a better quality switch from HomeDepot or RadioShack that will suit your need. I personally ran into that same problem and brought a 2HP GP switch from HomeDepot. It works way better, than that stock swicth. ( It may require a little modification to the body though.)

I have a Black & Decker electric trimmer. Do I change the guard around or leave it where it is to do trimming? It is on the bottom--should it be on the top and how do I switch it?


You are talking about a string tirmmer, right? Leave the guard where it is; it's there to protect your feet and legs from getting hit with twigs, rocks...anything the trimmer might kick up.

If you are using it as an edger you can keep the guard where it is, just flip the trimmer to do the edging.
