Question about Black & Decker String Trimmer Cordless 12" 18V
The belt slipped off the drive pulley but even though I have all the screws out of the case there is something near the button that releases the shaft that is keeping the case together. Is there a trick to getting it apart?
This is for the Black and Decker GH1000 string trimmer. There are 20 screws to remove altogether. The last screw is under the black label with instructions on using the button to extend the shaft. The screw hole is just above the white line on the label-you have to poke a hole in the label! Very tricky!

Look under the label just behind the swith. There is a hidden screw there. Hope this helps someone

REMOVE THE STICKER ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE MACHINE. THERE IS ONE SCREW UNDER the sticker.

I had the same problem, there is another screw hidden under the black sticker. If you feel around, there is a soft spot. That's it.

I have never worked on these units so I am sending you a parts breakdown diagram, so you can maybe solve your disassembly problem.

Tips for a great answer:
Stand in front of the edger and take a look at the existing orientation of the drive belt if it's still on the lawn edger, and take a photograph of the routing with a camera. Cellphone cameras are good for this. This will help you put the new drive belt on correctly. You can also draw a sketch by hand.
Loosen the flange nut on top of the frame, letting the idler pivot assembly pivot a little. Reach into the back of the edger and pull off the existing belt from around the flywheel pulley. Then remove the spindle belt guard by removing any screws you see there. Remove the belt off the further pulleys and throw the belt away.
Place the new belt onto the spindle sheaves and route it back through the pulleys using your photograph as a guide. In all cases, the belt has to be on the engine flywheel pulley and the idler pulleys. The "Y" on the belt seats into the top pulley and the flat part goes into the bottom. Re-install the spindle guard and re-tighten the nut on the frame that you loosened.
