spray liberally with wd40, let side and hour spray rag with wd40 and clean blades and look for any bent teeth in blade that maybe binding them as u clean use pliers and screwdriver to move if any found, it is likely that wither sap dried or rust formed and is creating too much friction for blades to move wd40 will help free up blades

SOURCE: blades on hedge trimmer stuck or not moving,

There is a pin in the gear that helps the blade move when the engine is running. That pin may be sheared off and may require a new gear.

I had a similar problem, with a headg trimmer, it was working fine, just stoped. It did not get stuck, or caught up in anything, on dismantiling, as you say, motor running, no drive.
It was get a new one, or bust, so I put a small tack of weld on gear/drive and reduced fuse rating to 8 amps, (from 13 A) incase I got it jamed, its fine now.
I never could figure how the drive got from a gear to the oscillating leaver, must have been a clutch somwhere inside, anyway, weld sorted that out....

I have a 22inch Craftsman Hedge Trimmer, Model No. 315.81591. When trimming a hedge near a chain-link fence, one of the steel links from the fence got caught between the blade guard and the cutter blade. ...


The likely issue is the gear pin has been sheared. The part is no longer available from Craftsman. (P/N from sears: 616255-001)

I had a similar issue with a similar electric trimmer. I removed the old pin and used a split pin and ground it down to the proper size. It's now worked for about 2 years just fine. This requires complete dis-assembly.

My hedge trimmer has a piece of plant caught in it and won't trim


You didn't indicate if it was gas or electric. Either way the plant has to go. if it's electric, see if you can see the fan blade on the motor. Take s small screwdriver and try and turn the motor backwards, which would open the blades. Be careful and dorn't force it and break the fan. Pay close attention on which direction will move the blade.

Bought it today, it just stopped working. Worked beautifully for about 30 minutes. I would think something is caught in the blades, but that doesn't appear to be the case.


Check the blades very carefully! There can be a small twig, wire or most anything in there. Also, plug it into another extension cord to make sure the one you were using is okay. Good luck...Lee

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!

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.
