I use a dremel with a sharpening stone, if u don't have one you can also use a power drill with a small sanding disk (1 inch) and course sand paper (30 or 40 grit). or you can use a bastard file. its too tight to use any kind of angle guide so just take your time and do it by eye. it shouldn't take much to get them sharp enough to do the job, over-sharpening is unnecessary and dangerous, and will make the blades dull faster. sharpen all the free blades, top and bottom, then start the trimmers to advance the blades to free up the sides you couldn't get. i use a light penetrating oil to clean the blades first, then lithium grease spray to lubricate.

You may have a piece of metal between the moving blade and the stationary one. Also the motor may have been at the top of the stroke when it stopped. You may be able to "force" the blade to move a little. This may free it enough to work.

You can definitely pick up a sheer pin for that model. I know ereplacementparts.com has them usually pretty discounted, or just check out a local store, but make sure they are in stock.

SOURCE: My Black and Decker hedge trimmer's blades won't

Your blades are stuck together.
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!

Broken won't move


Check the teeth for something jamed. Has it set up for many years, maybe rusted bar. Does the motor run? If so maybe a cam gear broken or jam. Does the teeth on the bar move when removed from unit? Or does the motor run when bar removed? To many question to ask need more info.

My Black & Decker trimmer starts and stops whenever I move the trimmer in any direction -- any advise as to how to solve this problem?


I'm not familiar with your machine, BUT... that description of symptom sounds suspiciously like a bad/poor electrical connection.

The problem could be in many places:
  • plug
  • cord
  • switch
  • brushes
  • internal electrical wiring
The "solution" to this problem is for someone who knows what s/he is doing, to troubleshoot the defective machine, determine the defect, and properly repair or replace the defective part.

Black & Decker GT370-GT371 20 inch hedge trimmer - electrical fault in front handle causing difficulty in starting/resuming cutting. There is no local servicing and help from B&D was restricted...


Your best bet would be to use http://www.eReplacementParts.com as a source to get your Black and Decker parts and than use their tool repair forum and submit this question. They have licensed mechanics that repair these things all the time, so I'm sure they could put together an easy fix.

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.
